Bou­tique fit­ness stu­dio El­e­ments is poised to be this sea­son’s hottest barre.

For An­drea Fornarola, founder of El­e­ments Fit­ness, lux­ury means per­son­al­iza­tion. Her barre-cen­tered bou­tique stu­dio aims to up­end the one-size-fits-all ap­proach to ex­er­cise. “We re­move the un­re­fined el­e­ments of bou­tique fit­ness. We do a full as­sess­ment of new clients and know what their goals are be­fore they start a work­out plan,” says Fornarola.

This sum­mer, El­e­ments takes Fornarola one huge step closer to re­al­iz­ing her goal. They’ve opened a new 550-square-foot space for pri­vate train­ing. “We have a big pri­vate-train­ing fol­low­ing that we can now ac­com­mo­date in-stu­dio on their own sched­ules,” says Fornarola. The ben­e­fits of in-stu­dio pri­vate train­ing are many, she says. The El­e­ments barre method, de­signed by Fornarola, re­quires bands, weights, and bal­let bar­res— some­thing not typ­i­cally avail­able in most homes. And, she adds, work­ing out away from home makes that time more restora­tive. “It’s just nice to get away.”

Also new is an ad­vanced take on the sig­na­ture El­e­ments class. “It takes barre to the next level. It’s non­stop con­di­tion­ing,” Fornarola ex­plains. For ded­i­cated barre en­thu­si­asts who can’t get to the stu­dio, El­e­ments is launch­ing a stream­ing ser­vice this sum­mer. “We’re in the process of ex­pand­ing to New York, but we get peo­ple from all over. And soon they’ll be able to take the El­e­ments ex­pe­ri­ence back with them,” she says. 66 New­town Lane, East Hamp­ton, 631-604-5445; el­e­ments­fit­ness stu­dio.com
