Marriott International announced upgraded fitness facilities for its Element Hotels brand. The upgraded fitness programs were developed together with Your Trainer and MiiR Bikes. It was decided that Element hotels will get new kinetic bikes that allow hotel guests power their handheld devices while they pedal.
Your Trainer is a new app designed to motivate people workout more actively. With it, it’s possible to enjoy fitness virtually anytime and anyplace. A special series of videos was prepared specially for Element hotels. These videos can be adapted to particular needs of hotel guests. Guests need to input their body type, aims and preferred result, and the system will offer a fitting workout. Guests can synchronize the hotel’s system with their Your Trainer profiles using iOS and Android smartphones. A special three digit code is given upon check-in. This code is used to log into the system and get special workouts from Element.
‘Bikes to Borrow’ is another newly added fitness program at Element Hotels. Participating hotels offer guests to borrow bicycles, helmets and a local map. All the items are offered on a free basis. The bicycles are provided by MiiR. This year all Element Hotels in the world are scheduled to get at least two MiiR bicycles in medium and extra-large sizes. New kinetic bicycles are stationary and offered as a part of Life Cycle program. Currently, five Element hotels already have new bikes that allow guests charge portable devices while they pedal, but the program will be expanded to other properties.
