The Fhitting Room has made it to the Hamptons. Instructors from the NYC boutique fitness studio, including Eric Salvador and Daury Dross, will be taking part in the FITiST Collective program at East Hampton’s own Summer Kicks exercise studio.
The boutique studio operates out of East Hampton’s Summer Kicks studio from July 1 through Labor Day.
The Fhitting Room specializes in High Intensity Training and offers a variety of classes based on using each person’s own body weight as resistance. Classes feature instructor-favorite tools like kettle bells, dumbbells, medicine balls, plyo boxes and rowing machines.
High Intensity Training involves performing all-out, exhaustive physical activities for a short time followed by a short, sometimes active, recovery period. Because burning fat requires oxygen, the physicality required in HIT translates to more oxygen getting inside the body and more fat burning.
The High Intensity Training techniques created by The Fhitting Room have been featured in magazines like Cosmopolitan, The Wall Street Journal and Vogue, among others.
The boutique was created by Harvard alum Kari Saitowitz in 2002.
This is the first summer that the FITiST Collective will take place in the Hamptons.
According to their mission statement, the FITiST Collective aims to “gather the best of the best in fitness under one roof” by offering a schedule of workout classes led by all-star instructors from NYC and LA.
Summer Kicks, the studio hosting the FITiST Collective program this summer, was founded in 1988 at the United Methodist Church in East Hampton. It is the longest-running fitness studio in the Eastern United States.
The FITiST Collective at Summer Kicks is located behind Villa Italian Specialties at 5 Railroad Avenue across from the East Hampton train station.
