I’m packing up my spandex and taking this show on the road.
Turkey Day is a holiday I spend at home with my folks in Ohio. And in the midwest, Thanksgiving is not a holiday to be messed with. There will be casseroles galore and carbs up to my eyeballs. Unfortunately, I don’t know any local fitness bloggers who can help roll me to the nearest spin studio for a detox. Aside from Yelp (cringe)…what’s a fitness junkie to do?
Luckily, I’m related to the original fit crasher: my mother.
I kid you not, folks, she has already lined up a grueling list of classes for us to try. After much back and forth, we have both put our heads together to whittle the contenders down to a lean, mean few.
Factors considered include:
- how much we will sweat
- probability that we won’t be able to walk the next day
Without further ado, I present to you my plate of options for sweating in Cincinnati this Thanksgiving:
Despite our best intentions, squeezing fitness into travel plans can be rough.
Sometimes the hotel doesn’t have a gym.
Sometimes those workout clothes just don’t seem to fit into your carry on.
Sometimes you are in meetings from touchdown to takeoff.
And sometimes…well…happy hour with colleagues sounds better than sweating it out in an unfamiliar city.
Excuses ain’t gonna cut it for The Dupont Circle Hotel, which is offering guests a package deal to get them moving and shaking during their stay in the capital.
A hotel offering a little nudge toward the workout room? Now that’s a deal I can get behind.
From their website, when you book a room with the “Let’s Get Physical” package, you’ll receive:
- Complimentary access to on-site workout room
- A complimentary “Let’s Get Fit” breakfast in Café Dupont – which features yogurt, whole fruit, granola, juice and coffee
- Complimentary pass to Capital Bike Share. Skip the metro and use Capital Bike Share, which allows you not only to burn calories, but to remain above ground, the better to see the sights and attractions of Washington, DC.
- A $50 Gift Card of your choice at either Lululemon or City Sports (yes please!)
What do you think – is this something you would use? Have you heard of any other DC hotels offering fitness perks?
