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 sleeping, sweating, and down-dogging in. (Related: De-stress During Travel with On-the-Go Yoga Gear.)

Even better? Hit up one of the many gorgeous W locations for a FUEL Weekend, a wellness retreat designed to let you detox, retox, and repeat. W teams up with top trainers to bring all the hottest workouts together in one place (the first weekend in Punta de Mita, Mexico, featured Stiles herself, plus Nike trainers Joe Holder and Ashley Guarassi and celeb trainer Jason Wimberly), so you get a weekend full of solid sweat sessions—and the opportunity to eat, drink, and dance the night away before you do it all again the next day.

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.

Nervous about running in a new city? Westin also has 250 Run Concierges around the world that have prepped 3- and 5-mile running routes (plus maps!) and offer group runs starting and ending at the hotel. (Bonus: Westin just partnered with the app Charity Miles, so for the entire summer, every workout you log at a Westin will donate an extra $1 per mile to the charity of your choice.) 

And if that isn't enough, you also have the option to hop on a Peloton bike and stream a live or on-demand cycling class (either in the hotel's fitness studio or right in your guest room) at 50 Westin locations across the U.S. (P.S. Peloton has officially branched into treadmills too.)

Visiting New York and want to check out the city's one-of-a-kind studio fitness culture? Take advantage by staying at one of the Triumph Hotels' properties (including The Frederick, Hotel Edison, and four others in Manhattan) and opting for the TravelPack, a partnership with workout booking service FitReserve that gives you access to three studio fitness classes for the exclusive price of $54.00 (a steal compared to the $35-per-class pricing of most city studios). Choose from the 400 of the hottest workout studios and 44,000 classes—such as CITYROW, Barry's Bootcamp, EverybodyFights, and Swerve team cycling. 

Repeat visitor? Your pack is good for three months, so you can hit up a workout each time you're in the city, or pack them into one trip for a DIY fitness retreat.

The 60+ boutique hotels under the Kimpton name are each decorated in a unique, funky style to complement the city in which they are found, and the brand's free spirit extends to their fitness offerings. Guests at all locations can rent PUBLIC bikes (a hip San Francisco cycling company), which are customized in a bright cherry red just for Kimpton. (P.S. These Leading Hotels Offer Healthy Food Services.)

Gansevoort Hotels promise glamour all the way, and that extends to their relationship with Exhale, the fitness company offering the latest in exercise trends like barre, yoga, and core-fusion cardio classes, which has locations in two of the three Gansevoort hotels. At some Gansevoort locations, the Exhale studio is also linked to an Exhale spa for a full-circle health experience.

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.

Missing your at-home barre studio while on vaca? Now, you can workout like a true ballerina right in your hotel room at Mariott locations across the world, thanks to their Behind the Barre partnership with The Joffrey Ballet. You can stream full-body barre method, core strength, and stretching workouts (designed specifically for the hotel room environment) led by two of Joffrey's professional dancers.

If barre isn't your thing, you can also stream yoga, mindfulness, and HIIT workouts from celeb trainer Nora Tobin (a former contributing expert for Shape) or even attend a multi-day mind-body wellness retreat with the fit pro herself.

Sophisticated Highlights

“Traditionally, women have been cautious about DIY highlighting because kits are so difficult to use,” says David Stanko, the master colorist and vice president of technical design and education at Madison Reed. No longer, thanks to the company’s Light Works Balayage Highlighting Kit ($45, madison-reed.com).

It comes with an applicator that simulates the shape of the tool used for an in-salon “balayage” service (a salon technique in which lightener is painted on in streaks freehand). It includes a finishing toning glaze to refine and condition lightened strands. Pro tip: For a modern look, start highlights two inches from roots.
