Gyms with a View - State of the Art Equipment Combined with Spectacular Ocean Views
Beautiful Fitness Room Views - Waterfront and Green Forest
Gorgeous View from the Fitness Room
Working out is an essential, three time or more a week. Most of us are connected with television and/or an iPod headset. We watch our favorite shows, we listen to our high energy music favorites but what about a health club with a grand view?
Check out the best of the best throughout the world and the amazing views that they offer.
Someday I hope we will have the ability to turn in to our favorite view via technology but for how I wanted to share with you the best that I could find out on the web. If there is one that I missed, please leave me a note in the comment section below and I will be sure to update.
Enjoy the journey, love the view, work hard and your body will thank you!

All Home Gyms Are Great - View or No View
From this fitness professional's viewpoint, all home gyms are great - view or no view. The view of the television is often a mandatory item for many these days but with the advent of listening to pod casts and music with headphones, even the television is less necessary. The home gym below with no view, with atrocious fluorescent lights is actually very charming. The painted brick adds charm and the two tone colors chosen are very charming. The retro fan is also a big hit with me and almost forgives the poor lighting. The motivational posters combined with functional equipment and small wall clock showcase this a serious workout space.

Hotels Are Now Investing In Fitness
Decades ago, the item to invest in for a hotel was the swimming pool. Our new found knowledge or perhaps it is our need for health has changed this focus from the aesthetics of the pool and the hotel grounds to the functionality of the fitness room.
Gone are the days of the token fitness room with broken and obsolete equipment to get bay. To offer the hotel client a state of the art fitness room is now a badge of honor, a must have essential that is often pridefully boasted by hotel managers and owners.
Next Step in Hotel Fitness Needs to Be the Swimming Pool Fitness Equipment
I am awaiting for the next step in this evolution when aquatic fitness equipment is made available to hotel guests. The empty swimming pools that are beautiful visually make me sad with lack of activity. Flotation equipment such as barbells, squoodles (the square noodles that are more dense and softer than the children's noodles) add to the safety and to the vacation experience.

Content is King - Equipment Is King in the Fitness Room
Beyond the best view, beyond wood flooring and a great television, just as content is the king in journalism and blogging, great equipment is the item that is most important in both the hotel fitness room and the home gym. The only item that trumps great equipment is fantastic instruction. Personal trainers who are great at their craft don't need a view and don't even need great equipment. Our human body is the most miraculous piece of equipment in the world. With body weight exercises, we can tone our muscles, we can change our metabolism, we can loose or gain weight if we combine exercise with diet.
The most beautiful site is in the world is not a tropical view of the ocean side, is not the garden, is not the serene waters, the most beautiful site is the feeling you have inside when you know you have crafted a body that is healthy and strong.
