The State tends to be ahead of the curve when it comes to wellness, so where better for a holiday with a fitness fix? Miami is renowned for its beautiful beaches, art deco architecture and great nightlife, but it’s also the place for healthy living – where the rich and famous mingle with the fitness focused to get in South Beach shape.

Welcome To Miami

Mind, body and soul

If you want to rejuvenate inside and out, head to Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa in Miami Beach. Surrounded by like-minded folk – everyone was walking around in gym gear as they headed from one class to the next – it’s the perfect place to crank your fitness up a notch, chill out in the beautiful spa, or cleanse your system with the tailored nutrition plans.

I love gym classes but I have to admit, it takes quite a lot to wow me these days. Canyon Ranch’s programme, however, is impressive. Classes run from 7am to 7pm, sometimes with four or five options on offer at the same time, in different studios. My favorite was the Live DJ Aerobics in the Ocean Studio – and yes, that’s an open-air studio overlooking the beach! There’s so much to choose from no one will be left wanting, from Buff Ballet and power to salsa and Burdenko Water (a balance-boosting workout, for the uninitiated).

But it’s not all about classes – the gym facilities are top-notch, plus there are four swimming pools and the on-your-doorstep beach to keep you busy! Prefer something more adventurous? The indoor rock wall means you can get the hang of climbing with the help of expert trainers.

A learning experience

If you’re after a real overhaul, Canyon Ranch offers a chance to make lasting changes through its workshops. From boosting your skin health to your relationships, there’s a whole range of courses designed to help you whip your body – and life – into shape. The resort takes a holistic approach to wellness, combining expert advice and a health centre with a deluxe spa and fitness facility – and a largely organic and locally sourced menu at its restaurants. It also offers tailored holiday packages to cater to needs such as stress relief, weight loss and pain.

If that all sounds like too much hard work, don’t fret – there’s plenty of scope for blog-standard relaxing at Canyon Ranch! The luxurious suites are the ideal place to unwind after a busy day in the gym or exploring South Beach. And the spa (the biggest in Florida) das an exhaustive meny of treatments to match, plus steam rooms, thermal suites, soaking tubs, and – wait for it – an igloo!

A different pace

If the party atmosphere of South Beach isn’t for you, there are plenty of other areas with a much more chilled-out vibe. Aventura, north of Miami Beach, is perfect for kicking back and enjoying some sport. Turnberry Isle Miami, nestled in 300 acres of lush greenery, is well known for its epic golf course: the stunning grounds host tournaments and offer expert tuition.

If you’re a tennis fan, Turnberry Isle will tick every box. The hotel has teamed up with Canas Tennis, which provides tuition from players ranked in the top 10 for doubles and singles, so it’s the perfect place to reinvigorate ant Wimbledon ambitions.

After all the exertion, refueling is key and Turnberry Isle’s Bourbon Steak restaurant is the ideal place for a protein fix. The steak is cooked to perfection and complemented by mouth-watering sides – it’s worth working out all day to eat here! But, the healthy options are no afterthought, either. The kitchen is stocked with fresh produce from the chef’s own garden, so lighter meals are just as impressive.

Being that little bit further from downtown Miami makes Turnberry Isle a great place to escape life for a while. Lounge around in the poolside cabanas then hit the spa or simply enjoy your spacious room – I managed to devise a complete workout circuit in mine!

Healthy living

There’s no fear of boredom in Miami. If you’re a water baby, head to Biscayne Bay for every water sport imaginable; runners should hit the beach path for a really invigorating morning session before the sun heats up; and cyclists can hire a DecoBike to explore the city – it’s a great way to get around. While you’re out and about there are plenty of fresh and healthy dining options, but my favorite had to be Area 31 with its glamorous rooftop lounge – it’s the perfect spot for lunch or sundowner drinks. Health balance? Achieved.
