KDHamptons: How long have you been living in the Hamptons? Why do you love it so much out here?
Andrea Fornarola Hunsberger: I have lived in East Hampton for a year, but have visited my entire New York Life. I am originally from upstate, NY and I enjoy nature and the beauty of the environment. Professionally I decided to launch my first studio location in the village and it has been very exciting and a great opportunity.

KDHamptons: Describe your perfect Hampton day in detail?
Andrea: It begins with a coffee from the Golden Pear, instructing one of my signature classes at Elements and then having brunch Babbettes. Relaxing and visiting the beach or the shops in East Hampton. We love to dine at home and cook delicious seafood or eat out at some of beautiful restaurants in East Hampton or Montauk.
KDHamptons: What is your favorite Hamptons restaurant, got a favorite dish & drink you get every time?
Andrea: They are all so amazing it’s hard to pick one! I actually love to cook at home and sip Wölffer “Summer in a Bottle”. When I am out, I enjoy going Fresno’s in East Hampton, I enjoy their poached Halibut.
KDHamptons: What are you looking forward to most this summer?

KDHamptons: Can you explain the benefits of your Barre and Dance Fusion classes?
Andrea: Barre is combination of yoga, Pilates and strength conditioning. Dance Fusion utilizes dance as higher intensity intervals and is paired with signature sculpting and toning exercises. Individually they incinerate calories and melt away fat by increasing the metabolic rate. When paired together, they offer a cardio and strengthen interval based program that is low impact, user friendly, safe and extremely effective. My clients look and feel amazing. The biggest reward in my line of work is to watch my clients transform their bodies from the inside out! They are able to maintain this because our work together is safe and effective.
KDHamptons: How is Elements gearing up for its second summer in the Hamptons?
Andrea: More signature programing, beautiful expanded lifestyle boutique, new expert instructors, and same experience driven custom experience.
