Established in 1978, Olympia Gym is more than just a fitness facility with cutting-edge equipment and classes—it's a family-oriented private club that caters to members who want the most out of their workout. Owners Delia and Peter Cicale as well as the trainers and staff provide a fun and safe way to achieve your desired weight.
Amenities at the gym include Hoist Roc-It machines that adjust to users' movements, a free weight room, a steam and sauna room, kids' karate classes, and TRX and Power Plate vibration training that enhances the ability to gain muscle. Their training services are performed by industry experts with decades of knowledge and experience.
But beyond the gym's compassionate, motivating people is an impressive list of credentials – they have been dubbed the Best Gym and Best Trainers by the Miami Sun Post. Their trainers specialize in injury recovery and services for pre- and post-natal women, but whatever your fitness needs and goals are, the gym's down-to-earth crew is there to help you achieve them.
Fitness industry veteran Dulcinea Lee Hellings's goal is to bring a high-quality, effective exercise regimen to people who don't love big gyms or can't afford personal trainers. In 2004, she realized that mornings could be used for more than hitting the snooze button over and over for two hours, and founded Boot Camp "Morning Crunch!" to help fledgling exercisers whip into shape.
She designs her all-levels programs to be scream-free morning motivators⎯the first stop in her patrons' journey of daily accomplishments. The fast-paced, ever-changing circuit of strength and cardio exercises keeps bodies guessing and minds from becoming bored. Each of the boot camp's 12 outdoor locations has a different dedicated trainer who gets to know each student personally, remembering their names and memorizing any interesting freckle patterns. They complement their morning routines with a smattering of evening options for those who prefer to work out after the day's activities.
SMB Fitness stands for soul, mind, and body. The professional trainers at this upscale gym aim to strengthen all three through 70-minute cardio training sessions, which rotate around five stations in 30-minute intervals to work out muscles with intense physical challenges. While powering through each exercise, students keep track of their progress with innovative and cutting edge technology such as heart-rate monitors and fusing their brains with Facebook. Instructors also lead a variety of classes such as body-sculpting classes such as Barre Fit, Anti-Gravity yoga, and TRX.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 5 or 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
From boot camp to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, spin class to capoeira, Knockout Zone's curriculum forks into several paths to fitness. And students are in good hands when it comes to their martial-arts education: the staff of decorated instructors includes former MMA fighter Jorge Pereira and Diego Devera, former champion of Argentina in light-contact karate. The studio's schedule also includes kids' programs in Tae Kwon Do and boxing.
Be inspired. Be Motivated. Be balanced. That's the motto at Studio Be, a health club dedicated to helping each and every client be the best they can...well, be. To accomplish this task, class sizes are kep small so that the seasoned staff can provide one-on-one attention to each and every yoga, Pilates, boot camp, or spinning participant. Meanwhile, personal trainers don't just lead guests through the motions of a repetitive workout: instead, they educate clients on the proper ways to exercise and eat right and closely monitor their progress towards fitness their goal, whether that's running a marathon or just dropping a few pounds.
