Cold temperatures and snowy conditions in the winter months can make it hard to stay active. Fortunately, Schaumburg has several park facilities, gyms and other businesses for residents and visitors to keep moving throughout the colder months.
Indoor Lap Swim and Water Park
Schaumburg’s indoor waterpark, The Water Works is located at 505 N. Springinsguth Rd. inside the Community Recreation Center and is open to the public. The pool features multiple water slides, a water-spraying playground, lap pool, and diving boards so there’s plenty of room to wade or swim about. For those trying to get a workout, lap swim hours are available daily. Check out fees, swim hours, and special events on their website.
Practice Your Swing
When the weather makes hitting the links impossible, plan a visit to Schaumburg’s Topgolf at 2050 Progress Pkwy., or the recently opened X-Golf at 1100 American Ln. Topgolf’s energetic atmosphere creates the perfect night out with several golf game options, good and drinks. If you’re looking to practice your game, X-Golf offers lessons with PGA professionals, golf course simulators, and tournaments for those with a competitive edge. Both facilities give golf enthusiasts an opportunity to practice their swing year-round, even when there’s snow on the ground!
Join A Gym or Fitness Class
Many people experience a lack of motivation to work out when temperatures drop and a movie marathon is the more appealing option. Joining a gym or fitness class can provide the support and accountability needed to stay motivated and on track. There are many options in Schaumburg, including Orangetheory Fitness, F45 Training, Club Pilates, LadyStrong Fitness, Jazzercise, Tribalance Yoga, Title Boxing Club, Push Fitness, and several others.
Throw Axes with Friends
Get an arm workout and have fun with friends while throwing axes at BullsEye Axe Lounge located at 601 N. Martingale Rd. Visitors can book a target for up to two hours of axe throwing or spend time smashing old electronics in the RagingBull Rage Room. Call it exercise or call it stress relief – either way it’s a whole lot of fun! Book your visit on their website.
Discover Yu Kids Island
Neither rain nor snow can stop the fun at Yu Kids Island located inside Woodfield Mall! Yu Kids Island is made for toddlers and parents to burn some energy and break up a day of shopping. The indoor Japanese playground features ten attractions for kids to discover and play. Admission includes unlimited all-day access to the playground, which means parents can’t say no when the kids ask to go back! Visit their website for more information.
Become A Woodfield Mall Walker
Do you miss walking outside now that the temperature has dropped? Don’t feel like you need to give up your healthy habits when Woodfield Mall offers the perfect course to stay on track. Walkers can walk approximately 2.2 miles across the upper and lower levels of the mall while finding a sense of community with other patrons. To allow for additional walking time, mall entrances open two hours prior to stores opening. Once you complete your workout, reward yourself with a purchase at one of the mall’s 300 stores.
