Familiarity may breed contempt, as the saying goes. But not when it comes to getting workouts in while traveling. Having access to your usual, tried-and-true workout while on the road lessens the chance you’ll blow it off. The following boutique gyms have nationwide (and in some cases, international) locations, meaning you can easily drop into a class where you know the drill, no matter where you are. And that means no excuses—sorry!

SoulCycle‘s choreographed indoor cycling class is offered at 65 studios nationwide and has a serious cult following who can’t get enough of the combo of intense cardio and positive vibes. (Cool-downs are accompanied by the flicker of a candle and affirmations from the instructors.) While there are no class packages thatapplyto all the studios, the staff will transfer credits of equal or lesser value between locations upon request.

Flywheel Sports

The stadium-style cycling studio at Flywheel Sports separates itself from the rest with “tech-packs” attached to each bike that track speed and resistance, holding cyclists accountable for 45- or 60-minute classes of nonstop cardio. Competitive types can opt in to a leaderboard that displays how they’re stacking up throughout class compared to other riders. With 40 studios throughout the U.S. and two in Dubai that offer classes from early morning to late evening, it’s easy to find something that fits a busy schedule. Some studios also offer Flybarre strength-training classes. Individual classes and package prices vary by city, but jet-setters can purchase a “Superfly National” membership, which entitles them to unlimited Flywheel and Flybarre classes at any studio, plus early booking privileges and a 20 percent discount on gear.
