Working Out in a Nightclub

You’ve got nothing against boot camp.

Or spinning, or cross-training, or whatever that workout is where you throw tractor tires through the mud at 5am.

But you’ve also got nothing against state-of-the-art fitness studios with eucalyptus-scented showers, complimentary valet service and strobe lights.

Yes, we said strobe lights.

So take a look at the newly renovated Body & Soul, a disco-ball-spinning, heavy-bass-thumping gym near Coral Gables that’s whipping you into shape with a little help from Hova, now open.

If you took away all the free weights and stationary bikes here, you’d basically be left with a dead ringer for an edgy, industrial South Beach nightclub. Ductwork: exposed. Chrome: plentiful. The crowd: predominantly dressed in skintight day-glo.

Naturally, you’ll want to tackle some of the basic workout essentials: medicine balls, ellipticals (with satellite TVs, of course) or perhaps some training of the personal variety. But the real draw here: the studio classes. Things like hydraulic cycling, battle ropes (think tug-o-war) and one particular group session with a disco ball, flashing lights and high-volume Jay-Z.

Except for this Tuesday, when they’ll be hosting their grand-opening soiree with DJs spinning, gratis vodka cocktails, a cameo by Pharrell and possibly some flash-mob action.

Vodka > Gatorade.
