"The first annual Hamptons Wellness Week
is a weeklong community-based celebration of wellness for the body, mind, and soul, from Montauk to Westhampton," noted Kiley Sabatino
and Anastasia Gavalas
, Hamptons Wellness Week Founders. While many may have getting in shape on their list of New Year's resolution, getting started can be challenging. One Healthy Hamptons
is ready to help East End residents get a jump start with their inaugural event.
The duo is extremely excited for the benefit and came up with the idea because they wanted to make nutrition and fitness more accessible throughout the community. Due to an overwhelming response for the debut event, the week full of nutritional education and exercise will be an annual happening. "Hamptons Wellness Week benefits the Wing It Project
and supports local businesses and a healthier 2014 for all," Sabatino told Hamptons.com.
Hamptons Wellness Week will begin on Sunday, January 12, and run through Friday, January 17. Participants can take up to seven fitness classes for $5 at more than 15 fitness studios from Westhampton to Montauk. Participating gyms include Ananda Yoga
