What’s new: A gor­geous and mas­sive 34,000-square-foot, three-story space at Brick­ell Heights. Putting a South Florida spin on the Equinox de­sign, the Brick­ell Heights fa­cil­ity in­cor­po­rates an out­door pool with ca­banas and a wrap­around deck with stun­ning ocean views.

The fo­cus: In­no­va­tive fit­ness classes, un­ri­valed per­sonal train­ing, and lux­ury ameni­ties.

Perks: Full ser­vice spas, sa­lons, kids’ clubs, cy­cling stu­dios, Pi­lates stu­dios, and more.

Hottest trainer: Gio­vanni Roselli. A mas­ter trainer and ed­u­ca­tor for Nike, Roselli is the creator of the Equinox sig­na­ture class, Fully Loaded, a 45-minute ses­sion that chal­lenges you to move weights in all di­rec­tions— in­stead of only lin­early—for 360 de­grees of move­ment.

Fit­ness phi­los­o­phy: “None of us want to be in pain and we all want the best qual­ity of life pos­si­ble,” says Roselli. “My ap­proach re­volves around these two goals. Once these be­come a pri­or­ity, all other fit­ness in­ten­tions and as­pi­ra­tions fall right into place.”

Go-to ex­er­cise: The Turk­ish Get-up. “It’s a full-body ex­er­cise sec­ond to none that in­cor­po­rates sta­bil­ity and mo­bil­ity in a va­ri­ety of func­tional, loaded po­si­tions,” Roselli ex­plains.

Book it: Tier X. Avail­able at the Co­ral Gables club, Tier X is the next level in per­sonal train­ing. You’ll get a coach rather than a tra­di­tional trainer, who will give you an ex­ten­sive as­sess­ment in­clud­ing body com­po­si­tion in­dex, pos­tural anal­y­sis, and meta­bolic rate mea­sure­ment to cre­ate a per­son­al­ized life­style man­age­ment pro­gram guar­an­teed to get re­sults. Visit equinox.com for lo­ca­tions.
