The legendary spa destination Miraval celebrated its 20-year anniversary with a modern makeover. The guest rooms have received a plush upgrade, but the most impressive addition is the new fitness center and sport programming. While the Arizona resort still retains its core of spiritual wellness offerings, the new focus on fitness fulfills a guest need. Group classes, such as the morning abs and glutes workshop, take place in the center’s glass-walled studio with views of saguaros and ocotillos in the surrounding Sonoran desert. The resort added a Pilates studio for one-on-one lessons with fitness supervisor Pam Trudeau, who is versed in both classic and Ron Fletcher methods. Other offerings of note include a floating meditation class, where participants peacefully reflect in aerial yoga silks suspended from the ceiling, and a noninvasive, high-tech metabolic rate analysis that is followed by a consultation with one of the resort’s nutritionists. Private training sessions are also available. »miravalresorts.com
