Travel is now an essential part of our lives in today’s globalized world. From an average of six days at the turn of the century, most of us now spend over 20 days a year away from home. This means that we cannot allow travel to disrupt our usual routine, and instead need to find ways of keeping up our activities on the road. This ranges across different aspects of our life, from maintaining sleeping patterns, diet and contact with friends, to ensuring we have time to exercise and to relax. By doing so, we can avoid many of the negative aspects of travel.
TrainAway is committed to helping maintain a balanced lifestyle on the road, especially through exercise. By using a gym travel pass, like the TrainAway platform, you can access gyms all over the world.
What is a gym travel pass?
A gym travel pass or travel passport is a means by which you can get access to gyms when away from your home gym. Traditionally these were paper-based programs that needed co-operation between gym chains. Now, however, they are fully digitized with huge coverage available via mobile app. The process is simple: download the app, search your travel destination and find a gym that suits your needs. You then buy an eticket for your chosen gym, according to the number of times you wish to train. Simply show this ticket or ‘session pass’ to staff at the gym, and they’ll let you in. Unlike other providers, TrainAway has no subscription fee. You only pay when you use the gym.
Why is it important to have a gym travel pass?
The conventional gym membership model is based on regular attendance to one or a few gyms in your home city. In some cases, this extends to a wider region or whole country. However, no single gym membership gives access to gyms all over the world. This means that travel can be enormously disruptive to maintaining an active routine. And not exercising when away from home can be hugely damaging to your health. Sometimes the difficulty in finding a gym in a new destination can prevent us from exercising at all. Having a gym travel pass takes away the complication, providing gym entry without need for language skills or local currency.
Where can I use TrainAway?
TrainAway has the most comprehensive network of any gym travel pass, with gyms in four continents. TrainAway users can access gyms in key European travel hubs like Paris, Rome and Lisbon, as well as destinations ranging from Santiago to San Francisco to Moscow. The easiest way to find your nearest gym is using the TrainAway app, or by heading to search.trainaway.fit and searching your location.
