Gone are the days of sad hotel gyms stocked with circa-1986 treadmills. Now, hospitality chains make sure one of the top amenities (besides plush robes and fragrant shampoo) is an awesome exercise option

You'll get a sneak peek of this partnership when you hit the fitness center at a Fairfield Inn & Suites location and spot nutrition tips and training videos from Life Time Fitness in the facilities. But that access doesn't end when you check out: Customers are then given a free, seven-day trial at any Life Time Fitness location to use any time in the future. (Psst...

Westin + New Balance

Packing sneakers into your suitcase can be a depressing endeavor: They take up a lot of room, and you know you're unlikely to actually use them. Westin knows that too, which is why they'll lend you New Balance gear (clothes and sneakers) during your stay. Just pay $5 and they'll have your sizes waiting for you in your room. Just be sure to return them at the front desk when you leave.

Loyalty club members can deck themselves out in Reebok apparel and running shoes, which are delivered straight to your room. It's a free rental; you just need to return them when you check out. Many Fairmont locations go the extra mile (so to speak) and provide running maps, so you can enjoy the scenery in your temporary city while getting in a good run.

These Leading Hotels Offer Healthy Food Services.)

Self-described "yoga rebel" Tara Stiles brings her classes away from her NYC Strala studio and to the television set in your hotel room. She created exclusive videos for all W Hotels that are actually designed around the room you're standing (and down dogging) in. Namaste. (De-stress During Travel with On-the-Go Yoga Gear.)

It can be tough to leave your pristine, fluffy white bed when staying in a hotel room, but Marriott has an idea for how to motivate you to get out and get active. At their locations in the Caribbean and Latin America, you can borrow a Go Pro Hero4 from the front desk and use it for free during your stay. Here come the underwater selfies!
