Airport/Lounge Gyms

Thu Jul 11, 2019 6:30 pm

Do any airports contain a gym inside? Or gym's inside a lounge?

I was reading the blog about ATL getting rid of smoking and someone (potentially jokingly) said the areas will be replaced with gyms and it got me thinking.

Doesn't need to be a YMCA. But even a couple treadmills and dumbbells, similar to a hotel gym, would be a nice place to spend some time on a 1+hr connection. Obviously, showers in the lounge would be required as well.

Wanted to get others thoughts...

Yeah thats all we need, stinky sweaty people on the plane. There are already enough people who board with objectionable hygiene and odor.

YYZ has a Goodlife Fitness branch, although you have to leave security to get there. I had a super long (7 hour) layover there last summer so I went and got a day pass and had a workout, still had four hours to spare. It was pretty handy and made the layover seem less miserable and I got to be refreshed for my final flight.

Having showers isn't the problem. People choosing NOT to use it for whatever reason is the issue.

Seoul Incheon has a lovely Korean spa landside, which is perfect for a 3+ hour layover. Not necessarily a gym, but a nice way to relax in jacuzzis or in the napping area.
