Miami is known for its beaches and beach bodies. With the winter weather in full effect these past few weeks in the East Coast, many flock to the south for the warmth and fun in the sun, so it makes sense that we unveil the best workouts in one of the hottest cities with our Miami Winter 2014 Fitness guide!
Where To: Barre
Located in Miami’s EPIC Hotel, Exhale Spa is a dream fitness destination for vacationers and Miami residents alike. Core Fusion uses weights, balls, bands, and body resistance to burn calories while focusing on the core.
Flywheel might be known for their killer spin classes, but the hot spot is also sculpting bodies with their Flybarre classes. Flybarre is the perfect compliment to cycling with its power to lengthen and tone every inch of your body.
The Bar Method gives killer muscle-building poses to sculpt deep within areas such as the back, core, butt and shoulders. The moves are isometric to carve muscle and burn major fat. In fact, doing these hour long classes three to five times per week and you are guaranteed to see all over definition within 30 days.
