Located at 8 Novelty Lane in Essex Village with breathtaking views of the Connecticut River, and on Route 1 in Westbrook, Fitness on the Water is a private fitness studio operated by Essex Wellness Center. It offers a unique experience of peace and privacy as you work toward improved strength and physical health. Boaters and beachgoers find this a convenient place to get in a workout and women who feel self-conscious about going to “a gym” often find this to be a welcoming and motivating environment. Luxurious and private, Fitness on the Water offers specialized services accompanied by highly individualized expert attention.


The Fitness on the Water at Water’s Edge Resort is now OPEN! Come by and see us! Brand new space and equipment — highly experienced, longtime favorite Instructors! Come see Dana Brown, Kristine Ciardello, Jenn Konin, Susan Connelly, Hillary Kennedy and Joanne Platanos! Fully Equipped Studio – easily accessible right on Route 1 over the Old Saybrook-Westbrook line in Westbrook (Water’s Edge Resort)!


…Hillary Kennedy is the Goddess of Barre Class – know that she has a CULT FOLLOWING. I LOVE her classes – (I am only one of her many devoted fans) – and Hillary is one of the ESSENTIAL reasons I succeeded in the Fitness Challenge. Hillary uses every second of her sixty minute class to work and stretch our muscles. She squeezes every bit of effort and strength from her participants – while keeping us safe and free from injury. That’s a very big deal. She is fun – and funny – and keeps a very strenuous class moving along nicely. Most importantly, she is an exceptional trainer. Her class is never the same, always super challenging, always working deeply into muscles long dormant. Hillary is completely vested in her participants, constantly correcting form, coaxing us to do better and to do more, ever vigilant. We leave Hillary’s Barre class exhausted, but exultant! Just call her “Goddess” for short…” – From “AS”, Essex
