All You Need to Know About Akkeron Hotel Gym Workout and Testosterone Boosters

Ever want to keep your body fit and need the most relaxing and secluded place to do that?

Our hotel gym is a go-to place.

Not to worry.

In this round-up post, you will find all you need to know about a hotel gym workout and testosterone.

The benefit of doing workouts is sweet but the process is sweat.

You must be ready to drop ounce and ounce of hot sweats to get there.

Let’s get started already.

In a typical hotel gym, you should find different workout equipment. They include the following.

1) Cardio equipment

The equipment under this heading is good for aerobic exercise.

This is good for the heart and blood vessels.

Aerobic exercise is considered the most beneficial for one’s cardiovascular system.

During the exercise, the heart beats faster It strengthens the heart and blood vessels, improves the flow of oxygen, blood pressure is lowered and the risk of heart disease and stroke is lowered.

Examples of this exercise include walking, running, biking, rowing, exercising on a stair-climber or elliptical machine.

Examples of cardio equipment include treadmills, elliptical and cross trainers, exercise bikes, indoor bicycles, recumbent bikes, upright bikes, rowing machines, stair climbers, and steppers.

2) Strength equipment

Strength equipment helps to maintain the overall health of the body and to keep fit.

This is higher for those who want to build their body and for hardcore athletes.

Strength equipment is really good for building strength.

Examples of strength equipment are resistant bands, barbells, kettlebells and dumbbells, TRX sweat system, sliders, sandbags, medicine balls, slam balls, e.t.c.

3) Recovery equipment

This equipment when used gives the body ample time to recover, replenish lost energy, repair damaged muscle tissues.

For example, a foam roller improves the circulation of blood around the body and is the catalyst to muscle recovery.

Mini band, another recovery equipment, helps to relieve one of muscle pain and soreness.

There is also the percussion gun and high-intensity vibrating fitness roller.

Hotel gym workouts

There are so many hotel gym workouts and the type of training which a trainee would engage in depends on the need of such person.

It is advised that each workout should be for about 20 to 30 seconds and one should observe few seconds break between the workouts to allow a person to catch his breath and break a sweat.

Generally, a complete hotel gym workout should have these three components, they are flexibility, strength, and endurance which can help boost your testosterone levels.

The following hotel gym workout for male and they can be repeated between 10 to 15 times.

For full-body, we have dumbbell goblet squat, plank, bent-over dumbbell row, dumbbell Romanian deadlift, Russian twist, dumbbell bench press-rest-pause, push-ups, two-arm dumbbell rows-rest-pause, dumbbell curls, and dumbbell skull-crushers.

For chest and triceps, we have pushups, dumbbell flyes, dumbbell skull-crushers, and alternate dumbbell press.

It’s a very good alternative to using testosterone boosters that are talk-of-the-town for bodybuilders.

I personally don’t like taking testosterone boosters but many do and if you’re one of those, this great roundup post by Kevin gives you a detailed breakdown of some of the best testosterone supplements in the market right now.

For back and biceps, we have dumbbell curls, straight arm dumbbell pullover, lat pulls down, seated row, pull-ups of inverted row.

For legs, there is the goblet squat, bench step-ups, bodyweight lunges, dumbbell Romanian deadlifts.

For shoulders and traps, there is a seated overhead dumbbell press, two-arm dumbbell upright rows, side lateral raise, dumbbell shrugs.

There are also workouts for women.

It could be for shape, flat tummy, butts, and what have you.

Some of these include the split squat, cross crunch, narrow squat, scaption raise, single leg run, dolphin plank, dip and leg lift, push up and run, Y-T-I raises, side plank crunch, kneeling swim, plie pulse extensions.


Hotel gyms offer training services. It could for an individual or a group session. The cost of the training would depend on the price agreed by the parties.


Generally, hotel gym workouts are cool.

One can choose from amongst the workouts and find that which suits your need and go for it.

I trust you enjoyed the read and found the article helpful.
