When it comes to keeping your body, mind and soul on point there are nearly an infinite amount of options available to you in the Magic City. Lately the variety of health, fitness and wellness choices has expanded beyond the traditional treadmill and gym. So we decided to round up so come cool new trends in the New Miami that are sure to keep you tip-top.
This one’s been around for a while. But the incredible growth of ‘boxes’ (places where crossfitters work out of has expanded across many neighborhoods creating various sub brands and styles. Some crossfit studios in Miami like Crossfit Wynwood have even gone as far integrating bootcamp and cycling options in their spaces. Ultimately, this is a heavy weightlifting based course and you need to make sure you pay attention to your instructors and don’t push yourself too hard.
Yoga & Meditation
From Aerial Yoga, Yoga teacher certification to just general OHM breaks throughout the day, mindfulness is in huge swing now in Miami (Ha, swing, see what we did there?). The argument is that a strong body starts with a strong mind. Personally we agree. We want to be able to hold our downward dog pose at Atmananda Yoga with Sarra while holding a 30 minute peaceful and focused meditation session at Innergy with Andrea and Elizabeth.
Pilates & More
We didn’t forget your core! It’s all about a nice solid strong midsection that guides you to productivity and physical happiness. With the ongoing trending of the Pilates movement it’s refreshing to see so many new variations of the physical art coming on the scene. One of the places we love is the new multi-position boutique studio Solidcore led by Jessica Welch in the Midtown Miami community.
