It is the relaxed atmosphere of our beautiful Hamptons villages that prompts residents and visitors alike to commit to a consistent level of physical fitness. Each village has a plethora of choices to keep you fit the entire summer long. Whatever your level or choice of activity, there is a great workout option for you.

Hitting Every Mark

A good workout is made better by how you feel afterwards. Choose an activity that you are drawn to. With one hundred percent participation on your part, you can focus your efforts on gaining flexibility, stamina, muscular endurance and muscular fitness with whatever exercise platform you have an affinity for. Choosing something that you like will also make your commitment nearly effortless.

Spin Your Way to the Max

Bike riding in the Hamptons is a gloriously relaxing activity but when it comes to "stepping it up"; a spinning class raises the bar like nothing else. These classes are guaranteed to burn tons of calories and to sculpt and tone your thighs and butt into "summer ready" shape. A great class will involve your core and upper body as well. Keep with it and you'll increase your stamina tenfold. For some of the best workouts, try SoulCycle (264 Butter Lane, Bridgehampton, 631-537-3630 or 68 Newtown Lane, East Hampton, 631-324-6600, www.soul-cycle.com), Flywheel (65 Montauk Highway Suite C, East Hampton, 631-329-8622 or 1 Bay Street, Sag Harbor, 631-899-4256, flywheelsports.com), B-East RealRyder® Fitness Studio (199 Main Street, Amagansett, 631- 267-0900, www.eastfit.com) and Evolution Fitness (33 Hill Street, Southampton, 631-488-4252, www.evolutionhamptons.com).
