Harrah’s Fitness Center and Diamond card use

With all the benefits we receive from Total Rewards for being Diamond Card members, I seem to neglect to use them. There are freeroll grinders in this town who only survive due to Diamond Lounges…

I decided to spend an afternoon on the strip and enjoy the Harrah’s Spa and Fitness Center and then fill myself on the free finger foods at the Harrah’s Diamond Lounge (actually they had Orange Chicken which was great!).

When I arrived at the 4th floor Spa and Fitness center at Harrah’s Las Vegas and brandished my Diamond Card to gain access, my expectations of a mediocre gym experience were quickly squashed. In fact, I was about to enjoy a rigorous workout in a well-appointed, clean, and spacious fitness center with a view.

One thing that will annoy me about resort fitness centers the most is lack of windows or windows that face inner corridors. Not a problem here! One side of the fitness center is floor to ceiling glass facing the pool.

The fitness center also had plenty of free weights and enough resistance machines to cover any part of a workout. With a Diamond Card, there is no need for a gym membership if you are a local in Las Vegas.

Harrah’s Diamond Lounge

Harrah’s really knows how to treat gamblers and it is by far my favorite Diamond Lounge. They always have salads and their selection of hot foods has more variety.

Nothing like a big workout to get my appetite up!
