There are still a few weekends left this summer to head out East to enjoy the beach, fresh seafood and chic pool parties the Hamtpons has always been known for. In between all of your seaside indulging, make sure to check out The Bradford Method in East Hampton, one of this season's newest - and best - fitness classes.
The Bradford Method was started in New York City by former professional dancer and Pilates instructor Shonda Bradford, focusing on the needs of individual clients in the comfort of one-on-one sessions. Shonda is the first and only owner of the Garuda in the U.S., a special piece of equipment used to strengthen and train her clients for serious results. Combining traditional Pilates, dance and her own techniques, Shonda will have you working muscles you didn’t realize you could reach. During my afternoon press trip, she had us stretching, strengthening and stabilizing our bodies like none of us had done before in any other boutique fitness environment! Shonda's encouraging words and warm personality helped us to make it through the challenging class.
(Who wouldn't want to workout under beautiful chandeliers?)
This East Hampton studio is her first space where she’ll be teaching small group sessions of the Bradford Method, as well as an upbeat “Barre Class with a Bounce” for a fun cardio workout with mini trampolines. Shonda has an all around healthy attitude about fitness and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. She's got great advice to give any first time or devoted clients on eating well and getting the best benefits out of your workouts. Treat yourself on your next Hamptons weekend - or play hooky during the week - and book a semiprivate, private or Trampoline Barre class now!
