There’s no shortage of weights at Miami Sports Clubs—the facility estimates that it has 20,000 pounds on hand. And there’s no shortage of amenities either. Personal TV monitors flicker on each machine in the cardio theater, and TRX suspension and BOSU training gear line the boxing area. Fitness instructors demonstrate how to use all this equipment during personal-training sessions, and stage synchronized sweats during group classes such as Zumba, spinning, and kickboxing. To cap everything off, Miami Sports Clubs features a private massage studio, standup-tanning booths, saunas, and a bar that serves protein shakes, which can power workouts or sprints out to the parking lot to turn off your headlights.
