I have worked out in a lot of weird locations.
When I go on a trip, I just know the gym won’t be what I am used to.
I have found amazing fitness centers with pools, weightlifting and tons of machinery. The AC system is set perfectly, there is a bathroom and water cooler. I also have been stuck working out in a lawn, parking lot or running through a foreign city. The worst gym I had ever encountered was when the hotel combined the gym with the spa. The spa had hot tubs, steam rooms and saunas. The whole spa was set to a very warm temperature. The thermostat must have been set to around 90 degrees. It was hot, sticky and sweaty. I figured the gym next door wouldn’t be the same temperature. Well the only thing separating the two rooms was a thin curtain. The treadmill, bike and jump rope all were basically in the hot tub area. The thermostat for the heating system ran the entire area. I sweated buckets the entire time I worked out. I ended up using towels from the steam rooms and using them to mop myself. I also had to be careful about hydration and not overworking myself. I would have killed for some air conditioning. I worked out in my underwear since I was the only one in there everyday. It is no wonder though. Who works out with the heating system on? It was a very awful experience. I have never made that mistake again. I now look at detailed pictures of the gym online.
