7. The Other World: A.K.A. Outside > Airport Fitness Hacks

Airport Fitness Hacks

We include an airport fitness section in this chapter because an airport is kind of outside of our accustomed realm. If you do much traveling, you’ve probably spent a lot of time waiting in or stranded at airports. Let’s see a show of hands for people who’ve been trapped at an airport and felt like crap!

You can generally get around the forced sedentary behavior of airports by crafting your own exercise routine, or perhaps using an airport gym. By using the Airport Gyms website (www.airportgyms.com), you can try to find a gym or health club at the airport where you will be hanging out. In general, good luck with that!

Testing this app, I got three hits for Boston, but two involved 10-minute taxi rides, so they’re not really located at the airport; they’re in hotels that allow you to buy a day pass to use their weight machines, which is worth it only if you have a very long wait at an airport and want to cough up the taxi and gym-pass fare.
