I was wondering what sort of exercise equipment is available at the different complexes. The website mentions weight rooms, but are there areas with cardio equipment available too? Are there any major differences between the complexes? I'm still trying to decide which area is going to be the best fit for me. I'm a runner and I'm worrying that there won't be any alternatives to running in the FL heat.

If I remember correctly Vista had treadmills which means the others would too.

I personally despise treadmills! I can't wait to be able to run around orlando!
But given the size of the complexes i assume the fitness rooms will be pretty packed.
Im just going to try to run in the afternoons or early mornings.


Wooo running!!!

Yes, it does :D

I was watching a video from the CP youtube channel and they gave a tour of Vista Way's gym facilities. It also said that Vista Way has the biggest gym.

Watch the CP's pump some iron :cool1:: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Cym1_jMTNQ

Thanks so much for that link! It was really helpful. Although if that's the largest gym available it's going to be quite the shock from my university's facilities. Let's hope for an early fall this year so it's more comfy outside haha

I was in the vista gym at least 6 days a week. There are a couple treadmills, bikes and elipticals, a stair machine and a rowing machine if you're into that. There's a Smith machine, a couple flat/incline benches, one decline bench, a rack of free weights (15-45lbs), a combination cable machine that has a 2 lat pulldowns, 2 row stations, a set of crossover cables, a pull up bar and one interchangable pulldown. There is also a dip station and an ez-bar you can put plates on. Of course they could have changed some things around or bought new items but that is what was in there when I left in January.

Get ready to deal with people not racking the weights properly and other amateur hour crap.
