Travel often comes with excitement, but it also causes some disruption. Perhaps the most noticeable break in routine comes in the form of missed workouts and on-the-go eating. It’s not always easy to fit exercise into your busy travel itinerary, but it is nice to have the option of a fitness center wherever you go.

Many in the travel industry—including airports—are realizing that fitness is a top priority for travelers. Airports all around the world have made it easy for travelers to access fitness centers and other healthy amenities while away from home. We’ve highlighted 9 airports that have made fitness a priority—be sure to check out these awesome extras on your next layover. 

Hong Kong International

A top travel epicenter, Hong Kong’s airport is fit to handle the crowds with plenty of entertainment options. Get competitive with a simulated game of basketball, boxing, soccer or skiing in the i-Sports area or step outside and play on a 9-hole golf course that meets U.S. Golf Association standards.

Zurich Airport

Stop by the service and information desk at the multi-story car park 2 (on the first floor) and rent a bike, a pair of inline skates or a pair of Nordic walking poles. Don’t worry about getting too sweaty—there are showers available too.
