Stay Fit at Steele Hill Resorts

With 2018 behind us, we are welcoming the new year with our health and fitness goals in clear sight. Here at Steele Hill we have all the staples you need to carry on with your healthy lifestyle, even while on vacation. The resort offers various activities and amenities that cater to an active lifestyle including our extensive hiking and snowshoe trail network, as well as an indoor racquetball court and fitness center. If your New Year’s Resolution is to get fit and healthy, let us help you stay on track!

Begin preparing your body for a workout by soaking in our over-sized Roman Spa hot tub. This passive type of warm-up is very beneficial for your body not only working on improving oxygen uptake but increasing the blood flow to your muscles and warming up the core body temperature. While soaking for about fifteen minutes, begin mentally prepping for your workout, envisioning your fitness routine and goals. Our Roman Spa hot tub reaches 104 degrees and is the perfect relaxing start to engage both your body and mind.

Once you have dried off and changed in our sizable locker rooms, stop into our onsite convenience store, The Market, for your workout staples. If you forgot your earbuds at home, pick up a pair here and grab a Gatorade to charge to the room, then you will be ready to hit the gym. Our exclusive health club is only available to our guests and owners making it less crowded and easier to obtain the workout you were expecting. Begin your session doing some low impact cardiovascular workouts by hopping on one of the recumbent bikes, elliptical machines or treadmills and start immediately burning calories. Each cardio machine has a mounted flat-screen television in front of it so you can get lost in a basketball game or the latest episode of House Hunters. Next move over to the resistance bands, CYBEX multi-gym, yoga balls or utilize one of the flat benches with our free weights for more of a total body workout.

Once your workout is complete, head back to the locker room to change and step into our spacious electrically heated sauna. Not every workout can end with a multi-beneficial trip to a sauna so take advantage of it while you have the chance! Relaxing in a hot sauna results in an expansion of blood vessels leading to lowered blood pressure and better circulation. Spend up to twenty minutes relaxing in the sauna and take this time to unwind and plan out the rest of your day.

If you would like to plan an active vacation, choose Steele Hill Resorts. Keep an eye on our activity schedule as it is ever changing each week including great workouts like water aerobics, yoga, and training sessions with personal trainers.

Steele Hill Active Getaway

Whether you’re a 12-year-old kid or a marathon runner, some people just love to be active. When on vacation you can do whatever you want, so if being active puts you in your happy place, Steele Hill Resorts has something for you and we have the perfect day planned out to experience it all.

It looks like it’s going to be a beautiful day out. You won’t want to fuss around too much in the morning but you will need to fuel up for the day. So, take a walk up to The Market and grab a fresh cup of Starbucks coffee and a breakfast sandwich to go.

Surrounding the edge of the resort is a five-mile hiking loop with easy to moderate terrain. Before it gets too hot, start your day outdoors in the heart of nature with a brisk walk or run around the loop. This is a great way to soak in that fresh New Hampshire air and clear your mind for the day.

Grab your suit and head down to the outdoor pool area to cool down with a refreshing swim and some laps in the pool. Pull up a lounge chair, hang out, and relax in the sun for a bit. Grab a drink and a healthy lunch option like the Turkey Avocado Wrap off of the Hilltop Restaurant menu using the poolside cabana service.

Head on over to the basketball or tennis courts for some competitive afternoon fun. Other guests are always enjoying the basketball court so join in on a pickup game, or practice those free throws. If tennis is your thing, serve up your ace while taking in views of the rolling mountain ranges to the south.

Spend the rest of the afternoon hitting the links with a leisurely 9 holes on our par 3 course. If you are a beginner or have been golfing for years, this course will work for everyone. If you forgot to bring your own clubs don’t worry about it, you can head to the check-in office where we rent them out. Did we mention that most of the course offers clear access to views of the lakes and mountains?

Head back to your room and cook up a delicious meal in the comfort of your own kitchen or take advantage of the many grills we offer for guest use around the resort campus. Make sure to fuel your body right so that you have enough energy to get through the night.

Post dinner get a group together for a game of volleyball and watch as the sun goes down; the surrounding landscape shifts through the beautiful sunset shades of dark greens and purples. After your volleyball game, throw on your bathing suit and head out to our new 20ft four-season hot tub to enjoy a soak after a long day of activities. Feel free to retire to your suite’s deck and take in the stars for a bit or head in for an early bedtime. After all, you’ve had a busy day on your active getaway at Steele Hill.
