The gym at Oregon's Allison Inn & Spa is adjacent to the spa (convenient for a post-workout treatment) and caters to any exercise need, from cardio on the treadmills, ellipticals or stationary bikes, to strength training with free weights and plyometric equipment. Individual cable TVs are available at most cardio machines, and beautiful artwork of local landscapes by painter Jane Aukohuna adorns the main wall.
Note to fitness buffs: The studio was the first to introduce an innovative piece of equipment to Oregon and the Pacific Northwest, the Kinesis Omega-Duo system. This one-of-a-kind device guides you through 150 full-body exercises for a customized workout. If you prefer to hit the trails, the concierge provides 2.3-, 3.4- and 5-mile scenic running and walking loops around the Willamette Valley luxury hotel.
Inside the studio, you’ll find a variety of national lifestyle magazines, daily newspapers, hot and cold water, and chilled white towels. Personal training, nutrition consultation and fitness classes are available by advance appointment, and in the summer, you can greet the sun with Sunday-morning yoga in the garden of this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel.
We suggest packing a swimsuit to take a dip in the infinity pool, where dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows and views of fog-tipped Douglas fir and pine trees inspire. Or you can always soothe the muscles with a soak in the hot tub.
