Taking advantage of exercise opportunities while you are at the airport is a great way to incorporate fit travel into your business life
There are a lot of business travelers that struggle to stay fit while on the road and airport walking routes can make it easier to incorporate fit travel into your business life. With packed schedules, lack of free time and time spent enroute, it is understandable why there may not be an opportunity to fit a work out in. Most travelers find themselves waiting around for flights and see that time at the airport as a window of productivity. The following airports have made it possible to utilize that productivity in a healthy, heart-happy way. Check out the airports that have teamed up with The American Heart Association and other health conscious groups to create walking routes for ticketed passengers. Remember, there doesn’t need to be a designated walking path to incorporate fit travel into your busy schedule!
