The necessity of consistent travel of the greatest challenges that today's working population faces as business becomes increasingly global. And staying healthy while traveling can be tricky.

Companies might make staying healthy easier for their employees by simply providing resources to make better decisions while traveling, including lists of restaurants in major cities and airports where healthier eating options are available to subsidizing exercise classes while traveling on business or promoting participation in a program like the Westin Workout (, where travelers can borrow workout gear for $5 and avoid having to pack sneakers and spandex in their carry-ons.
