Remember playing dodgeball in grade school? It was pretty fun, but you probably didn’t know that Miami actually boasts an adult version of the same fun game. All skills are welcome, as are all genders. The club is not so much about competition as meeting new people and having fun. It’s a great thing to look forward to after a hard day at work. You’ll work up a sweat and get that heart racing.
Have you always loved playing frisbee on the beach? Now you can play ultimate frisbee with a bunch of other cool people at this Miami-based sports club. Some people thrive on competition, while others would just rather enjoy a game for the sake of a game and not worry about getting all competitive. This group meets once a week to play ultimate frisbee in Coconut Grove, and is geared towards beginners to intermediate level players aged 25+ for women and 30+ for men.
Barre combines yoga, pilates, and ballet into a serious workout that works small muscle groups to create a tight and toned body. This boutique fitness class offers both genders the chance to come in and have a great workout, but it’s a bit more on the expensive side and tends to lean more female-centric. If you’re looking to join a community of women who are positive and conscious of living healthy lives, this is your tribe. Memberships run about $200, but they include access to unlimited classes. If you’ve ever wanted a dancer’s body, this is the way to go.
