Woodmark Hotel Gives Guests a Boost of Adrenaline with New Workout Space
Kirkland Hotel Welcomes Traci Bartee as Director of Adrenaline
Kirkland, Wash. – (February 21, 2013) – The Woodmark Hotel, Yacht Club & Spa, located on the shores of Lake Washington on Carillon Point just 15 minutes east of Seattle and the only Seattle-area lakefront lodging, is excited to announce that it has partnered with Traci Bartee, owner of Fly Fitness in Kirkland, Wash., to provide a unique workout experience to address each guests’ individual workout preferences and offer overnight guests complimentary access to a new studio space. In addition, the Woodmark is introducing its new Fitness-to-Go program that allows exercise enthusiasts the opportunity to work out in their own guestroom.
As the Woodmark Hotel’s new Director of Adrenaline, Bartee will manage all things health and fitness related at the property – from complimentary classes, team building activities and fitness programs designed for guests, to providing information on local running and hiking routes and additional local fitness options.
“We are so excited to have Traci as the Woodmark Hotel’s Director of Adrenaline,” said John Murphy, general manager of the Woodmark Hotel. “Her knowledge, passion and exuberance for fitness are unmatched and with this new space we are able to add another exceptional amenity to the great offerings we have for our guests.”
The new space is located next to the Woodmark Hotel in Carillon Point and features resistance bands, weights and cardio machines. Woodmark guests can also take advantage of Fly Fitness’ numerous personal training options and classes for a reduced fee. Woodmark guests who wish to exercise in the privacy and comfort of their own rooms can utilize the new complimentary Fitness-to-Go program and have resistance bands, spin bikes and kettle bells delivered upon request by the Woodmark Fitness Concierge. Fly Fitness trainers or yoga instructors are also available for personalized in-room training (30 minutes for $50 and 60 minutes for $90) for those needing extra guidance and encouragement.
“I’m honored and excited to be named Director of Adrenaline at the Woodmark Hotel,” said Bartee. “It’s often difficult for guests to stick to their fitness goals while traveling, so I’m eager to provide motivation, information and support to visitors of all fitness levels and to develop classes to inspire healthy lifestyles.”
Bartee is an Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) certified trainer whose entrance into the fitness industry was the natural progression of her athletic youth and healthy lifestyle. Along with her AFAA certification she is also a certified spinning instructor through Schwinn. Bartee opened Fly Fitness in 2011 as an expression of her passions – people, fitness, entertaining, creating and helping others to live their best lives. The Fly Team is committed to helping their clients become the best they can be by offering more than just exercise programs. Fly Fitness’ training and classes on the shores of Lake Washington allow visitors to exercise and socialize in a picturesque setting.
