Dear Hilton Fitness Center Planning Committee: Was placing the giant TV behind the treadmills and elliptical machines intentional? Watching “Shark Tank” over my shoulder is a new experience!
This is the gym at the Hilton Parsippany in New Jersey. Yes, there are individual tiny screens on the treadmills and bikes, but the complimentary headphones were subpar — and audio from “Shark Tank” was the dominant sound in the room.
Prediction: There will be some needless and preventable injuries (neck problems, twisted ankles) from guests who prioritize entertainment higher than exercise.
