6 Hamptons Workouts That Will Make You Actually Want to Go to the Gym
Hopefully by now you’ve secured the perfect summer home, know all the new restaurants to try and have mapped out the shortest path to the beach. Then there’s the pesky matter of squeezing in time to work out, since apparently carrying three bottles of rosé back from the grocery store doesn’t count. Fortunately, the Hamptons is full of studios that make vacation fitness as painless as possible. Here, the best gyms across the East End (including one that comes to you).
The original full-body workout, tennis works your core, legs and arms while giving you a strong dose of cardio. (And we’ll take any excuse to emulate Serena Williams.) New to Amagansett this summer, 27tennis is a “tennis club for everyone” with five courts, private and group lessons for kids and adults, open court time, summer camp, and junior and adult leagues.

A favorite among celebs including Kelly Ripa, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kirsten Dunst, East Hampton’s Elements Fitness offers several of its signature classes in 25-minute express versions, including the high-intensity Sweaty AF and the barre/Pilataes hybrid Toned AF.
