MCLEAN, Va. — Hilton’s newly launched Five Feet to Fitness concept offers health-conscious business travellers and exercise enthusiasts more than eleven different fitness equipment and accessory options inside their hotel room.
The rooms are part of Hilton’s efforts to modernize the hospitality-fitness experience and make it more inclusive for all by redeveloping fitness centers and offering fresh fitness concepts tailored to the hotel’s location and regular guests.
“A guest room that combines a sleep and fully integrated fitness experience delivers an impressive new dimension of convenience and personalization — an industry first,” says Ryan Crabbe, senior director, Global Wellness at Hilton. “Five Feet to Fitness 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.”
Hilton’s Five Feet to Fitness rooms are currently available at Parc 55 San Francisco – a Hilton Hotel and Hilton McLean Tysons Corner. The concept will also be introduced to hotels in Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York and San Diego.
Equipment to be found in the rooms will include an indoor bike from Wattbike and a Gym Rax functional training station for High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workouts. A Fitness Kiosk with a touch screen display comes with the Gym Rax system and will provide guests with equipment tutorials and guided workout routines. In partnership with Aktiv Solutions, Hilton has created more than 200 bespoke fitness videos in categories ranging from Cardio, Cycling, Endurance, Strength, HIIT, Yoga, Stretch and Recovery.
Other features of the room include a meditation chair, blackout shades for restorative sleep, Biofreeze to ease muscle tension, and a selection of protein and hydration beverages.
