Gyms can often feel like warehouses full of stale, unpleasant smells and intimidating ruffians, making setting foot inside one feel as perilous as ordering a pink appletini at a particularly raucous Old West saloon. Spa Chakra spares guests the anxiety of a new gym without sparing them the benefits. Inside the luxurious atmosphere of a swanky, historic hotel, members can enjoy three interconnected levels of fitness space with banks of conditioning and strength-training equipment, group classrooms, lavish locker rooms, indulgent amenities, and more. Spa Chakra’s indoor swimming pool offers mid-winter water babies a chance to cool off after a jaunt on the elliptical or slim down in an Aqua Fit class. Spa Chakra’s friendly instructors will help keep you motivated as you breathe through Pilates postures and tone your forearm muscles in preparation for clam-shucking season. For current class dates and times, call Spa Chakra.

The aestheticians at Pamper Me Services help clients look and feel their best with treatments for the face, toes, and just about everything in between. Table lamps splash warm lighting across the spa’s walls, illuminating paintings that calm clients’ nerves even before they reach their private treatment rooms.
