The sun comes up at Jensen Beach and we arise with it. Today is a travel day for all of us. They guys are going to get back on the bikes after a much needed rest and I am going to drive to my next destination – Canyon Ranch in Miami Beach.
I jump in the car and prepare for the short 2 hour drive to Miami. I am going to be staying for 4 nights at Canyon Ranch Resort and Spa and have been looking forward to it for a long time.
The drive takes me directly down Collins Ave – the way to South Beach. The Art Deco architecture is typical Miami – way cool. Canyon Ranch is easy to find – it is directly on the ocean and is a beautiful high rise building. I pull up, the valet takes the car and I don’t plan on seeing it again until I leave.
Canyon Ranch is a wellness/fitness/health mecca. (there is also one in Tucson) There are over 300 fitness/wellness classes per week along with a world class spa and a premium beachfront location. What’s not too love? Once again, thanks to Amex I am upgraded to an Oceanview Suite that is truly sweet.
The bathroom is so large that I almost get lost. It is all decked out on “spa” fashion with a deep soaking tub, fancy shower, dressing table and gorgeous fixtures. I am in love. My television is already on and playing Canyon Ranch news with schedules and description of all there is to offer. It is also personalized…
I have no doubt that I am going to love it here. I quicky peruse today’s schedule and settle on Gyrokenisis for my first class. Here is the description:
Now I am ready for 20-10 Fierce:
My final class of the day will be Restorative Yoga. It is exactly what it sounds like. The instructor is great and tells us that the class is basically a “nap with props.” Loved it.
I don’t know where the day went. I have been on the go since I got here – I just don’t want to miss anything. Too tired to even go down for dinner tonight – room service is ordered and Shark Tank is on television. Does it get any better?
