You no longer have to worry about skipping workouts while you’re on the road. That’s because numerous hotels and resorts have gone beyond the decked-out 24-hour gyms. Many properties are now offering special fitness packages that include everything from spin classes to yoga mat-outfitted rooms to make sure you get some reps in between all that R&R. Here are 10 of our favorite options for staying fit while you travel (regardless of whether it's for business or pleasure).

1  WESTIN ST. FRANCIS

If you're worried that your hotel gym won't be on par with your home gym, then book a stay at the Westin St. Francis. Not only do they have a newly renovated 6,000-square-foot fitness facility but they just partnered with Peloton Bikes, so you can still go to your weekly cycling workout. They've also partnered with New Balance to provide guests with a gear rental program. And their SuperFoods menu (including fresh-squeezed juices) will keep you happily full without packing on the pounds.

2 SHANGRI-LA HOTEL, TORONTO

When you’re staying at a five-star hotel, you may not want to leave the room to get your sweat on. But book a room at the Shangri-La in Toronto and you won’t have to. That’s because each comes with a 25-minute yoga sequence with lululemon ambassador Amber Joliat that can be viewed on an in-room TV or streamed on an iPad. If you do want to venture out of your room, you can also enjoy their 9,000-square-foot fitness facility where you can take a variety of group fitness classes like yoga, barre, bootcamp and boxing.

You've heard of the Spartan Race, now train like a Spartan at 1 Hotel South Beach in Miami, FL. With an impressive 14,00-square-foot facility, there are individual areas dedicated to "athleticism, endurance and strength." Or if SoulCyle is more your cup of tea, take a 45-minute class on one of the 54 bikes in this studio 2,600-square-foot indoor cycling space connected to the hotel. After you give your muscles a good work out, hit up the Bamford Haybarn Spa for a deep-tissue massage to help speed up muscle recovery and reduce muscle soreness.

10  EQUINOX HOTEL, NEW YORK CITY

With the first location not set to open until 2019, this newcomer to the travel scene has plenty of time to prep for its wow factor.
