PHOENIX — A lifestyle business focused on airport travelers is betting that working out in a gym is preferable to pacing the gate area.
Roam Fitness is considering adding Phoenix Sky Harbor to its list of potential sites for a full-service gym. Each facility will be past security gates.
The Oregon-based company opened its first airport gym this week at Baltimore-Washington International Airport and noted on its website that it was in discussions with three other airports.
Sky Harbor was on the list of airports the company was interested in talking to about space, along with Los Angeles International, San Francisco International and Chicago O’Hare, among others.
The plan is to have 20 more in place by 2020.
“Fitness is becoming a part of people’s everyday routine,” co-founder Ty Manegold said in a video.
A single day use pass to the fitness club is $40; monthlong membership is $175 a month. The facility will have cardio equipment, free weights, room for yoga and stretching, lockers, showers and private bathrooms.
An attendant will keep an eye on customers’ flight times.
Sky Harbor offers exercise opportunities with a fitness trail in Terminal Four.
The Baltimore gym was scheduled to open at 5 a.m. and shut down at 10 p.m.
