The 4,004-room Aria Resort & Casino, the flagship property within CityCenter in Las Vegas, has upped its wellness game by introducing major upgrades to the 6,000-square-foot fitness center.
The facility is now equipped with treadmills and strength machines from Technogym, the same equipment supplied to athletes at the Olympic Games. An infinity rock climbing wall has also been added to the facility, and a cryotherapy chamber will be opened soon for restorative, post-workout sessions.
 
"Recognizing that health and wellness is important to our guests when they travel, we wanted to provide the best facilities to accommodate their needs," said Paul Berry, Aria's vice president of hotel operations.
 
Adding technologically advanced workout equipment opens up more possibilities and convenience for travelers: The machines can connect wirelessly to mobile devices, which allows guests to track, save and share biometric and training data throughout their travels. The connectivity also allows guests to access immersive workout experiences, or streaming services and social media networks for entertainment and productivity.
 
For climbing enthusiasts, the new Treadwall is a stand-up conveyor belt with multiple speeds and surfaces, which simulates scaling a rock formation.
 
The soon-to-debut cryotherapy chamber, meanwhile, exposes the body to sub-freezing temperatures for a short period of time after workouts. The device is said to help with pain management and reduce inflammation.
 
Aria's fitness center can be found next to the property's spa and salon, and features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the pool deck.
