Avoid jet lag: Getting a workout at the airport

There are many ways to avoid jet lag, from setting your watch to the destination time before you leave, giving you time to adjust healthy eating prior to  your trip, avoid alcohol during the trip.  I think the best way is exercise.  If you get your heart beating you can beat jet lag.  Here is an article focused on the subject:

It’s far too easy to become a slug when you’re on the road. But staying active offers business travelers an edge: the benefits of working out while traveling include stress reduction and an increased ability to combat jet lag.

Travelers passing through Canada’s largest airport, Toronto Pearson International, now have an extra advantage: an airport health club.

GoodLife Fitness, which has over 300 locations across Canada, has opened a branch in the Terminal 1 Arrivals area (presecurity), offering a 10,000-square-foot workout area, changing rooms with showers, towel service and luggage storage. No workout clothing? No excuse: Workout clothing and sneakers are available for rent. A daily pass is CND $15, or US $14.58. Hours: 4:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.

“From personal experience I know what a tremendous difference it makes to my travel experience when I workout before I get on the plane, as well as my productivity and alertness when I land,” GoodLife founder and CEO David “Patch” Patchell-Evans said in a statement. “We want to make it easier for all travelers, coming in and out of Toronto Pearson, to be able to experience the same great benefits as I have.”
