It’s Fit2Fly week at airiports in Boston, Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Cleveland and that means free healthy snacks, complimentary massages and giveaways that include Fitbit wireless activity-tracking wristbands and travel yoga mats through May 2.

Coordinated by AIRMALL USA, which operates shops and restaurants at the participating airports, Fit2Fly Week also features free health and wellness services and handouts with tips on staying healthy while traveling.

Activities vary by airport and day.

At Boston Logan’s Terminal B, the schedule includes free yoga lessons on Wednesday, free 5-minute massages on Thursday and healthy snack tastings at the Berkshire Farms Market on Friday.

At BWI there will be free yoga classes on Wednesday, with giveaways of yoga mats, water bottles and jump ropes and a free “healthy choices” tasting event at the Silver Diner from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. On Friday, there will be a 1K airport Fun Walk with a drawing for a Fitbit.

At Pittsburgh International Airport you’ll find free yoga lessons and giveaways on Wednesday, complimentary foot massages at the Massage Bar on Concourse A on Thursday and – kale alert – on Friday, there will be a sampling event for Pinkberry’s kale and strawberry smoothies.
