Fitness is part of my life and my career and while traveling it is extremely important for me to stay active and get my work outs in. After 36 hours of flying I was itching for my work out because I use those work outs to detox and get my blood flow pumping in my body specially while sitting on a plane for 17 hours, I was feeling achy and sore and a work out sure cure those body discomforts ride away. I was excited to try the W Hotel Bangkok as the gym seemed to be very well equipped with free weights, treadmills, elliptical machines, medicine balls and a few great upper body machines.
I took the elevator from my floor 24 to floor number 6 which is where the pool, spa and fitness center is at.
W Hotel Bangkok – Floor Description
It was around 5:00am when I decided to get my work out started – two reasons why, I couldn’t sleep and I had nothing better to do that a time, so it was fitting to get my work out in and get my day started the right away.
Arriving at floor number 6
The installations were incredible and well kept. Everything was super clean and organized. Throughout the day they have staff constantly cleaning this area and making sure everything is clean and organized, for me thats a big plus – It is definitely an area that requires that special attention and devotion to make sure it is clean for their guest.
Before I begin the overview of the weight room and fitness zone – I want to point a few things within the facility. There is a station where you can collect a pair of headset to use incase you didn’t bring your own, the towel rack its there as well but normally they are towels at each treadmill waiting for you, cleaning wipes for the machines, there is also a bowl of apples (free of charge) to eat wether before or after your work out and last but not least they also offer two types of water: Cold or room temperature water.

W Hotel Bangkok Fitness Center – Bottom line
There isn’t much to say about this location or things they should fix or improve on. In my opinion it is a well kept area and they have everything the guest should need during ranging from free weights, medicine balls, mats, machines and treadmills. The station where the guest can get the towels, headsets, fruits and all the other amenities its a great bonus, not surprised on that but surprised in the aspect that they keep it well stocked up for their guest.
During my 8 day stay in Bangkok I was able to get great work outs done at the facility and the view from the city from the gym is also very nice.
