Flying is a profession that requires both brain work and physical fitness. It is fairly common for those who work on flight crews to be fitness-minded and talk fitness on flights. Flight attendants and pilots are often training for triathlons or other fitness-related events. They bring bikes in bike cases and they ride on layovers. On flights to destination locations like Hawaii or Azores Islands they swim in the ocean. The benefits of excercise extend beyond physical benefits. It can ease stress levels and increase feelings of relaxation and well-being. For many pilots staying fit on the fly is all about the small choices they makes each day. Between early morning flights, limited food choices, and hotel rooms far from home, pilots are intentional about the choices they make to stay active and eat healthy.
