Four days down and you’re already backpedaling on your resolutions. Here, a few good men and women who’ll get you inspired. Again.
Your desire to exercise is hiding under layers of eggnog and apple pie. Let the trainers at Fusion Cross Training dig it out during their intense ten-week boot camp. Starting January 11, they’ll lead your group through cardio, strength, and stretching exercises three to five times a week — and provide you with tons of nutrition tips along the way.
You’ve sworn to finally follow your dreams; problem is, you’re not quite sure what they are. Helen Richardson of Career Consciousness is all about making the daily grind less grinding and can help inspire a job change or reignite a fire under your current career.
This is the year you finally wean yourself off takeout. Kitchen coach Ali Waks (215-755-0560) will start from scratch: teaching you to stock your pantry, prepare meals using local ingredients, and make shopping lists. She’ll come over, assess your sitch, and do whatever it takes to make sure your kitchen is five-star-meal ready.
So a pilgrimage to an ashram isn’t in the budget. Check out Hawthorne Yoga & Reiki in South Philly, instead: Dedicated to making the healing arts more affordable, the studio’s sliding-scale fees ($5-$15/class) mean you pay what you can afford.
Get Rubbed the Right Way
You wouldn’t need resolutions if you got regular massages. Let the staff at Mellow Massage in East Falls take care of you with Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, Shiatsu, and detox rubdowns at reasonable prices. It’s the only local studio that offers ayurvedic services, uses 100 percent organic products, and is offering $10 off a 60- or 90-minute massage if you mention DailyCandy.
