  Check Availability BEST RATES GUARANTEED

Professional athletes have called the newly outfitted gym at the Kimpton Alexis “the best hotel gym ever,” and it snagged the Shape magazine Healthy Travel Award for “most fun” in the hotel gyms category. Come to the third and fourth floors to see what all the hype is about. Above, a cardio room covered in a mural of Seattle’s skyline helps you get your heart rate up, while below, a functional fitness room offers up monkey bars, a bouldering wall, rings, and much more.

Come On, Get App-y

Traveling can wreak havoc on your exercise routine, but it doesn’t have to. Take your fitness high-tech with these apps:

  • Strava: Track your runs, rides, and hikes, and then for all you competitive types out there, compare your performance on a specific section of a road or trail to other athletes who’ve done the same route.
  • Yonder: When you land in a new place, hit the local adventure activities running with Yonder, which curates outdoor adventures recommended by those who’ve been there in their Gore-Tex before you.
  • Sworkit: For those times when you wish you had a personal trainer in your pocket, Sworkit delivers workouts based on what body parts you want to work and how much time you have, complete with video instruction.
  • Daily Yoga: When you want to get in a quick yoga session — a great de-stresser for weary travelers — this app has tons of classes to choose from, with both audio and visual cues.
  • Zombies, Run!: Sometimes it can be tough to work up the motivation to exercise when you’re on the road. But when you need to get to one of humanity’s last remaining outposts while gathering supplies and rescuing survivors along the way? Well, that kind of incentive will make it a whole lot easier to roll out of bed for a run.

The Right Path

Thanks to Seattle’s mild climate and outdoorsy spirit, running and biking trails abound. If you need a new pair of shoes before hitting the pavement, try nearby Sound Sports, a locally owned shop that focuses on getting you just the right fit for your stride. For a set of wheels, borrow one of our complimentary PUBLIC bikes or check Spinlister.com to rent a bike from a Seattleite who’s your size. Once you’re ready to go, check out these trails:

  • Myrtle Edwards Park: Hugging Elliott Bay, this scenic trail goes past the Olympic Sculpture Park
  • Discovery Park: In the Magnolia neighborhood, Discovery Park is a great place to run in a wooded setting that’s still in the heart of the city
  • Burke-Gilman Trail: This 27-mile trail winds through many of the city’s notable neighborhoods, including Ballard, Fremont, and the University District
  • Alki Beach Trail: Keep the Puget Sound in sight as you cruise along this West Seattle trail adjacent to the beach
  • Green Lake: A popular spot for cyclists, joggers, and roller skaters, the path around Green Lake provides for plenty of good people-watching in addition to sweat sessions

Fitness Meets Fun

Our gym is inspired by the functional fitness movement — if you’ve participated in a program like CrossFit or P90X, it’ll probably feel familiar to you. If you’re not used to monkey bars, rings, and a climbing wall in your gym, think like a kid. Just playing around can be a great workout. For more structure, drop in to Xplore CrossFit, located a few blocks away, for some ideas, then step into the Alexis gym with a whole new outlook.
