You won’t have to miss a workout with all of the weight-training equipment at The Peninsula Chicago’s gym. You can get through an entire circuit and then some at this gym, which also boasts an amazing view. The Peninsula’s fitness center overlooks Michigan Avenue and Lake Michigan. Whether you're motivated to fit into that outfit you spotted across the street at Neiman Marcus, or your goal is to get the beach body you’ve been waiting for to swim in the lake, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s gym calls.
The Cybex weight-training equipment provides you with top-notch machines to build your muscles. Start off with the good-old leg press to get a burn in your quads. Follow that up with a seated leg curl for the hamstrings. If you feel the need for some squats, head to the Smith press.
After your leg circuit, move on to your upper body with the linear chest press and the lat pull-down. The arm curl will get a good burn going in your biceps, while the cable crossover will work your triceps. There are also free weights that are available in various increments up to 65 pounds. This Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel's gym will have you sweating in no time.
