Would You Power Walk, Pedal or Pilates Your Way Through San Diego?
If you are the type who hates the monotony of the same old workout and needs a little variety in your exercise routine, the Hotel Solamar in San Diego has options for you. The Gaslamp Quarter hotel just launched a wellness program called Mind Your P's: Pilates, Power Walks and Pedal Pushers. It's a new initiative for the hotel to encourage guests to get active and live like a local.
You can do your downward dog at poolside Pilates classes. You'll get to breathe in that fresh SoCal air on its fourth-floor rooftop deck while a local instructor helps you work on your core during the mat sessions. Classes cost $10 a person and are held Saturdays from 10 to 11 a.m.
If you prefer to take a stroll rather than get all pretzel-like, the general manager and sales staff lead power walks through downtown Wednesdays from 4 to 5 p.m. You'll get to see some of the sites while getting in some exercise.
The hotel also offers bikes. It partnered with a bike shop across the street to offer bicycle rentals for $25 a day. The hotel can call the shop or send you over to get a two-wheeler of your choice, like a hybrid, road or mountain bike. Then you can explore the city till your legs get tired.
