How to kick-start your New Year goals in Elsternwick Village

January is a great time to take stock, set new goals, and hit the refresh button.

The ending of the old year and the beginning of a new one sparks a desire to do things differently, try something new or simply reinvigorate ourselves.

And it doesn’t have to be hard. Little changes – eating better, moving more, or changing your look – can create big results.

The best part? You can kick-start your New Year goals right here, in Elsternwick Village.

Try a new type of exercise

Following the season of overindulgence, the new year is time to return to – or start – exercise.

Find something you love, not something to endure. Or if you are bored with your existing routine, freshen things up. Elsternwick Village has plenty of variety.

Why not train like a fighter at 12RND Fitness? The boxing-inspired 45-minute workouts deliver a varied strength program.

F45 Training Elsternwick also features 45-minute, full-body, HIIT style workouts.

The boutique gym 6 Degrees South Health and Fitness promises “a gym that inspires”, with group classes as well as personal training sessions.

For Fit Sake offers group classes, boxing and personal training and, if time needs to be flexible for you, Zap Fitness is open 24/7.

You can get a great core workout at a slower pace, too. Check out The Yoga Space Melbourne, Core Physio & Pilates, and Yoga Tree and find the right fit for you.

Or mix it up by combining Pilates with rowing-based cardio at Strong Rowformer.

Explore healthy food and cuisines

Whether or not exercise is top of your new-me agenda, a fresh focus on food is a great New Year’s resolution.

Take stock of your pantry and fridge items, then have a look at the range of health stores and eateries in Elsternwick Village and select some healthier versions.

Glo Health is an organic produce store and wellness clinic. They also stock skin, hair and beauty items and healthier pet food and pet products.

Even eating out can be healthy. Cocomamma’s Juices & Smoothies is a vegetarian and vegan restaurant with hearty breakfasts and nutritious lunches on offer.

Spud and juice bar Healthy Point serves up soups, sushi, and a variety of salads, while Green Remedy is all about nutritious and nourishing soul food.

Get organised for school or work

Why not decide on a better routine as part of your new year goals?

Ditch forgetfulness and poor planning and instead make lists, appointments, and plans. Think of it as a New Year health plan for your life.

Take a stroll through Officeworks for some inspiration and to pick up all those back-to-school and work-from-home essentials.

Visit Elsternwick Village’s gift shops, newsagents, and stationery stores to find those perfect little notepads or cute calendars – whatever helps you stay on track.

Refresh your look

A simple visit to a hairdresser can work wonders and Elsternwick Village will have the cutter or colourist for you.

Baxter Melbourne offers a full range of services – and a welcoming coffee. Cesar Hair Studio offers, among other things, Keratin hair treatment and organic colouring. At Little Princess Hair and Skin, you can also indulge in beauty treatments.

And for the men, there are barber shops aplenty.

While you are in refresh mode, treat yourself to something new to wear.

Have a look at the Australian and international designers at Energie Spirit; update your everyday wear or snap up a new summer dress at Sussan, or bargain hunt at Recycled Designer Labels for pre-loved clothing.

Maybe it’s time for that bespoke suit you’ve always wanted. If so, Profile by Pino Curcio, an award-winning master tailor, is the place. And Elsternwick institution Hattams Mens & Boys Wear is a one-stop shop for everything from undies to jackets.
