SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Athletic-Minded Traveler LLC, a San Diego-based active lifestyle media company that operates the largest healthy travel site on the web,, released today its 2007 ranking of “The Best Hotel Gyms in the U.S.” The Top 10 hotel gyms received the company’s recommendation after ongoing research of over 3,500 hotels and anonymous personal tours by the editorial staff.

Selection criteria included facility size, equipment quantities, multi-sport options (e.g., lap pool, sport court, etc.), cost and overall ambiance/atmosphere. To be considered as a “hotel gym,” the facility must be located on hotel property or within an adjacent building.

Top 10 hotel gyms “These hotels deserve special recognition for supporting and encouraging travelers’ healthy and athletic-minded lifestyles,” said Jim Kaese, Co-founder and Managing Member of Athletic-Minded Traveler LLC. “Our online resource has experienced tremendous growth and success because millions of business and leisure travelers now care about exercise options while away from home (up to 50% in one study) and want to learn about fantastic accommodations and facilities like these.”
