New York Marriott Downtown in Lower Manhattan Opens Brand New Fitness Center

New York Hotel's 2,000 Square Foot Fitness Center Features Matrix 7xi Console, the Industry's First App-Based Interface, Across Its Line of Cardiovascular Products

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/27/14 -- Guests can now experience a real 21st century workout, in over two dozen different ways, with the opening of the New York Marriott Downtown's new 2,000 square foot Fitness Center on the 500-room hotel's fifth floor. Open 24/7 to hotel guests only, the new Fitness Center features an array of Matrix Fitness equipment and its cutting-edge console technology, which delivers more entertainment and connectivity than guests could imagine.

Today's fitness enthusiasts who travel frequently will recognize and appreciate these new ways to work out while on the road, including Virtual Active™, MyRide and ClimbMill, which are present in many high-end fitness centers around the country. While the equipment is high-tech, it's also very intuitive. Matrix prioritizes ease of use so guests can hop on and get moving with little or no explanation. The 7xi's app interface creates a refined, exercise-friendly experience, while offering users easy access to social media and web content in a controlled environment.

Virtual Active™ by Matrix is available on all the main cardio pieces, including treadmills, ellipticals, climbmills and bikes. It allows guests to experience a revolutionary workout through dynamic video content on the console in front of them. Not only will guests see their destination, which could be in the lush forests of Hawaii or the majestic Grand Canyon, they'll feel gradual terrain changes under their feet and hear the ambient sounds through their headphones, for a near total immersion.

In addition to the array of cardiovascular equipment, The Fitness Center features a Smith machine for concentrated weight/barbell workouts, as well as nine Matrix Ultra Selectorized weight stations.

The new Fitness Center at one of the premier hotels in New York City was created in a new space that is almost double the size of the previous one, and usage is complimentary for all hotel guests. Frequent travelers who follow regular fitness workouts at home often choose a hotel equipped with a full range of workout options, to continue their normal programs. The completely renovated space on the fifth floor sits adjacent to 16 brand new hotel guest rooms, for guests who really want close access to their daily workouts.

To complement the opening of the new Fitness Center and take the workout experience outdoors, the lower Manhattan hotel's general manager is urging guests to "Get up and go, with GM Joe," for 7:00am three-mile runs on selected dates throughout Lower Manhattan and the Battery Park Esplanade.
