Work Out With Us
We've got work out tips and just the place to put them in action.
Exercise is a proven way to improve your quality of life and overall physical and mental wellbeing. The fitness center at The Flamingo Resort & Spa has been renovated with new exercise equipment, and all of our guests have access during their stay!
Incorporating exercise into your daily routine can have many benefits. Exercise releases endorphins which helps boost mood and reduce feelings of stress, anxiety, and depression. Moving your body throughout the day can also promote better sleep and improve cognitive function. All of these things work together to get you in a good mood and ready to face the day. Our SPOKEN properties all have a fitness room where guests can exercise during their stay.
Want to work out but not sure where to start? Try the following to get moving and feel better!
Beginner: Walk on the treadmill at 5% incline, between 2.0-4.0 mph, for 20 minutes. Repeat 2-5x/week
Intermediate: Try the elliptical, Stairmaster, or jog on the treadmill for 20-30 minutes. Aim to keep your heart rate between 115-150BPM. Repeat 3-5x/week
Advanced: Try a long distance run on the treadmill, or check out our new Assault Air Runners – self-powered treadmills that adjust their speed based on your stride. Implement intervals (alternating between sprinting and jogging, or aim for a long-distance run)
Barbell Back Squat:
Dumbbell Seated Shoulder Press:
Cable Rope Bicep Curl:
EZ Bar Skull Crusher:
BOSU Ball V-Up:

To reap the benefits, you don’t need to make major life changes – just slowly start adding exercise to your day. All of the exercises above can be done with the new equipment at the Flamingo Resort & Spa. Need support? They offer personal training 7 days a week – just give them a call to schedule a session. You can also join a group class for a guided workout with people all moving towards the goal of great health.
