New year, fresh focus: How to make a healthy switch in Camberwell

Make Camberwell shopping precinct your stomping ground and seeking out everything you need for a healthier new you as you enter a new year.

Fresh and nutritious food, fitness venues, plus healthy mind and body practitioners, are right here on your doorstep.

Here’s how you can adopt new wellness habits this year in Camberwell.

Focus on fitness

Many of us make a decision to get fit – or simply move more – as a new year rolls in. Whatever type of exercise suits your goals, you will find it in Camberwell.

For stretch and overall body conditioning, Pilates or yoga won’t let you down. Go slow and meditative, or speed it up – your choice.

Try KX Pilates for a 50-minute, high intensity workout using reformer beds or Love Athletica, fusing classic reformer Pilates with strength training, cardio and yoga.

If you prefer a more sedate pace Camberwell Pilates offers clinical Pilates in a beautiful light-filled studio, or Insync Physiotherapy & Pilates has Pilates exercise and rehab sessions as well as physio treatments.

And, of course, the age-old practice of yoga is a great choice for those seeking flexibility. Jessica Dewar Yoga offers eight different yoga classes for all levels, with a range of payment options including a donation-based “pay as you feel” mode for casual classes.

But, if gym is your thing, there are no shortages of these in Camberwell either, and they too come in all shapes and sizes.

Some such as Camberwell’s Anytime FitnessJetts, and Snap Fitness offer 24/7 convenience – so, not finding the time to exercise is no longer a valid excuse. Choose free weights, cardio classes, team or individual training.

There’s also F45 Training for 45-minutes of high-intensity interval training, or if you want a broader range of training options including cardio, weights, classes and personal training, try  Goodlife Camberwell.

For a more boutique offering there is Fitness Keeper, with personal training, exercise physiology or small group classes – all outdoors.

Focus on nourishing food

Exercise is important but to truly improve your health, good nutrition is key.

There is no need to overthink it – simply switch to healthier options when grabbing a takeaway or eating out and seek out fresh food for cooking at home. For all three, Camberwell is an ideal shopping precinct.

Try a sashimi share plate or stir-fried sweet potato noodles at Miss Korea Kitchen and Grill or the delicious Japanese offerings at Okami. Or head to Soul Sisters, an all vegan cafe that serves acai bowls, smoothies, fresh juices and buddha bowls among its delicious range.

And Camberwell has plenty of fresh produce to enable you to stock your pantry and fridge full of all you need for your healthy new start.

Trawl Camberwell Fresh Food Market for all things fresh and nutritious. From its huge deli, to its abundance of fruit and veg, poultry and seafood, you can’t go wrong.

At The Source Bulk Foods stock up on a range of organic grains, seeds, flours, herbs, spices and so much more, all while supporting a zero-waste philosophy. Take your purchases home in paper bags or bring your own containers to fill.

Coltivare is bursting with fresh fruit and vegetables, local and imported groceries, freshly baked bread and a sumptuous cheese selection.

And Coles, Woolworths, and Aldi are all in the precinct too.

Focus on health

Pay attention to your body. A tune-up as you embark on your wellness plan could be beneficial.

Local practitioners such as Camberwell Chiropractic CentreLife Ready Physio + Pilates, or Kieser will help keep you mechanically sound.

Look after your mental health too, with services such as Nexus Psychology, Kate Swan Psychology or Be You Psychology & Counselling all covering a broad range of issues.

As you embark on a new year, maybe a complete cleanse is in order? If so, book a visit to the Colon Care Clinic – Melbourne’s first colonic irrigation clinic

Or if you’d prefer to destress, try a silent and calming switch-off at Elevation Floatation.

Every journey to good health is an individual one, and however you choose to embrace a more wholesome, energised new year, Camberwell has all the stores and services you’ll need.
