Westin Hotels Want You To Work Out On This Crazy Bike

The notion of a hotel providing bikes to guests is not a new one. Nor is the notion of a hotel having a fitness center with elliptical machines. But the combination of elliptical and bike? It's one we've not yet seen.

Westin Hotels & Resorts recently announced a partnership with with ElliptiGO, creator of the world's first outdoor elliptical cycle. It's yet another way the hotel is getting into fitness. Recently, they unveiled new gyms and a partnership with New Balance that allows guests to borrow workout equipment.

Now, guests can rent the $2,500 ElliptiGO 8C for an average rental fee of $10. Properties participating in the pilot program that will run throughout the summer include The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa, The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa, The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa, The Westin Georgetown, Washington D.C., and The Westin Mission Hills Resort & Spa.

"Our pilot program with ElliptiGO reinforces the brand's commitment to promoting an active lifestyle and making exercise convenient for our guests in innovative and exciting ways," said Brian Povinelli, Global Brand Leader, Westin Hotels & Resorts.

A fun way to get a workout in? Certainly. Something we'll be renting? Probably not – we have enough trouble riding a bike, and Segways terrify us. This looks like a hybrid of the two and we're pretty sure we'll hurt ourselves, the expensive bike or others while riding. That said – it seems like a fun perk. Would you try the ElliptiGO?
