Stay Fit While Traveling by Booking Smart
Summertime is prime time for traveling. Whether on the road for business or headed out of town for a family vacation, traveling often can put your fitness routines on hold. But that doesn't have to be the case if you plan your trip well and book the right hotel room. Here are four popular hotel chains that go out of their way for health- and weight loss-minded guests.
- Sheraton Hotels and Resorts: Ask for the complimentary Gym-In-A-Bag. You'll get an exercise mat, resistance band, massage stick, foam roller and a book filled with dozens of great exercises that you can do in the privacy of your room. Flip on the TV for an array of on-demand fitness videos and online training programs by Core Performance. And when hunger strikes, Sheraton's Color Your Plate program offers 500-calorie meals with a minimum of three colors from fruits and veggies, whole grains, lean proteins and healthy fats.
- Westin Hotels and Resorts: Book a signature WestinWORKOUT room and you'll open your door to a find a treadmill or stationary bike, dumbbells, fitness DVDs, resistance bands and stability balls. For avid runners, the RunWestin program includes scenic group outings with a running concierge, or you can request three-mile and five-mile running/walking routes from the front desk. Forgot to pack your workout gear? You can borrow New Balance apparel and running shoes with disposable insoles for a nominal charge.
- TRYP by Wyndham: Book a signature Fitness Room stocked with your choice of an elliptical machine, exercise bike or treadmill, plus an exercise mat and complimentary fitness wear kit that includes shorts and a t-shirt.
- Fairmont Hotels and Resorts: Request a Fairmont Fit kit - a set of Reebok workout clothing and shoes, an MP3 player pre-loaded with workout-friendly music, a yoga mat and a stretch band. You can use them throughout your visit, then return them or purchase and take them home with you. Most locations offer BMW Cruise Bikes to check out. And if you're a yoga enthusiast, you'll want to consider a stay at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in Arizona to try Aerial Yoga, or the Fairmont Orchid on Hawaii's Big Island, offering Floating Yoga on stand-up paddleboards.
