You know that thing where you travel and you’re left to figure out where and how and when you are going to get your workout in? Well the Westin Hotels & Resorts is changing the game!
Holly Perkins, women’s fitness expert and founder of Women’s Strength Nation, has recently paired with Westin Hotels & Resorts to kick off their “Westin Wellness Escapes,” a series of well-being retreats led by experts who want to help you achieve new goals! Throughout the WSN Live event, Westin spoiled guests with inspired meals from their SuperFoodsRX and Fresh by the Juicery menus. Westin Hotels is planning similar retreats, or Escapes, covering nutrition to yoga and running, with events being offered internationally. Next up is a triathlon recovery escape in Jekyll Island, Georgia hosted by Chris Heuisler in May.
Westin Hotels has also partnered with New Balance to provide their guests with a new Gear Lending program. Certain Westin properties will be offering New Balance shoes and clothing for a nominal fee of only $5! Whether you want to save room in your carry-on or just want to try out some new gear, or managed to forget something, this is an exciting amenity that ensures your active lifestyle won’t be forgotten when you’re far form home. Add in the hotel’s 5K events, healthier food options, relaxing spas, Holly’s exclusive workout videos available in-room, and exceptional gyms and we can’t think of a better way to vacation!
Westin isn’t alone though. Many hotels are catching on to the wellness needs of their guests and similar programs have been created at major hoteliers around the country.
The Hyatt Regency in Chicago is raising the barre, too. The hotel recently announced that The Barre Code is releasing an original workout video for guests of the hotel. Any guest will have access to the workout on their in-room TV. Even better, The Barre Code workouts utilize key aspects of the hotel room instead of relying on the usual fitness tools. Pillows, towels, and chairs are all incorporated into the workout, though mats and free weights are available at the front desk, as well.
At Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, all you need to do is request some fitness gear and your wish will be granted! Many locations make available yoga mats, stretch bands, and even Reebok workout apparel and shoes. Everything is courtesy of the hotel, however you fall in love with something, you have the option to purchase it and take it with you! Many Fairmont Hotels even offer fitness classes, so you can workout with a group, a nice perk if you travel alone.
At the Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, fitness is taken to the next level. At select Four Seasons locations, they have guided fitness excursions like hikes and biking.
The Sheraton Hotels and Resorts offer another exciting way to stay in shape while on vacation. In-room TVs at the Sheraton make available fitness programs. And the Sheraton Hotels go even one step further and offers perfectly portioned and highly nutritious room service menus.
