7 Free Fitness Classes in Miami You Can Do All Year Long

The worst part about working out? Spending hundreds of dollars on a membership. (Yes, worse than burpees or endless lunges; we’d much rather use that cash for wine.) Thankfully, Miami has plenty of free fitness classes you can take advantage of, and we’ve rounded up some of the best. What’s your excuse now?

1. Yoga at Bayfront Park

Every day of the week, yogis can join a free session at the Tina Hills Pavilion near the south side of Bayfront Park, or next door at Bayfront’s neighboring Maurice A. Ferré Park. Psst: These classes are by donation, so chip in a few bucks, won’t ya?

2. Squat and Stretch at a Fitbit Local Sweat Sesh

Fitbit Local hosts a free boot camp, led by top trainers, somewhere in Miami once a month. Think of it as an all-in-one: You’ll focus on body-weight-based moves, take part in a few resistance exercises and beef up your endurance with interval training. Gal Gadot arms, here we come.

3. Yoga, Cycling and Walking with the Underline

As we patiently await the completion of the Underline (the soon-to-be ten-mile linear park under the Miami Metrorail), we’ll settle for free monthly workouts (yoga, cycling, running and walking) sponsored by the nonprofit Friends of the Underline.

Trek all the way to the end of Miami Beach any day of the week and find classes at 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. (5 p.m. in winter). Fact: Chair pose is 78 percent more enjoyable when you’re gazing out at the waves.
