The Royal Athletic Club

Last night John's workmates took us to their gym. Wow, I've never been in such a nice gym before. It's called The Royal Atheltic Club, and the pictures on the site don't do it justice. It's in a new building near a park out in the spendy area of town barely a ten minute drive from our hotel in Old Town.


You walk in and check your coat at reception, then go to your gender specific locker room. I guess the only way to describe it is that this place is half spa, and fitness. They've got top of the line cardio and weight equipment in two different rooms. I got on the eliptical for 20 minutes and watched dubbed ER. Then there was some trainer guy there that helped me, John didn't pay much attention but thought that I'd get hit with a 200lt charge afterwards for personal training. I did some ab work, arm work, and leg work, but I was itching to go to the spa side of things, so left early while the three guys were still doing weights.

First I did the dry sauna, then the cold shower misty thing, then the steam room which the workmates called a Turkish bath. You can see the area here to the left, and all of that was dark and steamy with a neat starlit structure on the ceiling. Then I went to the relaxation area (shown above) and fell asleep near the jacuzzi. The total for John and I including bottled waters and juice and the juice bar was 64lita, about $21.

The spa treatment is even better with a killer exchange rate, eh? LOL

Glad to see you're enjoying yourself. :)
