Dear LBO Readers,
Birthday weeks are special ones – LBO turns 1 this week and all we want is to celebrate it with you! Last year I travelled across the country discovering amazing outdoor sports we can pursue in India and that’s all across the website and LBO’s social media channels for you to see and experience. This year I want to share with you all the awesome ways we can get fit and be outdoorsy right here in our city. There are so many activities, fitness workshops and events being organised weekly for us to step out of our cubicles and go out, get fit.
Do browse through the events section for your weekly dose of all that’s happening in your city and if you would like to post your events on LBO, please shoot us a mail at [email protected]
Pop Pilates is the newest rage we are excited to try out this weekend. To get those abs toned up, head to Tangerine Arts Studio this Saturday for a funky combination of Pilates with pop music.
On Sunday Mumbai has a culinary high-energy workshop organised by LBO at Gouri’s Kitchen. This will be a super chance for you to binge (guilt free!) on healthy recipes and learn to make some super post workout meals too.
After Gouri’s workshop at Lower Parel, you can head straight to Dadar for a sapling making workshop by Green Souls Get dirt on your hands and fill your lungs with the fragrance of mint leaves – trust me the sigh of fulfillment you will get at the end will be priceless. In our rushed lives we barely lay our hands on the fresh earth, rarely glue our nose to the fragrance of young leaves. Go for this, thank me later.
Are you an avid cyclist? Then head to Giant Starkenn Cycling World this weekend for some inspiring stories by avid cyclists Mr. Harish Wahi, founder of cycling group Only Cycling and LBO’s two favoutite triathletes Mehul Ved and Nupur Shikhare.
Then if you are in the mood for some healthy retail therapy, head to Yogisattva’s Organic Courtyard for all things healthy and organic. Make sure to pay a visit to Metaphor Soul Shoppe, one of my favourite participating brands here, her special colour therapy shower gels are the best for a post workout cleanse; not to mention their packaging is completely ecofriendly.
That’s all we have for this weekend, if you know of more such events and activities to go out and get fit, do share them here in the comments section of write to us at [email protected] and we’ll add them to our calendar for everyone! Fitness is about workouts, eating right, thinking right and being happy. I am so happy to see the variety of outdoor things to do in our city and am proud of the community spirit. May we all rise to the challenge and stay steadfast en route to achieving epic fitness!
