BEVERLY HILLS, CA — As the summer months quickly approach, millions of people will make a personal commitment to exercise more and live a healthier lifestyle. However, those who travel frequently often find it difficult to squeeze time for exercise into their daily routine. Today's overworked, stressed-out business travelers are looking for simple and practical ways to stay fit when on the road.
More than 90 Hilton Hotels, Suites & Resorts across the United States, Canada and Mexico now provide a great new way for travelers to keep their health and fitness commitments. This new service gives hotel guests the ability to get a great cardiovascular workout on their own schedule in the privacy and convenience of their own room.
The Get Fit With Hilton In-Room Fitness Program is expected to be deployed to nearly 150 Hilton locations by the end of the year. Travelers have the ability to request that a SOLE™ F80 treadmill be delivered directly to their guestroom or to request an upgrade to a treadmill-equipped guest room at time of reservation. SOLE Treadmills are manufactured by Fitness Equipment Services (FES) of Salt Lake City. The SOLE F80 full-size treadmill features a 54-inch Whisper Deck running surface designed for noise reduction, powered incline levels of up to 15 percent and speeds of up to 10mph.
“Our guests tell us that it is easy for them to lose track of their personal commitment to staying in shape when balancing a challenging business travel schedule.
The private, endless running path provided by an in-room treadmill has been a big hit with our fitness-conscious guests,” says Robert E. Dirks, senior vice president of brand management for Hilton.
“Many guests who have experienced the Get Fit With Hilton In-Room Fitness Program are requesting the program when making their future travel plans, so they can ensure the convenience of an in-room workout wherever their travels take them.”
