“As more and more seek out nature-driven wellness experiences, our ancient natural thermal hot springs are one of Arizona’s most mesmeric hidden gems that have been naturally forged into the land over 13,000 years, and feature rich minerals known to remedy aches and pains, improve mobility and boost skin health,” says Kevin Maguire, general manager of Castle Hot Springs. “It’s the perfect way to rest, recharge and relax while soaking in one of our three geothermal pools ranging from 86 to 96 degrees in one of the most remote and beautiful locations in Arizona.” Guests staying in the Spring Bungalows can also enjoy private soaking tubs filled with the relaxing thermal water. Beyond indulging in the hot springs, wellness lovers can also recharge and renew through a selection of activities, including meditation, yoga, tai chi and qi gong. “Most, if not all, of our guests choose to soak in the thermal springs as much as possible, and always tell us how relaxed and rejuvenated they feel after a blissfully therapeutic soak,” he notes. “It’s a perfect wellness destination to step away and unwind from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.” 5050 N.

“At the end of the day, we are human, and we all want some type of connection. For many, that is found at Life Time,” says Devon Belanger, group fitness five-star elite instructor at Life Time Biltmore. From personal training and sports broadcasting to modeling and now instructing, Belanger’s energy and passion embody Life Time’s Ringside class—an authentic boxing and conditioning experience. “There is something about the 5:15AM Ringside class,” she says. “Maybe it’s the frustrations of COVID-19, but these members just show up as if they need to get it out of their system.” This no-contact class uses weighted knuckles that are equal to the weight of boxing gloves. “The class moves quickly and people don’t realize how fast it goes by,” says Belanger. “It brings out that fighter that is in [each of us] and is a natural release of endorphins.” Start your day like a champ in-club or online. 2580 E.
