We hit the Hamptons to chat with one of our fitness faves, Nina Agdal, who has been sharing The Agdal Method as part of our Summer Wellness Series at The Surf Lodge. Read on to get Nina’s take on post-pandemic positivity, self-care and summer style.
With the world becoming a bit more social again, how are you finding time for self-care?
I prioritize it and remind myself that it’s okay to say no to things. I feel like since we started “going out” again there is something every day or night which is exciting and but sometimes prioritizing some alone time to pamper yourself and relax is necessary. Also I practice being present. That’s an underrated form of self care!
Top way to spend an afternoon in Montauk?
I love spending time in Montauk because you can truly have an entire day of activities if you want. For an afternoon I would probably go on one of the hikes. There are so many amazing trails out there and you’d get a little workout in at the same time so that’s a bonus! The walking dunes are so pretty! I would then have some oysters at Duryeas and head to Surflodge to finish up with some good music and a couple of drinks leading into a fun dinner watching the sun set.
Where are you looking forward to traveling next?
I haven’t been able to see my family since February 2020 so as soon as I’m able to travel to that part of the world that’s where I’m headed. Hopefully in the fall I can do a Europe trip, fingers crossed. Till Europe is possible I would love to go back to Joshua Tree. I love rock climbing and had the best trip there a few years ago.
Favorite workout song/genre?
Definitely anything EDM. If you’ve ever been to any of my classes or even at a party you know what type of music you can expect from me. Anything with a sexy beat that makes you want to move. Right this second I’m loving Easier feat Lowes - Camelphat.
Favorite Lightbox Jewelry piece to style this summer?
I love how you can really play around with the different rings. I always wear most of my jewelry on my hands so all of the rings are so fun to style also since the look changes by switching them around on different fingers.
