Elevations Hotel & Spa

This is hands down the finest hotel gym that I have ever accessed.  That title previously belonged to the Mirage in Las Vegas.

Walking in, I was taken aback to find 3 Power Lift Half Rack stations with Platforms and even platform ramps.  They had Power Lift Pro Series Multi Angle Benches and even Power Lift adjustable Plyo Boxes.  They had an off brand GHD, a bunch of Cybex machines, plenty of cardio equipment and dumbbells that went up to 90#.

Saturday Workout - Snatch technique, power snatch, overhead squat, GHD hip extension, GHD sit-ups, pull-ups, box jumps (21.5", 24.5")

Sunday Workout - Deadlift, GHD hip extension, GHD sit-ups, pull-ups

Power Lift Plyo Boxes.  These things were incredibly comfortable.  Per the website, smalls adjust from 21.5" to 31.5" in what appears to be 2" increments based on where you put the pins (21.5", 23.5", 25.5", 27.5", 29.5" and 31.5").  I was using it on the lowest and second lowest setting, but still tweaked my left calf.  If I have the opportunity, I will definitely buy one of these as they are cheaper, more stable and more adjustable than a full set of soft plyo boxes.  Power Lift also offers them in standard (31" to 45") and X-Large (36" to 60").  Currently there is a standard one for sale in South Bend, IN for $250 on Ebay.
