Earlier this month I was lucky enough to get away for the weekend with some girlfriends to The American Club in Kohler, Wisconsin. It’s just a short 3-hour drive from Chicago, so we woke up early one morning and headed out for a fun road trip. As guilty as I felt leaving the kids, I knew it was something that I needed to do for my well-being. As a mom, I find myself feeling guilty before trips sometimes. I always remind myself that when I come back home I feel renewed and relaxed and ready to be a better mom.
The rooms at The American Club were spacious and beautiful. There was a huge, bathroom with all Kohler fixtures and a huge soaking tub in the middle of the room. Talk about a mama’s dream room! I had so much fun eating healthy food and relaxing.
Here is a list of activities that you must try when you visit:
Kohler is known for it’s Spa. We spent an amazing afternoon at the beautiful water spa at Kohler. The baths and the lounge areas are so nice and I could honestly spend an entire day there without even getting a treatment. I had an amazing Himalayan Salt Stone massage and reflexology treatment. The salt stone massage has so many benefits including, increase blood circulation and reduced inflammation. Reflexology is one of my favorite treatments. I find it so relaxing and because you spend the entire treatment on your back it’s so easy to fall and stay asleep.
Our hostess, Carla Jian taught at 8 am hot yoga class at their beautiful studio on the lake. Waking up early to work out is not my favorite thing to do but I felt so good after her class. Her energy was infectious and the studio was perfect. Not to mention her kick-ass playlist!
Bold Cycle kicked our butts. I felt like I got a killer workout and the best part was the awesome shop they had inside the store. Good thing I had a hard time standing and was so tired because I could have done some major retail damage in there!
This activity I was a little bit nervous about. I can honestly say there was no part of me that wanted to shoot a gun but the instructor convinced me to try and it and I’m so glad I did! I felt oddly empowered after doing it a couple times. It’s definitely not something I will do often but I am very glad I tried it.
By far the best part of the trip was just being with my girlfriends at dinner and hanging out with everyone in our hotel rooms. I’m so glad I gave myself permission to enjoy this time alone without all the unnecessary mom guilt. I had some much fun at The American Club and hope to be back very soon!
