LOEWS SANTA MONICA BEACH HOTEL INTRODUCES “FIT FOR FUN” FAMILY WELLNESS PROGRAM
Move over Arnold… Muscle Beach’s newest body builders are four-feet tall and weigh in at an intimidating 46 pounds. It’s all part of “Fit for Fun,” Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel’s new wellness program designed to keep families healthy and happy while traveling together.
Located just south of the Santa Monica Pier and directly in front of Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel is the original location of Muscle Beach. The hotel’s new Fit for Fun program takes full advantage this attribute, allowing families to get outdoors and explore the beach’s 26-mile paved strand and world-famous outdoor workout equipment.
