Now You Can Find Element's iPhone Charging Bikes Everywhere
Technology has become a fundamental part of fitness these days. Often, at the gym, folks on treadmills or ellipticals seem more preoccupied with watching an episode of Real Housewives than their actual workout. And for many, a 20-minute exercise routine consists of hopping around the living room with a Nintendo Wii controller.
So we guess it's only fitting that Element has stuck to its promise of bringing iPhone-charging stationary bikes into all of its hotels. The nifty equipment was first unveiled in March at the launch of Element Miami. And now, nine months later, the "charge-as-you-go" bikes have been installed in the fitness centers of all 10 Element hotels.
Fitness centers, which, we should point out, remain open 24/7, leaving you no excuse for ever having an un-charged phone—or, for that matter, missing a workout.
A few of Element's other enticements include healthy (and free) breakfast options in the morning, free WiFi in all public spaces and guest rooms, ergonomic desk chairs, en-suite kitchens, and rentable bikes.
Most recently, a few international Element hotels were announced, including Element Frankfurt, as well as a pair of Canadian Elements, in Toronto and Vancouver.
