By Regina Kravitz, Fitness/Wellness reporter EastHampton.com
By now, everyone is well aware of the huge amount of on-line fitness, meditation, exercises and health advise available via You Tube, Zoom, Instagram, Facebook, websites. You can try all sorts of new programs and methods for little or no money, from the comfort of your own home….but why not go local and support the many small fitness studios, gyms and devoted pros who work hard to keep you fit and in shape and not just in the summer.
They are also highly challenged to survive during the shutdown and hopefully when our society opens up…. (in time for great summer bodies) you will become a loyal client!
Here is list of generous, supportive studios in your own backyard.
Tracy Anderson is the hugely popular studio conditioning with venues all over. The large facility on Montauk Highway in Bridgehampton is hugely popular with the summer community and those in the know. Classes range from beginner to advanced and they are not easy. The method also offers on line training with a devoted community. You can access a 2-week free trial at www: tracy.anderson.com/onlinestudio.
BB with 3 locations in Wainscott, Amagansett and South Hampton is another favorite Manhattan entrant to the hot Hampton’s fitness scene and Barry’s workout is guaranteed to raise your temperature. An early entry into the rigorous bootcamp fervor, this workout is not for the faint of the heart but you will burn calories you might have accumulated from frequent refrigerator trips during the quarantine Barry’s Bootcamp boasts beautiful bodies!! I couldn’t resist the BBBB alliteration. Check their complimentary class out on Instagram: @Barry’s
