Summer is almost upon us and I’m so excited to get out enjoy all of the exciting things to do in the sun. As many of you probably already know, I’m a Tracy Anderson devotee – I even dropped ten pounds on her detox program in the Hamptons last summer and danced my butt off doing it. I also enjoyed several classes at Barry’s Bootcamp with my husband. It was one of the most unique and challenging workouts I’ve ever had in one hour. – It will leave you breathless! This year, I’m dying to try yoga paddleboards.
There are is such a variety of exciting places to stay active while you’re in the Hamptons this summer. Here are my favorite fitness hotspots to keep you in shape and having fun all summer long!
