In addition to pampering massages, facials and body treatments, Scottsdale’s resorts and spas also offer out-of-the-box activities to help you stay fit on the road.

Fire Up Your Metabolism

Join Lobo Fitness at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale’s Spa Avania for a challenging workout that combines resistance training, kinesis-based movements, plyometrics and isolation of major muscle groups. You'll detoxify your body, build muscle and burn off those calories!
