Why Hotel Fitness Centers Are Stepping Up Their Gym Game

Sure, some hotels just put the gym into an empty guest room. Or it's a couple of machines in another room that was never meant to be a gym. But some travelers—including event attendees—have demanded more. In this episode, I'm chatting with Steve Conklin, of the Marriott Marquis Chicago, about how hotels in the Marriott Convention and Resort Network (CRN) are stepping up their gym game.

For example, the J.W. Marriott in Chicago, has kinetic treadmills and dumbbells up to 100 pounds. That will accommodate many gym rats, including NFL teams and football players in town to play the Chicago Bears.
