Though the waves on Lake Michigan may not be high enough to hang ten this summer, The Langham, Chicago  encourages hotel guests and locals alike to unleash their inner surfer with a surf workout starting in July. Using SurfSet Fitness technology as initially debuted on ABC’s Shark Tank, The Langham, Chicago will offer SurfSet Core Essentials Classes through Chuan Spa & Health Club this July and August on The Langham, Chicago’s street-level outdoor patio.

The Langham, Chicago is the first hotel in in the city to offer surf machines as an amenity, and  to invite participants to partake in SurfSet classes along the scenic Chicago River. The SurfSet classes provide the ultimate summer workout, mimicking the core exercises of catching ocean waves.

Chuan Spa & Health Club

The Chuan Spa values are based upon the principles of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), yin and yang, the meridian system (jing luo) and the five elements (wu xing – wood, fire, earth,  metal and water,) all of which place a strong emphasis on rebalancing the elements and providing a journey into wellness. Chuan Spa has exclusively developed over 20 signature treatments with the guidance of the in-house TCM doctor to ensure the highest levels of authenticity and conceptual integrity. To compliment these services, a comprehensive Chuan branded retail and professional spa product range was created, which included the 5 Element Massage Oils and Essential Oils. As the spa brand of Langham Hospitality Group, the first Chuan Spa was opened in 2005 at Langham Place, Hong Kong; other locations around the world include The Langham hotels in Auckland, Boston, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Ningbo, Shanghai and Shenzhen.  For more information, visit
