Hilton hotels ensure that week off need not mean workout off. So that travel does not slay fitness, they launched ‘Five Feet to Wellness’. It provides guests with indoor bikes for long or short interval style training, Gym RaxTM training stations with apparatus for strength, core, suspension workouts, and more than 200 custom-built fitness videos offering classes in HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), Yoga, Stretch, Recovery, it’s an in-room wellness concept that brings over eleven different fitness equipments and accessory options into the hotel room. Hilton hotels know very well that not all travellers are fitness junkies, some are mindful as well. That being a major consideration, they also present meditation chair, blackout shades for a restful nights’ sleep, Biofreeze to ease sore muscles, and a selection of protein drinks and beverages in order to restore energy and regulate hydration.
This new convenience aspect is a step by Hilton hotels towards modernizing hotel fitness experiences and offering a more tailored and personalized approach — a big step away from twenty years ago when Hilton became one of the first major hotel brands to standardize hotel gyms. “A guest room that combines a sleep and fully integrated fitness experience delivers an impressive new dimension of convenience and personalization — an industry first,” said Ryan Crabbe, Senior Director, Global Wellness at Hilton. “Five Feet to Wellness has been thoughtfully engineered to serve as a guest’s personal wellness stage, complete with sports performance materials and best-in-class gym accessories. Guests will quickly realize we have gone much further than simply placing a piece of equipment in a room.”
In addition to hotels moving into the wellness trend, gyms are also touching the hospitality industry. Hilton’s new guestroom, which is creating a fitness environment, is currently available at Parc 55 San Francisco – a Hilton Hotel and Hilton McLean Tysons Corner and is coming soon to markets including Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York and San Diego.
