Whether it’s for business or pleasure, you needn’t forgo your workout when traveling. From the panoramic view from the running machines at Park Hyatt Tokyo to the Beijing Shangri-La’s three-floor health club, these hotel gyms are destinations in their own right. And as fitness group Equinox plans to open its first hotel in 2018, the ties between travel and exercise are stronger than ever. So now there’s no excuse…
Soho House, Chicago
This converted warehouse includes a17,000-square-foot ‘gymnasium’ – appropriately named, considering its retro-inspired equipment and old-school aesthetic. Spar with an on-site personal trainer in the professional boxing ring, then cool off with 20 lengths in the House’s signature rooftop pool. sohohousechicago.com

Four Seasons
Hotel Ritz, Lisbon
The easiest way to do a lap of a city? On an al fresco rooftop running track. Soak up panoramic views of Lisbon’s skyline and Tagus river as you sweat it out in the Mediterranean heat. With one-on-
one personal trainers on hand, everyone can find their inner Olympic spirit. fourseasons.com

W, San Francisco
Designed to motivate your mind as well as your muscles, the W’s 24-hour fitness center features color-changing lights, an adrenalin-boosting soundtrack and a giant skylight to stimulate the senses.
