If you’ve been lucky enough to book a shore stay this summer, there are plenty of opportunities to keep moving that don’t involve running miles on the sand (though, there’s nothing stopping you from doing that too). Whether you prefer to be in a studio or socially distanced outdoors, there are classes for every type of fitness buff and some to cater to every level of comfort.
Avalon jams so many class offerings into their studio that some spill out to the boardwalk or beach. Classes range from barre to HIIT to athlete agility training. Classes are sold in packs, or you can purchase an unlimited season pass. 3206 Dune Drive, Avalon.
Avalon Surf Camp
Don’t sleep on the benefits of surfing. From paddling to balancing on the board, you can get a full body cardiovascular workout. You also don’t have to venture to Hawaii’s North Shore to learn. Avalon offers private and semi-private lessons and camps led by instructors with years of experience surfing around the world. Classes are offered for adults and kids. 12th Street Beach, Avalon.
Sol Luna Yoga
Sol promises a non-competitive environment for their yoga sessions, whether you’re tuning in on Zoom or showing up in studio — and that promise isn’t just for grown ups. They also offer fun kids classes that include games and age-appropriate mindfulness exercises. 2819 Dune Drive, Avalon.
Diamond Barre Fitness
Diamond Barre is in northern Ocean City, and it’s just minutes from the sand. Classes are held in the mornings with one evening class daily during the week, with in-studio options and some right on the beach. For those with a summer rental, the studio is offering weekly, monthly, and summer-long membership options. 750 Asbury Avenue, Ocean City.
Row and Flow is the only rowing studio at the Jersey Shore, and it’s a unique one that also offers yoga classes and rowing/yoga hybrid classes. New clients can get 20 percent off of their first month. 225 West Avenue, Ocean City.
Yoga Ginger promises a free-spirited ambiance and classes for every body in their heated studio. Their offerings include slow flow and yoga sculpt. No pre-sign ups are required, just show up with your mat and towel. 717 Asbury Avenue, Ocean City.
Sea Isle City
NJ Beach Yoga
You never have to worry about not having a spot in class when it takes place on the beach, and all of NJ’s classes are held on JFK Blvd Beach. No walk-ins are accepted so register ahead online. 300 JFK Boulevard, Sea Isle City.
Stride Spin and Fitness
This studio offers pre-brunch classes, as well as occasional late afternoon ones, if you prefer to work out before hitting happy hour. There are 30 minute and 45 minute options. Spinnaker North Tower, 3500 Boardwalk, Sea Isle City.
Bayside Fitness Club
Bayside is open 24/7, and it’s got a fully equipped open gym with group fitness classes. Walk out the back door, and you’re right on the bay, where you can take a paddleboard yoga class. 365 96th Street, Stone Harbor.
Shape Fitness and Wellness Studios
Shape offers a host of classes (including barre, yoga and Pilates), plus therapeutic massage (from Swedish to Sports Massage), sport specific training, and nutrition counseling. 9407 2nd Avenue, Stone Harbor.
