A trip to Telluride is usually planned with outdoor recreation in mind. The mountains surrounding our tiny mountain town offer an endless choice of hiking, biking and skiing trails. However, here at Lodging In Telluride, we understand that some of you may require the amenities of a local gym during your stay.
Perhaps you just started a new fitness regime, or maybe hitting the slopes is just not your thing. Maybe you are recovering from an injury, or you might not have time to indulge in several hours of hiking or skiing. Luckily, Telluride is a fitness lover’s paradise.
There is a large fitness facility at the Peaks Resort & Spa in Mountain Village, as well as smaller hotel gyms at the Hotel Madeline and Lumiere. In town we have a few small gyms, a yoga studio and a Crossfit Gym out in Lawson Hill. Below we have created an overview of the various options available for your Telluride vacation!
This 40,000 square foot award winning spa offers the most comprehensive gym experience in Telluride. The spa includes a multi-level fitness center offering group fitness classes, Life Fitness cardio machines with state-of-the-art cardio theater, Cybex circuit weight equipment, squash court, tennis court, and yoga and Pilates studios.
Customized fitness training sessions include personal training, wellness coaching, swimming lessons and tennis lessons. If you are lucky enough to be staying in the hotel, you can use the facility for free. There is a fee for drop in visitors. Call the spa on 970-728-2590 or visit the website.
8750ALT – The Telluride Gym is a 24 hour gym and fitness facility. This space offers cardiovascular equipment (treadmills, life cycle bike, elliptical, spin bikes etc), plate weights, TRX Suspension Trainers, and hoist multifunction full body trainer. In house personal trainer Nicole Stone-Lankes is always excited to meet other work out enthusiasts. There is also a fantastic Physical Therapy team present at 8750ALT called Balanced Therapy.

As Nicole loves to say “Whatever you do, Just keep moving!”. 8750ALT is located at 317 E Colorado Avenue on Telluride’s Main Street. 970-387-8750.
A personal favorite of ours, Telluride FUEL is owned and run by the insanely buffed, eternally positive and motivated Becca Tudor. Located at the base of Chair 7, the Telluride FUEL space looks and feels a little different to your typical workout facility. Becca’s qualifications lie not just in personal training but also in Pilates and Gyrotonics.
Becca describes her mission to “influence and motivate people to overcome their fears and struggles thus becoming empowered through confidence in themselves. Health and wellness are a part of me and my everyday life. My strong belief is that health is one of the greatest gifts, but unfortunately also one that is often neglected and taken for granted. Addressing both the psychological and physiological aspects of life, my goal is to identify with and educate people to reach their greatest potential in health, fitness, wellness and quality of life”.
Becca offers private and semi private classes, as well as group fitness classes, regular gym membership, gym membership with class access and punch passes. 970-708-1590.

#AsanaOfTheWeek is tittibhasana also known as firefly pose ❤️ To enter the pose, squat with the feet slightly less than shoulder-width apart. Tilt the pelvis forward so the torso dips between the legs. Straighten the legs to lift the pelvis to knee height, then slide the upper arms and shoulders behind the thighs. Place the palms on the floor outside of the feet, then lift the feet off the floor. Extend the legs, stretching them upward as the arms straighten. ❤️ Practicing firefly pose can work wonders for an individual's balance and core strength. The health benefits of the pose include: Strengthens the shoulders, arms and wrists. Improves balance. Opens the hips. Stretches inner groin. Tones abdominal organs and improves function. ❤️ Firefly pose can be quite challenging for beginners. These individuals should practice the pose slowly, straightening the legs as much as possible. Even if the pose can only be held for a few seconds at first, the duration will increase as the practitioner gains balance.
