NEW YORK (April 27, 2016) – Fairmont Hotels & Resorts expands its industry-leading wellness program, Fairmont Fit, through a new collaboration with Technogym, the leading producer of design and technology-driven fitness equipment and solutions, to offer its signature Wellness Ball™ Active Sitting as the newest Fairmont Fit amenity.
Fairmont Fit empowers travelers to stay healthy and active on the go with personalized Reebok workout apparel and footwear delivered directly to the room for Fairmont President’s Club members. The first apparel loaner service in the luxury hospitality industry, the innovative program remains a leader in the field. For the first time since the inception of this successful offering, Fairmont Fit is being expanded with the addition of a new brand, Technogym.
A top global manufacturer of home and commercial fitness equipment, Technogym delivers an enhanced wellness experience, allowing Fairmont guests to enjoy a low-impact, yet highly-effective workout from the comfort of their room. Technogym’s Wellness Ball Active Sitting and exercise regimen are now available for request at pilot hotels Fairmont Pacific Rim, Fairmont Pittsburgh, Fairmont Copley Plaza and Fairmont San Francisco, and will roll out at select Fairmont Hotels & Resorts across North America in early 2018. Travelers looking to continue their wellness journey after their stay will have the option of purchasing the active sitting ball in Fairmont Store locations and onFairmontStore.com.
“As a part of our continued commitment to inspiring health and wellness for our guests, we are excited to partner with global experts Technogym to bring another element of fitness to life in our hotels,” said Daniel Poulin, Director, Spa & Fitness, North & Central America, AccorHotels. “Technogym is a worldwide leader in exercise equipment and science, and we share a similarly innovative approach to wellbeing.”
In addition to the in-room offering, Fairmont is previewing a new wellness package for corporate meetings and groups. The option to replace conventional chairs with Technogym’s Wellness Balls will help to make meetings more productive and keep participants focused and engaged.
Fairmont has also taken aim at enhancing employee wellness. By incorporating products like Technogym’s active sitting balls into its corporate offices and meeting spaces, Fairmont is encouraging a culture of wellness among its employees, which has been proven to increase positive morale and raise employee retention rates.
