Aloha friends! 🌺 My heart is reaching out to my favorite island of Maui as the people and wildlife there deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Lane! Our family recently visited the beautiful island and had a remarkable time – it’s truly one of the most wonderful […]
Baltimore Print Studios is an amazing hidden treasure here in Charm City. A few years ago, we did a screen printing workshop and I’ve been in love ever since. Kyle and Kim, the owners and adorably artsy married couple, are some of the kindest, most talented people I’ve met – so when they have new workshops and fun things planned, we try to join! Such was the case for this week’s Wrapping Paper & Gift Tag Workshop!
This week, we went to try our hand at printing our own papers and tags for the holidays. We used the traditional screen printing process for the papers and a press we haven’t used before for the tags. So fun!
I highly recommend Baltimore Print Studios for their fun workshops, but also for their beautiful art. Basically monthly they host screen printing and letterpress workshops. You don’t have to be experienced to join – they are really helpful for all skill levels! They don’t have January’s workshops posted just yet but if you join their mailing list, you’ll get first notification about the dates!
And if you’re still looking for a fun gift for someone, definitely check out their online shop – we love their style & prints! We even have one framed up in our home 🙂
Last month, I was thrilled to get a special preview of the new ROAM Fitness center, located inside BWI Airport. Inside the airport you say? YES. It’s the first gym located behind security at any US airport and it’s right here in the Baltimore area! It was so cool to see…
Located after the D/E security checkpoints, ROAM is a small fitness area for those travelers who don’t want to spend their layovers wasting away checking their phones . They have fitness equipment, showers, workouts gear (for rent and for sale), affordable healthy snacks (including our own local, lady-boss owned Gundalow Juice!) & more – perfect for your full workout needs or a quick visit on the way to your flight!
The gym itself has seven pieces of cardio equipment, free weights up to 50 lbs, functional equipment including one TRX strap, mats, exercise balls, foam rollers and more. The lockers are pretty sizable and have outlets in them – so you can charge your phone/laptop/whatever while you workout (WHY DON’T MORE PLACES DO THIS!?). And don’t worry, there are two big flight display boards posted – so you won’t forget your flight!
They have four showers (ADA accessible) available but you must sign up for a shower time. The ROAM team said it was easiest to sign up for a time as you check in for your workout! They also have amenities for you to use including hair care, deodorant, razors, and an Amazon Dot in each shower area (use for music and a timer to get you out on time)! They’ve partnered with MALIN + GOETZ for some beautiful smelling soaps too!
Forgot your workout gear? NO PROBLEM. They can rent you a whole workout outfit, including sneakers! (See the photo below for an example of the womens’ workout outfit you can rent). They have Lululemon apparel to rent (or buy of course). Shorts and t-shirts are available for men. Sports bras, tanks, t-shirts, shorts and cropped pants are available for women. They’ve partnered with Brooks for the sneakers so you can try the Adrenaline GTS 17 – Men’s sizes: 9, 9.5, 10, 10.5, 11, 11.5, 12, 13, 14 and Women’s sizes: 6, 6.5, 7, 7.5, 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10, 11.
I know what you’re thinking…Sure, this all sounds great. But how much does it cost? ONLY $25! Yep. That’s right, less than many drop-in rates for gyms! If you’re a true travel warrior and travel A LOT through BWI, they also have 3 or 5-day passes AND monthly/annual passes. I also asked if they were opening more facilities and they said yes! They’re working on leases and locations now and hope to add five or more locations over the next two years!
So, if you’re flying through BWI and need a quick stretch or full workout, stop on by ROAM Fitness!
