Kempinski Hotels has partnered with fitness company Peloton to offer in-room exercise bikes at its hotels in Germany. Guests will be able to stream live cycling and fitness classes from the Peloton Studios in New York and London or watch them on-demand.
The collaboration debuted at Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin over the summer and is now also available at Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski Munich, Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski Dresden and the Kempinski Hotels in Frankfurt Gravenbruch and in Berchtesgaden.
The Peloton Bikes are equipped with software specially developed for the commercial sector which guarantees complete data security of the multiple users. The bikes are also equipped with double-sided pedals, so guests can either use their own SPD-compatible cycling shoes (which click into the pedal) or ride with sports shoes in the toe cages.
Benedikt Jaschke, Chief Quality Officer and member of the Management Board of Kempinski Hotels, commented:
“Today more than ever, our guests want to maintain and improve their fitness even when travelling or staying in a hotel and take advantage of the opportunity to continue their regular “home” training in their hotel room.
“With Peloton we found the right partner to push our ‘Keep your Fitness Promise’ initiative around the well-being of our guests to a higher level.”
Martin Richter, Managing Director of Peloton Germany, added:
“We are happy to partner with Kempinski Hotels and to have the opportunity to bring our unique training experience to these exclusive luxury hotels. We already know from our international markets how much hotel guests appreciate the possibility to do first-class training in private surroundings, and we experience the Kempinski Hotel Group as a partner with great openness for innovation.”
Peloton’s bikes have already proved popular with numerous hotels across the US, Canada and the UK, with all participating properties listed on the Peloton Hotel Finder.
