Fitness-Minded Travelers Find Hotels with Fit Hotel Directory

KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ — Gone are the days of searching for a hotel’s tiny fitness room or gym, full of out-dated, bulky equipment simply to get a good workout. Guests have long been demanding quality, in- hotel fitness equipment and is answering back resoundingly with its directory of hotels with top-notch gyms and fitness rooms.

“Finally travelers can get a great workout without having to scour the phone directory or ever leaving their hotel. If you’d love to have a treadmill, stationary bike, yoga mats, free weights or stretch cords in your hotel’s gym to use whenever you want, your favorite hotels, motels and other lodging types are stepping up and providing guests with lavish fitness and exercise offerings,” states company spokesperson Brian Bailey.

A previous survey of 300 business travelers conducted by Lieberman Research Worldwide found that hotel fitness rooms frequently disappoint. 64% of business travelers say that hotel fitness rooms “seem like an afterthought,” 75% say the quality of workout rooms is inconsistent from one hotel to the next and more than half the travelers (55%) decided not to use a hotel workout room because it was in such bad condition.

Fit Hotel Directory, organized geographically, lists each hotel’s contact information and amenities, a description of the workout facility when provided, as well as color photographs. Visitors can search for a hotel by clicking your choice of state and city. A map of the country aids in selecting regions. The site also offers airline and car rental contact information as well as travel tips and a free newsletter.

“Our staff is working overtime to add properties to the directory and we intend to continue adding helpful services to our Web site for both travelers and hotels. Additionally, we’ll be launching International sections in early 2006,” said Mr. Bailey.
