The country’s most elite gym expands its Miami presence.
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.
