Yes, you sure can get a lot of terrific food at your average Las Vegas buffet. Start with the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesar’s Palace, and you might just eat a ton of food.
But the thing is, you will have to pay for it, one or another. And we’re not talking about just the money, either. You’ll have to work out hard if you don’t want those extra calories turning into extra body fat. And you’ll have to work out at 90% of your maximum heart rate to burn off just 500 calories in an hour. Just how many calories did you consume at the buffet?
The good news is that Las Vegas isn’t lacking when it comes to excellent gyms. When you’re trying to get a room in Las Vegas, try to keep this list of excellent hotel gyms in mind:
The Cosmopolitan Hotel Gym
This might just be the best all-in-one hotel gym in the city. The hotel is truly determined to impress its guests with its glamorous amenities, and that goes for the gym as well. Or in this case, the gyms.
First off, you have the Boulevard Fitness Center. It’s open 24 hours a day for hotel guests, and it features lots of equipment. You have stationary bikes, ellipticals, and treadmills for cardio. There’s an area with the free weights. And you have the revolutionary Technogym equipment as well.
Then there’s the Chelsea Fitness Center, which at more than 5,000 square feet is more than twice as big as the Boulevard Fitness Center. It’s just that it’s not open 24 hours. You get more cardio equipment here, along with a free weights area and a movement studio. And there are tennis and pickle courts outside, too.
And if these gyms aren’t enough, there’s also a pool for the Poolside Mat HIIT class.
Aria Hotel Gym
If you insist on a luxurious gym, the one at the Aria might be more your style. You can use state-of-the-art facilities, and even a personal trainer. You have the Technogym equipment, lots of new cardio equipment, and plenty of free weights. And there’s even a climbing wall.
You can relax with the spa services as well once you’re done with the workout. The services include a body treatment, massages, facials, and waxing.
Bellagio Hotel Gym
Now this might be the best gym if you really want to stay fit even with all the buffets in town. Their hotel gym has a ton of equipment, with a wide range of options. You have barbells and dumbbells, along with benches. There are cable machines, rowing machines, stationary bikes, ellipticals, and treadmills.
Plus, lots of trainers give out workout classes, so you can get a session for boot camp workouts, yoga, spin classes, barre, and Pilates. A personal trainer will also be available upon request.
It’s not open 24 hours, but the operating hours are reasonable. On weekdays, they open at 5am and close at 7pm. On Saturdays and Sundays, it’s from 6am to 7pm.
The Westin Las Vegas Hotel and Spa Gym
This is where you stay and work out if you want to get off the Strip. The Strip may be a bit more expensive and more crowded, so going off the Strip does come with some benefits.
This might be the best gym off the Strip, even if it’s a bit smaller than the ones on the Strip. It’s open 24 hours, and the fitness center is brand-new with lots of weight machines, free weights, and cardio equipment. There’s even a Smith machine.
You get access to the fitness center when you pay the resort fee, and you can reserve the tennis and pickleball courts. You might even be able to pay a round at the Las Vegas Country Club!
