Whether you are a RunDisney enthusiast, work out regularly at home or at a gym, or fall somewhere in between, Disney makes it easy to stay fit when staying at Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World. With beautiful scenery and an on-site health club, there are choices to fit everyone’s needs.
The resort itself is built around Lago Dorado, an ample sized lake, which means you
will naturally get some exercise when going from your room to other areas of the resort. If you are a runner, the lake is perfect for a morning run; there are some areas you can weave in and out of to add distance without veering too far from the resort. Those traveling with tweens and teens will find the set up very convenient because the kids can go to the pools and adults can still keep an eye on them during their workout.
The path around the lake is plenty wide meaning both runners and walkers; on my morning walks, I loved watching the early morning sunrise effects. They produced some fantastic mirror images on the lake providing runners with a little scenery along the way.
La Vida Health Club
If you are like me and prefer to exercise indoors with machines or weights, La Vida Health Club is located right on property at Coronado Springs Resort between casitas 3 and 4 so it centrally located for the entire resort.
The health club itself is generously sized compared to many hotels and they make good use of the space to fit a decent amount of machines while providing a little sense of personal space – always nice when working out. A handful of treadmills face one wall with television viewing and windows to let the natural light in.
There are a ton of weight machines to work your legs, upper body, abs, and entire body with free weights to supplement as needed. I will often see people attach fitness bands to machines when I travel and there are plenty of options for this type of workout as well. A sauna is located by the main desk within the building as well with massage rooms along the hallway, which do require appointments.
And if your feet are tired after your run or workout, Casa de Belleza Beauty Salon is located right inside the La Vida Health Club. If you are on vacation, exercise certainly deserves to be rewarded with a massage or pedicure!
