The hustle and bustle of business travel can often disrupt our carefully curated health and wellness routines. Whether you're a seasoned traveler or just starting your work travel journey, the ATL Airport District offers a plethora of options to support your health and wellness goals, ensuring you stay energized, focused and balanced while you meet in the District.

 

Exercise and Self-Care

Staying active while traveling can be challenging, but there are plenty of opportunities to keep your body moving in the District. A stroll through any of our parks offers a nice reprieve from meetings and will make you forget you are just miles from one of the biggest cities in the United States. A great option for hitting your 10,000 steps is the Phoenix Trail, a 2-mile rail trail that skirts along the western edge of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. If you’re a plane enthusiast, this is a must-do!

 

Traveling for work typically leaves little time for exploration around the community you’re visiting. One way to do a little sight-seeing while getting your heart rate up is renting a bike from Outback Bikes. The team at Outback Bikes in Hapeville will help you select the ideal two-wheeled vehicle and before you know it, the wind will be in your hair as you take in all the sights and sounds of Hapeville, College Park and Union City.

 

If you're missing your home gym, go where the locals go and work out at one of the District’s workout studios. Cycle Gang, The Wellness SpotSanskrit Moon Yoga and LatJohns Pilates all offer amazing drop-in classes for multiple skill levels guided by talented instructors who will make sure you get a great workout.

Stay active by taking your meeting outside! Connect with your clients on the Historic College Park Golf Course. The 9-hole course provides just the right amount of game time to hit the links and enjoy some fresh air. From moving your body to productive conversations, this is a hole-in-one option for your meeting!

 

Twenty hotels in the District feature fitness centers equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, enabling you to maintain your exercise routine with ease. Whether you prefer cardio workouts, strength training or yoga sessions, you can prioritize movement and promote your physical well-being from the comfort of your District home base. The Atlanta Airport Marriott Gateway, Renaissance Atlanta Airport Gateway and Hilton Atlanta Airport hotels eliminate any excuse of following through on your goals by offering rooms with Peloton bikes in select guest suites. The Atlanta Airport Marriott is home to one of the largest hotel gyms on the market, featuring multiple Peloton bikes, free weights, pickleball courts, as well as indoor and outdoor pools.

 

The Wellness Spot Pedicure

Amidst the excitement of conventions and meetings where you are networking and learning, it's essential to carve out moments for relaxation and self-care. In addition to fitness classes, The Wellness Spot offers a tranquil atmosphere and a long list of services to treat yourself. Schedule a massage, a facial, a manicure or you sign up for one of their fitness classes like Yoga for Self Love. Or visit the newly opened Mind + Body Works in Hapeville to treat yourself to a massage. Remember, nurturing your mental and emotional well-being is just as crucial as caring for your physical health!
