Fitness Fanatical Airlines
I previously reported that Jet
Blue had established itself as the fitness leader of airlines with
its in-flight yoga exercises.
They've taken it a step further with new Pilates in-flight exercises. Both
mini-workouts are described on cards kept in that trusty seat-back
pocket. For those of you traveling on other airlines, you can download
the exercises in PDF format from
Jet Blue's web site.
Modeled after Jet Blue, Delta's Song
airlines has followed suit with an in-flight
exercise kit. Selling for $8, the kit includes an exercise ball (think baseball-sized), resistance band, and instruction booklet.
The kits should be on-board this month, with an in-flight video due out
in the fall.
The Song exercise kit was featured in last week's US
News and World Report, and on a more humorous note, was modeled by
a woman wearing the highest stiletto boots that I've ever seen on an
airplane... or anywhere else. The workout she'll get teeter-tottering
through the Atlanta airport will be enough to negate the need for the
kit! Even the US News editors got a kick out of her attire.
