When you’re beaching all-inclusive and noshing on all that delish unlimited food and drink, and baring your rockin’ beach bod, it’s nice to know that the Barcelo Maya Palace exists. Here’s why: as our 2017 Noble Beach Prize Winner for “Most Fit for Fitness,” they’ve got a fab fitness center. They’ve got loads of calorie-burning classes, the latest body-shaping equipment and personal trainers to assist you in keeping svelte. The interior has been recently remodeled with hard woods, soft lighting and golden tree-like sculptures scattered amidst the room that reflect a bit of the natural beauty of the jungle that surrounds the resort. So, while you’re giving it all you’ve got during your workout, you’ll still have that a touch of that chill beach vibe surrounding you. How cool is that?

Coolio Calorie-Burning Classes. They’ve got so much here. Everything from the stretch-and-bend vibe of yoga and Pilates, the booty-shaking fun of Zumba to the intensity of spin classes, for which they have a beautiful, dedicated area. See it below.

You can also channel your inner Rocky Balboa and take a boxing class. Boom.

The Latest, Epic Equipment. All the machines in the cardio area are brand spanking new from Technogym, a provider of major Olympic Games around the world. These also have all the bells and whistles: touch-screens with access to TV, Internet and apps, along with access to plug in all your devices. Very handy and helpful.
