It ended up being in a spa

When I went on vacation I booked a hotel that I believed had a gym.

The pictures online showed me a treadmill, jump rope and plenty of space to stretch. I figured it was good enough and booked it. Well, the hotel actually had a health club rather than a fitness center. There were saunas, steam baths and hot tubs. I could store my things in a locker and shower right in the health club. It was all about relaxation and the place must have been set at 90 degrees. The gym was really a small closet with random fitness gear. The gym also was attached to the sauna. So the one treadmill and jump rope were in a small room that was extremely hot. Working out on that trip was extremely difficult. I would steal towels from the spa portion and then use them to mop myself up in the gym. I would strip down to my underwear and hydrate every few minutes. It felt like I was doing a hot yoga session only more intense. I still ran on the treadmill, jumped rope and stretched, it was just awful. The only good thing is that my muscles were super loose. I was able to stretch and feel great after my workout. I would sweat out all the toxins and feel very refreshed after my shower. Ironically I only used the worst part of the spa. I never ended up going in a hot tub, getting a massage or sitting in a steam bath. I just worked out in a very poorly climate controlled gym.
