For the most private of athletes, Elite Health & Performance is a private and discreet gym in the exclusive art deco neighborhood of Miami Beach. Don’t think they won’t kick your butt though. The club was founded by former active duty U.S. Navy SEAL Donnie “Chief” Raimon. A 13-year veteran of the SEAL Teams, the chief spent more than a decade on the extreme edge of health and performance so you know once you work out here, you’ll be in tip top military shape. And according to Haute’s own Shareef, it’s hands down the best place to go for private training.
