Clic Home Opens

The sign will remain the same at the former General Home Store building at the corner of Park Place in East Hampton Village, but the business inside will be Clic Home, a new venture started by Christiane Celle. Ms. Celle used to own Calypso and has another Clic shop that sells clothing on Newtown Lane as well as businesses in St. Barts and New York City.

Lisa Friscia, who ran the General Home Store, is the manager of Clic Home.

There will be large photos of scenes from around the world on a couple of the walls, and all sorts of decorative items, rugs, throws, pillows, baskets, West African wooden stools, benches, bedding, sofas, tableware, including dishes, and home accessories will be available. 

The new shop opened this week, just in time for the Hamptons International Film Festival and the Columbus Day holiday weekend. 


Fall at Hamptons Gym Corp.

Hamptons Gym Corp., which has locations in East Hampton, Sag Harbor, and Southampton, has launched a range of new classes for the fall, introduced an on-site juice bar at its Sag Harbor gym, and welcomed two new women to its staff. The gym is also offering what it describes as “deeply discounted” membership rates for students under 21 and teachers.

Mary Kathleen Weber has joined Hampton Gym Corp. as the fitness director for all three gyms. Ms. Weber was a coach at the college level and a leader at the Fitness Formula Club brand before taking her position. Also joining the staff is Jennfer Rosas, who will be a lead personal trainer and a coach for the gym’s Tribe Team Training programs. An Army veteran, Ms. Rosas “brings a military style workout to her training sessions,” the gym said. 

Hamptons Gym, which is an affiliate of Tribe Team Training, has launched six-week small-group training sessions led by Stephanie Bormuth, another head Tribe coach. Meant for people at all fitness levels, the program includes a range of different classes. The cost for six weeks is $319.

Also on the fall roster of classes are Row Core Interval Training, which utilizes the rowing machine to build strength and endurance, and Core de Force Live, a mixed-martial-arts-inspired total body workout that uses suspension training, kettlebells, medicine balls, and resistance bands. Row Core Interval Training is led by Rebecca Olender and is offered on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 10 a.m. in Southampton. Treacy Villante, Carrie Krempler, Julie Weisenberg, and Tiffany Lamprecht teach the Core de Force classes on Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m., Fridays at 9:30 a.m., and Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. in Sag Harbor. 

Juice Harbor is open in Sag Harbor daily from 7 a.m. until the gym closes. 

Teachers and students wishing to take advantage of membership discounts have been asked to contact Mitch Levy at the East Hampton location.
