Can I just specify straight at the top of this post that I’m not usually one to go on holiday and take my gym kit. I’m really not. Holidays are for chilling, not working out – in my opinion! But when I read that the hotel we were staying in in London had the most epic views from the 13th floor gym; the sportswear packed itself.
Our stay was at the Doubletree Hilton, Westminster. We managed to get a great deal on Secret Escapes and also my wonderful other half managed to wangle a free upgrade because it was my birthday – win win!
So, the views from the gym, on both sides are to die for – as you can see! With everything you could need from a gym, treadmills, cross trainers, weights, and with a view like this, who couldn’t possibly be inspired to work on their fitness!
Whilst using the free weights you can be looking across to the London Eye and when cross training or running the Thames fills your view. If gyms can be inspiring, then this one is. Usually if I’m lucky I get to stare at the wall, frosted window or some inane tv show, so this was a massive improvement to say the least.
Eighteen months ago when I really got serious about my fitness, I never would have dreamed that this post would make it onto my blog feed – but here I am. I feel so amazing within myself for sticking to my fitness regime and I can really see the benefits.
And packing my gym kit on a weekend getaway is something I can see myself doing far more. Especially if the gym views are like this!
