Fitness Together is more than the name of a relatively new personal training concept in South Miami (and Coconut Grove, too) – it is a philosophy, a mission statement, a business plan built around the idea of one client, one trainer, one goal. I spent my most recent CEO Work Day there under the tutelage of Scott Baumann, fitness and business development guru for Fitness Together!

While no one was naïve (or risky or crazy) enough to have me work with actual live clients, Scott and his team put together a personal work-out plan where I could “train” Angelo (an FIU student and personal trainer) during my shift at Fitness Together. Angelo, of course, is already in amazing shape (I think the term is ripped!) and was seeking an even more defined beach body (me too, but more orca-esque!).

First off, the location is perfect for Fitness Together’s philosophy of 1 Client, 1 Trainer, 1 Goal. It is an intimate location located on the ground floor of a parking garage in South Miami – easily accessible from US 1 and Sunset Drive (5829 SW 73rd Street, South Miami, 305-446-3665). Plus, there is plenty of parking and the studio is not replete with those vast open spaces where overly-made-up members pretend to be working out while they ogle you.

If your goal is privacy and highly structured workouts with a trainer, this is the place for you. If you are serious about your fitness and don’t want the distractions of a more social gym, this is truly the place for you. And, if you want to get your butt kicked, one-on-one, by the best in the business, then this is the place for you!

Angelo and I started by using the medicine ball (3kg) to stretch and warm-up – up and down, side to side, diagonal across the body in both directions. I actually participated with him on this little ditty and broke a sweat immediately as if I had been driving 1000 head of cattle across the great plains during a heat wave.

Next up were the sit-ups, squats and push-ups (I passed on these – imagine that). Now, I was personally not built for these little fun activity morsels, but Angelo took to them like a champ and made sure I was fully aware of his prowess. I was comfortable offering words of encouragement while he worked out, motivational moments I call them, and little reminders that you are never going to get a beach body doing squats like that!

Then it was on to the punching bag –60 seconds of pure adrenaline being infused with rapid fire strokes into a bag that looked oddly like my face. Then the treadmill for a quick run (I tried this, too, but at more of a trotting speed) to make sure Angelo’s heart rate was in the maximum range set forth by his “real” trainers. Finally, we concluded with some weight work and jumping rope (yes, like they do on the playgrounds)…only to be repeated in full two more times.

After our 45 minutes of work-out bliss (and it was fantastic!), it was time to take stock of our collective physical success and learn more about the business. And catch our breath.

I was impressed with the pristine facilities, the one-on-one care and concern for each client, as well as the feeling that you are the most important person in the room while you are there working out. While this experience is not for all, especially if you see fitness as a more social activity, the results are impressive and cannot be denied. And if you desire privacy and a truly focused work-out, Fitness Together provides just that – 1 client, 1 trainer, 1 goal.
