Maintaining Mind+Body+ Soul while in the Windy City

Staying healthy while traveling is possible. Sometimes, though, even the best intentions to workout don’t come to fruition.
In planning for your Lucy Hobbs Project Celebration trip to Chicago this fall, take at look at the fitness center at The Blackstone as well as other outdoor areas where you can enjoy what Chicago has to offer while making your wellness intentions a reality.

The Blackstone offers a 24-hour fitness center for guests.

The Blackstone, an iconic downtown Chicago hotel where the 7th annual Celebration of Women in Dentistry with the theme Mind+Body+Soul will take place Oct. 3-5 ( Register today ! ), offers a fitness center (shown above) open 24 hours a day. No matter your schedule is, the fitness center fully-equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, and free weights accommodates.

“The expansive space, large number of equipment options, sweeping park/lake views, and graffiti walls provide an enjoyable and inspiring workout experience to our guests. Also, the graffiti walls are decorated with motivational quotes from sports legends and array of iconic Chicago sports team memorabilia.”

Clare Saviski, Marketing Director at The Blackstone.
