Bell Works Chicagoland Unveils Onsite Health and Wellness Facility 

Bell Works Chicagoland, the former AT&T corporate campus in Hoffman Estates transformed into a “metroburb” by Somerset Development, has opened FitLab. Operated by Kinema Fitness, the 31,680-square-foot health and wellness facility offers a holistic wellness experience for tenants, guests and the greater community, including personal training, health coaching, nutrition consultation, state-of-the-art equipment and a broad range of group fitness classes. 

“The opening of FitLab marks yet another important milestone in the transformation of Bell Works Chicagoland,” said Somerset Development president Ralph Zucker. ”As employees’ expectations from the workplace continue to shift, we’re placing an even greater emphasis on health and well-being.” 

He continued, “As the metroburb continues to take shape, we’re providing an environment – emblematic of a vibrant downtown – that enhances work life balance. This expansive, thoughtfully designed space provides the ability to bring people together and inspire more activity, which are the greatest assets to our growing Bell Works community.”
