With 2020 came a new way of life, one with masks, social distancing, and lots of handwashing. Many businesses, including gyms, had to completely reinvent themselves, often incorporating outdoor workouts into their class format. Here are five South Florida gyms that have added outdoor workouts to their programming.
Barry’s now offers outdoor classes several times a day at all of their locations. The outdoor areas will vary depending on which studio you are attending, while restrooms and parking are available at all locations. The classes are 50 minutes utilizing a combination of both weights and bands mixed with cardio. Each bench is spaced 6 ft apart and masks are not required during the workout. Barry’s provides all equipment, including headphones for a fun silent disco. They also offer their famous Fuel Bar for your post-class smoothie. All classes can be booked online or through their app.

One of the highlights of ADAPT is that the facility has a massive bay door that opens the 22 thousand square foot facility to the outside, circulating fresh air into the gym at all times. They also have a large outdoor turf making it seamless for members to take part in group classes, personal training, and daily workouts outside by offering full utilization of our equipment outside.
The ADAPT trainers have specially programmed each class to be done both outside and inside. They constantly rotate between the facility and turf to ensure one-on-one attention is given to everyone attending each group class.
