Bouncing Into Summer

Topping Rose House plus a trampoline sounds like a formula for serious summer fun. And that’s precisely what The Ness—Manhattan’s transcendent, danced-based, movement-focused trampoline fitness method—offers with the launch of its second studio, at Bridgehampton’s Topping Rose House, where last month it became the first brand to be trusted with the luxury hotel’s total fitness programming.

That’s an impressive vote of confidence, for Topping Rose House only works with “the best of the best,” points out general manager Joe Montag. “Access to premium fitness programming is an important amenity to our guests,” he adds. “We have no doubt that having The Ness on-site full time will enhance the hotel experience, and that of the community at large.”

Community is a core value of both Topping Rose House and The Ness. “This new studio is a natural evolution of our brand as we aim to create more opportunities to bounce in person with our community,” says Colette Dong, co-founder of The Ness. “Bringing The Ness to Topping Rose House allows us to immerse the Hamptons community in our beloved trampoline method. Guests come to Topping Rose House to escape and unwind, and we’re excited to add movement to the wellness experience that the hotel already so perfectly provides.”

Unlike The Ness’ Tribeca flagship, the Bridgehampton studio at Topping Rose House is by invitation only—yet it’s the opposite of exclusionary, allowing guests and trainers to co-create a safe, nurturing fitness space where wellness thrives. “Working out can be a vulnerable and overwhelming experience as you start something new, enter a class space, sweat and manage your relationship with your body in front of strangers,” says Aly Giampolo, co-founder of The Ness. “Being invite-only allows us to cultivate a personal community atmosphere that’s difficult, if not impossible, to achieve in a larger crowd of strangers.” Anticipating the new community bonds they’ll forge with Bridgehamptonites and the East End at large, she adds, “We’re thrilled to meet new faces, build relationships and walk alongside guests of Topping Rose House as they navigate their personal fitness journeys.”

The Ness community grows stronger all the time, in fitness as well as numbers. With the guiding principle that movement is joy, the brand’s unique dance-based approach and low-impact, springless trampoline have drawn a clientele from across 85 countries, 1,640 cities, and all 50 U.S. states. Classes take place Wednesday through Monday. 1 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Tpke., Bridgehampton,,
