Delta and Equinox Fitness Clubs have launched a partnership in-order to help combat jet lag, with a new class called SWEATLAG. These initial classes are available at select locations in Los Angeles at their Westwood, Marina del Ray, and West Hollywood locations throughout July and August, where you can RSVP to sign-up.

To take part, in any of these classes, when you return from your upcoming trip, your boarding pass will give you exclusive access to the Sweatlag class at Equinox for 30 days. You do not need to be a member in order to go. Even better SkyMiles members can receive a complimentary 7 day trial membership to Equinox.

Here’s how Delta describes the new class

Delta tapped the renowned fitness brand to curate a series of physical exercises proven to boost energy levels and offset fatigue from lengthy travel. Equinox will offer SWEATLAG classes for recent travelers, Delta SkyMiles members and club members from July 10 through August 2 at three Los Angeles locations: Marina Del Rey, Westwood and West Hollywood.

The low- to moderate-intensity exercises are designed to help muscles synchronize to a new time zone, reduce stiffness associated with travel and generally encourage the body to reset. The benefits offered in the Sweatlag classes amplify the in-flight amenities of Delta’s new flagship A350 aircraft, which begins operating on the Los Angeles to Shanghai route on July 2. Features of the aircraft include wider windows and advanced LED lighting, intended to reduce feelings of jetlag and ensure travelers arrive at their destination feeling more adjusted.

Here’s a few travel tips as well to help combat Jet Lag:

TIP #1: Focus on higher-intensity workouts in the weeks before a trip.
TIP #2: The more whole, unprocessed foods you can eat prior to traveling, the better able your body will be to cope.
TIP #3: Upon arriving, get outside ASAP—sunlight can shift your internal clock.
TIP #4: Eating meals on local time helps your body adjust to new time zones.

Perhaps this is the start of a more long-term partnership. Who knows maybe we’ll see cycling classes in Sky Clubs in the near future, or the ability to earn SkyMiles for taking classes at Equinox.
