Chicago hotels are inviting meeting attendees to bust a move with new fitness programs that really stretch the limits of breakout sessions.
JW Marriott Chicago recently launched the “Fit Meetings” program, exclusively tailored to meeting participants. It offers a choice of three breakout enhancements that focus on meditation, posture and boosting energy or three longer-format fitness classes led by the spa’s Nike-certified personal trainers. Groups of up to 200 are welcome.
InterContinental Chicago is overcoming that afternoon slump with more mindful exercises. The new “Get Centered” program is through a partnership with CorePower Yoga and allows guests a complimentary week pass to a nearby studio as well as a mat to use throughout the stay.
As part of its new Signature Event offerings, Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park begins the day with a Morning Bike Tour. Guests are able to rent a set of wheels and then bike along the lakefront at their own pace. Upon returning, bottled water, a chilled towel and a healthy menu of fresh juices and seed mixes will be waiting.
