Cardio In the Clouds

Personalized cardio in the clouds

If you own a residence at Brickell Flatiron, you've got rooftop facilities within elevator distance. The Sky Club, way up on the 64th floor, offers everything you need for a great workout and a (well-deserved) relaxation session afterward.

Lift some weights, take a spin class with a professional trainer, or put a few miles on one of the treadmills at the Sky Gym, letting off steam while you gaze out at the ocean. Whether you’re there before work as the sun rises, or after, as it's setting—there’s nowhere more picturesque to work up a sweat.

When it's time to cool off, slip into the Sky Pool and admire the 360-degree views of Miami and Biscayne Bay; then dry off on one of the poolside daybeds. Refresh and rehydrate at the juice bar before you embark on a hydrotherapy circuit at the Sky Spa—a warm and relaxing treatment, including steam and sauna, followed by bespoke treatments like massages and facials.

But you're not quite finished. The Rooftop Garden provides the pièce de résistance—sip a green tea (or something stronger) and admire Miami from up high. Life is beautiful when you're on top.

 

Conrad

A stone's throw from Brickell Flatiron is the luxurious Conrad. The hotel’s rooftop fitness center comes equipped with a three-lap pool and state-of-the-art cardiovascular machines, but what will excite budding tennis stars the most is the set of rooftop courts. Can't fit in a match during the day? The courts are floodlit—ace!

 

Rooftop pools

Other luxury pools with wow factor include the hydrotherapy pool at Metropolitan by COMO (although what you work off in the pool will be reclaimed by the restaurant’s lobster frittata), Soho Beach House (which has its own private plunge pool), and The Redbury South Beach, where you can practice your front crawl atop an Art Deco building, tucked into a palm-fringed oasis.

 

Pilates on high

In addition to providing a variety of Pilates classes on its sixth floor, Wynwood’s Pilathon can introduce you to the joys of indoor rowing, indoor yoga, and indoor cycling. Passionate instructors will show you around the ultramodern equipment, but it's the views from up high that will stay with you when you’ve finished your workout. And when your muscles demand some relaxation time, treat them to the steambath and sauna.
