Like its sister property in the previous slide, the Sheraton, Westin New York at Times Square offers an elaborate exercise program developed for the entire global hotel chain. Dubbed WestinWORKOUT, it embraces technology, focusing on fitness and fun. At the hotel's health club, guests can utilize a Wii console, on which they can take part in games like Wii Sports and Wii Play. With everything from tennis to baseball on offer, the Westin Wii workouts allow guests to harness their inner pro-athlete as they work off those extra calories. Those who prefer to get fit in the comfort of their own accommodations can book a Westin Workout Room. Each is equipped with a treadmill or stationary bicycle; cardio, strength and core training equipment; a DVD player and workout DVDs; and complimentary bottled water.
