Quick gym review: Caesars Palace fitness center

Caesars Palace is definitely Caesars Entertainment's flagship property on the Vegas strip.  The fitness center is open to guests who pay the resort fee only, though this should include Diamond elite members who get the resort fee waived.  Those who haven't paid the resort fee can purchase one-day passes for $25.  Since I was in the area, I decided to check out the gym only with a brief walk-in.


The free weights were in good shape and went up to 100 lb, which is heavy enough for almost everything.  Even better, the gym had an actual bench press.


Lacking was a power rack and squat rack, though there was a Smith Machine (barbell training wheels).  But with a barbell and plates, one could presumably do deadlifts in an open area while grunting and slamming the weights, which is what I did at the Courtyard Marriott in Shanghai, which only had a bench press and no power rack.



One area that the gym did excel in was the latest tech machines.  Ever seen a cable cross with a built-in adjustable bench??  They even had a TechnoGym Kinesis functional training set.  Never tried and never used before...


Literally all the cardio machines including the spin bikes had towels and oversized touch screens to view and follow along with recorded exercises similar to Peloton.  Pretty state-of-the-art if you enjoy long and boring steady state cardio, though you could easily knock out some HIIT on the spin bikes.


Quick thoughts

Caesars Palace definitely goes all in for their gym, which is no surprise since they're considered a 5-star flagship property.  This is a definitely a good hotel gym as you can do almost all exercises with their wealth of machines and free weights.  But no power rack and no battle ropes = no way I'd ever pay $25 to use it for a day.
