School is officially back in session which means back to early morning workouts. As we enter the start of a new school year STAY FIT 305 wants to give all parents (and non-parents) and students a list to reference when wanting to hit the gym before the madness begins, because what’s a better way to beat traffic than with an early start at the gym? Here are 15 studios who offer early classes for our early risers:

  1. Legacy Fit
    Location: Doral, Coral Gables, Wynwood
    First Class: Free/6am
    Shower: Yes
    Three locations means three chances to get an early start to your day. This P.I.T (partner internal training) is an intense 60-minute boot camp style class incorporating TRX, pull sleds, body weight movements and cardio. Come prepared to get your butt kicked real early.
  2. JetSet Pilates
    Location: Wynwood, SoFi, Sunset Harbour, North Miami, Palmetto Bay
    First Class: $28/6:30am (varies by location)
    Shower: No
    This Pilates class will make you shake like you’ve never experienced, but in a good way. Once you hop on the machine there are minimal breaks as you pulse, shake, and burn for 50 minutes. It’s a great way to start the day, tone, and burn.
  3. RedBike Studios
    Location: Aventura, Brickell
    First Class: Free/6am
    Shower: Yes
    Start your day with an exciting cycling class that turns off the lights during class except for the strobe light that is in tune with the music. The playlists are always on point, and often you can catch themed rides at the studio. Be prepared to get a full body workout on the bike.
  4. Sweat440
    Location: South Beach
    First Class: Free/5:50am
    Shower: No
    4 stations, 40 minutes. That’s the motto at Sweat440 as they take you through a revolutionary 40-minute HIIT workout. Everyday is targeted at a different muscle group so you never do the same workouts twice. The beauty here is if you snooze your alarm by accident, you can just hop into the next class because a new one starts every 10 minutes.
  5. Body & Soul Boxing Gym
    Location: Coral Gables
    First Class: Free/6am
    Shower: No
    Be prepared to sweat. This workout is AC free in a warehouse setting and with Miami’s heat you will be drenched by the time you leave. Every class here is done at a HIIT but some classes you’re in the ring, doing legs, partner drills, and they always finish with killer abs. Punch your heart out. 
  1. Glow Hot Yoga
    Location: South Beach
    First Class: Free/ 7am
    Shower: Yes
    If a heated room and a vinyasa flow sound ideal to you than head over to Glow Hot Yoga for a warm start to your day. Hot yoga is an incredible way to detox your body and start the day off fresh. This is a HOT room so wear light/ tight clothing for the most comfortable flow.
  2. SOL Yoga
    Location: Wynwood
    First Class: Week Free/7am
    Shower: Yes
    Flow through your week at Sol Yoga with their intense hot yoga class classes. The studio is heated with infrared lighting not hot air, so you really feel the toxins leaving your body through each breath. The instructors are knowledgeable so don’t fear getting out of your comfort zone.
  1. TruFusion
    Location: Coral Gables
    First Class: Free Day pass/ 6:15am
    Shower: Yes
    The options at Tru Fusion are endless and the classes are often, so if you want to start the morning with the shakes check out their Tru Hot Pilates. For more of a boot camp style class check out their Tru Kettlebell class done in an 80-degree room. All the exercises incorporate full body movements and they are sure to make you sweat.
  2. Barry’s Bootcamp
    Location: Aventura, Midtown, SouthBeach
    First Class: Free/6am

    High intensity = Barry’s. If you enjoy being pushed to your maximum then Barry’s is for you because these instructors don’t take anything but your all. The class is a mix-up of floor and treadmill exercises. If you’re not sprinting on the treadmill, you’re crushing arms or legs depending on the day you go. Every day is different and you will be sore.
