Staying fit far from home is getting easier and easier. Hotels in Kelowna and around the world, as well as airports, are making fitness accessible and even luxurious.
At the Airport
A new website called Airport.Gyms.com helps travellers get more information about fitness centres in and near airports. In addition to the location of the gym as well as its facilities, site listings include information about the cost, hours of operations and a map so you can find your way around the terminal.
If you’re on your way to Kelowna hotels and you have a layover in Vancouver, the Absolute Spa at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel lets you swim laps or do yoga without leaving the building.
If you have a stop at the San Francisco International Airport, be sure to take advantage of the free yoga room to stretch those legs before a long-haul flight.
At the hotel
Many hotels offer great fitness centres with everything you need to start or end your day with an energizing workout. When you’re searching for Kelowna hotels with a fitness centre, here are some things you’ll want to find out:
Keeping up your fitness routine on the road is easier when you know you have the facilities you need at your convenience.
Hotel wellness has become such a hot trend that fitness centres have become a reason to stay at some hotels, such as the Ritz Carlton Boston Common, which features a full-sized basketball court as well as yoga and boxing studios in its 100,000 square feet fitness centre.
