Vacation Fitness: The Cape & Islands

Work off your vacation indulgences at these studios.

Summer on the Cape typically means lobster rolls, ice cream cones, and fried seafood far as the eye can see. And while we’d never dream of telling you to give up any of those things, enjoying vacation doesn’t have to mean throwing your fitness regimen away. Below, we found some great fitness options on the Cape and Islands, so you can wear your bikini and rock it, too.
