Celebrated Christmas and New Year’s a bit too much (and gained some extra weight to prove it)? Here are six ways to snap back into shape:
- Pick up an açai bowl at Cabana Açai Bar at Publika , Kuala Lumpur
Açai bowls are huge these days and for a good reason: they’re delicious and healthy. Made of frozen açai berries (known to be a superfood) with additional fruity toppings, they pack a lot of flavour and antioxidants. Cabana also serves up delicious salad smoothies. Find out more on its Facebook page or Instagram.
- Sign up for a membership at KOA Fitness at Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur
Want to be a lean machine by next year (it doesn’t help that Christmas and Chinese New Year are only a month apart)? Here’s a simple solution: sign up for a gym membership! Though you might have qualms about joining a gym (e.g. self-consciousness or the expensive fees), this all-women workout spot in Mont Kiara ensures you get the best training with specially-tailored programmes. Check out its Facebook page for details on trial classes.
- Run a marathon
Burn those stubborn fats off by running! If you find the treadmill boring, just put on your running gear and hit the streets. You’ll even get a medal for it! Here are some marathons around Malaysia you can sign up for:
- CRAZY Inflatable Run 2017 (Kuala Lumpur)
- MPI Generali Run (Kuala Lumpur)
- Watergate 16 Hours (Putrajaya)
- Twincity Marathon (Cyberjaya)
- Lunch right with healthy food delivery
Kick your oily-food craving to the curb by ordering simple yet nutritious lunches. With the health-food craze gaining force in recent years (and we don’t see it disappearing anytime soon in 2017!), there are plenty of delivery services that’ll ensure you get your lunch-time fill – and you won’t even have to leave the building! We’ve compiled some of our fave deliveries and meals here.
- Yoga it out
Join yoga pro Emma Sheridan for two enriching workshops at Life Hot Yoga at Glo Damansara in Petaling Jaya! On 21st January, from 10am to 12:30pm, Emma is conducting a Detox and Digest Workshop, where you’ll learn pranayama (breathing exercises), use movements to eliminate toxins and stress, and meditate for emotional release. The second workshop, Introduction to Inversions, will be held the next day at the same time; it will explore different upside-down moves (it’s easier than it sounds!). Find out everything you need to know, including prices and payment methods here.
Most of us are traveling somewhere #outofkl this festive season. Have a safe trip and have lots of fun wherever you are. However, if you really want to sweat it out today, we are open here at #lifehotyoga. Let’s all fly away in our next class today at 4pm, Hot Vinyasa. #nochaturangatoday #newthemethisweek #subteachingvinyasa #yogakl #holidayyoga #ekapadabakasana #flyingcrowpose #lifehotyoga
- Try the Prosperity Juice at Juice Works
