Take Offs & Landings
A good way to while away the down time of a long layover is to get up and get moving
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.
