Los Angeles, California – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
The Beverly Hills Hotel and Hotel Bel-Air have introduced The Lifestyle by Scott Crawford, a bespoke wellness offering for their guests, as part of a ground-breaking partnership with recognized fitness specialist Scott Crawford, founder of California’s SOMA Get Fit. As part of a broad collaboration with Crawford, the hotels will help guests to get fit, feel good and have fun by working one-on-one with a team of fitness coaches personally directed by Scott Crawford.
Whether their goals include a single workout session or a life-changing day-long wellness experience, guests of Dorchester Collection’s Beverly Hills Hotel, Hotel Bel-Air and their La Prairie Spa will be able to arrange individualized wellness sessions with Crawford or his coaches, ensuring that their personal health needs and objectives are addressed. Private sessions can be customized for all fitness levels, with local hikes, personal training, yoga, mat pilates, meditation and tai chi all offered under the new program. Each guest’s sessions can take place either indoors or outdoors, taking advantage of the Beverly Hills weather and the hotels’ lush bungalow gardens, upper cabanas, Will Rogers Memorial Park, Swan Lake and Crystal Garden.
The individual 60- or 90-minute activities may also be incorporated into larger half-day or full-day customized fitness packages, including not only breakfast, lunch and an organic snack, but also a physical movement session, transportation to select added activities, a treatment at either hotel’s award-winning La Prairie Spa and a special gift from The Beverly Hills Hotel and Hotel Bel-Air. For the full-day experience, added selections can include such choices as acupuncture, horseback riding, a cultural demonstration, acting class, further fitness classes and dinner at either hotel’s celebrated restaurants: Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air or the Polo Lounge.
“We are delighted to be collaborating with Scott Crawford and his remarkable team,” said Edward A. Mady, Regional Director, West Coast, USA and General Manager.” Scott’s holistic philosophies bring a whole new dimension to the world of wellness, and his interest in the well-being of our guests will surely enhance the experience at The Beverly Hills Hotel and Hotel Bel-Air.”
Crawford has been teaching and promoting fitness-as-a-lifestyle for well over a decade, drawing on an extensive education and broad range of experience in sports, fitness, psychology, nutrition, and bodywork. A former professional soccer player with advanced degrees in counseling, Crawford provides a unique personal training approach which integrates body, mind, and spirit, combining acute mental training with demanding but enjoyable physical exercise and memorable cultural outings.
