Up, Down: yes, come on, you can do it! Keep fit and have fun doing it; the gym life is the now like ketchup in everyone’s hamburger. The week is never complete without a trip there for corporate Ghana. Some big businesses like MTN and Lloyds Plaza have incorporated gyms into their facility for staffs.
And it seems like they aren’t the only ones catching the fever. Leisure travellers and tourists won’t hesitate to cross off hotels lacking gyms from their list of hotels in Ghana to be considered. But how at all has this energy-draining, rib-cracking, sweat-producing, pant-inducing activity called gym metamorphosed into a necessity?
Today scores of Ghanaians are setting up a bit of the facility at home. With what they say about a break in visiting the gym disorienting the body, the tradition must continue everywhere you go. If you are always on the move, a business traveller, a tourist or even on exercise medication, there must be a way out.
The solution is in facilities that are so close to us yet are fully business-minded and seldom overlook quality and class. The answer is with hotels in Ghana creating another world with eye-catching and pulling gymnasiums. Thank God for hospitality; praise His name for the hotels that are home-minded and trendy. They envisage the need of the times and act swiftly accordingly. Life goes on like usual with these bunch around.
However, this appraisal does not go for all hotels. And certainly, the marks are uneven for those with the gyms. As we say it in Twi, “ebi didi bi akyi”(not all the gyms are the same). No doubt, it is better with a list of great hotels offering some very cool gymnasiums. Nodding? Then, let’s take a look at 5 of the top Accra hotels with the best gyms that ‘wow’ everyone.
