BARRE YOU READY?
BOUTIQUE FITNESS STUDIO ELEMENTS IS POISED TO BE THIS SEASON’S HOTTEST BARRE.
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
