5 Ways To Beat The Heat!

BY Germaine Benson | July 3, 2017 | Feature

It's scorching out there, but there's no way around summer. Forget staying in. These five suggestions are tailor-made to help you deal with Miami's meanest season.
Indoor rollerskating at the Faena Forum is now a thing every second Sunday of the month.

Water Weight
Let’s face it: Outdoor fitness is just not an option when the thermostat hits a certain point and humidity is at an all-time high. Solution? An in-pool workout at The Confidante Miami Beach. The hotel’s Blue Aqua Bootcamp, led by V Art of Wellness, takes place every Thursday at 10AM and helps participants burn calories with movements that use the water as resistance. The workout includes circuits with medicine balls, underwater boxing, water sprints and core calisthenics. $20 per class, 4041 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.424.1234

Feature Presentation
When the weather outside is frightful (as in rainy, muggy and just plain miserable), a good flick is always an option. And when a regular movie theater just won’t do, CMX The VIP Cinema Experience at Brickell City Centre is the way to go. This state-of-the art theater offers oversized seating far, far away from other patrons, cocktails to suit every taste, a menu of gourmet selections and servers at the ready to cater to your every whim. One visit here and your notion of movie night will forever be altered. $21-$25, 701 S. Miami Ave., Miami, 786.482.2097

Best Face Forward
Refuse to be a victim of unsightly skin this summer. Instead, head to Cyro Miami for a cooling treatment that will quite literally shock your senses. The Cyro Facial is the newest beauty trend to take over and consists of 12 minutes of cold nitrogen vapor directly applied to the skin. The reason? To reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and wrinkles for noticeably clearer, smoother, younger looking skin. $75 per session, 430 S. Dixie Highway, Coral Gables, 305.770.6670

Just Roll With It
Created to bring the community together, the latest art installation at Faena Forum is an interactive rollerskating rink for the public to enjoy. Every second Sunday of the month throughout the summer, guests are invited to grab a pair of skates and participate in the immersive experience led by the contemporary duo ángeles veloces arcanos fugaces. Live performances by local singers and DJs enhance the indoor (air-conditioned) experience. Next one is July 9 from 12 to 7PM. 3398 Collins Ave., Miami Beach

Brain Freeze
While the deck at Lido Bayside Grill at The Standard Spa is bound to be hot this time of year, lunch here is always enticing. One sure way to keep cool is to order a glass or two of Kelvin’s Frozé ($14), a slushy cocktail made with rosé wine (and other alcoholic libations) that will make you forget all about the weather and just enjoy those beautiful bay views. 40 Island Ave., Miami Beach, 786.245.0880
