Stuck at the Airport? Work out at the gym.

Want a workout space at the airport?

Yoga rooms and mileage-measured walking paths at a handful of US airports offer travelers a way to get some exercise before or between flights.

But for those who want to squeeze in a workout in a gym without leaving the secure side of the airport, ROAM Fitness’s gym at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) has been the only option.

The BWI branch opened in 2017 next to Gate D1 and offers cardio equipment, dumbells, and other workout equipment as well power equipped lockers (for charging your gear), reservable showers, and rental gear. Current hours are Sunday to Friday, 6 am to 6 pm.

Now ROAM Fitness has opened a second location. This one is located post-security in Terminal F at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL). Hours are 7 am to 7 pm, daily.

This location has all the amenities offered by the BWI location, plus a reservable single-occupant infrared sauna with red light therapy.

Day passes, which are good at both locations, are $25. You can also get 3 passes for $65, 5 for $100, or pay $35/month for an annual membership.

A visit includes access to the gym and all the equipment, a reservable 15-minute shower slot, and complimentary workout gear rental. You can buy workout gear or use your own and ROAM Fitness will vacuum-seal your sweaty clothes so they don’t stink up the clean clothes in your suitcase.
