Fit Travel Tip: Inquire About Fit Amenities at Your Hotel

I recently took a trip out to Lake Tahoe and stayed at the Hyatt Regency there. I've always been a fan of Hyatt hotels because they tend to have great gyms and fitness programs for their guests. With its new StayFit program, most Hyatt gyms are open 24 hours a day so you can work out whenever you want. Now, the Hyatt is also offering some pretty sweet in-room fitness amenities.

Since we were traveling with the girls, we booked a suite because for the space factor. When we arrived to our room, I was delighted not only by the super-spacious room, but also the stationary bike inside it! Sometimes it is nice to escape to the gym, but I often have trouble fitting it in. With a stationary bike in my room, I had no excuse not to exercise. Later I asked the front desk what to do in the future if I wanted a room with a bike, and they said to ask if there are any available.

The whole experience made me think that it pays to be proactive when it comes to your fitness needs, especially when traveling. If I had not lucked out, I would have never even known that having exercise equipment in your room was an option. My guess is that most hotels offer many more fitness and health amenities than meets the eye, you just need to ask the front desk or concierge so you can take full advantage and stay fit while on vacation.

Great tip! I always scope out the fitness rooms before I book a hotel, but I never thought to ask about anything beyond that.

it's funny - one of my co-workers tells me that she always requests the room that has a treadmill in it when she goes there since she's a runner and likes to work out. for me - as long as there's a good fitness center for me that i can get in and not have to wait for a machine - i'm a happy camper. i hate being on vacation and losing my routine. it's comical too since i'm going to mexico in a couple weeks and my fiance looked at the property and reminded me that they have a GREAT fitness center so i can work out even when i'm out of the country.

Good tip, because some even have free passes to sweet gyms in the area. I used to work in a hotel that had dvd players in the rooms and we offered a library of movies, including workout vids. So it never hurts to ask what the hotel's got in the arena of workout equipment and amenities. Also I love that some hotels offer rooms furnished with actual equipment, how fun!
