Sometimes spas get flack for not focusing on fitness. Not these.
Spa Chakra at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago is giving away a complimentary 30-day membership to the hotels 10,000-square-foot fitness center with the purchase of any hour-long spa treatment (through October 31, 2010). Its a great deal for Windy City residents, particularly because the fitness center has an indoor swimming pool and regular yoga, Pilates, and cardio classes.
The Grand Del Mar in San Diego offers fitness classes from Zumba to Spinning and Pi-Yo (a Pilates-and-yoga class) to resort guests and those just popping in for a day for the $385 Grand Day Spa Retreat. The summer package also comes with a 60-minute Swedish massage, a 60-minute Portrait facial customized to your skin type, and a poolside lunch, including taxes, gratuities, and valet parking.
Exhale Spas, located in New York, Boston, Dallas, and a handful of other U.S. cities, offer a week of unlimited core and yoga classes for just $40 (offered through December 31, 2010) a fantastic deal considering just one super-popular Core Fusion class can about cost half that. During that same week, you also get 20 percent off select spa therapies. A great pairing.
