Leave Your Dumb… Bells at Home
Vacation is not an excuse to take a day off from your P90X workout, but you might find your hotel room doesn’t have enough room or a DVD player. Well check out Even Hotels, the new chain from the InterContinental Hotel Group, where the guest rooms are designed with enough floor space for visitors to work out in them and include coat racks that double as pull-up bars, exercise benches that are also luggage benches, yoga mats tucked in the dresser drawers and foam rollers.
Many hotels have more than a treadmill in their gyms and you’ll find free weights, medicine balls, yoga mats and saunas in certain Weston, Kimpton and Sheraton hotels trying to lure the fitness conscience traveler. Can’t wait until you arrive at the hotel, then plan your itinerary though the DFW, SFO or Indianapolis airports where you can borrow running shoes, iPods and join a Yoga session between flights.
You might not need trip delay insurance as long as you can squeeze in a good sweat between your next flight. Read more about what hotels and airports fitness amenities online at http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/05/travel/easing-the-pain-of-workouts-on-the-road.html?emc=tnt&tntemail0=y
