The gym at The Peninsula Chicago has enough cardio equipment that you likely won’t ever have to wait for a machine; six Life Fitness treadmills are calling your name for a good jog, even when it is too cold outside. If you’re looking for a low-impact cardio machine, five Life Fitness cross-trainers and a Nordic Track Incline Trainer can suit your needs.
As far as bikes go, you can enjoy all the benefits of a ride along Lake Michigan without stepping foot (or pedaling, for that matter) outside. The three Star Trac Upright Cycles and one Cybex Recumbent cycle offer the comfort of the indoors — not to mention the gym’s great view of Lake Michigan.
Rather than taking the stairs up the neighboring John Hancock Tower, you can get your stair climbing in on one of the two Cybex Steppers inside the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. Whether you’re a runner or just looking to get in a good cardio session during your stay at The Peninsula Chicago, you can take advantage of the whole swath of cardio equipment in the luxury hotel’s gym.
The Peninsula Chicago’s Fitness Centre offers ultra-modern Life Fitness and Cybex equipment, complete with personal televisions and headphones.
