It’s always funs to give interviews. Over the years I have done them for radio shows, magazines, blogs, newspapers, etc. I always feel very fortunate to to give an interview for 1 simple reason – it gets the news out there to the masses that this site exists and that there is a resource for active travelers wanting to do something with their delays or layovers other than sit in a terminal watching people walk by. This, in turn, naturally leads to a chance at a new airport gym listing or 2 or the updating of a few dated airport gym listings as someone who was previously unaware of AirportGyms.com now knows about it and makes an effort to provide us a new airport gyms listing.
