Summer travel plans are heating up. But staying in hotels can mean wasting all those hours you spent toning up and slimming down. Right? Wrong! Hotels are increasingly incorporating fitness into your stay and moving beyond the little gym with a sorry treadmill and a few free weights. Think beyond the gym being only for the business traveler and see the latest that many chains are setting up to keep you happy and healthy during your stay.
Burn, Baby, Burn
A trip might seem like the perfect time to let go of your routine at the gym, but we all know how we like to indulge when we travel. Maintaining your workout regime only enhances your trip and often gives you the option to try something new. These hotels know that it can often make your time with them more enjoyable. Check out what some chains are offering before you book your next trip.
The Westin hotel chain really knows how to pack a punch. Step inside their 24/7 fitness center and be dazzled by their state-of-the-art machines. No dimly lit rooms with one treadmill here. Not content to stay indoors? Westin has RunWestin with mapped out 3-5 miles runs you can do solo or with a group led by hotel staff. Don’t want to leave your room? That’s fine, too. The hotel offers in-room workout programs online and has a gear lending program with New Balance in case you forgot anything.
Encompassing all that a city has to offer is what this hotel group is about and that means following up on your fitness. Not only are there fitness centers on location but Premium rooms come complete with your choice of an exercise bike, elliptical or treadmill in your room. Workout gear like shorts and a t-shirt are provided with an exercise mat, mineral water and extra hotels. Get your fitness on whenever your schedule allows and make the most of your trip.
Book your next journey with Marriott and ask about their ‘Travel Well’ program. In an effort to help you stay fit the hotel chain is offering a package that includes complimentary fruit plates with water, a designated fitness concierge, access to their 24/7 fitness centers and hashtag motivation to stay up to date on the latest area attractions that will get you outdoors and staying fit.
There are more hotels to keep you motivated like the Sheraton and Hyatt to name a few. All you have to do is a little research and you too can stay fit and happy on your next family adventure or business trip.
