As we welcome in the New Year, keeping our resolutions is at the top of everyone’s list. Of course, we’d all love to stay fit, but keeping that course is often easier said than done. Luckily for us, Miami gives us plenty of haute options to do so, with ones that may make the resolutions a bit easier to attain. From outdoor fitness activities to trendy group training classes, we’ve rounded up our top five picks to help you get on the right track in 2017.
1 Yoga on the Bay at the Mondrian
There's something about working out outdoors that makes the whole process much more enjoyable. And meditating against the breathtaking view of Biscayne Bay certainly makes it all the better. Yoga on the Bay at the Mondrian every Sunday morning is a must-try, hosted by Green Monkey Yoga. All you have to do is bring your mat and show up for the class--it's even free! Namaste.
2 Paddle Boarding or Yoga at The Standard
Tone your body and work on your tan as you paddle out to the bay from the tranquil Standard Hotel in Miami Beach. The hotel offers private or group 1-hour stand up paddle boarding classes from Hirooka Surf & Sport from Thursday-Saturday. The spa also offers outdoor yoga classes daily with stunning views of the bay. Afterwards, cool down by the pool with one of the spa's fresh-pressed juices and enjoy the Miami sun.
3 Soul Cycle at 1 Hotel South Beach
Soul Cycle is always a great choice to get you motivated and back on the bike. With lively beats and a haute location at the 1 Hotel in Miami Beach, the ever-so-popular spin class is the perfect way to start your morning before hitting the beach with your friends at Soho House.
4 Aquafit Miami at Home
If you're looking to change things up, the new haute trend in Miami is taking place underwater. Aquafit Miami offers customizable aquatic fitness classes where you can workout and feel the burn through the resistance of the water. Even better, make a day of it and invite all your closest friends to your home for a group fitness class before relaxing by the pool.
5 Pilates at Jetset
Another favorite is JetSet pilates. The popular pilates studio is the perfect way to tone your body and relax your mind, offering a variety of different levels and styles of classes with those focusing on the full body and others honing in on just on abs & arms. The studio has expanded throughout Miami with locations in Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Wynwood and North Miami.
