New year, new you? Not necessarily for business travelers

3

While fitness and wellness routines may increase for most people at the start of a new year, this is not necessarily the case for business travelers. According to the latest data, most business travelers are not adhering to their health and wellness regimens during business trips.

The data shows that:

• Only 40% TRY to stick to their fitness routines when on the road

• 54% acknowledge that their exercise and wellness routines are usually disrupted by travel

• The data varies based on geography

o 84% of Asia Pacific business travelers are in control of their routines when traveling

o 76% of Americas business travelers are in control of their routines when traveling
o 73% of European business travelers are in control of their routines when traveling

As a way to help offset these trends, many hotels and destinations around the world like Westin and JW Marriott continue to add new “on demand” fitness offerings into their programming.
