We’ll be heading out east for the summer soon and getting my workouts all planned out is something I am excited for! I have my favorite workout routines and trainers in the city and I’ve been working hard to find some great spots in the Hamptons. There are a lot of factors that go into the perfect exercise spots- we need some flexibility for our busy schedules between work and the kids’ camp, routines that not only give great results, but are also fun and a great price. Results and good endorphins are what I look for!
These are the best workouts in the Hamptons to get your sweat on this summer:
You already know I have to start with a personal favorite! This is one of the most fun workouts I’ve ever done! It’s basically a dance class but they have moves that really help sculpt your body. They have a variety of classes to choose from, that range from quick 30 minute sessions to sculpting classes, there is a program for everyone! DanceBody also gives you a virtual option and they live stream classes 7 days a week. The prices are great and the workout is even better! Grab friends and go sweat! Check out my 30 day challenge with them here!
Secondly, this is the best option for everyone because it’s online! Bande is a boutique fitness business that has over 100 live virtual classes each week! They have a variety of classes to choose from like cardio sculpt or dance, pilates, kickboxing, HIIT, barre and yoga. Bande gives you a complete studio experience at home and all classes are interactive, so you can chat with people or ask your instructor questions. They offer a few different membership options or you could pay a drop in rate of $15/class, which I think is great. You can’t beat their prices! Another fun thing is they have in person classes in the Hamptons during the summer for anyone interested.
Thirdly, I absolutely love this workout because it focuses on functional movement and all of their moves imitate how our bodies move in real life situations. There’s no more joint pain after exercising! They use resistance based equipment and integrate it with active joint movement to strengthen your muscles. No more worries about shin splints or overly sore muscles. The sets involve you rotating all around to support any way your body could move that day. P.volve has several different class formats, membership plans and offer personal training sessions. With locations in New York, LA, Chicago and virtual options, this could be great for everyone!
This is a tough workout! Kiki is a barre teacher who creates workouts that target underused muscles. Another great workout to ensure your muscles are being properly used. She is fun and is in the Hamptons in the summers teaching classes! Her routines will work out your core, improve posture and flexibility all while giving you lean muscles. You can book a private session or join a socially distanced class. She has virtual classes and in person options. This is a great workout that will leave you feeling so accomplished afterwards!
SLT stands for strengthening your core, lengthening your limits and toning your body. The workouts focus on controlled movements, counter-resistance and slow-twitch muscle fibers for lengthy endurance. SLT offers different levels of classes so you can work your way through difficulty levels. It’s a popular fitness location and they have tons of locations to choose from. There are studios all over NYC, East and South Hampton and others on the east coast. This will be the best sweat of your life!
One of my absolute favorite workouts is SoulCycle. I feel like I get an amazing workout all while having fun. The instructors make the classes feel like you’re just there working out with friends. They pride themselves on having instructors who take the classes through an inspirational and meditative journey– and they definitely live up to that. They have the rooms dark and music playing that pumps you up. The entire experience makes you feel like the main character in your life! You need special shoes for the bikes which you can rent from them for $3 or bring your own that are compatible with their bikes. You purchase classes either one at a time or up to 50! If you’re looking for a fun workout to bring friends to, this is it! And they are all over the country, so if you’re not in the Hamptons this summer you can find one near you.
Moreover, another great virtual option is Openfit! They offer endless on demand workouts with phenomenal trainers and they have the best prices I have ever seen. They are now on BODi and it’s a pretty low price monthly for these classes! With choices like 4 week focus, sound meditation, xtend barre and beginner pilates, this app has something for everyone. Additionally, they offer an in app nutrition tracker for anyone interested. You’ve gotta check them out!
If you haven’t heard of Tracy Anderson, let me tell you, you’re about to obsessed. Tracy has a personal connection to fitness and has done a ton of research to be able to help everyone, regardless of their body types, genetic backgrounds and hormonal imbalances to create complete balance in the body. I always like when it’s more than a workout, but nutritional value and hormones taken into consideration. She’s worked with celebrities and everyone has access to her routines and recipes. Tracy has a dancer background and used that to kickstart her fitness business that not only focuses on physical health, but mental, as well. You can also take her virtual classes with several levels to choose from and payment plans, so they are available to everyone!

They aim to create a stronger work/life balance through healthy lifestyle choices and they do a great job at it.

This is an important one! Stretching, especially before/after workouts is important and often overlooked. Stretch’d is a place that offers one on one assisted stretch sessions. Not only will this help you perform better, avoid injuries and recover quickly, but it can also help to de-stress you. All of the sessions are customized and they do the stretching for you! You can go to their locations in NYC, Rye Brook and the Hamptons, they can come to you anywhere in NYC, the Hamptons and Westchester or you can do a virtual session with an expert and they can help instruct you on special stretching moves just for you.
