The renowned Hilton hotels group has launched an in-room wellness concept: Five Feet to Fitness. The innovative room category will enable guests to use 11 different types of fitness equipment and accessories, along with hundreds of digital workouts, in the privacy of their own room.
This new development offers greater flexibility in the type of fitness activities guests can entertain while spending time at the Hilton hotels group. Hilton hotels note in their press release: “The rooms are part of Hilton’s innovation efforts to modernise the hospitality fitness experience and make it more inclusive for all by redeveloping fitness centres and offering fresh fitness concepts tailored to the hotel’s location and regular guests.”
A guest room that combines a sleep- and fully-integrated fitness experience delivers an impressive new dimension of convenience and personalisation – an industry first.
As Ryan Crabbe, senior director of global wellness at Hilton, comments: “A guest room that combines a sleep- and fully-integrated fitness experience delivers an impressive new dimension of convenience and personalisation – an industry first. Five Feet to Fitness has been thoughtfully engineered to serve as a guest’s personal wellness stage, complete with sports performance materials and best-in-class gym accessories. Guests will quickly realise we have gone much further than simply placing a piece of equipment in a room.”
As he continues, “We know that no matter how determined people are to make healthy decisions at home, the ability to replicate those choices are often not as accessible as they should be while travelling. We’re creating choice and control for guests to drive their own fitness experience.”

Guests who choose the Five Feet to Fitness room category will be able to access equipment tutorials and more than 200 in-room fitness workout videos via a touch-screen display. These including opportunities to practice yoga, cardio and interval training.
Alongside these, their room will also feature the Gym Rax functional training station, in which they can take part in suspension, HIIT and strength training. There will additionally be a Wattbike for indoor cycling, which can be supported by video tutorials, and a chair specifically designed for practising mindfulness.
Adding to the wellness experience, rooms will have blackout blinds fitted for a good night’s sleep, Biofreeze to aid with muscle tension, and a range of protein and re-hydration drinks to choose from.
The concept is being launched across a number of US locations of Hilton hotels, including Parc 55 Francisco and Hilton McLean Tysons Corner in Virginia.
