Hotels with Access to Fitness 

Consider these two-for-ones. Not only are these hotels equipped with fitness centers, but they are also located near some of our top outdoor attractions. This will give you a choice of working out inside or outside. Walk along the Ohio River on 7.5 miles of pathways of the Ohio River Greenway or rent a bike and take a trip across the river on the Big Four Bridge that connects southern Indiana and Louisville’s Waterfront Park. Or how about a simple stroll through scenic Charlestown State Park? Wherever you land, try these hotels for indoor and outdoor fitness options.

Sukhino Salt Cave in Southern Indiana

Sukhino Float Center
Located in the Kalu Center in downtown New Albany, Sukino offers floatation therapy and halotherapy, both of which are centered around the therapeutic properties of salt, in its various forms. Float therapy involves stepping into their spacious float rooms and lying back into 10 inches of skin temperature water that's mixed with over 1000 pounds of Epsom salt. You'll float effortlessly for up to 75 or 90 minutes, enjoying silence or music, colorful lights, or pure darkness. Not only is floating great for relieving aches and pains in the body, but it's also a blissful break for your brain. To experience the benefits of halotherapy spend 45 minutes in their playful, peaceful salt cave. Breathe in the salty air while you rest in a treehouse cave environment as you've never seen. Halotherapy is not only relaxing and rejuvenating, but it can be helpful for respiratory and skin conditions.
