We came across a great article in the Atlanta Journal Constitution the other day on how hotels are making it easier for guests to stick to healthy eating and fitness habits while on the road. Some have suites equipped with full-sized refrigerators and fully equipped kitchens, while others offer free breakfasts featuring yogurt, cereals and fruit as well as salad bar dinners. Some hotels will even go grocery shopping for guests.
When it comes to fitness, the options are just as nice – free wireless Internet in fitness centers so guests can access their laptops while working out; fitness rooms with free washers and dryers to save on time; and adventurous day trips and activities ranging from mountain biking to yoga.
If the Olympics have inspired you to get in shape, take note of what the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel offers next time you stay with us for business – or pleasure. Our Color Your Plate by Sheraton Fitness dining program makes it easy for travelers to eat healthy on road. The program incorporates a “Nutrition Color Code” to educate Sheraton guests about the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and menu items feature colorful, key nutrients from fruits and vegetables to ensure all meals represent the perfect dietary balance: all it takes is adding three colors from fruits and vegetables to your plate to help stay in shape and increase energy! Plus, the new menus are great for waistlines – all featured items are 500 calories or less.
Guests at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel will also enjoy our Sheraton Fitness programmed by Core Performance training program, which includes training workouts and programs to better fit with a traveler’s busy schedule; exercises and training equipment you can use right in your room; Video on Demand with informational programming; and training and fitness tips that go way beyond your stay.
If you stay with us for a meeting or event, take note: the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel is also one of nine properties in the United States that offers FIT Meetings, created in collaboration with Core Performance based on the integrated approach to training used at their Athletes’ Performance facilities (the premier and preferred place for elite athletes to train). The Core Performance methodology focuses on four main ideas – Mindset (prepare for it), Nutrition (fuel for it), Movement (train for it) and Recovery (rest for it). We provide the healthy meals and snacks, optional group workouts and breaks designed to recharge, tips to stay energized and alert, and tools and tricks to promote sleep and recovery. How much – or little – attendees participate is entirely up to them!
