Stats: 40% of Business Travelers Stick to Fitness Routines

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 data released by Carlson Wagonlit Travel, most business travelers are not adhering to their health and wellness regimens during business trips.

The data shows that:

  • Only 40 percent try to stick to their fitness routines when on the road
  • 54 percent acknowledge that their exercise and wellness routines are usually disrupted by travel
  • The data varies based on geography:
    • 84 percent of Asia Pacific business travelers are in control of their routines when traveling
    • 76 percent of Americas business travelers are in control of their routines when traveling
    • 73 percent of European business travelers are in control of their routines when traveling

The amount of rest business travelers get on the road varies by geography as well. Asia Pacific business travelers lead the way, with 47 percent of them getting as much rest as possible while on business trips. By contrast, 36 percent of Americas and 35 percent of European business travelers get as much rest as possible while on business trips.
