The Spa at Trump Offers New Fitness Program

The Spa at Trump at Trump International Hotel & Tower (Chicago) is offering a fitness program inspired by the recent opening of the River Walk at Trump International. The new fitness classes, including Summer Awakening Yoga and Summer Walking Club, utilize the River Walk’s setting adjacent to the Magnificent Mile. Guests can exercise while enjoying the serene atmosphere and beautiful views of the river and surrounding area. “The opening of the River Walk motivated us to implement challenging alternatives during the summer months,” says assistant spa director Amy Mashlykin. “Our trainers designed these classes specifically to celebrate the beauty of the space along the Chicago River while providing guests with fitness-oriented socializing opportunities.”

Signing Off: Cancer

“Cancer (June 22-July 22) is one of the most emotional and feeling-generated signs of the zodiac, even if it’s sometimes hard to recognize, given the protective shell that they don. Their sensitive and maternal nature makes those in their presence feel cared for and nurtured. What they offer others is also what they seek—a sense of deep-rooted comfort and connectedness. A water sign, Cancerians find this elixir to be very healing.”—Stephanie Gailing
