6 Hotels To Get Fit (& Then Relax!) In Style On The Road

There’s no doubt that top-notch hotels have become invested in their health offerings and amenities. Long gone are the struggle days when the hotel gym was just an unused closet where they would throw a set of dumbbells. The trend has moved towards state-of-the-art offerings — connected fitness and compression technologies are becoming as commonplace as the minibar.

With the fitness industry booming and the expectations of what on-site health options can and should look like having increased dramatically since the pandemic, a number of properties have made it their mission to elevate wellness on the road. That means the travel experience, which can be very draining mentally and physically, can instead be an opportunity to improve your fitness. No more returning home and needing several days to “pick up the pieces” and “recalibrate.” Instead, visitors to the properties below are given the tools they need to come back home feeling better than when they left!
