Well and Good
Joining the list of luxury hotels offering health and wellness packages, the Trump Hotel Collection (855.878.6700, www.trumphotelcollection.com) unveiled its new Trump Wellness concept this summer. The program, which was developed in partnership with Technogym and Under Armour, comprises three new offerings that promote fitness and healthy eating.
Two plans, Nourish and Quick Bites, focus exclusively on nutrition. In the former, guests are provided a wealth of healthy in-room meal options that include organic, gluten-free, and vegan dining. Each of the chain’s locations—New York City, Chicago, Las Vegas, Honolulu, Miami, Toronto, and Panama City—has worked with homegrown food suppliers for the freshest ingredients, from local sorbets and hydroponic lettuce sourced by the Trump International Hotel Waikiki Beach Walk’s chef Shoji Namatame to organic produce grown exclusively for the Trump National Doral Miami. Nourish also ensures that many minibar snacks are replaced with healthy alternatives and offers kids’ menus with delicious and nutritious meals. The Quick Bites program promises express delivery in 15 minutes or less for on-the-go guests.
Focusing on fitness is Trump Wellness’ Travel Fit plan, which aims to help guests maintain their workout regimen while traveling. In-room exercise is encouraged with equipment-on-loan, such as yoga mats, stretch bands, dumbbells, and even Under Armour apparel and iPod shuffles preloaded with heart-pumping tunes. The hotels’ fitness rooms have also been upgraded with cutting-edge Technogym systems. For guests who prefer to work out in the great outdoors, maps outlining local running paths are available at each hotel.
Trump Wellness is just the latest in a series of healthy offerings developed by luxury hotels. In March, the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills (310.273.2222, www.fourseasons.com) debuted a digital in-room fitness program by the celebrity trainers at Blue Clay Fitness. After filling out a survey, guests receive a customized fitness program designed by Blue Clay cofounder Rick Hagaman. Video routines have been developed exclusively for in-room exercise using the Four Seasons’ fitness kit, which includes resistance bands and a yoga mat. Meanwhile, at San Diego’s US Grant (619.232.3121, www.usgrant.net), the local fitness group On Demand Lifestyles has developed the Work It Lifestyle package, which pairs guests with high-profile trainers such as the professional boxer Chad Yarvitz and the Olympic rower Luke Walton for personalized fitness routines ranging from Pilates and yoga to CrossFit and strength training.
