Surfset Fitness :Unique Fitness Studio in Town

IMG_20150403_184759You have been told umpteen times that exercise is good for your health, Certainly it’s good not only for losing weight or building muscles but also de-stress yourself. Fitness plays a big role in my life. Being a fitness freak, I always make sure that I  do my workout  at least  4 days a week. For a night owl like me, getting up early is the big headache. I usually wake up at around 9.30 am, but I force myself to go for 6.30 am workout. But then now its routine for me. I try not to skip my workout. Now I have become a morning lark (smiles).  It’s also about feeling good.

I usually never try latest fitness trends but since I saw the Surfset video on Youtube, I was intrigued to their fitness regime. For those who  don’t know about Surfset . It uses a stationary surfboard to replicate the muscle-toning, calorie-burning workout of a real surf session without the water. I was elated when I got a call from Surfset Fitness India  for a trial session at their only studio in Mumbai.In fact in India I would say. It is owned by Surfset Fitness India, by husband-wife duo Kajal and Deepak Tejsinghani under YOLO Brands LLP. They have got Alish& Joshua, Surfest Certified fitness trainer. My trainer for the session was Joshua, very soft spoken  and highly energetic guy. Basically, Surfset  classes actually come in four different levels:

IMG_20150403_184921

  1. Burn,
  2. Balance,
  3. Build and
  4. Blend,

Which mainly  focuses  on cardio, instability, resistance training and the variety of the moves makes the session  really fun and interactive. My session was for about 45 minute Balance session. Now the session started, we had to step on the surfboards, Initially it was difficult to stand up. I thought how would I manage it for next 45 mins. Where the hell I am trapped? My body was shaky and  was trying to stabilize myself as I was moving left-right  direction.  But my trainer was good enough told no need to worry concentrate on your core you will be able to balance it rightly. Yes, that’s right I was able to balance it now after I found my core-centric. As I was able to balance it, the next exercise would start Few of the moves were recognizable like planks, lunges, squats  but rest all were challenging. I was sweating like someone trapped in a hot steam room with 80-degree temp. My legs were trembling, but the music was upbeat enough to motivate me .After 20 mins, I was able to catch the waves. Lastly the paddling through the water, jumping like a jack up and down, Warrior like pose made me cool surfer for a day.  My class ended with relaxation pose. I was very much happy that I  finished the class. Joshua told me it’s a beginner level what you did. My brain freeze, I was thinking what would be the next level then!

IMG_20150403_184654

From start to finish, SurfSET was a total body workout, I had enjoyed my session.  I definitely felt the burn in my legs and abs for next few days  after. If you’re interested in training for real surfing or just want to try a fun new fitness class out, I would definitely recommend SurfSET.It’s suitable for all ages, men, and women.The next time you’re feeling down, stressed or anxious, get off the couch and get some exercise instead.

When I came to know about  an evening with Legendary Music Icon Rekha Bhardwaj performing live in concert in Mumbai. I was pumped up and the first thing I did was registered for this event.  It was on Sunday evening at the European-themed Dublin Square at Phoenix Market city Kurla.

It was raining heavily in the evening, but rains failed to dampen the spirit .I arrived at the venue bit late as I was waiting for my friends outside, but the spirit of Mumbaikars  were up and when I entered I saw house pack audience calmly enjoying the music.

#SniffSniff all the way to #BanBodyOdour

One afternoon, I was sleeping in my bedroom, after a  tiring session of the new workout regime. My Doorbell rang once, but I did not pay heed to it. I was all in my dreams of my  dream destination  at a beachside bungalow,Second bell rang now it was louder and longer, that disturbed my sleep and I woke up if there’s something wrong. I went to open the door to see there was courier guy, who was petite and gave me dead look.

sniff1The parcel packed in blue color written #SniffSniff. I was amused now what it is? Why would someone send this teaser?  Let’s look what’s inside the box. To my surprise, it was a human face and cloth line clip fixed on its nose. I immediately knew its something to do with the odour. But why me?  So many questions popped up in my mind. We need to take care of body odour

sniff2

All day I was thinking what’s #sniffsniff would be. The very next morning there was another parcel  at my doorstep. The same courier guy, (no dead looks this time, I did not test his patience) gave me the teaser and I kept it on my desk. But couldn’t wait to open it. It was small gunny bag and coffee beans inside. The aroma of coffee was such that my neighbor came to ask me can you make one filter coffee for me too. Guys gimme a break. What the heck! Why they are sending “ME” .

sniff3

If this was not over, after one day again the same courier guy came now I gave him serious look and asked him “mate what’s going on” He smiled and that’s the final teaser and went downstairs. This time when I opened it  I found a nose mask. I was running out of ideas and searching for a clue. I thought secret keeper wants me to safe from bad odour.  So far this is the big problem everywhere,  I completely support #BanBodyOdour.

Stay tuned to know more about the #sniffsniff. What would be it? The secret will be revealed soon

I’m using my investigative skills to uncover the mystery of#SniffSniff at BlogAdda.

Product Review : Edelweiss Tokio Life-MyLife+

One Saturday I was returning home after a religious function.In Mid-way, I saw a young guy in 30’s met with an accident, writhing in pain, lying down motionless. Had he got treatment during golden hour, he would have been alive. My mind could not stop thinking about the incident. It was rolling over my eyes.What’s the value of Life after all we work and earn so much  and eventually die. Who’s going take care of my family, children’s?  I spoke to my father about it. He told me Death is certain, one day everyone has to die so why not mitigate the risk and cover your life with an Insurance that supports your family.

I came across Edelweiss Life-MyLife+ Is an online term plan that covers one’s life and provides security to the family. It is being offered exclusively online and hence one can choose to protect the family from the comfort of one’s home.

Important features of Edelweiss

  1. Choose life cover up to the age of 80 years so that your family has protection over a longer period.
  2. Multiple payout option: Lump sum or monthly or combination of both, it becomes easier for your family to manage the benefited amount.
  3. It gives you  enhanced protection through an  addition of Accidental Total and Permanent Disability Rider and Accidental Death Benefit Rider.
  4. Minimum assured sum INR 25,00,000 and maximum sum assured have no limits subjected to underwriting.
  5. You can avail tax assistance under Section 80C and Section 10 (10D) of Income Tax Act, 1961. Tax assistance is subject to change in the tax laws. It is a tax-free investment.

This policy offers discounts for women, as well as on choosing a high sum assured. For women up to 21 years of age, the premium rate will be that of an 18-year-old male. A lower premium rate for female lives.The policy is available only from 18 years of age. Subsequently, the premium rate for women will be that of a male three years younger. Premium discounts are available if you choose a sum assured above Rs.25 lakhs

My take: – MyLife+ is one of the cost-effective plans available in the market and in fact it allows you customization is a plus point. Option for periodic income is recommended considering the beneficiary may not be able to put the lump sum payment to good use immediately. Also, it allows the policyholder to break up the sum assured into lump sum payments and monthly payments in any way desired.
