Happy April everyone! I have teamed up with the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau for Sports and Wellness Month here in sunny Miami, FL! Living the Taylor Walker Fit lifestyle is all about living a balanced life, and for many of you who have been following my journey know that I live by the motto : “Eat the burger, do the sit up’s and live the happy-healthy life you deserve. ”.
While doing my Master’s Degree, I spent a lot of time studying “lifetime activities”. A lifetime activity is a game or sport that is low impact, enjoyable and can be done for the majority of ones life. And for those of you who are wondering, yes, I got college credit for learning and playing golf, tennis, pickle ball, hiking, biking and more! Not only were they some of my favorite classes, but I came to realize that you can easily work up a sweat without lifting a dumbbell, and guess what? It can also be tons of fun!
Living in Miami, we have the benefit of being able to enjoy the great outdoors 365 days a year and I hope today’s post will encourage you to explore our city, and find ways to fit in fitness and wellness this April. It does not matter if you are a full-time resident or only visiting us for a little while, #MiamiSports Month has something for everyone.
Today, I am here to highlight some of the top activities you can do to work up a sweat and have a blast while doing it, here…on beautiful South Beach and Biscayne Bay! Even if you are only visiting the sunshine state for a little while you can enjoy a plethora of happenings that put the ACTIVE in activity!
Citi Bikes: Explore South Beach by Bike! You can ride on the beach bike path and enjoy fellow runners, families and strollers. My favorite time to ride is early morning right after the sun begins to rise. Simply pay for a bike at a kiosk, ride and return to one of many locations all over South Beach. If you are a local, riding a bike can be much more convenient to run errands than your car. So next time you skip the gym, consider a CITI bike to make your Whole Foods run or head down to South Pointe park and enjoy a water front view bubbling over with beauty all around you!
Beach Volleyball: With Model Volleyball behind us 8th and Ocean is still the place to be in South Beach. Grab a court, a group of friends and set, bump, spike your way to a better body! The courts are all sand, in pristine condition and are in a prime time location for people watching and a post-sweat meal.
Aqua Jet: It’s a bird…It’s a plane…no it’s just Taylor in a red helmet being shot out of the water with aqua boots! Aqua-Jet Miami was our third and final stop of the day. If you are into adventure of any kind then you must spend a day on the water. My husband and I are boaters and paddle boarders, and are out on the water every weekend; however, Aqua Jet was a completely different challenge all in itself. We started at the marina and took a catamaran to a private, pristine little island where I was greeted by my teacher and shallow water. From there, I was taught the ropes and taken offshore. There was no one in sight, and I was a bit nervous to start, but my teacher and friends from the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau’s encouragement and support eased all of my fears. It took a few tries, but before I knew it I was propelled in the air and was literally walking on water!
Yes, I bit the dust a few times. No, it was not easy, but it brought out my competitive spirit and before I knew it I found success. Knees locked, horizon in sight. All in all a great day! If you are looking for adventure and “vitamin sea” then I suggest you book your spot with Aqua Jet Miami today!
See our adventure come alive in today’s video above, and if you happen to hop on a Citi Bike, play volleyball on Ocean Drive or strap on aqua boots make sure to let us know on Facebook: @Visitmiami, Twitter & Instagram: @MiamiandBeaches, and make sure to use the hashtag #MiamiSports! A special thanks to the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau for having me!
Happy #MiamiSports Month everyone! I’ll see you on the beach.
