There’s more hotel chains ready to deliver any type of workout and meditation equipment – one of them yoga videos.- as a way to make their guests feel at home, while distressing for that business conference they may be attending to.
“Probably fitness equipment is the biggest request we get from guests,” said Vivian A. Deuschl of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. “It’s the biggest preoccupation of business travelers besides getting their work done, so we try to make fitness available on any basis they ask for.”
In-room fitness options aren’t limited to Pilates DVDs and yoga mats, although both are in high demand at most of the company’s 78 hotels worldwide, according to Deuschl. “We do folding treadmills and folding recumbent bikes,” she explained. “The only things we can’t bring to the rooms are heavy weights.”
As their guests are making more requests for fitness and meditation equipment, more hotels are joining the initiative of Ritz-Carlton Hotel. While it is great marketing idea for hotels across country to make themselves more flexible to their guests’ request, this is of great benefit to that stressed out business man, or that that casual guest that feels the best way to relax after visiting a new town is to do a session of yoga, or Pilates.
Now you know you can call the hotel you will be staying at and ask if they have yoga mat ready for you! In some hotels, there are even personal trainers, which we think may also be a good and new industry to belong to. Be a yoga teacher for a hotel maybe the call for you. Imagine being able to share such a wonderful practice that promotes great health management principles, while having the pleasure of meeting people from different places of the world, if you are ready to become a yoga teacher: visit us!
