Sculpt your body with FlyBarre in Miami Beach


If you go

FlyBarre, 1919 Purdy Ave. Miami Beach; 305-763-8227.


The lowdown: The latest workout craze to hit the sizzling sands of SoBe? FlyBarre.

Think total body sculpting class blending lightweight training, dance and core strengthening exercises.

The hood: FlyBarre is located on the second floor of tricked-out Flywheel Sports, which is nestled alongside the on-the-up-and-up Purdy Avenue.

The vibe: Each 45-minute class ($25 each) is a fast-paced, high energy sculpting session systematically working each muscle group through a sequence of focused movements, or “pulses.” While the specific moves change frequently, every class is designed to target the arm, abdominal, thigh and seat regions. The entire body will tighten and lengthen, but the most immediate noticeable changes are generally seen in the arms and core.

Did we mention the beats are meticulously selected by in-house DJ Scott Melker? Yes, they are.

Workout tip: Sport a fitted top and fitted pants. You can choose to wear socks with grips at the bottom, or opt for going barefoot. You can also register in advance online at http://florida.flywheelsports.com/locations/miami-beach

The extras: The studio is equipped with showers and full amenities and every FlyBarre class comes with towels, water, weights, resistance bands, therapy balls and other props used in class — making this workout both mindless and convenient.

The long, lean dancer’s body is the bighearted added bonus.

    Ask Nancy: My mother won’t listen to her doctors

    Q. My sister and I are constantly taking my 86-year-old mother to the doctor for her real and/or imagined problems and the doctor will make suggestions or prescribe treatments. She either disagrees with what the doctor says and requests to see a different doctor, or decides that she doesn’t want to do the treatment or take the medicine. How do we get her to comply with what the doctors prescribe?
