Pssh — who’s over here trying to work out on vacation?

Surprise — a lot of us are! And some of us have hope we can get that summer bod in time for Labor Day (2020, but whatever). Weight loss aside, if you’re on this health kick with us, you’ll be happy to know there are plenty of fun activities in Las Vegas to enjoy.

Working Out In Las Vegas

Working out in Las Vegas on Peloton bikes at Nobu Hote gym

Peloton Bike inside Nobu Hotel’s Fitness Center 

Everybody, come get your spin on at Nobu Hotel. This is one of the few spots in town where you can ride the super-trendy Peloton bike. And you don’t even need the fancy cleats (the hotel installed “regular” pedals), the membership or the two grand to buy the bike. But even if you were interested, this can be a fun way to find out.

If you’ve ever done a spin class, the Peloton bike is like having your own private cycling studio. You’ll follow along with an on-screen fitness instructor, streaming from a 22-inch HD touchscreen. You can take either a live or prerecorded session. Either way, you’ll be able to track your progress and work up a sweat. Classes are available in 30, 60 or 90-minute segments. The Peloton bikes are available exclusively for Nobu Hotel guests. Keep in mind there are other eager cyclists out there and you may have to wait a turn.

This blogger got a chance to take the Peloton for a spin (pun intended) and it felt like the smoothest bike ride ever. Plus, it was no sweat adjusting the bike seat and the handlebars had a comfortable grip. And just to switch it up from your standard cycling class, there’s also easy-to-grab dumbbells behind your seat. You can tone those arms while working out your legs. How’s that for a little razzle dazzle?

Yoga In The High Roller Observation Wheel 

Namaste 550 feet in the sky, namsayin? But on the real tip, you will enjoy yoga in the sky inside the High Roller wheel at the LINQ Promenade. You’ll be connecting with your inner self while catching some sweet aerial views of the Strip.

This one-hour class is fit for all levels, so don’t shy away if you can’t perfect your one-handed tree pose (aka the frozen cartwheel). Since this is a Silent Savasana class, you’ll wear headphones that block out all outside noise, with the exception of your yoga teacher’s instructions.

To book or find out more info, call (702) 322-0593.

Cowabunga, dude! Who’s ready to have a rad time surfin’ on the Strip, all while showing off those bodacious moves? Now that we got that old-school lingo out of our system, it’s time for you to get on that Vegas wave on Planet Hollywood‘s FlowRider machine. You have the choice to surf or boogie board. Either way, you’re working out your abs big time. And hey, how many people can say they surfed in the middle of the Strip? You’ll be surprised to hear our favorite part is wiping out. That’s a fun ride on its own.

Each 30-minute session is $25. The FlowRider is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with last reservations at 5:20 p.m. There’s no age limit, but you have to be at least 42 inches to boogie board or 48 inches to surf.

How would you like bowling with your concert? This is what you can do at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas. You can get a fun workout while grooving to your favorite band. And when you want to take a break, the spacious lounge-style couches are clutch. These definitely beat those hard plastic chairs you’re used to at your hometown bowling alley. Plus, the nightclub vibe gives the atmosphere a punch.

Brooklyn Bowl opens at 5 p.m. nightly. After 8 p.m., it’s 21-and-older only. Prices are $20 (per lane) Sunday through Thursday and $25 Friday and Saturday. This gets you half an hour with up to eight people per lane. Shoe rental is $4.95 and you can also purchase new socks for $4.

Tennis At Bally’s Las Vegas 

Love swimming, but tennis is more of a match for you? You can get your game on right here at Bally’s Las Vegas’ tennis complex. We’re certain by the time you’re done you’ll want to jump in the pool next door anyway. Reserve your spot on the court by calling (702) 967-4598.

We have these seven deadly Sin City workouts, but don’t forget: sightseeing and walking along the Strip, dancing the night away and beer pong (kidding on this one) also make for good, unconventional Vegas workouts.

Bally’s Las Vegas Fitness Center also offers hotel guests a gym facility with different types of cardio machines, free weights and circuit training stations.

About The Author

I live for a crazy Vegas adventure, but not in ways you may think. Sure, our nightlife scene is all fun and dandy, but I love discovering all of the city's vegan options, relaxing in hotel rooms and seeing the best concerts - no matter how big or small the crowd may be. Since I've ditched the rain in Seattle two decades ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas entertainment articles for Vegas.com, the LA Times and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I'm not writing, you'll find me spending time with my husband, toddler and two pets.
