My favorite types of gyms are those with vast empty spaces. It’s the infinite possibility of dynamic, intense and creative workouts that can be made and changed in these very spaces, on a daily basis that I find most thrilling.
Fierce Fit Miami is my kind of gym. Despite its minimalistic appearance, the workouts will have you training at maximum capacity!
Owner, Michelle Bertran, has created high energy training programs that combine elements of high intensity interval training (HIIT), metabolic conditioning, boot camp and plyometric training. These one-hour, full body workouts, change everyday so you continue to challenge yourself!
To break it down, Fierce Fit Miami focuses on helping you do effective workouts using your own bodyweight. I really encourage anyone looking at incorporating a new workout regime into their lives to start with being able to manage their own bodyweight first.
The session I tackled was a 30-minute circuit, broken down into 5-minute intervals. Every 5 minutes I had 3 exercises to do repeatedly, for example; 15 overhead lunges, 10 burpees and a 30 second plank. 10 burpees may sound very manageable but it’s a different story when you’re doing them for 5 minutes!
Bodyweight workouts help you build and gain functional strength, flexibility and endurance. It’s a very good way of getting fit and is excellent for all levels as exercises can be easily modified for anyone.
Michelle has a varied cliental that don’t have age, preference or experience in common, but they do all share the same workout space and are ALL seeing the results!
During your 1-hour session, in addition to a dynamic warm up, cool down and a killer workout (which I absolutely loved and hated simultaneously), you can count on encouragement and support from Michelle who does NOT stop cheering for you!
According to a study published in Psychology of Sport and Exercise, an important factor that was found to create long-term health and fitness success is having a good support system. A lot of people overlook this factor when seeking out new gyms but it can really elevate your workout.
If that isn’t enough, devoted owner Michelle gives her number out to clients just incase they need any guidance outside of the gym. As an example, clients will message her in the grocery store when they are looking for healthy food options.
I’m sure we can all relate to occasions where we’ve planned to go to a gym class but something crops up and we don’t end up prioritizing a workout.
Well, Fierce Fit Miami has a clever app that you can download free of charge. The app allows you to pay, check-in and create a schedule for the sessions you want to attend each week. This is an effective tool for holding members accountable to their schedules. This strategy will definitely make you think twice before cancelling a session at Fierce Fit Miami because Michelle will follow up with your absence!
As your first class at Fierce Fit Miami is completely FREE you have nothing to lose by giving it a try – you won’t be disappointed. Once you consider signing up I would suggest the “Boot Camp” package for $100 a month which includes unlimited monthly classes. If you could manage 12 sessions a month, the equivalent of 3 sessions a week you would be paying $8.30 a session and that’s fantastic value for money!
