The gym at The Peninsula Chicago is filled with sunlight, thanks to its prime corner location. We can’t think of a better motivator than a view of Lake Michigan as you work up a sweat on one of the six treadmills. There are also plenty of other cardio machines, pretty much guaranteeing that you won’t have to wait to get your heart rate going. And if you’re into throwing around dumbbells and free weights, an abundance of weight training equipment is waiting for you — we’re talking machines for just about every muscle you can think of, and then some.
The certified personal trainers at the luxury Chicago hotel can give you a run for your money if you need that extra push to get yourself to the gym. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel also offers more than 30 classes per week, none of which will cost you a thing extra. Private lockers along one wall prevent you from having to worry about keeping track of your room key while you work out, and you’ll find bottled water, both chilled and at room temperature, towels and headphones nearby to give you everything you need to stay efficient during your workout. The Peninsula Chicago’s gym might not quite be a health club — but it sure is close.
The Peninsula’s gym offers state-of-the-art fitness equipment, personal training, a variety of daily fitness classes, and a picturesque 82-foot heated indoor pool with 20-foot floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Lake Michigan and the Magnificent Mile.
