SPA: It’s baaack. Spa month in Miami kicked off July 1 and runs through August 31, which means one thing and one thing only: $99 spa treatments for everyone. Now is the time to set up your plan of attack for sheer bliss at some of the best spas in Miami. This week, we suggest heading down to Canyon Ranch Spa for the 50-minute Marine Facial. For less than $100, submit your visage to a cleansing with the finest seawater and marine extracts from oceans around the world. Or, get heady with the Custom Blend Hair & Scalp Treatment for 80 minutes of soothing scalp regeneration. To see what else Canyon Ranch, as well as other Spa Month participating spas, have to offer, visit GET IT: 6801 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 866.276.2226.

GYM: The Standard is all about keeping you in shape this summer with two fun and fit offerings courtesy of  its Summer Lovin' specials. First up, Fitness Day Getaway ($300) lets you try out a health, yoga or fitness class and then sends you straight to the spa for a selection of treatments. After your workout and reward, head to the haman, the heated marble slab, to bring life back to your freshly used muscles. Or, give Stand-up Paddleboarding ($40, $30 for members) a go in Biscayne Bay. Talking about using your core. This is a workout on the water you soon won’t forget—nor will your abs.
