Hotel chain Westin Hotels & Resorts is refurbishing the fitness facilities at its 186 global hotels to provide guests with a more holistic fitness experience.

Westin’s new fitness studios will be design-based, featuring soft colours and natural materials, as well as murals, new equipment and technology such as ‘blue-light boost’. This uses customised lighting to help energise gym buffs in different workout areas.

The market for design-based gyms is growing, and dingy, cluttered spaces may soon be a thing of the past. The emergence of talents like American leisure entrepreneur David Barton – who believes exercise is more effective when gyms have sensory appeal – is driving this focus on good gym design. For more on his high-design workout facilities, read our Gym Revolution report.
