Passengers flying out of Baltimore/Washington International Airport will soon be able to get a real workout — and a shower — before their flights.
A post-security fitness facility, called ROAM Fitness, is scheduled to open at BWI on Monday, in the new connector between Concourses D and E.
The workout space will be open daily from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. and is large enough to accommodate 21 people, who will have access to cardio equipment, stretching space, free weights, kettle bells, medicine balls, stability balls, a TRX system, yoga mats and a pull-up bar.
Travelers who don’t have their own workout gear can rent or purchase activewear and footwear and have their own workout outfits vacuum-sealed after a visit to keep odors from mingling.
There’s also a shower reservation system to make sure everyone can freshen up before their flight.
“To ensure travelers can dedicate the appropriate time and energy for their workout and enjoy a refreshing escape from the stresses of air travel, we made sure our facility was located after security, since going through security is a time variable that can never be predicted,” said ROAM co-founder Cynthia Sandall.
Access to ROAM Fitness at BWI is currently $40 for a day pass, $175 for a monthly pass and $600 for a yearly pass. Passes can be purchased online, on a smartphone or at the door. (Check the website for deals on discounted passes.) The next ROAM Fitness center scheduled to open in 2017 is slated for Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
