Fitness is the utmost priority for many South Florida residents. In fact, Fort Lauderdale recently ranked number 12 on the list of the 50 healthiest cities in the country! This statistic is reflected in the many healthy eateries and juice bars across town, as well as the wide variety of gyms and classes that span our region. While each of these gyms boasts a unique flair and an army of top-notch personal trainers ready to whip you into shape, we believe that working out on the beach is good for the mind as well as the body. We rounded up some of our favorite workout classes or facilities on the beach, so you can work on your fitness to the soundtrack of rolling waves and seabirds, and enjoy views of the sweeping Florida sky.  

The Gym Fort Lauderdale

The Gym

The Gym certainly is a gem when it comes to workout facilities, boasting an open-air rooftop with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway. While the views are spectacular at any time of day, many choose to get their sweat on in the early hours or right before dinner, which allows them to witness the South Florida sky during sunrise or sunset. Workout your way with a wide array of free weights, stationary bikes, benches and other equipment, or enlist a personal trainer to hold you accountable. You also have the option to enroll in a group fitness class, or take advantage of the full-service indoor gym when the weather turns sour! Afterward, enjoy cooling down with a leisurely walk on the beach. 3001 SE 5th St, Fort Lauderdale  

Fort Lauderdale Beach Yoga

There is nothing more invigorating than participating in a yoga flow on the sand, under the sun, with the sound of crashing waves in the background. Luckily, this option is available to you every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday year round, thanks to Fort Lauderdale Beach Yoga. The best of Fort Lauderdale's yoga instructors will guide you through challenging hatha flow classes in the morning, or help you wind down your day with a yin meditation class at sunset (during the summer months). While donations are encouraged, you will not be bound by any membership fees, and are free to come enjoy the class of your choice at your leisure. Classes Take Place on the Fort Lauderdale Beach one block South of Sunrise Blvd, Next to Lifeguard Station #13  

The Calisthenics Park on the Beach

Take control of your own workout routine at the calisthenics park on the beach. This free, public  workout facility is built into the sand, and includes all of the equipment you need to design your own full-body workout under the sun and by the water. Enjoy challenging yourself and reaching new goals on the high bars, incline benches, and low bars, and then cool off with a quick dip in the Atlantic. 1100 Seabreeze Blvd., Fort Lauderdale

The infamous Sweaty Sunday Funday Beach Workout occurs once a month at the Fort Lauderdale Beach Park, and includes a 15-minute dynamic warm up, a 30-minute circuit workout on the sand, and a 15-minute yoga stretch to cool down. Workouts are just a bit better when you have the Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop. 1100 Seabreeze Blvd., Fort Lauderdale  

Outback Fitness Gym

Located on the second level of the Bahia Mar Beach Resort is Outback Fitness, a state-of-the-art fitness center equipped with high quality equipment and an entire wall of free weights to help you get the best workout you can imagine.

If you have mastered the art of working out in the sand, maybe it is time to step it up a notch and venture into the waves. Stand up paddle boarding is one of the most popular fitness options for Florida locals, offering the chance to work your abdominals, arms, and legs, work on your balance, and enjoy panoramic vistas of the beach from the water. Sunrise Paddleboards invites you to build paddle boarding into your workout routine with paddle board fitness 101 — a two-hour class that will teach you how to incorporate cardio and strength into your paddle boarding routine. The top-notch fitness instructors will cater to your individual needs and fitness goals, and help you design a water-based workout that is challenging, fun and effective.

Boca Raton is a luxurious resort community with endless beaches, lavish estates and an overall exotic atmosphere. The beaches along the coast are known for their white sand and sparkling, crystal blue waters. They are conveniently connected by three city parks, Spanish River Park, Red Reef Park and South Beach Park. The county also manages a fourth park at the southern end of Boca called South Inlet Park. Get to know the attractive features of each Boca beach and plan your next adventure to these sparkling white sand beaches illuminated by the glorious Florida sunshine!  

Red Reef Park

Red Reef Park is perhaps the most popular beach in the city. However, if you go early in the morning or during a weekday, you are more likely to escape the crowds. This 67-acre oceanfront park offers a myriad of amenities amidst beautiful scenery, and even has its own nature center. This is an ideal destination for families because of the wide selection of kid-friendly attractions and features. The Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is a preserve with a boardwalk leading to a beautiful lookout, where visitors can explore an enchanting butterfly garden and observe tanks with sea turtles. Red Reef Park also provides pristine conditions for snorkeling, as the beach holds man-made limestone boulders creating reefs just 10 feet off the shore. Examine stunning marine life, including tropical fish, turtles, eels and stingrays. The Red Reef Executive Golf Course is a picturesque 9-hole course nestled between the ocean and Intracoastal Waterway, providing stunning water views for golfers. With a variety of features, including crystal clear teal waters for swimming, picnic tables and more, there is something for everyone to do at this beachfront park. In fact, the southern end of Red Reef Park is ideal for surfers!  

South Beach Park

South Beach Park is a smaller 24.5-acre beach with three swimming areas, and pristine areas for surfing, fishing and bird-watching. Aside from the beauty of this beach, visitors are located near some of Boca's most renowned attractions, including Mizner Park, the Boca Raton Resort & Club, and the Boca Raton Golf Club. This is a laid-back option for those desiring a quiet afternoon soaking up the sun and digging toes in the sand. Maximize your stay with a vacation or "staycation" at the Boca Raton Resort & Club, one of the most luxurious attractions in the region. This expansive 356-acre resort was designed by legendary architect Addison Mizner, and has reigned as an icon of elegance for more than 80 years. Bask in the wonder of a private beach, an award-winning spa, championship golf and tennis facilities, a luxury marina, and more — just steps from your luxe accommodations.  

South Inlet Park

Location Just south of the Boca Raton Resort & Club lies the serene and quaint South Inlet Park. Local yachters and boaters are quite familiar with this park, as it is located alongside the Boca Raton Inlet connecting the Intracoastal Waterway to the ocean. Inlet rock barriers alongside the park attract unique sea life, making this an enjoyable area for snorkeling. Visitors may fish from the shoreline or the jetty, set up a picnic, enjoy the playground, lay in the sun, or go swimming in the beautiful ocean. This 11-acre park may be small but it has a lot in store!
