Free HIIT Workout in Miami

MIAMI, FLCinderFit, a Miami-based performance fitness brand, will host a community workout featuring its signature range of weighted exercise blocks each month at The Underline Sound Stage and Plaza sponsored by FPL. The monthly workouts powered by Baptist Health will celebrate the intersection between South Florida entrepreneurship, the community’s flourishing parks and open spaces, and the City of Miami’s focus on becoming one of the happiest and healthiest cities in America. Everyone is invited to join the workout, which will be led by certified CinderFit coaches and will include a fun mix of cardio, strength training, and stretching for all skill levels.

CinderFit debuted in June 2022 at The Underline with an event headlined by City of Miami Mayor Francis Suarez. In the words of Mayor Suarez, “Being outdoors and staying active with our community in a beautiful public space like The Underline is one way to check all the boxes of health and happiness in our city. I’m committed to making Miami the best place to live, work, and play in the United States, and workouts with CinderFit support us in that mission.”

Homegrown in a Miami backyard, CinderFit has expanded to become an influential force in the South Florida community with free online exercise resources in addition to its wide range of fitness gear and a gym location in Little River. Cinder blocks have been used since the 1800s for construction, and CinderFit has re-engineered the traditional block into the ultimate workout tool to be used anywhere.

About CinderFit: During the 2020 Covid-19 quarantine, CinderFit founders Takeo Ishii and Felipe Azenha were determined to maintain their exercise routine even though gyms had closed and home fitness equipment was sold out. With some cinder blocks they had in their backyards, the duo discovered the blocks could be used in a variety of different ways. The CinderFit workout was born, and the traditional cinder block was redesigned with high-performance materials. CinderFit’s patent-pending design allows fitness enthusiasts to do 10x more exercises than a dumbbell or kettlebell, providing unrivaled total body strength and cardio training.

About Friends of The Underline: Our mission is to deliver and activate a 120-acre, world-class linear park spanning 10 miles below Miami’s Metrorail that will transform regional mobility and celebrate diversity, culture and lifelong learning. Through innovative urban trails and creative programming, we are connecting people to their environment and each other to create a safe, healthy, equitable, and sustainable community.
