Per­sonal train­ing on de­mand is the new thing

Call it travel in­sur­ance for your work­out: More and more ho­tels—like the US Grant Ho­tel in San Diego, the Ritz-Carl­ton Or­lando, W Ho­tels na­tion­wide, and se­lect Kimp­ton ho­tels—are giv­ing guests the op­tion to sum­mon train­ers or yo­gis for one-on-one ses­sions. “The con­cept of in-room per­sonal train­ing was a nov­elty five years ago, but now peo­ple em­brace the idea of work­ing out out­side the walls of a ho­tel gym,” says Vanessa Martin, the founder of Strength in Num­bers, which links train­ers to ho­tels (you book through the concierge). For­got your gear? The new site Rou­tinely.co de­liv­ers a full kit (sneaks too!) for a $10 day rental to ho­tels in New York City and, soon, San Fran­cisco. All that, and no line for your post­work­out shower.
