As the official start of summer nears, there is no better time to shake up your workout routine. We’ve rounded up six Miami fitness studios that are bringing the heat with breakthrough concepts that will get you prepped for the beach in no time.
Offering 40-minute workouts that start every 10 minutes, Sweat440 is the ideal spot for anyone with a tight schedule. Created by seasoned professional trainers Matthew Miller and Cody Patrick, the classes combine cross training, strength training and HIIT (high-intensity interval training). According to Patrick, the Miami Beach studio has “bridged the gap between personal training and group fitness by having multiple trainers on the floor monitoring the class and making sure everyone's technique is safe and effective.” 1916 Bay Rd., Miami Beach, 919-225-7811
Since its South Florida debut in April, Rise Nation has amassed a following that’s almost cult-like; in fact, the 33-person classes at the Design District Studio are often sold out, so it’s best to book ahead. Why all the hype? This celebrity-touted workout is unlike anything in the Magic City. During the 30-minute sessions, guests utilize VersaClimbers, allowing for a work out that is time-efficient, yet burns mega calories while minimizing stress on the joints and tissues. 3814 NE 1st Ave., Miami, 305-280-0552
Members of Sunset Harbour’s Anatomy have access to more than just killer gym classes—including Mace, an original class that sculpts the upper body with the help of a heavy steel club—offered from early morning till late in the evening. This luxury locale offers a full recovery area featuring thermotherapy and cold therapy, as well as access to VitaSquad’s vitamin infusion services. Does anyone care for an immunity boost? 1220 20th St., Miami Beach, 786-213-1220
In an effort to share the “Secret of Life,” SOL Yoga founder Cathy DeFrancesco has launched a unique concept that was born from her years of yoga practice as well as her global travels. Situated in the Wynwood Arts District, the luxe studio offers seasoned yogis and budding yogis alike the opportunity to train in an infrared-heated space. “Infrared helps to reduce inflammation, increase circulation, metabolism and promote younger looking skin, too,” DeFrancesco says. For a limited time, SOL Yoga is offering a free week of classes to all new students—what’s not to love? 48 NW 24th St., Miami, 305-549-8550
Billed as an all-in-one fitness hybrid, TruFusion offers upwards of 60 customizable workouts and up to 240 unlimited classes each week. The buzzed-about concept first launched in Las Vegas in 2013, and last year, World Series champion Alex Rodriguez decided to bring it to Miami. Signature classes such as Tru Bootcamp and Tru Hot Barre offer members the chance to try a variety of heart-pumping exercise styles each week. 301 Giralda Ave., Coral Gables, 305-851-5252
North Miami Beach’s Pulse 163 offers a variety of challenging fitness classes that were designed to sculpt and tone the body. Although this boutique studio is heralded for its signature Pulse Barre class, it recently added Jump163 to the roster. The high-energy 45-minute trampoline class offers a calorie burning, intense cardio experience that will make you feel like a kid again. 3447 NE 163rd St., N. Miami Beach, 305-454-0529
