Flying can be awfully stressful, and one of the healthiest ways to relieve stress is through exercise.
Soon, air travelers passing through Baltimore-Washington International Airport will be able to sweat out their stress and stay fit right up until the time they board their next flight.
USA Today columnist Harriet Baskas reported ROAM Fitness will open a post-security workout facility at BWI Monday.
Located in the new connector between Concourses D and E, the 1,175-square-foot fitness space will be large enough to accommodate nearly two dozen people at a time. Highlights will include cardio equipment, free weights, yoga mats, medicine balls and a TRX system, among other features.
The facility will be open daily from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. and travelers will have the option to rent or buy fitness gear for their pre-flight workout. Rentals are included when members purchase a gym pass.
Showers and towels are also available to reserve for up to 15 minutes, with ROAM Fitness offering four private bathrooms. Vacuum-sealed bags will also be available to travelers so they won't have to worry about taking any embarrassing odors with them.

What makes ROAM Fitness unique in comparison to some other airport fitness facilities is that travelers will be able to access it after they've gone through their security checkpoint.
"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," ROAM co-founder Cynthia Sandall told Baskas.
According to the company's website, day passes, month passes and year passes can be purchased for $40, $175 and $600, respectively. However, travelers can save when they pre-order.
While ROAM Fitness' first opening will be at BWI, it also plans to open a public post-security fitness facility at North Carolina's Charlotte Douglas International Airport later this year, according to Baskas.
