Working out can be a chore, but the amenities in the gym at Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago make it more bearable. The Technogym cardio machines are equipped with personal TVs so you can watch your favorite talk show or sitcom while you raise your heart rate. Or just stare out at the cityscape from the 12-foot-tall windows, since every cardio machine faces the river and city. A snack station is set up with green apples and refreshing cucumber water, and iced towels are scattered about when you need to cool off. The locker room provides white waffle robes for you to use pre- or post- workout, as well as hairdryers, combs, Bumble and bumble styling lotion and J Beverly Hills hairspray and gel. If you need to relax after an intense weight-lifting session, hop in the eucalyptus steam shower or try the great deluge showers, where you can program the light, color, music and temperature and even choose a massage therapy option.
There’s a weight room in the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel's 14th-floor gym — we saw visiting players from the Portland Trail Blazers training in there. Two studios host a number of fitness classes, like TRX suspension, a workout invented by the Navy SEALs. And there are more standard classes, like yoga, Pilates, spinning, fit circuit, strength and conditioning, core focus and flexibility. Water-based classes are offered in the adjacent pool. But you’ll have to pay extra for the group classes. The 60-minute sessions cost $30 and 90-minute classes go for $45. Members of The Spa at Trump Health Club get them for free.
The amenities at the Health Club at Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago put the perfect finishing touch on any workout. Throughout the spa area guests will find water stations. These stations are frequently refreshed to keep the water cold and refreshing. Often fruits are added to the water to give it a slightly refreshing taste- often these include oranges, pineapples, cucumbers or strawberries. This fruit-infused water is a Health Club signature. At these same stations, spa-goers will find fresh apples and dried nuts to reenergize them during a workout. Guests will always find a fresh towel, iced to cool you off.
Throughout the gym are large, flat-screen televisions for communal use. In addition to these, however, there are personal televisions on every piece of cardio equipment. Guests will find baskets of complimentary, disposable headphones that they can use either for their own iPod or to connect to the television in front of them. Beyond these standard amenities, the Spa at Trump is happy to accommodate any special requests or arrange for any additional requirements.
