• Westin Hotels & Resorts’ guests work out in privacy in a number of rooms that include a treadmill or spinning cycle.
• Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts offers wellness facilities that go beyond fitness with exercises such as paddle boarding, kayak tours and outrigger canoeing. Some of the brand hotels offer organic fruits and cheeses instead of chocolate.

• Hyatt Hotels and Resorts has a “StayRight Hyatt” program that has a selection of workout routines catering to fitness-conscious guests.

• Loews Hotels have great gym facilities and maps are available for jogging or walking.
• Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants offer nontoxic cleaning products and on-demand yoga and Pilates workouts in some rooms. Planners can take advantage of out-of-the-box approaches such as starting off the day with group yoga sessions.
• Cambria Suites offer gyms with state-of-the-art Precor equipment and a light fare bistro menu that avoids fried foods.
