No longer just a destination for sunbathing, late night clubbing and boozy brunch, The Hamptons have become a place where early morning cycling/dance cardio/pilates/yoga, fresh juice and a gluten-free breakfast are downright de rigeur.
Here, a guide to my stay-fit favorites:
The source for post-spin smoothies and juices, plus a selection of natural beauty products, supplements and fresh produce, The Juicy Naam has locations in East Hampton and Sag Harbor.
My friend Laura chose The Moon juice made with Cucumber, Pear, Kale, Lemon and Parsley (left) and I had a I Am Berry Cute smoothie with banana, blueberries, cacao nibs, acai and hemp milk.
Flywheel’s East Hampton studio is smaller, breezier version of the Flatiron location. You’ll find the same packed class offerings (book early, though) and complimentary shoes and water bottles, so, you can just roll out of bed and still enjoy a great class.
Round Swamp Farm is heaven. I could buy (and eat) EVERYTHING here–and, it’s so cute!
A fit girl-meets-foodie’s paradise: fruit and veggies, packaged salads, spreads and homemade sauces galore.
Beautiful freshly-cut sunflowers to brighten your table.
And, THE most amazing berry muffins for breakfast.
Right next door is a farmers market with fresh flowers, olive oils infused with fruits and spices and a must-visit cheese maker. Don’t miss the Chocolate Oat Crunch Cookies by Anke’s Fit Bakery, which are Tracy Anderson’s favorite sweet treat.
Anke’s cookies, snack bars and granola have no refined sugar or wheat flour and are sweetened only with organic maple syrup, agave nectar, raw cane sugar and fruit. Butter is replaced with canola oil. Healthy and happy.
Leave the car at the house and bike, especially in Montauk. Navy Beach is one of my most treasured spots to relax.
Heading east this weekend? Let me know what are your favorites.
