Bell Works Chicagoland, the former AT&T corporate campus and Chicagoland’s first ‘metroburb’ – a self-contained metropolis in suburbia — celebrated the opening of FitLab. Operated by Kinema Fitness, the new health and wellness facility offers a holistic wellness experience for tenants, guests and the greater community, including personal training, health coaching, nutrition consultation and a broad range of group fitness classes.
The new FitLab offers comprehensive wellness programming and fitness courses that are available both within the facility and externally at tenant spaces. Spread across 31,680 square feet, FitLab features a variety of fitness classes, workshops and assessments, nutrition consultations and health coaching sessions, and recovery-focused offerings such as private meditation and reiki sessions. In addition to group classes and programming, the facility offers:
- Precor Fitness Equipment
- Cardio touch screens with streaming applications
- Queenax Functional Rig System
- Indoor Running Track
- Full-service locker rooms with complimentary towel service
- Multi-purpose studio room with cycling classes
- Meditation room
- TRX Bay units and circuit training
- Jacobs Ladder cardio machines
Designed by Bell Works Creative Director Paola Zamudio and her team at NPZ Style+Decor, FitLab features an urban boutique fitness facility atmosphere, with a human-centric design fabric woven throughout the space. The bold color palette is complemented by biophilic elements interspersed throughout the facility, creating an environment that increases members’ feeling of well-being.
Somerset is transforming the vacant former AT&T corporate campus into Chicagoland’s first ‘metroburb’ – a self-contained metropolis in suburbia. The company continues to build on the success of the first Bell Works concept in Holmdel, New Jersey, where it has transformed a two-million-square-foot former Bell Labs headquarters into an ecosystem of offices, shops, dining, event space, hospitality and community resources.
Somerset recently celebrated the grand opening of coLab at Bell Works Chicagoland, the official coworking membership experience at the property. Bell Works also welcomed Platinum Home Mortgage Corporation — the metroburb’s first long-term lease — which joins a growing list of office tenants including CPA Advisors Group, a boutique full-service accounting firm; Mosquito Hunters, residential and commercial mosquito control services; and The Next Unicorn, an equity crowdfunding firm.
The metroburb additionally features 60,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space, which will provide both members and visitors alike with a mix of dining and entertainment options. FitLab joins an outpost of local Chicago favorite Fairgrounds Craft Coffee and Tea, which opened earlier this year.
