Travelers and Fitness Friends! This year is flying by—it is now April and our BWI gym has been open for two months! We are turning a lot of heads in the airport and working to expand awareness about our first location, next to gate D1. Our team is doing a great job educating travelers about what is included in day, month, and year memberships as well as the type of equipment we provide, our rental workout gear program, and our shower reservation system. We’ve hosted an airport and airline staff appreciation week, a day for military members, and an event to kick off the spring season. We have also captured the media’s attention and have had editors, reporters, and TV crews visit our facility. A list of articles about ROAM can be found on our website and if you tune in to NBC Nighlty News tonight, at 6:30pm EDT you will see ROAM Fitness in a story about airport wellness! Reactions from frequent fliers and health-conscious individuals is pouring in from all over the country and is overwhelmingly positive. People have wanted this healthy alternative for a long time and they are eager for us to expand to more airports. We are working on plans to open two more locations this year and are continuing conversations with airport decision makers at a handful of other airports to secure locations three – five in 2018. In addition to expanding locations, we are developing strategic partnerships that will deepen the value of our shared services for travelers. On April 15th our partnership with Priority Pass begins and its members will receive an exclusive rate for our day passes. We are also partnering with The Club and will have a similar agreement, the launch date is still TBD. If there is a travel, fitness, or hospitality partnership you would like us to consider, please drop us a line at email@example.com. We hope your 2017 is off to a great start and that you have the time to do what you love, be with your family, and take care of your body.
Thank you for being a part of this journey,
Cynthia + Ty
Tomorrow, we're celebrating that Spring is here! Everyone passing through BWI airport is encouraged to stop by ROAM Fitness, next to gate D1, and use our gym and shower facilities for free. If you don't have your workout gear with you don't worry! We have complimentary rentals that include clothing and shoes. If you only want to use our showers that's okay, too; we have four private shower rooms you can reserve for 15-minutes when you check-in at the front desk. And, if you don't have time to workout or shower you can always grab a healthy snack and drink to take with you on the plane.
It doesn’t seem that the winter weather is ready to let up in the Northeast. We’re not willing to let that change our plans for summer’s warm weather and longer days that allow us to spend more time outside in the sun.
Our GEAR UP FOR SUMMER event, taking place from March 15-May 15, 2017 encourages a sunnier mentality for workout routines, while we still have to exercise indoors. For those able to visit our BWI location, if you spend $375 on merchandise (clothing, shoes, retail items, or food and beverage) you will get a free annual membership to ROAM Fitness!
Annual members have the same access to our facilities as day and month pass holders (use of all ROAM Fitness locations as we expand, complimentary rental workout gear, and access to private shower rooms with towel service and Malin+Goetz products). Annual members do have the added benefit of being able to reserve a private shower room 24 hours in advance via our online membership portal. So, when you are checking in for your flight you can book a shower at ROAM Fitness to make sure you make it to your gate refreshed and on time.
