Plenty of hotels offer fully equipped fitness centers for those that like to keep to shape while on vacations or business trips. However, Westin Hotels & Resorts is taking it a stair-step further with their free Gear-Lending Program, which just launched yesterday.
Ladies can borrow capri pants, a sports bra, shirt, socks, and sneakers, while men get a shirt, shorts, socks, and shoes. Would you be creeped out wearing clothes (especially socks!) that thousands of other strangers have heavily sweated in? Of course the hotel claims they are hot water washing all of the clothing items in between uses and say most people are completely comfortable with the concept.
"Running socks aren't very intimate compared with bed sheets and towels," says Jenn Blazejewski, a 31-year-old management consultant, who is a daily runner and four-day-a-week traveler.
