The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa, known as
an ideal property for fitness enthusiasts, has now added a .8-mile,
state-of-the-art jogging trail to its list of amenities for hotel
guests. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star, urban retreat is located
minutes from downtown Houston, the Galleria and Memorial Park. Its
175,000 square-foot, private Houstonian Club is available with no resort
fee for hotel guests and offers fitness-forward equipment, over 180
weekly fitness classes, aquatic programs, an indoor tennis facility, and
three resort pools.
The jogging path was resurfaced as a high-tech
Rubberway training track comprised of recycled rubber tires on top of a
concrete slab base layer. The base layer gives it more resilience,
protecting walkers’ and joggers’ joints and ligaments from the long-term
impacts of exercise while also preserving trees and preventing trip
The track runs throughout the Houstonian’s
campus and also feeds into to Memorial Park’s longer trails. Featuring
water stations, fitness zones and plenty of nature along the way, this
one-mile trail is an ideal tool for those wanting to move their exercise
Rubberway’s tracks provide an ergonomic, safe,
effective, and environmentally friendly walking and jogging service.
These quick-drying tracks also provide storm water management and allow
for rapid filtration and drainage of water. Even with the concrete base
layer, the Houstonian’s new track still drains horizontally and
World Recycling Surfacing Group president, CEO
and founder Karoleen Alexander, who also invented rubber sidewalks in
1989, first developed the Rubberway track system in 2000. "The
Houstonian selected this model because it’s a porous, environmental, and
sustainable option that many people are interested in, because it
provides storm management in an ADA-approved ergonomic fitness option,”
As the trail winds through the property, hotel
guests can enjoy a quiet canopy of trees on one end, and a great view
of the club's tennis courts, pools and Trellis Spa on the other. The
2.9-mile, crushed granite Memorial Park trail can be accessed via two
routes from The Houstonian entrance.
The Houstonian Outdoor offerings are many, and a Houstonian Walking & Jogging Map can be obtained at the hotel Concierge Desk.
