Kempinski Hotels has launched a new room category designed for fitness in partnership with Technogym.
Select hotels in Berlin, Munich, Dubai and Shanghai will be the first to offer the Kempinski Fit Room, with the group likely to roll it out to more destinations “as soon as guests are hopefully allowed to travel again in the coming months”.
The rooms are complete with “innovative in-room workout solutions and on-demand fitness services” and guests can book the rooms through the hotels’ website.
Each Kempinski Fit Room is equipped with a Technogym Bike, a console which features an on-demand library of “round the clock” cycling classes run by trainers from around the world. Users can choose their favourites classes based on their preferred trainer, type of workout, language and music. The bike also offers total body workout experiences, with integrated handlebars and training videos.
The rooms also include a Technogym Case, a “high-end design bag” which includes a foam roller and massage ball “to help restore proper cirulcation to muscles”, a 100 per cent sustainable exercise mat, loop bands for lower-body exercises, and power bands in three levels of resistance for upper body exercises. Guests will also receive a QR code to follow a guided workout with a virtual trainer on their phone.
Marc Feller, Senior Director of Customer Experience, commented:
“The trend towards wellness and health, which has been growing steadily in recent years, will certainly intensify in the future. With the new room category, we are meeting the need of our guests to stay fit on the go and to implement a perfect workout without having to leave the hotel.
“The Kempinski Fit Room is an important part of our corporate strategy around wellness and sustainability, and complements the just recently completed acquisition of all shares in spa provider Resense.”
The rooms are currently available at Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski Munich, Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin, Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates Dubai and Grand Hotel Kempinski Shanghai in China.
Kempinski also partnered with fitness company Peloton to offer in-room exercise bikes at its hotels in Germany last year.
