If you’re looking to hit the gym on your next trip, then you’re in luck if you’re flying out of Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI), which is home to Roam Fitness. Roam Fitness isn’t new, however it’s a great concept and something that I’d love to see come to more airports.
It’s no Equinox gym, but it doesn’t need to be as most likely you’re stopping in for some cardio or weights before your flight. When it comes to access, the gym charges $25 for a day pass, or if you’re traveling through a lot you can become a member for $30/month, which isn’t a bad deal.
When it comes to Priority Pass, here’s the latest. ROAM is a partner with Priority Pass and Lounge Key. All Priority Pass/Lounge Key members receive a 20% discount on Day Passes at ROAM. While it’s nice that Priority Pass members receive a discount, I’d love to see this be included as a “lounge” for Priority Pass members, as they’re looking to evolve their lounges, as they’ve started adding airport restaurants the past few years.
Roam Fitness is currently only at Baltimore Washington International Airport, however there’s definitely opportunity to expand to other airports across the country. When it comes to additional partnerships, I could see them partnering with some other gyms, so if you’re a member of Lifetime Fitness, you’d have access here etc.
When it comes to the facilities, ROAM does have showers available, which rival some airport lounge showers.
ROAM Fitness, is the first true airport gym we’ve seen, however another option for those traveling through Detroit Metropolitan Airport is the WestinWORKOUT Fitness Studio at the Westin Detroit Metropolitan Airport. Airport guests may use the Fitness Studio for $15, which isn’t a bad deal.
There’s a lot of room for growth for fitness facilities at the airports. The VIP Lounge at Punta Cana International recently opened and features an outdoor swimming pool, if you’re looking to get in a few laps in before a flight.
What are your thoughts about ROAM Fitness, or working out at the airport in general? Is this something that interests you, or would you rather not spend additional time at the airport? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
