The statistics are conclusive. Travelers require programmes specifically designed for their health and fitness needs on the road:
• 25% of business travelers experience physical stress while flying
• 40% of business travelers skip breakfast
• Lack of sleep has led 23% of travelers to fall asleep in a meeting and 14% to miss a meeting or a flight.
