We understand the difficulties of staying fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle while traveling, but we also know how important it is to so many of our guests
San Francisco, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) June 02, 2011
Kimpton’s Hotel Palomar San Francisco, a boutique downtown San Francisco hotel, is helping guests maintain their healthy lifestyles with its “People In Motion” program, a daily and ongoing initiative that celebrates the health and wellness priorities of guests with morning guided runs and bicycles available for loan.
Available every morning at 7 am, hotel guests are invited to join a member of the hotel team on daily guided jogs throughout San Francisco. Runs are usually between two and three miles and all running levels are welcome.
In addition to the running program, guests who are seeking an active exploration for seeing the sites can also borrow one of the hotel’s 12 Dutch bicycles and enjoy a ride around the city. The bicycles are free of charge during the daylight hours, and are given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.
“We understand the difficulties of staying fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle while traveling, but we also know how important it is to so many of our guests,” said Christopher Smith, general manager, Hotel Palomar San Francisco. “Our ‘People In Motion’ program was designed to make it easy for guests to bring their healthy habits on the road with them – to start the day off with a quick run, while also seeing the sites, or gaining a good workout while exploring the city on bike.
“We’ve heard from our guests that they enjoy the opportunity to run with other guests and swap stories of the sites they’ve seen, as well as getting the inside scoop on some of the must-see or do places along the running route.”
Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants recently fortified its “stay true to you and your lifestyle” mantra by introducing new tools to inspire healthy living on the road. The company’s Mind.Body.Spa program offers guests various resources to maintaining a healthy balance while traveling, such as healthy in-room dining options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, created in partnership with renowned health and nutrition expert Joy Bauer and complimentary on demand fitness offering like in-room Pilates, meditation and core strength programming, as well as 24-hour yoga channel and the use of props and mats that complement individual hotels fitness centers.
In 2008, Kimpton became the first and only boutique hotel company to introduce organic and paraben-free spa products to its in-room spa treatment program. Kimpton’s wellness initiatives continue to come to life in different ways with new endorphin-boosting activities available at different hotels nationwide.
