Spyros Laser MedSpa draws on its director's 25 years of healing experience to provide guests with state-of-the-art aesthetic procedures. As its name suggests, the center's centerpiece is its Candela GentleYag laser, whose fine-tunable power settings let it zap unwanted hair, smooth wrinkles, and erase varicose veins on all types of skin. Technicians can also calibrate the beam for less-common procedures such as clearing up toenail fungus. Elsewhere, peels, facials, and Botox injections leave faces as smooth and radiant as the porcelain masks worn by all movie stars.
A local landmark for more than 50 years, Duffy's entertains patrons with 20 draft beers and an eclectic menu of hearty pub fare staples. A selection of 16 burgers anchor the sumptuous spread, with selections ranging from the jalapeno-topped Mexicali burger ($7.25) to the Italian burger ($7.25), smothered in marinara sauce and parmesan cheese. Fish fans can incite a feeding frenzy with an appetizer of fried shrimp ($9.99) perched next to a choice of onion rings, potato salad, or steak or cheese fries, while fried clams ($6) escape an otherwise chowdery death in the company of fries and homemade tartar sauce. Though a food purchase is required with this Groupon, Duffy's offers a full drink menu including domestic, imported and craft beers.
For a lot of people, the encouragement of a trainer is the key to jump-starting a new fitness routine. But at Bring it Bootcamp, one trainer isn’t enough—during each of their sessions, multiple instructors are on hand to keep students inspired and supervise the safety of their techniques. Inside Bring it Bootcamp’s expansive building—a warehouse-style space with an energizing yellow exterior—groups circle up for rotating routines that might include anything from pushups to attempting to push the building 2 inches to the left. The flexible schedule has both morning and evening classes during the week, as well as a Saturday session.
The instructors at Perfect Balance Fitness & Martial Arts Training strive to create a happy marriage between Eastern and Western philosophies. Master Al Agon draws from the discipline and fitness ideals of ancient martial arts techniques and modernizes them with instruction tailored to help kids build discipline and focus in school and professionals cope with stresses at work. To earn a black belt, students must exhibit devotion not only at the gym but also in other important aspects of life, such as relationships and school work, striving toward a lifetime of fitness and overall contentment. In addition to the martial arts program, the venue also hosts intense kickboxing classes in which students pummel punching bags until they agree to share the secrets of withstanding a pummeling. One-on-one personal training sessions also adhere to Agon's training philosophy and are tailored to help clients meet their individual wellness goals.
There's science behind the weight loss at Robaina Bootcamp Fitness. That's because board-certified Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine Joe Robaina has a background in exercise physiology, sports science, fitness instruction, and nutrition. He put all of those skills together to create a fitness program that promotes not just strength and weight loss, but also overall health. The program's short but mighty 30-minute boot camp workouts are held just three times per week and help exercisers burn calories, improve flexibility, and increase the amount of steel in their muscles. To complement effort on the boot-camp floor, workouts are supplemented with a comprehensive nutrition program that teaches clients which foods boost metabolism so they can burn fat even when they're not working out.
Set in a large, open warehouse, CrossFit Soul offers small group CrossFit classes to Miami workout mavens trying to tone up. The “box” – don’t call it a studio – has fitness programs that can help with losing weight, becoming a better player on a sports team, recovering from an injury or simply transitioning into a healthier lifestyle. For expectant mothers who want to stay in shape and maintain a balanced life, there’s even a CrossFit for Pregnancy session available on site. Prior to being able to take classes, clients must complete the On Ramp Course that lays out the basic level of instruction and techniques used inside the sparse facility. And, as usual, the first class is free.
