What do you do during long layovers or delays at the airport?
While we try to get in some airport yoga or a short walk through the terminal, the reality is we end up at a mediocre bar where we spend too much money on fatty food and overpriced beer.
Actually doing yoga at the airport instead of drinking beer! ;)
Not a huge deal if you only travel here and there, but when you frequently fly for business or pleasure, it’s not the healthiest habit for your body or wallet.
So we were immediately intrigued when introduced to Sanctifly.
What if instead of being stuck at the airport, you could easily access an airport hotel’s pool or gym to swim, workout or just recharge? And then get to freshen up with a shower, so you arrive at your destination looking and feeling your best?
Unfortunately, if you’ve tried this on your own, you were most likely turned away. Airport hotels don’t let just anyone in due to insurance and security considerations.
What is the Sanctifly travel app?
Sanctifly is an app that gives travelers access to airport hotels’ gyms, pools and spas—without having to book a room. You can use it at airports all around the world, either during long layovers or before or after you arrive at the airport.
The Sanctifly app takes care of those pesky security and insurance issues we noted above, finally making it easier to stay fit while you travel.
Sanctifly has membership options that make sense for business travelers, but if you’re like us, you might be more interested in purchasing a one-time pass that gives you access to gyms when and where you need it most.
Luckily, Sanctifly has pay-per-use options (called the Blue Membership)—and we’re giving FIVE awesome winners one free pass to use anytime you like! (Valued at $50.)
UPDATE: The Giveaway is now over :)
But first, here’s a closer look at how Sanctifly works.
How Does Sactifly Work?
1. Download the Sanctifly App (Available on both iOS and Android)
2. Search For Your Hotel Gym
The app lets you quickly search for the gym that meets your needs based on location and amenities. You can even see the number of treadmills, bikes, etc. to ensure you’ll find what you’re looking for! Right now there are 50 locations in the US and Europe, with more locations (including a launch in Asia) coming soon! If you need some workout gear, click here.
3. Confirm And Enjoy
Confirm your hotel gym and receive your unique access code! You can even order an Uber or Shuttle straight from the confirmation page to quickly and easily access the hotel gym.
We see tons of new travel apps pop up, but few catch our attention. Sanctifly, however, is worth knowing about.
We’re excited that wasted time at the airport no longer has to be a huge drag. We have a few passes for Sanctifly that we’ll be pulling out next time we have a delay or long layover. And there’s nothing we love more than new travel hacks that make flying less stressful!
Now, back to you!

What do you think about the idea behind Sanctifly?
We were not compensated for this post. A huge thanks does go out to Sanctifly for providing the passes for the giveaway!
This is pretty intriguing idea. We travel to teach yoga and still find it hard to find time to practice or do other fitness activities. Would love to try it out!
The best way to stay fit when travelling is just walk around and enjoy the vacation.. Stay Fit
