Meetings' guests can now go right from their seats, even in a General Session, into a workout while experiencing meetings enhancements, such as meditation and posture exercises, at the landmark, luxury hotel, as well as private wellness classes, like a scenic run/walk in downtown Chicago to an educational healthy eating class. Meetings are no longer just typical facts and figures presentations at JW Marriott Chicago with these new wellness components.
In keeping with the JW Marriott brand's commitment to offering enriching guest experiences that help guests maintain balance while traveling, the new program includes three breakout “meeting enhancements” for groups of up to 200 guests as well as three longer-format fitness classes led by the spa's Nike-certified personal trainers.
“At JW Marriott Chicago, we pride ourselves in always creating new and innovative offerings for our meeting planners and guests,” says Director of Sales & Marketing Steve Conklin. “Well-being is one of the JW Marriott brand's three core passion points and with ‘Fit Meetings', we're able to further explore JW Marriott Chicago's dedication in bringing a complete wellness experience to our meetings and events guests.”
Spa at JW Chicago's ‘Fit Meetings' offerings include:
Meeting Enhancement for Well-Being:
Prepare the body and mind with intention, greater focus, creativity and better relationships with a brief guided meditation session.
Good posture is good health. Pilates-based strength training movements, focusing on the core and back muscles, create an aligned and strong posture. In this 15-minute session, guests will learn to incorporate these exercises into their everyday routine.
Attendees will stay engaged and energized with this yoga-based stretch session suitable for all fitness levels.
Private Wellness Classes:
TAKE THE SCENIC ROUTE
Guests can start their morning off on the right foot. All fitness levels are welcome to come and join JW Marriott Chicago's fitness team on a scenic run for an up close view of Chicago's picturesque skyline, miles of sandy beaches and some of the finest downtown architecture in the world. Not a runner? Meeting planners can opt for a group walk instead! Available for groups of up to 30 guests.
