Although “Get fit for winter!” doesn’t ignite the same urgency to exercise as “work on your beach bod,” there’s no need to take a hiatus from keeping in shape for an entire season. Luckily, the East End has got you covered. Though working out outdoors is entirely possible—head to the beach on the most blustery winter day, and you’re guaranteed to see diehard surfers taking advantage of the empty waves—indoor studios are often people’s preference. There are a number of gyms and studios open year-round. Staying home during the cold may be tempting, but there are plenty of reasons to head out there! Set a goal, and get ready to sweat through the winter.
