The short answer to that question is, no. But, if you are staying at a place that has a sweet, decked-out gym then good for you and go have some fun.
Going to a gym is nice because there is a large variety of equipment, lots of classes, social interaction and because misery loves company.
But, all that equipment may be sweat-stained by that dude that doesn’t know how to wipe things down. And, to be honest, you will not use most of the pieces of equipment anyway.
Sometimes people suck and having to be around them when you exercise just makes the whole experience worse.
Maybe you prefer to sweat, make ugly faces and struggle with your exercises in the privacy of your hotel room.
Regardless of where you like to make your ugly faces, doing so without a plan can leave you feeling lost and wondering, “Where do I begin?”
