Fitness studio to open at Heathrow Airport

Heathrow Airport has signed a deal with FlyFit to open a wellness and fitness studio in Terminal 2.

The gym, which will open in autumn, will offer passengers both instructor-led and interactive strength, restorative yoga, and cardio classes. 

The studio will be after security in departures and accessible through a lift down to its private facilities. FlyFit will provide rental workout clothing, shower facilities and healthy food options to help travellers stay well ahead of their flight.

Details on costs and what equipment will be in the studio are not yet available.

FlyFit has been developed by Brian Chappon and Lauren Perkins, two fitness enthusiasts who have both experienced the challenges of maintaining mental and physical health while travelling.

Perkins, FlyFit chief marketing officer and co-founder, said: “As a long time instructor, coach, triathlete and entrepreneur, I saw my performance and energy levels suffer as I racked up frequent flyer miles. I knew others faced these same challenges. FlyFit was born out of our shared passion to improve health and well-being on the road for ourselves and others. We are creating a space for fitness and community that has previously been lacking in airports.”

Terminal 2 sees more than 16 million passengers fly through it each year on 25 airlines.

Chris Annetts, Heathrow’s retail and service proposition director, said: “The new premium service from FlyFit brings personalised exercise choices into our customer’s journey, leaving them refreshed and ready for their onward travel.”

In February, Roam Fitness opened a gym at Baltimore-Washington International Airport in Maryland, US.
