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 now knows about it and makes an effort to provide us a new airport gyms listing.

This recent phone interview, with USA Today, lead to both an online mention and a print mention according to the reporter I spoke with. You can read the story here: Airports get into the fitness craze for stressed travelers

He then lists them by state.

“I’d have these massive layovers where I’m sitting there doing nothing, and for an active guy like me, I can’t sit like that,” says the San Diego-area resident and avid runner. “I think the public is slowly coming around to fitness and the value of it.”
