Gym to Go

At the end of a long day of meetings, sometimes the last thing a business traveler wants to do is change into sweats and head down to the hotel gym or tackle the local running trails.  But exercise becomes that much harder to shirk with a Travel Trainer ($89.90 from travtrainer.com) beckoning reproachfully from the corner of the room.  Perfect for the harried road warrior, this portable exercise kit fits into a 56-cm bag and comprises a fitness ball, exercise mat and resistance bands (pulled taut they form the basis of muscle-building routines).  An accompanying disc details how you can achieve a full workout without leaving your room, using only this minimal equipment.  Exercises from yoga and pilates are also explained.  No time for the gym?  No access to facilities?  No excuses.
