Forget your workout gear while on vacation? No problem because Westin Hotels & Resorts and New Balance have created a global program that allows guests to borrow running shoes and gear. What began in only 10 Westin properties has grown to include all of Westin’s 190 properties internationally. The Westin/New Balance gear leading program allows guests to borrow running shoes with disposable insoles, as well as a variety of men’s and women’s New Balance apparel including shorts, shirts and socks for men and shorts, capri pants, shirts, sports bras and socks for women for just $5. Guests also have access to exclusive in-room fitness and equipment-free content from New Balance Fitness Ambassador and celebrity trainer Holly Perkins. As part of the partnership, participating properties provide guests traveling for a major athletic event, such as a marathon, with wellness amenities, including turn-down gifts with “performance/fuel” goodies for the race and “good luck” wake-up calls.
