triathlete Josiah Middaugh at Westin Riverfront Beaver Creek poolWhen I venture to my home state of Colorado, I know I have an active and adventurous vacation ahead of me. I’m not worried about finding time for my usual fitness routine because most of my days are spent riding the snowy slopes from open to close. Added bonus, it’s guaranteed to torch major calories and strengthen muscles from head to toe. For spa-goers with less adventurous plans who are still looking to stay fit on vacation, The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa at Beaver Creek Mountain (Avon, CO) has a new professional solution thanks to a fitness program led by triathlete Josiah Middaugh. “The Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa is a great fit for me because the facility has been a key to my success in recent years,” says Middaugh. “The Westin brand is also a natural fit with its focus on families and fitness, two passions of mine.” As Resident Triathlete World Champion, Middaugh will hold a variety of special events, including lectures and workshops for Athletic Club members and resort guests. Spa-goers can reserve a spot in one of the Swim Stroke Clinics ($200, 3 hours), register for private personal training sessions, or stop by the complimentary lectures in the recently renovated Movement Studio. Middaugh’s 15 years of experience training for races around the world and helping clients achieve their fitness goals are at their disposal. To stay fit while traveling, he says planning is crucial. “Scope out gyms, pools, and running routes ahead of time,” says Middaugh. “Plan your training like you would a business meeting, even if it means getting up early you will feel better the rest of the day.”
