7 Fit Hotels to Check Out
3. Hotel Ritz Four Seasons, Portugal. If your travels are taking you out of the great U.S. of A., fear not: you can still have access to all the comforts of home—including your go-to equipment. Four Seasons Hotel Ritz in Lisbon, Portugal occupies one of Lisbon’s seven hills, with sweeping views of Eduardo VII Park, St.George’s Moorish castle, the old town and the Tagus River. With the perfect backdrop, the Four Seasons Hotel Ritz is the perfect location for a little “me-time” complete with a spa, an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor track, a fitness center, a sauna, a steam room, and massage and beauty treatments.
The fitness center offers breathtaking panoramic views of the city and is filled to the brim with quality fitness equipment. If you want more of a personal-fitness experience, purchase one of their fitness packages. The program includes seven nights of luxury accommodations in a double room, a delicious and healthy buffet-style breakfast, and a 5-day fitness program, which includes two different fitness classes daily, like traditional circuit-training and spinning, and newer fitness classes like Gyrokinesis and Hydrogimnastics. There are senior programs available as well for all the Fit Bottomed G-mas out there, with lower-intensity workouts so that every fitness level can stay active.
To accommodate all schedules and travel plans, your fitness program can be done in the morning or in the evening, leaving the rest of your time free to sight-see, explore the city’s historic areas and the famous shopping areas. At the Ritz, it’s the little things that count as well. You’ll receive a welcome drink when you enter the health club, mineral water during all your sessions, and a one-time free lunch at the health club’s restaurant.
