It’s getting harder to come up with a reason for skipping the gym—especially now that hotels are making it easier to break a sweat in the comfort of your own room.

The Excuse: I don’t have time to exercise.
The Solution: As part of its brand-wide commitment to wellness, InterContinental Hotel Group’s Even Hotels feature in-room “fitness zones” that include cork flooring, balance balls, resistance bands, and suggested moves. (Urban brand Tryp by Wyndham and Omni Hotels & Resorts also have fitness equipment in select rooms.)

The Excuse: I need someone to motivate me.
The Solution: At 45 Park Lane, in London, you can follow local fitness guru Matt Roberts through video drills (just call the front desk for mats and resistance bands). The Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto has joined with Canada’s own Lululemon to produce a 25-minute yoga video that can be streamed via in-room TVs and iPads.

The Excuse: I didn’t have space to pack my running shoes.
The Solution: Westin has been loaning New Balance gear to guests for years. Now other hotels are following suit. Loyalty-club members at all Fairmont properties can request Reebok apparel and sneakers, while Trump Hotels offer Travel Fit kits that come with iPods and Under Armour shoes and clothes.
