Affinia's Health Initiative

The Affinia Dumont has launched a three-month fitness program designed to put the hotel's associates into fighting trim. More than 25 associates are participating in the program at the Executive Fitness Suite Hotel in midtown Manhattan.

Fitness Concierge Raphael St. James is helping associates keep track of their daily diet and exercise habits by using custom-designed intake/fitness assessment forms. Progress in body fat percentage, weight, resting heart rate, blood pressure and flexibility will be monitored through the period, which ends March 31.

The three associates who post the highest overall health improvement will receive prizes spanning a video iPod and a treatment at the Affinia Dumont's Oasis Day Spa.

Because the Affinia Dumont calls itself “the preferred hotel for fitness-minded executives,” it makes sense to promote fitness among its associates, says David McManus, general manager. McManus has joined in the initiative along with most of the hotel's management team.
