Problem: While all that business travel is fun and exotic, itâ€™s really getting in the way of your workout routine. Pack all that extra gear? Venture out into foreign territory for a run? As if!
Solution: W Hotels and Puma know that if youâ€™re in a workout mindset, nothing as minor as an out-of-town jaunt should slow you down. So theyâ€™ve teamed up to offer TrainAway, a line of gear aimed at fitness buffs who have to take their routines on the road. Starting this month, the W Hotel Store will sell Pumaâ€™s TrainAway shirts ($50), shorts ($55), and shoes with a handy hotel key card compartment ($140). The TrainAway lineâ€™s highlight is a travel-friendly jacket that converts into a bag for all your workout gear ($135). The W Hotel in New York will offer guests rental iPods pre-loaded with running guides, and W Hotels everywhere will loan out Puma bikes and free maps of local bike and jogging routes. Now thereâ€™s no reason not to get out there and go for a jog, even if youâ€™re in unfamiliar territory (sorry, all you â€œbut-Iâ€™m-on-vacation!â€ excuse-makers!)
