The Hamptons season officially kicks off this weekend, and it’s looking like it’s going to be one for the books. Hit our beaches with confidence with a little prep work at the gym. With endless options including Tracy Anderson, Barry’s Bootcamp, and SoulCycle, there’s no excuse.
For a bit of sartorial motivation start off by heading to Southampton’s newest activewear boutique, Juja Active (38 Jobs Lane). Brand highlights from the store’s offerings include the first collections of Crane & Lion and Track & Bliss, Red Tiger, an Australian brand new to the U.S., Electric & Rose, a husband and wife design team based in Venice, California and many others.
If you find yourself inspired by more brightly colored separates, check out Hamptons favorite Prismsport (Bandier, 44 Main Street, Southampton). The separates are as comfortable as they are eye-catching, and you’ll find fantastic exclusive patterns here on the East End.
Sag Harbor’s newest lifestyle store, Copious Row (27 Washington Street, copiousrow.com) is kicking-off the 2015 season with a Fairchild Baldwin (fairchildbaldwin.com) trunk show Memorial Day weekend. The trunk show, slated for Saturday, May 23 and Sunday, May 24 from 12–6 p.m., will feature items from Fairchild Baldwin’s exclusive line of bags and jewelry. Founders Karen Baldwin and Jill Fairchild, will be onsite to showcase the items.
Forgoing the beach in favor of a backyard barbecue? The East End Mushroom Company recently opened its own shop at 22355 County Road 48 (off Cox Lane) in Cutchogue. You’ve enjoyed their tasty fungi at top East End restaurants including Almond and Topping Rose House, and now you can stock up any time.
Also worth stocking up on are Pasta Chips (King Kullen, 2044 Montauk Highway, Bridgehampton). The snack, made from real pasta, is the perfect munch for someone who wants something healthy (or at least healthier than your classic chip), and tasty. Available in six flavors, all of which have 120 calories and are made from natural ingredients, Pasta Chips have 20% less fat than other pita chips.
After all this munching, work everything off at the new Flywheel pop-up at 33 Hill Street in Southampton. The revolutionary indoor cycling classes, led by amazing New York instructors will host classes seven days a week, through Labor Day. While the studio, boasting 50-plus bikes, won’t feature stadium-style seating, it will still offer the premium FLY experience and include complimentary amenities like shoes, water and towels. Riders will be able to book their bikes for the week online and on the iOS app when the booking window opens on Sundays at 5 p.m. The pop-up location offers ample complimentary parking and will include lockers and showers, allowing riders to get to the beach, pool or brunch very quickly post-ride. Riders will also be able to shop the new Flywheel retail collections.
As the weather gets nicer, take your drink outdoors! The Beach Glass makes drinking on the beach easy, with a design that allows the stem to be pushed into the ground. Perfect for any beverage, the Beach Glass will hold your drink in place. No spills! And, as a bonus, they float, perfect for a hot tub or pool. Find them at Hildreth’s, BottleHampton and at thebeachglass.com.
