The Standard Miami recently reached 500 members in their club. What does this mean? Well, in addition to our many hotel guests, we also have a nice local family in our Miami location that comes to hang out and enjoy our amenities. The eclectic mix of people is part of what makes the space so inviting and brings that fresh vibe of chillness.
And now for the introduction to our next Q&A, one of our many upcoming ones that introduce you to the Standard Members Club.
The Standard: Tell us something about yourself personally and what you do… and how you ended up living in Miami?
We are a husband and wife team - Bibi was born and raised in Miami, a true Miamiera and Alex was born in BAQ, Colombia - often coming to Miami on vacation for many many years. Together, we built Product 81. It is a creative lab based in Miami’s thriving Wynwood Arts District. We are an ever-growing cultural experiment. A platform for expression, creation and growth. All-in-all, we are culture designers.

How would you describe the locals who frequent The Standard and the vibe of the other member, if you happen to know them?
We frequent the Standard quite often - and the vibe of the locals is totally chill and cool. Great place for mingling and networking, for sure.
Would you say you spend most of your time in the Pool? or the Hamam? or the Gym? Explain.
Definitely the pool, but we love the Hamam and Yoga Room for a little R+R.
In terms of mental well-being, healing, and general peace of mind… how would you rate your evolution in this area since becoming a member?
We are healthier, happier and totally chill.
In terms of food — can you tell us your favorite dish by our very own Chef Mark, that you love ordering off our menu?
Love the grilled veggies.
We have lots of different employees but is there one trainer or just staffer that you’d like to give a shout-out to? Someone who is a friendly face that always takes good care of ya?

Take your Workout Outside
There are so many physical activities you can do outside such as going on a hike, playing games with your kids. Also, biking, running, swimming, Kiteboarding, and boot camps are good ways to keep your body guessing and effectively burning more calories. Outdoor activities also are a great way to be active with your kids and get them motivated to exercise early on in their life.

Meet Scott, Memberhip Director at The Standard Miami. Scott Hauser is one of those people you can’t go anywhere with without having to stop to talk to at least 5 people. Scott knows everyone and has more friends than he would care to admit. We think it’s because he’s got such a great, out-going personality. So, just in case you’re one of the few that hasn’t met Scott at The Standard Miami, we would be happy to introduce you!
First off, tell us a bit about your background, and what you do at the Standard?
I graduated from University of Miami in 1987 with a Bachelor’s in Entrepreneurship and got my Master’s in Psychology/Higher Education. I took a small break between the two and worked as an Assistant Manager at a Restaurant called “Bevery Hills Café.” While obtaining my Masters Degree, I became a professor and taught a Psych course at FIU for Freshmen Student while also being a crisis counselor. I left FIU to work shortly for the Shore Club. After a Year as the overnight Manager, I was recruited as a Sales Manager for Golds Gym/ Crunch Fitness and then opened Equinox South Beach in 2005.
Before going from Crunch to Equinox, I had the pleasure of working for The Standard Miami from 2004 – 2005 as the Executive Assistant to David Lemmond prior to The Standard opening. I was extremely excited when the opportunity to rejoin The Standard in 2010 as the Membership Director where I was given the task of developing and creating the membership department. When I came aboard on April 14th 2010 there were 121 active members. I am happy to say that as of today, we have 516 Members here at the Standard Spa, Miami Beach.
What’s your favorite secret spot in Miami?
In between 2nd and 3rd Street Beach. No one knows me or bothers me there. Very quiet and relaxing.
iPhone or Blackberry? What APP do you use the most?
What’s one of your most memorable moments in the building?
When I worked here back in 2004 the offices got closed due to licensing, so the city made us move out of the building within 24 hours. The staff had to move into a house on 15th street where we conducted business for a couple of months.
I spend most of my time thinking about ____________?
Getting a six pack…..stomach not beer!!!!
What was the last song you downloaded?
“S & M” Remix by Rihanna featuring Britney Spears
What is your favorite movie based in a hotel?
How has 2011 treated you so far?
Awesome! Reached some personal goals, including reaching 500+ members, but now need to work on some personal ones…..like finding a soulmate
When you finally break free from work, what is the next awesome place you plan to vacation to?
Going on a 12 day cruise leaving from Rome, going to Turkey, Greece and back to Italy!

As some of you already know, I just spent the past five days at the glorious Standard, Miami, swimming laps in the 80 degree saltwater pool overlooking the bay, getting my shoulders massaged by the 98 degree waterfall and then plunging into an ice cold bath to revitalize my perfect skin. And yes, I did it all without spilling a drop of my martini. It’s not a vacation for the faint of heart.
I would have loved to have seen you there, but unless you were a hotel guest, the chances would have been slim……until now!
