A new airport fitness concept is addressing the physical and mental stress to which frequent travelers are often prone. While it’s important to maintain a fitness routine away from home, it’s often difficult to fit in a workout while traveling. This was the inspiration behind the ROAM Fitness airport gym, now open at Baltimore-Washington International Airport.
This first-of-its-kind gym, located behind security at BWI, offers travelers a way to get in a workout and escape the busy terminals while waiting for flights. The 1,175-square-foot gym is located in the new connector between concourses D and E and is outfitted with a range of Technogym cardio equipment, free weights, stretching space and yoga mats. There is a private shower with towel service, and the staff will vacuum-seal used workout clothing to prevent odor from permeating luggage.
ROAM Fitness members will have access to lululemon athletic clothes and Brooks Running shoe rentals, as well as a carefully curated healthy food and beverage menu. Showers are equipped with Malin+Goetz products.
ROAM is offering promotional pricing through April 1, to celebrate the opening. Prices are $25 for a day, $150 for a month and $400 for a year. The company plans to open two more locations in 2017 and to have 20 locations open within five years. Potential airports include Atlanta (ATL), Boston (BOS), Charlotte (CLT), Jacksonville (JAX), Miami (MIA), New York (JFK and LGA) and Washington (IAD).
