Bikini season is over for most of the country, but even with fall officially here there’s very little sweater weather happening. While food is very important (it’s everything to us), fitness is as well — which is why we’ve scoped out the top workouts in Miami to keep you in shape this fall.

Rise Nation Miami

Don’t have a lot of time to work out? Not to worry. Rise Nation’s 30-minute high-intensity interval (HIIT) workout has you covered. In just half an hour, you will burn and sweat more calories than most hour long classes on the VersaClimber, a cardio machine that stimulates vertical climbing. According to Men’s Health, 30-minutes on VersaClimber burns 670 calories, which means you can have that glass of wine at dinner AND dessert.

Not only does the VersaClimber burn a lot of calories, but it is a zero-impact workout making it great on the joints, and it also activates all of the major muscle groups simultaneously. It’s no wonder Lebron James told ESPN, “If I could only have one piece of equipment to train with for the rest of my life this would be it.”

Rise Nation Miami is a super clean studio that’s modern and mimics that of LIV Nightclub with a ceiling that lights up to the tempo of the music during all of their choreographed classes. The dynamic lighting and premium sound along with quality trainers makes for a one-of-a-kind 30-minute workout. It’s pretty obvious why celebrities like Matt Damon, Jennifer Aniston and Lady Gaga swear by this workout.

After you complete your Rise Nation workout, be sure to stop by Blue Bottle Coffee and/or St. Roch Market, which are both located next to Rise Nation in Miami’s Design District.

PRO TIP: Receive a discount on your first class with their $10 first-timer special.

Barry’s Bootcamp

Barry’s Bootcamp has a reputation for being the best workout in the world, and we couldn’t agree more. When you step into the “red room” for a one-hour Barry’s Bootcamp class, expect to burn 1,000 calories or more. From weight training to cardio, and bursts of anaerobic exercise, your heart rate will immediately increase. You’ll boost your resting metabolism by up to 15%, tone muscle, and increase lean body mass. It’s a great way to burn off calories after indulging in all of those pumpkin spiced lattes this fall.

You’ll find red-tinted studios with dim lighting, supreme sound systems, and the signature Barry’s treadmills in their Miami Beach, Midtown and Aventura locations. Barry’s expert fitness instructors will guide you through classes so you can really push the limits during your next workout like some of their celebrity clients: Ellie Goulding, Mandy Moore, David Beckham and Harry Styles. Your body will thank you — so will your chiseled abs and physique.

After completing a Barry’s Bootcamp class, we suggest carb-loading at Pubbelly Sushi, La Moderna and Lucali. You’ll thank us later!

PRO TIP: During the month of October, Barry’s Bootcamp is offering the Decades Challenge to celebrate their 20th anniversary. The challenge features 20 classes in 30 days – sign up by October 14.
