There are numerous studies out there that show correlations between leading an active lifestyle and having a productive and positive work life. It's important that we find time throughout the work week for physical exercise which will not only benefit us physically but also mentally.
We often feel like we may not have done enough physical activity in the day. Perhaps it’s because it has been a busy day at the office and you haven’t gotten out of your chair for hours, glued to your computer for most of it. Or perhaps you have had a recent string of client meetings and lunches and you feel all you have done is eat and eat. However, often the biggest obstacle, is finding the right gym that is convenient and easily accessible. If your looking for a gym in the Hallandale and Aventura area then we have looked at and visited the best in the area taking all of the guess work out for you.

Premier Health & Fitness
Premiere Health & Fitness, open since 1995, is located in the heart of Hallandale Beach making it an ideal and convenient place to work out. The 20,000 square foot facility offers gym goers plenty of room to work out while using their state-of-the-art equipment and machines. The facility proudly boasts 14 different types of workout classes members can choose from include Spinning, Yoga, Body Forging, and Total Body to name a few.
However, what separates this gym from its competitors is their "Zone" class. "Zone" is a unique high-intensity interval training class that is said to burn up to 1,200 calories after one hour class. It’s a class that is not featured with any other neighboring gyms and can only be found at Premier Health & Fitness.
Equinox is a name and brand that most people are very familiar with, but may not know what amenities they offer that other gyms in the area do not. The truth is they offer a lot. Their premier fitness floor offers a relaxing environment while you are busy completing your workout, but the “relaxing” feeling doesn’t have to start or end there.
This Equinox contains a specially designed yoga studio, pilates studio, and even a full-service spa. Within the spa, you can choose from any of their 12 facial treatments, nine massage therapies, and four body treatments. They even offer waxing capabilities within the spa! Parents can also workout or relax easily knowing their kids are enjoying themselves at their Kids’ Club.
The last thing you can do before you leave the gym after a long workout is grab a cold drink from their juice bar. Located within Hallandale’s premier shopping center, this gym is sure to give any business professional the treatment and workout they need before tackling the work again.
Orangetheory Fitness Aventura
Orangetheory is a gym that continues to gain traction throughout the fitness community. Aside from their orange colored themed gyms and studios, the gym specializes in personal training courses. Their sessions often involve both a mix of cardio and strength exercises using equipment such as treadmills, rowers, weight training blocks and TRX suspension bands.
Orangetheory likes to incorporate technology and data into their sessions and gather heart-rate information that is used to keep you in a specific zone to increase your energy and metabolism, two health-related facets that are often affected the most when working in an office. After one session it is easy to understand why Orangetheory is an innovative gym on the rise.
When people think of spin class they might think at first, it’s just a workout involving a stationary bike and not much more than that. Although the stationary bike is the focus of these workouts, spin classes put you through a high-intense full body workout. There is a focus on simulated climbs, sprints, and jumps with spin classes, and RedBike Studios has nailed these workouts down to perfection.
The studio offers six different types of spin classes from any one of their 11 top-rated instructors. The amount of different kinds of spin classes provided is a feature that you will not find in any other gym around you. Additionally, they offer classes as early as 6:30 in the morning meaning whether you work in an Aventura virtual office or an Aventura executive suite these classes are a sure way to start your workday off on the right foot.
Working out on a consistent basis will give you a positive outlook on work and the energy you need to make it through the day. So no matter what gym you end up choosing it is essential to remember that at the very least you are getting out, exercising, and improving your physical and mental health. All of the gyms are located close to our private executive office space so if you need to step outside for a bit of exercise in-between meetings or collecting your mail then these are the best options for you.
