If you’ve ever been to Fort Lauderdale (or even just seen it in pictures), you know it has a lot to offer; sunshine, beaches, the Intracoastal, Las Olas Blvd, and, you guessed it, Peerfit studios! From corporate franchise studios like Hard Exercise Works to home-grown studios like The Fit Shop, Fort Lauderdale offers a smorgasbord of fitness options. If you are like us and struggle with having too many options, this article will help you find the best place to #peerfit in Fort Lauderdale for you.
The Fit Shop
Modeled after a mechanic's workshop, The Fit Shop takes you through everything from “Tune Up” to “Supercharge” classes, leaving you feeling like a well-oiled machine. Each day of the week focuses on a different body group, but every day has a common theme: an elevated heart rate. This class is for those who love pushing their bodies to the limit, hearing their heartbeat in their ears and embracing the sweat that is inevitable when working hard. The studio features TRX, turf for sled pushes, rowers, assault bikes, and much more. Think of The Fit Shop as a candy shop for fitness goers - the possibilities are endless, but every option as sweet (or sweaty) as the next.
Ahh-mazing Yoga Shala manifested as a result of meditating daily to the sacred sound of “Ahhh,” as inspired by author Dr. Wayne Dyer. This studio offers Hatha, Annutara raja, Hatha to Yoga Nidra and Restorative yoga to not only accommodate whatever style you may need but also allow you to try different styles of yoga. Not sure which style to try first? Check out our guide to the many styles of yoga here.
Ahh-mazing name and ahh-mazing classes, this studio will be sure to bring instill balance and zen back into your daily routine.
Does the thought of pedaling your hardest on a stationary bike seem boring to you? Well, that certainly won’t be the case in one of Ride Element’s spin classes.
With their own “Cycling Theater,” you’ll be surrounded by music, lights, and so much energy that you’ll forget you’re at a spin class and trick yourself into thinking you snagged an invite to Pitbull’s New Year’s Eve party. You can even switch it up with a blended class since Ride Element offers TRX as well.
Whether you’re new to spinning or prepping for the Tour de France, you’ll have an absolute blast at Ride Element!
The Pit Fit Center
Ok, so technically this studio is in Boca, but it’s worth the drive - we promise. A cross between boot camp and CrossFit, The Pit Fit Center consists of high-intensity movements like kettlebell swings, sprints, and burpees with different Olympic lifts like deadlifts, squats and bench presses for those who enjoy a blend. Participants are paired up to increase camaraderie and classes are always busy - in a good way! Pit Fit instructors are known for having an amazing energy that pushes everyone to do their best. This facility features a large workout area with turf, squat racks, treadmills, rowers, and even a basketball net. If you’re lucky, the owner’s dog will pay a visit for a pick me up when the workout gets ruff. Nervous about trying CrossFit? Read why you don't have to be here.
There's no doubt that there is quite a lot to do in the Fort Lauderdale area. Perhaps just going on the beach for a run is how you want to spend your South Florida day, but if you are looking for a group fitness class to enjoy with some friends and family, look no further than these fitness studios.
