This deal includes the 24/7-access key card, so you don't have to let The Man tell you when you can avail yourself of Snap's top-of-the-line cardio and strength equipment. Arrive at Snap super late and pretend you're working out in an Edward Hopper painting, or pound the treadmill at four in the morning and get pumped to host a morning shock-jock radio show. Even if you exercise during conventional hours, Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere will provide a refreshing change of pace from any meat-market gym or tough elementary schoolyard you've experienced.

Shula’s Athletic Club—named for Don Shula, the NFL Hall of Famer who coached the Miami Dolphins to a Super Bowl trophy in 1972—doesn’t find it hard to fill its sprawling 40,000 square feet of space. A cardio room with more than 50 pieces of equipment, a spinning center, weight rooms, fitness-class studios, and basketball courts spread through the facility, luring athletes for independent workouts and personal-training sessions. Dozens of weekly fitness classes range from calorie-burning Zumba workouts and Vinyasa-yoga sessions to spin classes that help students practice for the day they have pedal-powered cars.
The athletic club also accommodates older exercisers with aquatic aerobics and seated Silver Sneakers workouts, and it keeps kids busy with confidence-building youth sports programs. Young legs run over a new 60-yard athletic field or nine lighted tennis courts where kids whack tennis balls and low-flying hot-air balloons with rackets.
US 1 Fitness has sculpted local physiques for nearly 20 years in a 24-hour workout facility equipped with helpful staff and parent-friendly childcare. Designed for students of all skill sets, 25 weekly classes sling supportive group workouts that make muscles burn with satisfaction, like an insult uttered from the lips of a sarcastic fire swallower. Spinning students pedal toward fitness goals atop Johnny G bikes, as Zumba workouts incite a metabolic brushfire with fiery dance moves inspired by salsa, samba, and tango. Like a three-legged race with Sigmund Freud, yoga classes unite both mind and body with sinew-stretching poses, strength work, and focusing exercises, and Absolute Abs chisels cement-like stomachs with 15 minutes of intense core-centric conditioning. Consult the class schedule for specific dates and times.
Established for more than 30 years, Olympia Gym is more than just a fitness facility with cutting-edge equipment and classes—it's home to family-oriented staffers who truly go out of their way to help others. Owners Delia and Peter Cicale have sought out new and innovative ways to get people into shape, such as Hoist Roc-It machines that adjust to users' movements, kids' karate classes, and Power Plate vibration training that enhances the ability to high-five a jackhammer operator. Their training services are performed by industry experts, including a kickboxing champion and second-degree blackbelt, and they employed Beto Perez as an instructor before he created the international dance-fitness sensation known as Zumba.
But beyond the gym's impressive list of credentials are real, compassionate people. In 1998, the Sun Sentinel documented that the Cicales and their generous aerobics and spinning students raised more than $3,000 in a single Labor Day for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. More recently, the couple hosted three annual events to support breast-cancer awareness. And an article in The Miami Herald reported on two staff members' cross-country bike journey to raise funds for and increase awareness about Parkinson's disease. The trip was planned by Roy Roden, who suffers from the neurodegenerative brain disorder and still works at the gym part time, and his wife Lynn, who is a personal trainer. Gaby Senior specializes in training people with illnesses or age-related concerns such as osteoporosis. Whatever your fitness and health struggles, the gym's down-to-earth crew is likely to understand them.
