Whether you are travelling for work or play, it can be tricky to negotiate how to maintain your fitness routine and how to keep your body moving while you are away from home. When searching for hotel accommodation, many people prefer a hotel with a gym included as it allows for them to stay active during their travels.
We understand that staying fit and healthy is front of mind for many of our guests here at the Alex, so we have compiled a helpful guide on what your fitness options are while you are staying with us.
Chris Wilson PT X Alex Hotel
We wanted to offer our guests something special when it came to a gym facility – a step away from the standard hotel gym you may expect which may be ill-equipped and not cater fully to your workout requirements. Which is why we have partnered with the most exclusive personal training studio in Perth, to elevate our guests’ fitness experience.
We are excited to be able to offer all of our guests complimentary fitness classes at Chris Wilson PT’s newly opened fitness studio in Highgate.

Complimentary bikes at Alex
We offer complimentary bikes for all guests at our hotel, giving you the freedom to explore the city on two wheels. Perth is well connected when it comes to bike paths, and offers an array of scenic riverside cycling routes so you can see the best of our city by bike.
Some of our favourite cycling routes include;
Swan River Loop
This scenic route takes you along the picturesque Swan River, offering stunning views of the city skyline and the river’s tranquil waters. Start from the hotel and head east along Riverside Drive, passing by Elizabeth Quay and the Bell Tower. Continue along the shared paths of the Swan River, crossing over bridges and enjoying the natural beauty of the area. You can extend the ride to the Burswood Peninsula and South Perth, or opt for a shorter loop.
Kings Park and Botanic Garden
Located just a short distance from the Alex Hotel, Kings Park is a must-visit destination for cyclists. The park offers various cycling paths amidst beautiful native flora and provides panoramic views of the city and Swan River. Take Fraser Avenue to enter the park, and from there, explore the different paths that wind through the gardens and bushland.
Matilda Bay to Cottesloe Beach
Embark on a coastal cycling adventure by heading west from the hotel towards Matilda Bay. The route takes you along the waterfront, passing by the University of Western Australia and the lovely Matilda Bay Reserve. Continue along the scenic Marine Parade, and you’ll reach the iconic Cottesloe Beach. This ride offers a mix of natural beauty and urban scenery.
Scenic walking and running spots
For those who prefer a leisurely stroll or an invigorating run, Perth has no shortage of scenic spots within close proximity to the hotel. Kings Park, with its beautifully kept gardens and stunning panoramic views of the city, is a favourite among locals and visitors alike. Jacob’s Ladder, a challenging set of stairs, provides an ideal opportunity for a heart-pumping workout with a rewarding view at the top. The Swan River foreshore also offers a picturesque route for runners and walkers to enjoy the waterfront scenery.
