Maintaining structured wellness programs has become a priority for traveling hotel guests, and as a result, hotels are looking for the best ways to provide fitness incentives and options that suit their needs.
HotelManagement.net interviewed Jason Moskal, VP, lifestyle brands at IHG, Americas, in their recent article “What’s inside the next generation of hotel fitness centers.”
Moskal noted, “Guests want choices and want to be given access to things that allow them to meet their wellness routines on their own terms when they travel.” In addition to IHG, Marriott, Westin and Hilton are taking part in these new health and fitness additions, be it with larger, tailored fitness centers or actually within their hotel rooms.
This past May 2017, Hilton announced a new guestroom concept, entitled “Five Feet to Fitness,” that lets guests work out in their rooms. The concept includes an indoor bike from British cycling company Wattbike and a Gym Rax training station with equipment for strength, core, suspension and high-intensity interval training workouts. The rooms also have a meditation chair and blackout shades.
What’s more, is that the Five Feet to Fitness Rooms also include AtmosAir, allowing guests to breathe healthy, clean indoor air during their stay.
In addition to Hilton Hotels, AtmosAir’s hotels and casino projects include various Hyatt Hotels, Kimpton Hotels, Gaylord Hotels, Hard Rock Hotels, and more.
