Local fitness centers and trainers turn this glorious landscape into a gym. Equinox Fitness Club offers a free beach volleyball class each Saturday morning. You don’t have to be a member of the gym or have any volleyball experience to play.
“You work your whole body in volleyball, especially your core, legs, arms, and shoulders,” says instructor Weyni Johnson. He adds that anyone can play and explains that sand results in less stress on the knees than indoor volleyball courts. Passersby are encouraged to participate.
Equinox Beach Volleyball Class: Eighth Street and Ocean Drive Volleyball Courts; (305) 673-1172. When: 10-11:30 a.m. Saturdays.
