Hilton Family Hotels Tone Up with Fitness by Precor


More than 500 new fitness centers deliver promise of superior fitness experience and will help facilitate guests’ New Year’s Resolution to exercise more frequently

WOODINVILLE, WA & BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., December 23, 2008 – The Hilton Family of Hotels announced today that Fitness By Precor facilities have been installed in more than 500 Hilton Family hotels. The enhanced facilities enable fitness-minded travelers to experience the promise of an exceptional workout experience at their favorite hotels. Guests can maintain their fitness regimen while on the road -- particularly timely with the popular New Year’s resolution of exercising more often. The specially designed fitness facilities, launched in late 2006 as a major co-branding initiative, feature Precor strength, cardio and entertainment equipment, complemented by core training, balance equipment and stretch accessories.

Implemented at Hilton, Doubletree, Embassy Suites Hotels, Hilton Garden Inn, Homewood Suites by Hilton and selected Hampton Inn and The Waldorf=Astoria Collection properties in North America, the initiative provides guests with a consistent, club-quality fitness experience, and the ability to customize their workouts.

Hilton noted that guest satisfaction at hotels outfitted with the facilities has increased significantly, by approximately 45 percent.

“Fitness By Precor has been a great success simply because we’re providing fitness-minded travelers what they’re looking for -- choices on the road that allow them to work out the way they want, and follow their regular routine,” said Paul Byrne, president of Precor. “Life on the road is tough enough. We’ve done something about it, and Hilton Family hotel guests see the centers as a kind of oasis.”

Striving for a more consistent fitness offering across participating brands in North America, Hilton Family hotels are delivering a fitness experience that’s comparable to a traveler’s club at home. “Our commitment to enhance the wellness and vitality experience for guests is underscored by the aggressive pace of our installations,” said Joe Berger, area president – Americas operations for Hilton. “Consumers hear that we’re raising the bar on the fitness experience to be on par with leading clubs, but the impact of the extensive facilities does not fully register until they personally experience Fitness by Precor at participating Hilton, Doubletree, Embassy Suites, Hilton Garden Inn, Homewood Suites by Hilton and selected Hampton Inn and The Waldorf=Astoria Collection properties; once they do, guest satisfaction scores clearly increase. This validates research done prior to launching the initiative, which was that a great fitness experience can be a key component of a complete hotel experience.”
