Fairmont Hotels & Resorts
If you’re not a member of the Fairmont President’s Club, which is free, you’re seriously missing out. If you forgot your workout gear — or just didn’t have room for it in the first place — Fairmont Fit has you covered. The program allows you to have Reebok footwear, apparel and accessories delivered directly to your room. Simply add in sizing to your President’s Club profile and the rest is history. You can also change it up daily so you have fresh apparel, and if you want to keep anything, you get 15 percent off the purchase price. Once you have your ensemble all figured out, there is a plethora of amazing complimentary classes to take at every Fairmont property.
Biking is one of the easiest ways to get some exercise while exploring a new city and you can do just that when staying at one of Kimpton’s amazing boutique properties around the country. The chain has created a partnership with PUBLIC bikes to help you cruise around town in style. You’ll also have your very own in-room yoga mat, flavored water and complimentary on-demand yoga and Pilates channels so you can get your om on in private.
Working out while on the go just got a lot easier thanks to the in-room fitness zones at EVEN Hotels. Think cork flooring, personal exercise equipment and an app that will guide you through an entire workout routine. The staff is also trained to know where the best running routes and walking trails are, so there’s really no excuse to not break a sweat when you’re staying in one of these fabulous hotels.
Hilton Garden Inn
There’s no need to lug around your yoga mat and resistance bands when staying at one of Hilton Garden Inn’s properties. Aside from cardio and weight training in the fitness center, the hotels also have complimentary Stay Fit Kits available for checkout at the front desk. Each kit includes a Pilates band, a yoga mat with a strap and blocks, a medicine ball, hand weights, a resistance rope and detailed exercise cards. And if that’s still not enough motivation, you can purchase a fitness program to go along with the kit. With over 570 properties worldwide, you’ll never risk skipping a workout while traveling again.
Aside from offering over-the-top fitness centers, Trump Hotels have an entire Travel Fit program for guests that need to keep fit while traveling. Perks include having light equipment, such as yoga mats, weights and resistance bands delivered directly to your room, and working out in style with the latest gear from Under Armour. There are also pre-loaded iPods available to set the mood.
W Fort Lauderdale partnered with Vlaun Lifestyle Management (VLM) to create a Beach Boot Camp and Yoga program that offers a menu of different workouts from Tuesday to Saturday. From relaxing Sunrise Yoga to a more intense Beach Boot Camp, the 60-minute group workouts begin every morning and are also available for private sessions. The best part is that the classes are held oceanfront on the luxury resort’s exclusive stretch of the beach and the hotel’s menu has an incredible selection of healthy breakfast options (including a delicious green juice) to indulge in as you lounge in the outdoor terrace with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. With that kind of location, the real question is: Who wouldn’t want to get their fitness on while staying here?

It’s like a luxurious, all-inclusive boot camp vacation that will whip you into serious shape, all while having fun and enjoying the gorgeous surroundings. Choose from a one-week reboot or two-week renewal program that will help you lose weight, detox, de-stress, recharge and much more — healthy meals included.
