If you’re the kind of person who needs to stay active and fit, even on vacation, you’ve got to check out Beach Fit, the state of the art fitness center at North Beach Plantation. 

Beach Fit isn’t just another hotel fitness room—it’s nearly 4,000 square feet of cardio and strength training equipment in a boutique-style setting, complete with a full group fitness class schedule and men’s and women’s locker rooms where you can freshen up or recharge in our steam rooms.

“When you’re traveling, it can be really nice to have no interruption to your fitness routine. It just makes you feel better while you’re on vacation,” said Eileen DeLaTorre, the spa director of Cinzia Spa at North Beach Plantation, which includes Beach Fit. “And this is really a nice, upscale facility. You can use the equipment or take classes, and all of the classes except private and Pilates sessions are included in your stay.”

Beach Fit is equipped with cardio and strength training equipment by TechnoGym, a leading European brand of fitness equipment that’s not available anywhere else on the Grand Strand. “We also have free weights and a stretching area as well as personal trainers and Pilates instructors on staff who are available every day,” DeLaTorre said.

The Pilates Studio at Beach Fit is run by Steph Kapinos, who was trained by a prestigious first-generation Pilates practitioner in New York. Kapinos has taught classical-style Pilates for more than 15 years. Private and semi-private mat and equipment classes are available. “Steph is really good,” DeLaTorre said. “She has a very strong private clientele in addition to working with guests.” 

Due to the popularity of the staff at Beach Fit, visitors to North Beach Plantation are encouraged to schedule private training sessions and Pilates classes in advance when possible. 

So next time you visit North Beach Plantation, be sure to pack your workout clothes—you’ll love the fitness experience at Beach Fit!
