Helping Travelers Maintain a Fitness Routine While On the Road

We just read a great article by USA Today's Nancy Trejos about hotels making it easier to stay fit on the road. More hotels are offering unique fitness programs in an effort to appeal to travelers who are committed to keeping up with a fitness routine. Not surprising, these offerings coincide with similar efforts to bring healthier dining options to hotel restaurants and room service menus so travelers can avoid packing on the pounds while away from home.
The article highlights some fitness options available to guests at various hotels across the country, including the Sheraton (and the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel). Notes Trejos, "Guests at Sheraton Hotels and Resorts also have access to four 30-minute video-on-demand workouts for free" and "can order a complimentary 'workout in a bag,' including workout cards, a workout mat, foam rolls, resistance band and massage stick to be delivered to their room."

According to a story on ABCNews.com, these packages are popular among both die-hard cleansers who regularly do them at home as well as travelers looking for something different to try while on vacation. And for those not ready to give up on solid food entirely, some properties offer juicing bars as well to help them ease into the fad.
