T+L Reports: Exercise on the Road

Exercising while on the road just got a whole lot easier. At the Peninsula hotels in New York, Chicago, and Beverly Hills (800/262-9467; www.peninsula.com), Pilates instructors, yoga gurus, and certified trainers are available 24 hours a day for private in-room sessions. • The Strike a Pose program at the Kimpton hotel properties (800/546-7866; www.kimptongroup.com) provides every guest with a yoga basket, including a mat, block, and strap to use while watching instructional sessions that air continuously. Try invigorating poses at dawn, stress relief moves as the day grinds on, and relaxing stretches at nightfall. • Suite 2806 at the Carlyle (35 E. 76th St., New York, N.Y.; 800/227-5737; www.thecarlyle.com; $3,000 a night) has its own gym equipped with a treadmill, stationary bike, and tanning station. After a strenuous workout, treat yourself to a juice (stocked at your request) and a soak in the oversized San Laurent marble tub. • For health-conscious Bay Area business travelers, there's Renaissance ClubSport (2805 Jones Rd., Walnut Creek, Calif.; 800/468-3571; www.renaissancehotels.com; doubles from $119), 19 miles from Oakland. While each of the 175 rooms is supplied with a set of two-pound weights, those who want to take it up a New Age notch can reserve one of the five Wellness Rooms, complete with yoga essentials, aromatherapy scents, and calming fountains.
