A new type of suite from Hilton allows guests to work out in the privacy of their own room with over 11 different fitness equipment and accessory options. This new type of room, which recently launched at Hilton McLean Tysons Corner and Parc55 in San Francisco, includes a storage bay with a large variety of fitness accessories that support different types of exercises such as suspension, body weight, core, yoga, HIIT, meditation and family fitness options.

The workouts are guided by the Five Feet to Fitness kiosk. The touchscreen kiosk provides over 200 bespoke guided exercise tutorials and over 25 classes, all using the equipment found in the room. Sand bells, medicine balls, a TRX bodyweight workout system, a meditation chair, yoga mats, and a Wattbike can all be found in the Gym Rax bay.

 

 

To help eliminate injuries during workouts and to mitigate noise for other guests, Five Feet to Fitness rooms all have a section of Ecore Flooring’s Forest rx flooring. The floor combines 5-millimeters of Ecore’s recycled rubber backing with Polyflor’s Forest fx surfacing, which generates a 17 percent force reduction to help absorb impact and lessen the strain put on athletes’ joints.

For post-workout recovery, each room will offer a selection of five beverages available without any additional charge. The drinks offered are Vitamin Water, Zico Coconut Water, Dasani water, Core Power protein shakes, and Powerade. Biofreeze, a topical analgesic that uses menthol as a natural pain reliever, is included in the bathroom amenity selection.

Hilton has plans to expand the Five Feet to Fitness program to other markets including Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York, and San Diego.
