We’ve been exploring new gyms around town and were surprised to learn that downtown’s Wel at Humana is, well, not just for Humana. The gym and fitness center at 522 W. Main St. is open to the public, and it boasts features you can’t find anywhere else.
💪 Weightlifting and cardio equipment
The space’s main floor is chock full of dumbbells, kettlebells, treadmills, and elliptical machines. There’s even a Queenax, a functional and suspended body weight training system that’s used to improve endurance, strength, and core stability.
🧼 Spa-like amenities
In addition to a spin room, Wel’s bottom floor is home to saunas, a recovery room, and spacious locker rooms filled with just about anything a member might need to wrap up their workout and get on with their day — including hairspray, deodorant, dry shampoo, and hair ties. The lower level also features a meditation space with a technology-enabled meditation pod called a Somadome.
The grab-and-go station offers drinks and energy bars, complete with recommendations based on the intensity and duration of your workout. And for those that find tons of unfamiliar equipment intimidating, Wel at Humana also provides personal training, as well as group classes like yoga, barre, and hip-hop step.
Community memberships are $45 per month, and complimentary day passes are available for anyone who wants to dip their toes into the Wel.
