    Does Saratoga Springs have a functioning gym?

    Welcome Home, Petra! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney--it's great to meet a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member. I see that you've already arrived at Walt Disney World Resort, so let's get you sorted. 

    I tend to wake up much earlier than the rest of the family when we vacation (teenagers, right?), so I like to take advantage of the opportunity to get in an early-morning workout!  I have quite a bit of experience visiting the fitness centers all around Walt Disney World, and you are in for a treat at the health club at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa! This gym isn't just "functioning", it's thriving!  This 24-hour fitness center has everything you need to suit exercisers at any level. If Gaston was looking for the ideal spot to work on his biceps (he's got them to spare, you know), this would be the place!

    The Saratoga Springs fitness center is one of the largest and best-equipped of the on-property facilities. It features a wide range of cardio equipment, weight machines, free weights, and gear for functional fitness workouts. My ideal Walt Disney World workout starts with an outdoor run to enjoy the scenery around the resort where we're staying. This is also a big help to familiarize yourself with the layout of the resort. I'll end my run at the gym and then hit a strength circuit indoors. Follow up your workout with oh, four to five dozen eggs at The Artist's Palette and you'll be ready to rock the rest of your day!

    Petra, here's a few more of my best Disney fitness and wellness tips to keep you moving throughout your vacation: 
    • Saratoga Springs connects with Disney Springs via a charming pedestrian bridge. It's a really nice loop for a walk or jog!
    • Speaking of Disney Springs...if you find yourself in need of some new exercise apparel during your trip, there are several shops to get you geared up for whatever workout you want to tackle.
    • Rest days are essential to any fitness routine! Make an appointment for a massage at the Grand Floridian Spa for some well-deserved relaxation. 
    I hope this information is helpful, Petra! Thanks so much for visiting planDisney--you're clearly the hero next door and a super success just like our favorite muscular villain. Have a wonderful vacation!

    Ten points for Gaston!
