Ironworks has a new owner and is now called SoBe Sports club. The club has undergone extencive improvements, but keep in mind that the standard in Miami Beach is low. People are willing to pay a lot of money for poor quality, just like in New York. If you want to actually work out, SoBe may be your best bet in Miami Beach. It?s basically two large rooms; weights on the first floor and aerobics on the second. The space on the first floor is utilized well with plenty of room to move around and the machines don?t run into each other when they are being used. The equipment may seem antiquated, but it is well maintained. People are personable, but they are there to workout. You might still run into the occasional boy on a cell phone. If you do, just push him out of the way. I would strongly advise not to pay a year in advance. Nothing in Mia mi Beach, including this gym, is stable. Just pay a month or two in advance, and you won?t lose any money if the gym closes without notice, the way other gyms have.
Pros: good energy, well maintained
