Where to Workout in the Hamptons and have FunPosted by Stacy
Part of what makes summering in the Hamptons fantastic, are the number of different workout you can do. The combination of its proximity to NYC and natural beauty lends it self to extraordinary workouts. Lets face it, there are only so many calories you can burn dancing the night away. This list includes some of my favorite and a few I am anxious to try.
Fly Wheel- With locations both in Sag Harbor and East Hampton. this 45 minute ride gets your heart pumping like no other . Its spinning at its finest. The instructors,music and atmosphere rock. The Flywheel indoor cycling ride includes climbs and descents, while working arms with weighted bars. It’s an amazing escape that challenges your body and relaxes your mind.
Barry’s Boot Camp-Kim K loves it and so does Katie Couric. Okay maybe those are reasons not to go. The rumor is you will burn 1000 calories. Called Hollywood best kept secret has been training. Come find out why Barry’s Bootcamp has been voted “The Best Celebrity Workout” by ALLURE, LOS ANGELES MAGAZINE and many others. You will burn 1000 calories in one hour and, most importantly, see and feel results right away!
Intensati- One of my absolute favorites. A mix of martial arts, yoga, aerobics, kickboxing, ,and dance.
IntenSati is the practice of remembering that if you want to live a life you love in a body you love, you must start loving it now! Take Natalia’s class at B East!
Paddle Diva- Every morning a group of mostly women seem to float effortlessly by me on paddle boards. They are rowing, talking an smiling. All while working their core and arm strength. They look they are having a ton of fun. SUP is a great way to spend time with a girlfriend, do a sport and chat the time away. If you get hot, jump in! The boards are very easy to maneuver so you can all go along as a group and enjoy the scenery, the conversation and the amazing work-out!
TRX-TRX CLASSES ROCK @ B EAST for many reasons but one of the most oustanding reasons would be the the amazing, fun, enthusiastic and professional instructors that teach the classes at the studio. All of their instructors are certified and have years of experience working with clients of all fitness levels. One of the main instructors at the studio, William Arrufat is a master TRX instructor which means he is qualified to certify others in TRX training. William’s TRX/CARDIO FUSION was recently voted on of the BEST OF NEW YORK. Whether you are in the studio for your first TRX class or you have taken many classes, you will have a blast while getting in to the best shape of your life! The classes are geared toward all fitness levels.
Yes, they offer straight up TRX training classes but we also incorporate other elements in to the workouts to make them even more functional. B East offers TRX PUNCH! where we incorporate heavy bags and intense cardio in to a circuit TRX workout, we offer TRX/CARDIO FUSION which is a combo of plyometrics and TRX training as well as many other TRX based classes with kettle bells, bosu balls, medicine balls and other equipment.
The staff is friendly, the studio is spotless & fresh and the instructors are among the best in New York.
Tracy Anderson- Gwyneth, Molly and Madonna swear by her and you will too.
Exhale- Always imitated. Never duplicated . Elisabeth Halfpapp and Fred Devito have been lengthening and strengthening their clients for over 20 years.
A toned seat, abdomen thighs and arms is what you will achieve. You will have balanced strength in your legs and back Your posture will improve to produce a beautiful, sexy body. All of this while remaining injury-free due to the latest in exercise science.
It will be tough, you will curse, you will sweat, but the time will fly by with dance-like movements to motivating rhythms, and those oh so sexy movements. Bottom line Exhale kicks you butt !!!!
Mandala Yoga- Yoga studios come and go, but not Mandala. Walk into Mandala and you will be saying OM before you know it. Sweaty, peaceful, challenging, without any pressure or pretense. You don’t always know what you will get. The schedule indicates a rigorous flow class, and you get an Iyengar-esque concentrated movement class. BUT, lovely teachers, near-perfect studio and a wonderful overall feel.
Minardi Training- Jimmy Minardi ‘s boot camp on the beach is not for the faint of heart. Jump hurdles, run the dunes and much, much more. His regimen of Surfer Yoga, Beach Workouts, Vinyassa Weight Training and outdoor Cycling classes get radical results for athletes at every level. When you’re ready to look and feel better than you ever have – you’re ready for Minardi Training. Minardi’s skilled, hands on, full of tough love and he’s intuitive as to what is going to get his client the best fitness results.
Walk the beach-
Don’t just sit there. Get off your chair and walk.The soft sand besides being a treat for the senses, this simple pleasure is actually a very healthy option that adds to the attractions of a beach holiday and can help make up for some of the tempting excesses of local food. To begin with, walking – whether on the sand or elsewhere – can improve blood circulation.
There are beauty benefits, too, as the friction of the sand is a marvellous natural exfoliant. Walking barefoot will result in softer feet in no time.
There’s another benefit to seawater, too, as it contains minerals (iodine and sodium) that help prevent ageing – not to mention the fact that it’s relaxing!
Wet or dry sand? Obviously, if you’re right down at the water’s edge, you’ll be walking on wet sand. This is actually easier and takes less effort. But as you get fitter and start to notice the benefits of the water, you may want to extend your walks farther up the beach where the sand is dryer. Since dry sand is less stable and the shape shifts as you walk, it involves more effort.
