4 Resorts That Cater To Triathletes

Westin Riverfront Beaver Creek


Avon, Colo. 

Pamper score: 7

The Westin chain is known for its athlete-friendly amenities, but this is next level: The luxury mountain retreat at Beaver Creek (just outside Vail) boasts a resident world champion triathlete, Josiah Middaugh. Book one of the hotel’s triathlete training packages, and you get direct access to the 11-time XTERRA USA national champion during your stay. Middaugh will spend an hour analyzing your stroke mechanics in the resort’s saline pool, lead you through a CompuTrainer bike workout and focus on strength training during a gym session. The higher-end Champions of Luxury Package ($1,015/night), includes your three training sessions with Middaugh; mountain-chic accommodations in a roomy one-bedroom suite; unlimited access to fitness classes (choose from more than 70 classes each week), including a robust yoga program, and top-end equipment at the Athletic Club; a 100-minute Rocky Mountain Sports Massage at the resort’s Spa Anjali; a Fitbit tracker; and a $100 dining credit.

Insider tip: If you don’t want to spring for a one-on-one training package with off-road royalty, you can still take advantage of bike workouts in the resort’s dedicated CompuTrainer studio and Masters swim workouts in the outdoor pool. The trail running around Beaver Creek Mountain is also spectacular.
