The space: A 14,000-square-foot grown-up jun­gle gym, com­plete with cus­tom ob­sta­cles, a climb­ing rope wall, mon­key bars, out­door work­out ar­eas, and an ocean­front yoga plat­form.

The fo­cus: Func­tional move­ment that will strengthen you for life, with Pi­lates, yoga, and med­i­ta­tion classes to boot.

Spe­cial stats: The fa­cil­ity is the first-ever Spar­tan Gym, cre­ated in part­ner­ship with Spar­tan Race, the world’s lead­ing ob­sta­cle-race com­pany.

Hottest trainer: Lawrence Siko­rski, a former United States Ma­rine turned fit­ness pro and MC2 model—what more could you ask for? Catch him in ac­tion as he does the Magic City proud on NBC’S Spar­tan Ul­ti­mate Team Chal­lenge.

Fit­ness phi­los­o­phy: “It’s not about try­ing to be some­one else’s best, but be­ing yours,” Siko­rski says. “Change your mind, change your body. Fit­ness in fail­ure is a beau­ti­ful thing.”

Go-to work­out: For Siko­rski, it’s “the power burpee: Chest to the ground, push up, pop up, jump to a pullup bar, straight into a mus­cle up, then…go­rilla sprints!”

Book it: The Spar­tan Week­end ex­pe­ri­ence. Test your lim­its with a set of chal­leng­ing train­ing classes and pro­grams over the course of a week­end that will help you find your in­ner sol­dier. The pack­age in­cludes a choice of a gue­stroom or suite at the 1 Ho­tel, re­cov­ery ses­sions, sun­down cel­e­bra­tions, and Spar­tan com­mu­nity gath­er­ings to keep you bal­anced. 2341 Collins Ave., Mi­ami Beach, 305-604-1000; 1ho­ south-beach/spar­tan-gym

The gym also hosts Spar­tan Week­end, a multi-day ex­er­cise ex­trav­a­ganza.
