Fitness Challenge: Day 69
When you travel for business, you don't always have time to exercise, but you can easily incorporate a short room workout into your day. If you have more time, you can hit the hotel's gym.
At the Sheraton Society Hill Hotel in Philadelphia, you can get a cardio workout in one room, filled with elliptical trainers, treadmills and stationary bicycles, and go next door for weights, stretching and stability balls.
If you have lots of time, head upstairs to the glass enclosed pool, where you can swim laps, or soothe tired muscles in the hot tub. The pool also has a family-friendly wading area and lounges.
Although the gym could use a bosu ball, it did have a couple of nice touches; foam rollers to get out knots, a jump rope, and chilled towels in a mini fridge. The work out ares were also bright and cheerful; sometimes hotel gyms are relegated to dark, uninviting spaces.
