Swim and cycle like Canada’s top athletes with complimentary programs
The Fairmont Vancouver Airport is focused on keeping guests fit for flight throughout 2010. Guests of the hotel, recently ranked #2 in Canada by Condé Nast Traveler Magazine, will enjoy complimentary access to its state-of-the-art fitness facilities and bike paths – perfect for a last minute workout before departure.
The recently upgraded Health Club makes it easy for guests to stay in tip-top shape. With a mechanized three-lane lap pool featuring a self-adjusting current, even the most technical swimmers will be challenged. No time to lap up the luxury overnight? Zone out before you zoom out and relax on the Quiet Zone floor after a quick workout. Guests can check in between 8am and 8pm on the lucky 8th floor where the hotel has created a quiet respite with complimentary eye masks, ear plugs and minimal disruptions from housekeeping.*
If guests would rather take land over sea, complimentary BMW Cruise Bikes will do the trick. A great way for getting around Vancouver during and after the Olympics, the ultra-modern bikes grant adventure seekers the opportunity to explore the myriad biking trails nearby including: Flight Path Park; McDonald Beach Park (Fairmont Vancouver Airport’s own adopted park); and Iona Beach Regional Park.
Starting in April 2010, visit the Richmond Oval to reenact your favourite Canadian moment at the Olympic skating arena turned health and wellness centre. Likened to the Netherlands, Richmond’s flat terrain provides the perfect conditions for a leisurely bike ride.
Both adult and child-size BMW Cruise Bikes are available, along with handy accessories including locks, helmets and backpacks.
For the ultimate healthy breakfast, guests can start their day with a Long Track smoothie from Globe@YVR. An all-natural frozen blended fruit drink, infused with B6, B12, green tea, marionberry and locally sourced organic bee pollen, the booster provides dynamic healing powers for endurance and optimum athletic performance.
