Ladies and gentlemen, bikini season is upon us but, more importantly, it’s always the season for health and wellness. The benefits of exercise are so many, the list so long of how it can help your body and mind that it’s not even worth going over here; you’ve heard it all before. Now, time to take advantage of how many exercise studios are right here in the Downtown Coral Gables area. Let’s start by saying it’s a lot.

Pilates ProWorks has more than a dozen locations in the United States and abroad, that means it works. Founded by a husband and wife team who’ve dedicated their life to the practice of pilates after Oscar, one half of the duo, sustained injuries in an accident and tried pilates as an alternative to surgery. Like so many before and after him, he found the curative effects of regular pilates practice a cure. He had the same complaint as many pilates devotees – the bill adds up fast and it can be quite pricey to attend classes as often as you might like, or need. Good thing Pilates ProWorks offers an introductory rate of $135 for your first month! Or, try out a first class for only $20 and see how fast it works.

Iron Tribe is perfect for those with the ambition to get in shape but who don’t know where to start. They’ve made it easy, start with the Iron Tribe 101, a 30-day program that will teach you basic movements and nutritional information you need to start your journey toward health and wellness – plus a smaller waistline. Classes are a quick 45 minutes long and feature a warm-up, workout of the day and cool-down and no two classes are ever the same.

Orangetheory Fitness burst onto the scene and has been producing converts to their system ever since. For some, it’s the group effort, the ability to see how you and the people around you are doing on the big screens above you. For others, it’s the interval training and it’s proven success. For others, it’s the science behind the workout, the heart-rate monitor and the 5-zone training sessions. Give Orangetheory and try and see why it might be the right workout for you.

Don’t forget that exercise is just part of health and wellness, so be sure to pass by the many spots in the neighborhood, like Greenlife Miami for your organic juice fix, grab a healthy salad on the go from Giardino or a quick meal that doesn’t sacrifice taste and quality from Sushi Maki.
