The Best Outdoor Workouts in Miami are in Surfside

By: Surfside Mar 12, 2020


Most people choose to visit Surfside because they enjoy the mile-long stretch of aqua-blue Atlantic Ocean and the relaxed pace that is unique to the Town. It’s the perfect beach town that has plenty of ways to get fit outdoors so you can maximize your time while here. Ditch the that treadmill and take your workout outside at any one of these locations, depending on what your exercise of choice may be. 


 Beachside Jogging or Cycling

For anyone who likes to run, the obvious luxury is a jog on the beach. There’s nothing like your sneakers hitting the soft sand with a priceless view. In fact, fitness gurus suggest running on the beach for an added challenge. You’ll feel the difference in your calves the next day compared to those regular pavement or treadmill runs. There’s also an oceanfront path that local bicyclists, walkers, and joggers all enjoy regularly. It runs from 87th Terrace to 96th Street, offering views of the natural beauty of Surfside’s beach contrasted with the stunning architecture that lines Collins Avenue. For those who want to go cycling, visitors can rent a Citi Bike from any of the four stations located off Collins Avenue from 88th Street to 96th Street.


Play a Game of Tennis

If tennis is your game, you’ll want to hit the courts at the Surfside Tennis Center. Surrounded by lush palm trees, it’s a unique place to swing a racket while in town. Even if you’re not a pro, they offer a variety of tennis clinics for adults and children, as well as tennis instruction. The courts are open daily from 8am to 10pm, and located at 87th Street is just a short walk from most hotels and other local attractions. The best part: after breaking a sweat playing doubles, you can cool down afterwards with a jump in the ocean. What’s not to love about that?

Swim Laps

Swimmers who are looking to keep their workout underwater can enjoy the lap lanes at the Surfside Community Center pool. The expansive center has a variety of outdoor amenities for the whole family to enjoy including a plunge pool, serpentine slide, children’s activity pool, and jacuzzi. Suit up in the locker room and make a day of it with plenty of ways to stay active and burn some calories. If you’re a Surfside hotel guest, be sure to get in on the action – your admission is free with proof of stay. Refuel afterwards at Surf N’ Sides, the onsite snack bar and grill.

No matter what fitness activity you choose, being outdoors basking in the beauty of Surfside makes it all the more fun and enjoyable.
