Montauk Health & Beauty
Seawater Spa at Gurney’s
290 Old Montauk Hwy., Montauk
This resort on a prime stretch of Montauk coast underwent a total renovation in 2014, which included a reimagining of the spa and the restoration of the Olympic-sized saltwater swimming pool, which uses sand-filtered water drawn from the sea. A Finnish-style sauna was also added, where guests can pour aromatherapy-enhanced water over hot stones, and there’s also a eucalyptus oil-infused steam room. Set at 120 degrees and 100 percent humidity, a few minutes here is meant to help the body release impurities through sweating. As one of the only places open year-round, it’s an ideal off-season getaway, too.
Bari Studio (Closed)
183 Edgemere St., Montauk
Based in Tribeca, the Bari Studio is known for workouts that people actually want to go to (thanks to sessions that incorporate everything from dance moves to trampolines). And this summer, the postcard-perfect outdoor deck of Montauk’s Surf Lodge is hosting Bari’s popular sculpt class, a low-impact workout using hanging resistance bands and “Bari balls” (inflatable rubber spheres) that together target all the major muscle groups. Afterward, grab a lobster roll (you’ve earned it) at the Surf Lodge’s restaurant, which overlooks Fort Pond and, in the distance, the Atlantic.
New York Pilates
649 Montauk Hwy., Montauk
New York Pilates has a cult following in the city, so it was only a matter of time before they made it to the Hamptons. The space (inside an old-school building covered in weathered shingles) is a major part of the appeal—from their private patio, you can see both the ocean and the pond, and they're opening it up for private events for the summer, too. There are fourteen reformers, so it's actually not so difficult to get into a class.
83 S. Elmwood Ave., Montauk
Two savvy New Yorkers–one an ex Broadway dancer, the other a former Wall Street executive–opened this light-filled studio. We like their ethos: to encourage connection and fun during each practice. A welcome addition to Montauk's wellness community
Tracy Anderson (Closed)
32 Star Island Rd., Montauk
TA has year-round studios in East Hampton and Water Mill, but for the first time, Tracy Anderson Method classes will be offered on the far end of the island, too, with a pop-up studio at the Montauk Yacht Club Resort & Marina that’s open eight weeks this summer, beginning July 1st. You don’t need a membership for group classes here (they're $45 each), and you can also can sign up for private training sessions. P.S. For the ultimate TA experience, check out the two viTAlity weeks she's doing in the Hamptons this summer.
Love Yoga Montauk (Closed)
83 S. Elmwood Ave., Montauk
Montauk’s health-conscious flock to Love for surf lessons and daily yoga (morning, noon, and evening). This summer, the "Get Really Good" package sounds like the ideal way to get in shape if you’re staying for the season: It’s a combo deal of 10 yoga classes and 10 surf lessons. There's also a location in Venice.
