Podfitness, one of the first customized audio personal training services, has now partnered with W Hotels to provide enhanced guest experience via the hotels' popular Welcome Delight program, W Wired package and W The Card program.

Using patent pending technology to custom build audio workouts for its users based on their goals and music choices, Podfitness, launched in March of 2006, joins a prestigious list of select W Hotel partners including Apple iTunes and Real Starz Movie Downloads with Intel.

The Welcome Delight program took place from July 1, 2006 through July 31st, 2006 and offered the hotel guest a "surprise element” to their W Hotel stay.  Upon checkin across all U.S. properties, W Hotel guests received a customized Podfitness.com 30-day offer inserted with their key card.

The W Wired program reaches the tech savvy W guest, and now with Podfitness.com as a partner, the Wired W hotel guest will have access to technology-oriented customized fitness programs. The partnership will run from July 9th, 2006 through December 31, 2006 and will offer a two-month subscription to Podfitness.com for each wired member.  This giveaway will take place in select W Hotel US locations and International locations including Montreal, Canada, Seoul, Korea and Mexico City, Mexico.        

Each workout by Podfitness is based on the methods and philosophy of some of the world's elite personal trainers and coaches, customized every day to help move each user to his or her fitness goals.
