Take Offs & Land­ings

A good way to while away the down time of a long lay­over is to get up and get mov­ing

Business Traveler (USA) - - BUSINESS TRAVELER -

Ten Air­port Work­outs – Long lay­over? Get up and get mov­ing. Cincin­nati mon­i­tors se­cu­rity wait times. Toronto set for air-rail link. Plus new route news.

There’s noth­ing like a few hours squeezed into an econ­omy class seat to make one re­al­ize how much the hu­man body craves un­con­strained move­ment. Af­ter a while rolled up like sausages in a fly­ing alu­minum tin, most of us just want to un­fold, un­wind and work out the kinks. Ac­cord­ing to our friends at air­port­gyms.com – a crowdsourced com­pen­dium of work­out fa­cil­i­ties on or around North Amer­i­can air­ports – fliers in the US and Canada can get to a gym within an easy cab ride of most ma­jor air­ports. How­ever flight times or ex­pense ac­counts may not al­low a taxi trip, so we’ve put to­gether a list in al­pha­bet­i­cal or­der of ten air­port work­out ideas ei­ther on-premise or con­ve­niently nearby. 1 AIR­PORT: AT­LANTA HARTS­FIELD JACK­SON IN­TER­NA­TIONAL AIR­PORT – ATL

Where is it? There are about a half­dozen gyms listed on air­port­gyms.com within a few min­utes drive of At­lanta’s mas­sive aero­plex. But if your choice is to stay on the air­port proper, one easy and in­ex­pen­sive al­ter­na­tive is the un­der­ground cor­ri­dor (with mov­ing side­walks) that joins all the ter­mi­nals, T,A, B, C, D & E.

Notes: The tun­nel is about 1.5 miles long and it takes less than 20 min­utes at a leisurely pace to walk from the main ter­mi­nal to the In­ter­na­tional (E) ter­mi­nal.

2 AIR­PORT: CHANGI IN­TER­NA­TIONAL AIR­PORT – SIN THE AM­BAS­SADOR TRAN­SIT HO­TEL

Where is it? At Ter­mi­nal 1, near the tran­sit ho­tel at the De­par­ture Tran­sit Lounge East, Level 3.

Se­lect Fa­cil­i­ties: Swim­ming pool and jacuzzi, plus spa and work­out equip­ment.
