Article posted: January 1, 2020
With the dawn of a new decade, there is no better time to shift focus, embrace health and fitness, and embark on the journey to a new, improved you.
The good news is you don’t have to travel far to find the support you need. There’s a plethora of positivity – from health food, to fitness venues, to mind and body experts – available right here in the Camberwell shopping precinct.
Here’s how you can improve your health and wellbeing in Camberwell in the new year:
Get fit, move more
If being time poor is generally your reason for skipping the gym, then consider one of the biggest trends in fitness: 24/7 access. Camberwell’s Anytime Fitness, Jetts and Snap Fitness offer that open-all-hours convenience so you can fit in that workout session around your busy life. With free weights, cardio classes, team and individual training, there’s no reason not to get started.
For those who have limited time but don’t need the late-night access, try F45 Training Camberwell for a 45-minute burst of high intensity interval training. They offer targeted, fast fitness for those with little time to spare.
If variety is your fitness feel-good factor, then Pumpt Gym and Goodlife Camberwell have enough to prevent boredom for the whole of 2020. With cardio equipment, weights areas, and a range of group classes and personal training, there’s plenty to keep you interested in keeping fit.
For a controlled movement workout, join the millions worldwide doing Pilates. And you don’t even have to slow down. Try KX Pilates, a 50-minute, high intensity workout using reformer beds or Love Athletica which fuses classic reformer Pilates with strength training, cardio and yoga. Or ease the pace at Camberwell Pilates or Insync Physiotherapy & Pilates.
And, of course, there is the age-old method of stretch, flexibility and meditation – yoga. Jessica Dewar Yoga offers a range of yoga practices for all levels, and classes are 100% donation based meaning you can pay what you feel for the class.
If none of that suits, get fighting fit with 12RND Camberwell, the fastest growing high-performance boxing and strength training program.
Seek out healthy food
If you listen to the experts, what goes in your mouth is as important as how long you spend in the gym. Therefore, nutrition is key to a healthier new you in 2020.
You can’t go past a fresh food market for clean, nutritious food. Camberwell Fresh Food Market offers everything from a huge deli to a fruit and veg, poultry and seafood.
There’s also Coltivare, an exquisite store that sells premium fruit, vegetables and other food items, as well at The Source Bulk Foods, a proudly plastic-free shop that offers a huge range of organic foods in bulk, including nuts, seeds, flour, grains and more.
For those looking for healthy eats on the go, it’s not just possible in Camberwell, it’s easy! Try Acai Brothers for superfood juices, acai bowls, raw treats and coffee. Infuse offers an Asian infused, modern Australian menu and has a range of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options. And Dineamic offers fresh and tasty salads, juices and smoothies, as well as pre-made meals that cater to specific dietary requirements.
Address health concerns
A new year with its fresh-start vibe is a great time to get to those niggling things you’ve been putting off. Whatever your physical care needs, there’s a big range of local practitioners ready to assist such as Camberwell Osteopathic Clinic, Life Ready Physio, or Kieser.
And what better time to address your mental health than as you approach this new decade? Nexus Psychology’s experienced psychologists offer daytime and after-hours counselling for individuals, couples and families, while Be You Psychology offers youth counselling and services to treat anxiety, depression and behaviour disorders.
However you choose to ditch your old habits and create healthier new ones, don’t forget to allow time to relax and enjoy me-time. Elevation Floatation offers float therapy which promises a state of deep relaxation.
