When you’re researching a hotel, a feature often overlooked is its fitness facilities. This week on SniqueAway, we found a particularly impressive selection of destinations with high-tech fitness centers readily available to all guests. Check out the Palomar DC and Hyatt Regency Bellevue for heart-pumping facilities open 24 hours a day.
Of course, if you can’t make it to D.C. or Seattle, we decided to put together a list of our favorite gadgets to spice up your at-home regimen. Check them out!
Clockwise from top left:
UP by Jawbone: At the front of the “fitness bracelet sensor” pack is Jawbone’s UP. This light-weight wristband not only tracks your steps and jogging distance, but it also monitors sleep habits to make sure you’re recharging those batteries effectively. And its compatibility with smart phones lets you keep track of everything in an easy-to-use app.
Valencell’s PerformTek: With so many fitness censors and movement trackers out there, it’s tough to choose. But what if you could combine it with the earbuds you already wear on your jogs? PerformTek is a truly innovate set of headphones that allows you to listen to your workout playlist while simultaneously monitoring heart rate, calories burned and a slew of other parameters. How’s that for multitasking?
Waterproof Gadgets by Speedo: Not everyone likes running, and if you’re more inclined to put your hours in at the pool then Speedo has a line of gadgets for you. Beyond the standard waterproof training watches to track your lap times, we recommend the Speedo Aquabeat—a waterproof MP3 player complete with pool-friendly headphones.
