Enjoying barbecues, ice-cream cones, and frozen margaritas while staying svelte for beach time is the classic summer Catch-22. Especially in the Hamptons, which is likely more than a hundred miles from the specter of your gym or disciplinarian trainer. Worry not: New York is here to help you out. When reserving a class at the following studios before July 28, mention these deals, and bring a copy of the page when you arrive. (Note: page must be from New York’s magazine, not the Website.) All offers are valid for first-time clients only; one discount per customer.

Fred DeVito and Elisabeth Halfpapp, former vice-presidents of Lotte Berk Method, now teach a new one-hour class they’re calling Core Fusion. Their method mixes Pilates, yoga, core conditioning, and stretching to lift butts and flatten abs. New clients can buy a class for $20 instead of $30, or a pack of five for $100 instead of $115. Reservations required (Bridgehampton Commons Bikram yoga studio, Montauk Highway; 631-921-9400).

At Sag Harbor’s Yoga Shanti studio, where Russell Simmons lays his yoga mat, perfect your tree pose with a free class Tuesday to Thursday or a half-price class ($9) Friday to Monday. On weekends, evenings are your best chances for mat space. Reservations suggested (75 Main Street; 631-725-6424).

If a “teaser” on the Reformer is your choice workout, head to In Balance Pilates studio, where owner Lesa Salvani is offering either 20 percent off a one-hour private lesson ($68 instead of $85) or 20 percent off a series of mat classes ($80 instead of $100). Reservations required (2 Bay Street; 631-725-8282).

The theme at Summer Kicks in East Hampton is variety. Equinox’s Rique Uresti teaches kick-boxing, step, and body sculpting; a performer in Cirque de Soleil swoops in from Switzerland to teach Body Art in July. Newbies can buy a class for $15 instead of $20 or get 15 percent off a pack of ten ($153 instead of $180). Call for schedule and reservations (5 Railroad Avenue; 631-324-5333).
