Freeway To Health


Take a step towards the hotel gym, and a fitter you.

“Available to each and every in-house guest.” That’s the declaration across the board at every hotel worth its stars in every city. There’s another declaration too. “It comes at no extra cost.”

Yet, the state-of-art hotel gym has long languished, ignored by the busy traveller. In most hotels, the footfall can be pegged at lesser than 50 per cent. Sweta Tyagi, Spa Manager, at the Hyatt Regency Kolkata says, “Around 25 per cent of the in-house guests use the gym.” At the Leela Palace in Bangalore, the percentage of users is a mere 35 per cent. This, despite the fact that these gyms come equipped with the latest in equipment and expertise.

So why does the guest shy away from sweating it out? For the first timer, stepping onto the hallowed grounds might be unnerving. The fear of an injury looms large, and the possibility of falling flat on one’s face is an even graver fear. That’s when the trainer comes in. The trainer cannot just help figure out how to work the intimidating equipment but can also customise a workout regime for that will erase all weary traces of the frequent traveller. Rejuvenation, mindset and nutrition are all key goals at the plush hotel gym.

A set of gym attire, a pair of light trainers and a push of the gym doors is all that is needed for healthy living. At no extra cost.
