Instagram Diary: Montauk-ing with Sweaty Betty

As a fan of all #HealthyObsessions, I was beyond excited when Sweaty Betty invited me for a wellness getaway in Montauk. I arrived on Wednesday night to find my home away from home, Ruschmeyers, stocked with goodies to wear and juices to drink. Bring on the workouts!
Bright and early, we woke up for breakfast in the garden, followed by a private yoga class, accented with Montauk Juice Factory's delicious Liquid Sunshine.

After yoga, wellness coach Arielle Fierman set up an entire picnic table full of healthy food and walked us through tips & tricks on how to eat well on a daily basis. Step #1 - look at the ingredients and if you can't pronounce it, don't eat it. Here are a few "on the go" bars she's OK'd.
Want fried chicken but don't want the calories? Pick up this cashew meal at Trader Joe's and use this instead of white flour!
Another great "on the go" option is Justin's nut butter, spread on rice cakes or bananas. You should eat within 45 minutes of working out, so this is a great snack as you're walking home from the gym.
For the mornings that you're lacking the motivation to go the gym, just take a whiff of eucalyptus or peppermint and you'll be out the door and wide awake in no time.
Eating healthy doesn't have to be dessert free. Coconut milk ice cream is just as delicious, if not creamier, and there are a wealth of toppings you can add, like cherries or spelt pretzels.
After Arielle dispensed her knowledge to us, we took off on bikes for downtown Montauk.
We stopped into Montauk Juice Factory, which is the most precious little store I've ever seen. MJF just opened this season and is brimming with "good vibes." All of the juices are pressed on site, in the most immaculate kitchen I've ever seen. If the cleanliness and the cute factor haven't sold you - the juices are among the best I've ever tried.

That night, we showered and dressed up to head to The Crow's Nest and arrived just in time for sunset.
It took a lot to drag us from this perfect spot, but we sat down to fresh seafood and amazing conversation with the Sweaty Betty founder, Tamara Hill-Norton.

On Friday, we woke up with prepped for a morning of SUP with Corey Waves.
It's next to impossible to dress for SUP; I was nervous that I'd be cold in just a swimsuit, so I wore these Sweaty Betty shorts, which turned out to be perfect. The dry quickly and are so light and nonrestrictive.
Doesn't healthy food just LOOK so scrumptious? After paddle boarding, we tucked into lobster rolls, kale salad and a mix of beets with MJF's Dope Beets on the side.

Sweaty Betty (a well made, not to mention, fashion-forward fitness apparel brand) out of the UK recently opened a store in SoHo, and I've been sniffing around the brand's wares ever since. Founder Tamara Hill-Norton invited me and a few other editors to spend three days at Ruschmeyers in Montauk, investing in fitness and wellness with yoga, SUP, and a visit to Montauk Juice Factory, all while wearing enviable pieces from Sweaty Betty. Perfection, right?Read More ↓
