Spa & Fitness Programs At Miami?s Eden Roc Designed For Complete Wellness

MIAMI BEACH, FL? The Eden Roc Resort & Spa?s new Lifestyles Wellness Center features spa and fitness programs to help promote overall wellness. ?We offer more than the standard programs that will help you develop a better level of emotional, psychological or physical wellness,? said Ellen Latham, spa director for the property. She explained that in addition to exercise classes and spa services, programs related to financial, relationship or motivational matters promote mental well being. The wellness center contracts with local behavioral therapists to make them available to guests on an appointment-only basis. Although there is a broader appeal for women to use these services, Latham said she hopes to ?break the spa stereotype by offering a menu of services that will allow men to feel comfortable.? The Salon at Eden Roc offers hair, skin care and nail services, waxing and make-up application. Individual spa services such as massages, body treatments and spa packages are also available. For sports enthusiasts, there is rock climbing, basketball, racquetball and squash. The Eden Roc features 43 Cybex weight machines, two ab rollers and free weights. Floor trainers are available for instruction and assistance in helping guests doing heavy lifting or those using weights for the first time. Fitness classes are offered including aerobics, body sculpting, yoga, boxing and body rolling. Some are at an introductory level while others take a multi-level approach where individuals work at their own pace under the watchful eyes of instructors. The fitness instructors don?t allow an overloaded class, according to Latham. Most have 15 to 25 people to ensure a good, quality workout. Fitness and spa staff hiring is overseen by Latham who works with Eden Roc management team to ?select the best, certified instructors possible.?
