Hilton launches new in-room wellness concept
The Hilton hotels group has launched Five Feet to Fitness, a new in-room wellness concept.
The concept introduces a new Hilton room category that offers guests 11 different types of fitness equipment and accessories. The global hotel group explained that the introduction of Five Feet to Fitness is part of a strategy to offer a more modern and inclusive fitness offering.
This includes catering for those preferring to work out in the privacy of their own room or looking for greater workout flexibility during their Hilton stay
Ryan Crabbe, senior director of global wellness at Hilton, said: “We know that no matter how determined people are to make healthy decisions at home, the ability to replicate those choices are often not as accessible as they should be while traveling.
"We're creating choice and control for guests to drive their own fitness experience.”
The new room category features the fitness kiosk, a touchscreen display that provides equipment tutorials and through. The kiosk also allows guests to access more than 200 fitness videos.
The videos offered cover a wide range of workout areas, from cycling, cardio, endurance and HIIT (high-intensity interval training), to strength, yoga, stretch and recovery fitness routines.
The fitness kiosk forms part of the Gym Rax functional training station, which offers features deigned for core, strength, suspension and HIIT training.
Among the other equipment in the rooms is the Wattbike for indoor cycling, and a meditation chair for mindfulness-focused travellers. The rooms also features blackout shades to aid sleep and a selection of protein drinks for guests to choose from.
Crabbe added: “Five Feet to Fitness has been thoughtfully engineered to serve as a guest's personal wellness stage. The room is made to suit the varied and evolving wellness habits of our guests."
Five Feet to Fitness is currently available at Parc 55 San Francisco – a Hilton Hotel, and Hilton McLean Tysons Corner in Virginia.
It will shortly also launch at Hilton properties in a range of other US locations, including Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York and San Diego.
