Even though the Hamptons is one of the most indulgent summer escapes from New York City's fast paced rat race, it certainly doesn't have to be an escape from your fast paced workouts! Sure, the Hamptons is filled with shopping, sunning, eating, and drinking, but there are plenty of equally indulgent fitness classes to give balance to your summer vacation. Here are just a few of our favorites that will keep you moving and sweating - in between all of those other indulgences, of course.
Improve strength and flexibility in the Hamptons branch of Uptown Pilates. Uptown Pilates's well-trained instructors are committed to working on their clients' forms using the Authentic Pilates Method(TM) in this serene studio offering mat and tower classes.
Located in the heart of Bridgehampton, Exhale offers their wildly popular ballet-inspired Core Fusion barre classes, designed to give you chiseled abs, toned legs, cut arms, and a high, lifted butt. The studio also features a wellness boutique with the best in fitness apparel, allowing you to partake in the shopping indulgence right along with the fitness indulgence.
Kama Deva Yoga's once small studio has grown immensely since it opened in East Hampton in 2009. This family-centric studio offers classes for an array of specialized groups - including kids, teens, pregnant women, and injured yogis - and even offers the summer favorite, Jessica Bellofotto's SUP Yoga combining traditional yoga postures with the added fun of floating on a stand up paddleboard so you can take your workout outside.
