5 Places to Get Fit in the Hamptons

The Hamptons social scene? Legendary. Beaches? Same. But, perhaps unbeknownst to the casual tabloid reader who likely thinks Long Island is in the Hamptons, the sunlight isn’t the only thing that has visitors feeling the burn this time of year. Hamptons fitness studios and pop-ups help people maintain their swimsuit body, rosé-induced trips to Ditch Witch be damned.

Elements, East Hampton


Shake, plié and blast rolls. Andrea Fornarola Hunsberger’s personal touch and challenging but upbeat workouts made Elements Fitness Studio an almost overnight success in 2014. Never one to plateau, she’s added new classes to the schedule this year, including an advanced format Elements Barre Class that doesn’t break for recovery until the cool down. People can also catch Elements at The End, where instructors will be giving morning poolside workouts at Montauk Beach House. Phone: 631-604-5445 | Address: 68 Newtown Lane, Suite 6 Click to burn

Minardi Training, Various locations

Summer is a three-month thing around here, and it’s made to be spent outdoors. Minardi Training founder Jimmy Minardi, a former professional cyclist, foregoes the studio in favor of open-air workouts. On Tuesdays and Saturdays at 9am, he and his clients hit famed Main Beach in East Hampton for 75 minutes of agility and high intensity intervals. A dip in the ocean after? Totally deserved. Minardi also offers cycling, surfer yoga and personal training. Phone: 631-680-3000 Click to burn

Two stories, 3,000 square feet, an advanced sound system, a bar with organic juices…would you expect anything less than from the East Hampton location of the woman known for keeping Gwenyth Paltrow in shape? The celebrity fitness guru, who also owns a smaller space in Water Mill (don’t worry, there’s still a sound system and organic juice), opened her East Hampton studio in 2015. High-calorie burning dance cardio class TAva is a new addition to the schedule and it’s inspired by Anderson’s long-standing client Jennifer Lopez. Don’t be shy about getting on the floor if you don’t have dance experience—it’s not necessary to sweat it out.
