Your question doesn't really make any sense. To be able to answer it with any level of accuracy, one would have to visit every ship at every cruise line and only then it could be possible to make an assessment as to which ship is best suited to one's needs, not which cruise line.
The size of onboard fitness facilities and the quality of equipment will vary greatly based on the size and age of the ship. Even within a fleet, on equal size ships, the differences are noticeable; newer ship will have the latest and best equipment. Bigger ships should have larger facilities and more equipment. If the Crown Princess has 22 treadmills, then the Oasis of the Seas should have at least 38 of them, in relationship to the number of pax. Does that make it better?
Some ships have very nice, new machines but they're not what I'm used to using at home so they're not necessarily the best for me.
Most ships are equipped with Life Fitness or Precor machines. Most have spinning classes, Yoga and the usual selection of instructed activities. Again, how does that make one ship better than the next?
What I'm trying to say is that this is an impossible question to answer in an unbiased, objective way.
