As the decade comes to a close, it’s inevitable that we’d start thinking about how wellness travel has changed over the past 10 years.
With more people interested in fitness than ever before, there has been an uptick in people working out while traveling. ClassPass recently made this announcement in its 2019 Fitness Trends, finding that 18 percent of business travelers booked workouts in a city other than where they lived, compared with 14 percent in 2018. Surprisingly, Kansas City residents were the most likely to book a workout in a different city. “We have seen that no matter the reason for travel, people are building fitness into their routine on the go,” the report read.
Not only is technology making it easier to exercise while traveling, but as we’ve reported, hotels have also started to offer more wellness amenities — whether that’s yoga mats in rooms or activewear-lending — so that people can continue their wellness routines when away. Some have started to include Peloton bikes in their gyms — a smart move, despite the recent advertising flop that sent its shares nosediving.
