My Hopeless Gym Experience at the Mandalay Bay Spa
So… I genuinely object to paying US$20/day to use the hotel gym. But, needs must sometimes and so it was that I found myself at the Mandalay Bay Spa $20 the poorer this morning. Been working reasonably hard in the build up to the K1 road race in a couple of weeks so needed to get some time in on the stationary trainer.
Well, what an utterly useless experience that was. I got inside the Gym to find that;
- They had two consumer grade exercycles and that was it as far as bikes went.
- None of the cardio equipment was available anyway
So even if I had been able to get on the equipment it wouldn’t have been much good for the Interval workout I had planned- I ripped the crank off a consumer grade exercycle in Bangalore this year so it’s just downright dangerous.
In the end I threw my toys out of the cot, got myself a refund of my fees and went for a run up the strip.
Think I’ll try and find someone friendly at the Luxor for the Gym tomorrow and will not be staying at the Mandalay Bay for MIX10 next year that’s for sure.
