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).
