ROAM Fitness

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.

ROAM Fitness Beefing up with PHL Branch

Passengers at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) with extra time on their hands will soon be able to work out at the newest branch of ROAM Fitness.

The airport gym and shower facility concept currently has a branch at Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI) post-security by Gate D1.

The new branch at PHL aipport will feature 1,500 square feet of state-of-the-art cardio equipment, free weights and a cable system, and connected fitness machines with on-demand and live classes.

Stretching space with yoga mats and props, an infrared sauna, and private shower rooms with towel service and Malin+Goetz products are also planned.

Travelers will be able to access the gym with a day pass ($25/day) or via an annual membership ($35/month). Day passes can also be purchased in packets of 3 and 5 for $65 and $100, respectively.

Workout gear to borrow or buy

For those who aren’t traveling with workout gear, ROAM Fitness has complimentary loaner gear that includes Lululemon technical athletic apparel and Brooks running shoes. Travelers may also purchase new gear including Lululemon, Girlfriend Collective and Rhone apparel.

And for those who prefer to exercise in their own gear, ROAM will vacuum seal sweaty clothes so odors don’t permeate carry-on items.


At the BWI outlet, ROAM Fitness offers guests private shower rooms, bookable for 15-minute slots.

Private showers are planned for the PHL branch as well, along with an infrared sauna that uses light to create heat. Those visiting on day passes may book shower time at check-in. Annual members can reserve a shower or sauna 24 hours in advance.

As with its BWI location, flight information display boards at the PHL facility will help travelers can keep an eye flight schedules and changes.
