The 5 Best Workout Spots for Celebrity Sightings

2. Central Park
Although New York City does not have the sprawling open spaces that some areas of L.A. offer, Central Park is the bustling metropolis' crown jewel – and at 843 acres, it gives Runyon Canyon Park a run for its money. A National Landmark for decades, Central Park is a popular spot for working out (and there are tons of ways to break a sweat); though the running track around the Reservoir – just over a 1.5-mile loop – may be the most frequented workout spot, visitors to the park can also bike, kayak, ice-skate (during the winter), and even rock climb on Rat Rock and Cat Rock. Central Park is also a popular spot for movie sets so celeb-sightings are frequent, and Chris Noth, Heidi Klum, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Mark Ruffalo have all been spotted in fitness gear this past year in the park.

Where to Stay: Mandarin Oriental, New York

It's not an icon like the Plaza or the Pierre but so what? The Mandarin Oriental, located across Columbus Circle from Central Park, offers a dizzying array of modern luxuries – a 75-foot pool, one of the city's best spas, sweeping views from nearly every common area (and some rooms have Central Park views), and superb on-site fine-dining options, to name a few – all while it upholds traditional values and outstanding service. For those traveling on a budget, the Excelsior Hotel on the Upper West Side is just a block from Central Park as well.
