      Hotels Don't Need a Gym to Offer Health / Wellbeing to Guests

      In our changed world, there has never been a greater emphasis on looking after our health. If we want travellers to stay with us, hospitality as a industry needs to show that it has a solution. But in-house gyms are expensive, maintenance is ongoing and trying to provide classes is a nightmare. Yet, you are expected to provide a solution to one of the most hotly demanded requirements of guests.
