chedi muscat: the gym

 

by far,

the most well-planned out, most beautiful and well equipped hotel gym i’ve been to

truly the complementary forces of yin and yang were at play

the combination of design, warmth and comfort in this 100-meter long facility

balanced out the sweat-drenched, testosterone-filled, will-driven workouts

early morning workouts were met with excitement and awe

i felt honored to walk into the gym every morning

enough said …
