2 Fast Track Boxing: SobeKick
You may have heard about the new "HIT" method to sculpting your body, but you have probably never felt sweat rolling down your face while the trainer watches you making sure you don't have a chance to cheat. Yup, this Fast Track Boxing class takes High Intensity Training to a new level, and your trainer is sure to remind you during each class with his "I never told you it was going to be easy!!" words of motivation when you really want to give up. The exercises in this class are designed to include all of your major muscle groups, creating the best combination of cross training and strength conditioning, pushing your body to its optimal level of effort for short bursts. Our favorite classes here are "Fast Track Boxing" by Nelson and "Abs and Butt" by Ella Magers (sexyfitvegan.com). Those extra calories you had last night? Consider them gone with 500+ calorie burning workouts.

3 Butt & Legs: Barry's Bootcamp
A class favorite, Butt & Legs! This class is definitely one that will give your derriere that "UMPH" you promised yourself for 2016. Famously amongst the pioneers of the "booty bands," this lower body focused class is sure to make you work for those legs. A solid mixture of 25-30 minutes on the treadmill (sprinting of course because thats how infamous booties are made) and 25-30 minutes on the floor doing ass-to-grass squats, back lounges, donkey kicks and everything in between. The dimmed room with red ambient lighting will give you a sense of power and strength which you will definitely feel the next day.
1835 Purdy Avenue Miami Beach, FL 33139
SoulCyle has found a workout system that definitely works- find a niche, and be the best at it- and they do just that. Having studios around the United States, its easy to see how this class has revolutionized the way people cycle.
