Easier to Be Fit at Hilton?

Hilton FitnessExercising while traveling has always been an uphill battle. Hilton Worldwide hopes to change that by outfitting over 1,000 Hilton branded hotels with new, hi-tech, customizable exercise equipment.

According to Hilton, research indicates that hotel guests find it important to have access to a range of first-rate fitness equipment, so Hilton has updated options to better meet guests expectations.

Equipment is expected to include brands like Precor, Life Fitness, StarTrac and TechnoGym and will include touch-screen consoles, iPad compatibility, ePub readers, pre-loaded samples of exercise, personal TVs and Internet connectivity.

At its headquarters in McLean, VA, Hilton has been asking hotel owners and employees to test equipment, design, snacks and amenities for its fitness centers and provide feedback. The rollout of the new gym will be done in phases, with approximately 300 full-service hotels, and will continue through 2012.
