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

Exercise is vital to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Not only is it good for your body, it is rejuvenating to your mind, soul and overall well-being. While there are a number of traditional gyms and fitness centers scattered throughout the region, let's explore some out-of-the-box options for exercise. With all of the sun we get in the Sunshine State, it's only right to head outside for some of these activities. However, there are a few indoor options as well — perfect for a rainy day workout or a break from the summertime heat.  

Outdoor Activities

Yoga at the Beach

Yoga on the Beach As if the practice of yoga wasn't rejuvenating and relaxing enough, imagine attending a yoga class with nothing in sight but the serene Atlantic Ocean. Take in the calming sounds of ocean waves lapping on the shore, breathe in the fresh salty sea smell, and admire the beauty of a glorious sparkly backdrop while you do Yoga at the Beach in Boca Raton. They believe yoga classes are best done in relaxing and natural environments, such as at parks, on the beach or overlooking the Intracoastal. Yoga at the Beach is suitable for both new and intermediate yoga students. Each month, they offer full moon yoga classes, sunset yoga classes, and workout yoga classes!  

Tennis

Tennis Many South Florida residents enjoy the luxury of a private tennis court — either in their community or even their own backyard. This is a convenient way to remain on top of your game and stay in shape, as this leisurely yet fast-paced activity will get your heart pumping. If you do not have a tennis court nearby, consider joining a local country club with tennis courts on site. Some of the area's best private golf courses are joined by exceptional tennis facilities! Boca West Country Club has an extensive tennis program boasting more than 30 Hydro courts surrounded by lush vegetation and gorgeous views of their five-star golf courses.  

Swimming

Swimming With immediate ocean access and a complicated network of waterways weaving throughout the area, South Florida is positioned to be the perfect place to go swimming. Whether you do laps in a resort-style pool located right in your backyard or community, or take a dip in natural surrounding waters, swimming is the perfect way to work out and cool off simultaneously. And of course, swimming is easy on your joints and relieves your body from strenuous pressure you might experience in a gym setting. Some of the best pools dedicated to lap swimming can be found at the Swim and Racquet Center of Greater Boca Raton or the expansive Fort Lauderdale Aquatic Complex, featuring three large outdoor lap pools.

Stand-Up Paddleboarding

Paddleboarding If you have yet to try stand-up paddleboarding, you are in for a treat. This sport has gained popularity as of late, as it is both challenging and laid-back, allowing you to experience the ocean, a river or lake from a new perspective. Paddleboards look like a surfboard but are much longer, making balance easier — for those as young as six years old all the way up to participants in their 80s. Sunrise Paddleboards is located along the Middle River in Fort Lauderdale, where you can surf in the ocean, explore the river, or join their popular "Venice of America" tour on the Intracoastal. Work out your core and experience some of the area's most breathtaking sights by paddleboarding with Sunrise Paddleboards.  

Cycling, Walking or Jogging

  Running, Walking and Cycling in South Florida This may seem like an obvious way to exercise, but why not try a change of scenery from your regular route? Or if you're an avid treadmill user, get outside for a dose of fresh air! Take a trip to the historic Jungle Trail, spanning 8 miles along a barrier island in Vero Beach. This sandy trail is included on the National Register of Historic Places, as it was built in the 1920s for citrus growers to haul produce up and down the barrier island. Today, it is used primarily for cyclists, walkers and joggers, who enjoy varied vistas along this scenic trail, from wildlife-dense tropics to river views, and everything in between.  

Indoor Activities

Yoga Studios

Anuttara Yoga

Rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit with a yoga class at Anuttara Yoga, named one of the best yoga studios in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. In either of their two locations, in Deerfield Beach or Delray Beach, you can experience the revitalizing practice of yoga in their heated or unheated classes. If you enjoy your sessions, you might even escape the busyness of life at their Ocala Yoga Retreat, featuring daily yoga practice and meditation, meals prepared by vegan chefs, comfortable accommodations in private cabins, stand-up paddleboard or suspension yoga classes, wakeboarding, and other activities.  

Pilates

Pilates is a system of exercises encompassing over 500 controlled, precise movements performed on a floor mat or special apparatus, designed to strengthen and stretch your muscles, in addition to enhance mental awareness and improve posture.
