@FattoFitRadio Show recap and links...

Hey guys we hope you all listened to the show this morning on News Talk Radio 710AM or on IHEARTRADIO. If you missed it you can listen to todays show and past shows on our podcast HERE
We talked about a lot this morning, so here is a recap and links to pages we talked about...
Nerd Fitness Blog Traveling tips...
Whenever I get to a new town, my first mission is to go for a walk and find one of three things:

  • A pull up bar or swing set
  • A sturdy tree branch
  • A building or bus stop overhang
Localeikki - App that helps you find places to workout when you travel
Have you ever been traveling & just wanted to find a good place to run, walk or ride? Or maybe you had a workout to do and would enjoy jumping into a local group’s training session if only you could find one?

That’s why we created localeikki. We want to help people be active no matter where they are. localeikki is a database of recreation locations that are publicly accessible and locally recommended.
localeikki is a riff off of the concept locavore: loca for local & leikki means play in Finnish—play local. Our goal is that the business not only helps people be active, but also encourages information sharing of great places to be active. Did someone tell you about a good place to be active? Play it forward by sharing the great public places to run, bike, & play in your hometown.

Airport Workouts

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Texas (DFW)
An airport big enough to have its own ZIP code had better have some good exercise options, right? The 
Grand Hyatt DFW hotel (connected to International Terminal D) has a 24-hour rooftop pool and a fitness center that offers Life Fitness Cross Trainers, exercise bikes, treadmills, free weights, weight machines, and a steam room. A day pass (for the pool and gym) is $33. “That’s a small price to pay to know I got a good workout in before I get on an eight-hour flight,” says Gillotti. 

LaGuardia Airport, New York (LGA)
Most gyms aren’t attached to the airport, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore them during a long layover. “When you start getting into a three-hour window, that’s when you can grab a taxi, go get a workout, and then get back through security,” Gillotti explains. Just a 3-mile cab ride from New York City’s most central airport, the 
Rock Health and Fitness Club in Astoria, Queens, boasts 30,000 square feet with a boxing studio, isometric equipment, and the real highlight, a 30-foot rock-climbing wall. A day pass costs $20. 

San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
In early 2012, a 150-square-foot storage room in Terminal 2 was converted into a relaxing yoga studio that’s free to all ticketed passengers — the first of its kind in the world. (Fun fact: SFO designed its own “yoga” icon since it didn’t exist in the guide of airport pictograms.) Even better, there are no cell phones allowed.

Minnesota-St. Paul International Airport (MSP)
It may not have fancy equipment, but the busiest airport in the upper Midwest has something the others don’t: a 1.4-mile walking loop through the main terminal, clearly marked with overhead signs. The track opened as part of the American Heart Association’s Start Walking program in 2007.

Fort Lauderdale / Hollywood International Airport (FLL)
Take a 10-minute taxi ride to the 
World Gym East Fort Lauderdale. The $10 guest pass includes a locker. 

Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW)
Located in the Edward H. McNamara Terminal, the 
Westin Detroit Metropolitan Airport hotel’s state-of-the-art WestinWORKOUT gym lets you use free weights, treadmills, stair machines, and exercise bikes for $15 per day. Fun fact: Should you desire to stay overnight in the Westin, you can get a room equipped with a stationary bike or treadmill, plus a medicine ball, fitness mat, and Pilates DVD. 
Vancouver International Airport (YVR)
For $18, you can spend your layover in the 
Fairmont Vancouver Airport hotel’s recently-upgraded workout room. It overlooks the U.S. departures area, so it’s designed for people-watching. In addition to the usual array of fitness equipment (rowing machines, treadmills, etc.), you can do wet laps in the three-lane pool (with self-adjusted current). Join the Fairmont President’s Club (free) and you’ll even be able to rent Adidas workout gear or an MP3 player
Sky Harbor Airport PHX
Free 1 mile Fitness trail located in Terminal 4 clearly marked with blue line and has a views of surrounding mountain ranges. Also equipped with water bottle fill stations.
