Sports science and nightlife veterans create a fitness and wellness wonderland unlike any other.
The focus: Sweat, enhance, and recover with scientifically based high-tech services.
Special stats: Aside from personal training, private Pilates, and group classes, Anatomy at 1220 offers a host of innovative wellness and beauty treatments. Pump your veins with vitamin infusions by Vitasquad, boost your skin’s collagen production with an Endermologie facial, get realigned by the on-site chiropractor, and choose hot or cold recovery with the infrared sauna, eucalyptus steam room, or cold plunge and cold sauna.
Don’t miss: The rooftop turf and terrace. Train among the palm trees, then bask in the sun and refuel with a salad and beverage.
Celebrity sightings: Will Smith, Heather Graham, Gabrielle Union, Kevin Spacey, and P Diddy all choose Anatomy at 1220.
Hottest trainer: Grant Weeditz. One of Anatomy at 1220’s body architects, this US Army veteran uses non-traditional equipment and unconventional training to whip clients into shape.
Fitness philosophy: “Balance is critical,” asserts Weeditz. “Being completely sedentary is not optimal. Running yourself into the ground through training every day is also not optimal. Work towards being active on most days.”
Go-to workout: “The steel mace and club are a few tools of fitness I’ll bring to the roof for a quick workout,” says Weeditz. “Lower or upper body, cardio or core, all goals can be met with only one or two maces and clubs. Their three-dimensional nature allows a larger amount of movement freedom with proper instruction.” 1220 20th St., Miami, 786-2131220; anatomyat1220.com
Breaking a sweat is easier to bear with a breeze at your back and rooftop views. ơƞƫƞ Anatomy’s Jacqueline Kasen
