    Looking to kill time while waiting for your flight? Instead of lounging around, travelers can now opt for a free workout.

    Philadelphia National Airport is one of the first in the nation to combine air travel with exercise by providing its travelers with free exercise bikes. The airport has partnered with Rich Hebert of Smooth Fitness and Health to give travelers the option of working out before and between flights.

    The goal is to help people get active. The fitness equipment is a part of the airport's summer-long customer appreciation program. It has been so popular that 20 more bikes are being added.

    "It’d be nice to have one of these hanging out at every gate-get a good stretch in” said traveler Cindi Baird.

    The bikes are set up in the concourse between B and C terminals.

    There is also a pop-up gym that moves throughout the airport day by day.

    If the exercise bikes continue to be a success, the airport may make it a year-round addition.
