1 Hotel: A Spartan Gym to keep you in shape
If staying in shape during a business trips means a lot to you, it is not hard to find hotels with great fitness centres. Some hotels offer more facilities than others, like spin classes, CrossFit or Spartan training. 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach in Miami (US) is the first hotel to incorporate a Spartan Gym.
Spartan training involves obstacle racing; it is a way to train and test peoples' limits on strength and endurance. The luxurious 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach built a 4,267 square metres indoor space that lets you do the Spartan Race. In the centre, certified Spartan trainers lead workout sessions that are performed in close proximity to a Spartan yoga deck, private beach and many of the hotel's expansive pool decks.
Christianne Phillips, Director of Mind & Movement at the hotel, claims that the new Spartan facilities attract health and fitness savvy guests to come back time after time because of the availability of the Spartan Gym: “We have many guests who are not only Spartan Race fans but find the gym an experience on its own, and they end up re-booking. The popularity of our gym has rapidly increased since we opened last year.”
