Living in Miami can drive people to crave that mythical bikini body year-round — after all, summer isn't only three months of the year here. Fad diets and wild weightless solutions aren't the answer when the ultimate goal is keeping off weight. That's where a personal trainer comes in handy. Concept 21 Fitness is tucked away on the second floor of a shopping center on the corner of Ludlam Road and SW Eighth Street. The fitness center is mostly bare yet contains essential items like hand weights and a weight bench. Yanniel Santos, lead personal trainer and owner, employs everything here to get your heart rate pumping. He'll have you run around the parking lot, climb the stairs two at a time, and even do lunges across the hall. Wait until he has you do burpees or jump rope — your legs will feel like jelly after a session. But sooner rather than later, they'll turn into rock. If you've never worked out a day in your life, Santos can help. He'll take it easy on you and build a routine around your strengths and personal goals. Rates are based on availability and frequency of sessions. Call for a personal assessment, and be on your way to a year-round beach body.
