Recent trends show the hotel industry is listening to their customers and focusing more on fitness with everything from workout kits delivered to your door to luggage racks that can be used as a workout bench.
Sure, many of us may never leave our beach chair or make it down to the workout room when we travel, but isn’t it nice to know the option is there? And maybe squeezing in that workout wouldn’t be so tough if the experience was more pleasant than the dingy, dark hotel gyms many of us are used to.
Sheraton Fitness has partnered with Core Performance to provide a well-rounded fitness and health offering in its hotels. On-demand workout videos and healthy meal options make staying on track easier for travellers. They’ve also invested in new, state-of-the art fitness centers complete with programming from Core Performance.

Summer time is here and I couldn’t be more excited. These are just a few of the summer hits you’ll find on my iPod, whether I’m running outside or hitting the gym. What would you add to the list?
1. Alice Cooper – School’s Out (Even if I’m not in school anymore, this song brings me right back to the days when we got summer breaks.)
2. Martha and the Vandellas - Dancing in the Street
3. Beach Boys – Surfin’ USA (Any Beach Boys song makes for an awesome summer workout playlist but I love listening to Surfin’ USA and pretending I’m on a surfboard.)

We have become a nation of oversized meals and middles. Recent studies indicate Americans eat more calories today than they did 30 years ago. And just an extra 100 to 200 calories per day can add up to an extra 10-pound weight gain each year. If you are accustomed to mega-sized platefuls of pasta and Flintstone style steaks, you may have portion distortion—no longer recognizing what a healthy portion looks like.
