2019 is here, and it brings along with it new beginnings and the pressure (aka resolutions) of doing something noteworthy. Instead of rushing through this, we suggest you take it step-by-step to ensure a happy and cheerful new year. Here’s how you can make 2019 one to remember.

Get...Set...Fit

It's time to embrace the cliche this year and try and be fit. As much as you'd want to wriggle out of it, it does help you to be happier and no one has ever said no to compliments, have they? 

Les Mills is an international music group fitness class that basically works on choreographed exercise-to-music. It’s a high intensity workout, and you can sign up for this at F2 Fitness. F2 not only offers les mills classes in fact their instructors are les mills trained as well. For approximately INR 18,000 for three months, you can join the gym and avail the specific classes (unlimited; as many as you want) and sing up with the instructors. However, if you want to give it a try, sign up for a free trial.

You can also check out Way Of Life Studio, where you can take up dancing and other fun fitness instead of your boring gym sessions, where everything from Bollywood cardio to Bharatnayam are taught with equal merriment and energy. One of their signature classes is the Bollyburn, where they have certainly embraced the mad, Bollywood way of living. They hold both dance classes and dance workouts at this studio, but their most popular class is the Bollyburn. This is a bit like zumba – high energy dancing, and a set workout regime is taught to different Bollywood songs.

Acquire A New Skill

With every new skill you learn, you'll be better than what you were. Start with shooting maybe? Here's a list of shooting ranges in and around the city.

The Maharashtra Rifle Association is the top body looking into the sports in Maharashtra. Founded in 1969, their shooting range in Worli has one of the best facilities in the state. The training facility for air weapons and small bore rifles is open throughout the year, with certified and well trained coaches available the whole year round. The ranges consist of indoor 10-metre air weapons range (part air-conditioned), 25-metre range with automated turning target system, and 50-metre range. For persons domiciled in Maharashtra, life membership will cost INR 50,000; for individuals below 18 years, it will be INR 35,000. The ordinary membership is INR Rs 18,000 entrance fee and INR 3,500 yearly renewal. 

Lakshya was established in 2006 in Panvel by Arjuna awardee Suma Shirur to provide excellent rifle and pistol shooting range facilities with world class coaching. Comprehensive practical and theoretical training is provided to the club’s bonafide shooters. The basic foundation course costs INR 4,000. The duration of the course is six to seven days (one hour daily) with flexible timings during the range’s operation hours only at both the facilities in Vashi  and Panvel. Options for special weekend courses for working professionals and special corporate packages for group courses with prior appointments are also available.

Party, But Smartly

Instead of buying a karaoke machine on impulse or shelling out thousands on that much awaited birthday party at an expensive club, how about partying on a budget while bringing a karaoke machine to your house on rent? We found a website that will make your parties better without making you go broke.

Say No To Boring Dates

You know, the routine. Getting into an Uber and going for drinks and dinner or a movie. Mix 2019 up with dancing instead. Hit up Kaitlyn's Beer Garden on a Saturday night post 9pm, where the music rules the floor and you've got to put your best foot forward and shake a leg to hip-hop and commercial music that is a great way to meet and interact with new people. Time to keep those awkward silences at bay.

P.S.- There is no entry charge.

Don't Forget To Take It Easy

The power of massages is underrated but life-changing. There’s nothing a good foot massage can’t solve. Metta Spa in Bandra specializes in foot reflexology and is a very unique experience as they are run by a collective of visually-impaired individuals. The ambience is calm and unassuming and the massage is very effective. Spearheaded by Joanita, the owner, Metta has been around for around 10 years now. They charge only INR 400 for an hour long session from Monday to Friday and INR 500 on the weekends.
