Best Miami Workouts

Maria Tettamanti

Tired of the same ol’ same ol’ workout routine? It’s time to give Flywheel a spin (pun intended) or how about some sweaty, steamy and sexy dance moves via The Vixen Workout? Yes, we here at Miami.com are keen on helping you achieve a fit, balanced and happy lifestyle. So without further ado, we’d like to share Miami’s top workouts — we’ve got you covered from head to toe (literally):

Barre Motion: Looking for a firmer, lifted backside? Elongated, toned thighs? A stronger core? Then head to the barre. Barre Motion, that is. Inspired by the artistic athleticism of ballet, punctuated by the mindfulness of yoga and Pilates, Barre Motion yields results beginning in as little as one week. $30 per class, 1560 Lenox Ave., Miami Beach; (305) 534-8087; barremotionmiami.com

Barry’s Bootcamp: If it's good enough for Kim Kardashian, Carrie Underwood, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake, Katie Holmes, Jessica Alba, Katie Couric and Juliette Lewis — well, it's good enough for us. This indoor bootcamp-style class can deliver up to an incredible 1,000-calorie-burn per hour workout. $30 per class, 1835 Purdy Ave., Miami Beach; (786) 888-1699; barrysbootcamp.com

Fight Club Miami: If the lack of air conditioning alone here doesn’t make you bust a sweat, well, the one-hour boxing and cardio training will do the trick. The Boxing Explosion class will have you channeling your inner Muhammad Ali. This class combines basic boxing fundamentals, plyometrics and high intensity interval training to boost your heart rate and burn hundreds of calories. A total knockout. $20 per class, 120 NE 20 Street, Miami; (305) 573-7400; fightclubamerica.com

Flywheel Sports: Touted for their trademark indoor stadium-seating cycling classes, Flywheel remains South Florida’s top spinning class facility. Once riders are seated in the arena-like classroom, the lights are switched off, the music is blasted and a peppy instructor leads the way. There’s even arm weights segment during each class and flat screens to track one’s performance (brilliant for competitive types). $25 per class and first-timers ride free, 1919 Purdy Ave, Miami Beach; (305) 763-8227; flywheelsports.com

Green Monkey: Say “Namaste” to yoga. Strengthen both your body and mind by getting Downward Dog. Yogis here get flexy to a spate of yoga practices such as Vinyasa flow, power yoga and Jivamukti-inpired classes. Om-mazing. $20 per class, 1827 Purdy Avenue, Miami Beach; (305) 397-8566; greenmonkey.com

Paddleboarding with TKS: Want to know what it feels like to walk on water? Here’s your chance. Paddleboarding offers an amazing workout — with an emphasis on arms and core — while living the life aquatic. Stand up on a paddleboard, row to your heart’s content and soak in Miami’s stellar bayside views. $40 per lesson, The Standard Spa Miami Beach, 40 Island Ave, Miami Beach; (305) 704-3945

The Pilates Place: For long and lean muscles, Pilates is the answer. Pilates exercise focuses on posture, stretching muscles and it’s gentle yet effective in terms of losing inches. In fact, clients can expect lean, defined muscles — and won’t bulk up. Hello, ballerina bod. $24 and up per class, 5400 N.E. 4th Court, Miami; thepilatesplacestudios.com

The Vixen Workout: So you think you can dance? Janet Jones, a professional dancer with classical ballet training and former Miami Heat dancer, created The Vixen Workout, a female-only fitness class, to give women who are juggling the work-life balance the opportunity to cut loose in a club-like atmosphere without the fear of being judged for droppin’ it low on the dance floor. $15 per class, Body & Soul Gym, 3181 SW 38 Court, Miami; vixenworkout.com
