Been a die-hard party animal all your life? Cannot think of a Saturday night beyond pub-hopping, then think again. Today, the world is obsessed with fitness, and Indians and Hyderabadis have become health and fitness conscious extremely.
So, the latest... well, not so latest, but most happening trend in Hyderabad these days is to attend a fitness party. Yes, that's right. An early morning fitness party on Sundays is the 'in' thing for now. However, the fitness parties began way back in 2018 though it's now that they are gaining popularity.
Usually, the fitness 'parties' are held at roof-top pubs or fitness studios, and those gather to groove to the music, exercise, dance, and then grab some healthy food for breakfast. One of the earliest clubs or groups to start this trend in the city happens to be The Morning Risers Party. This group began throwing fitness parties in 2018, and they are still going strong.
The organizer of the group Amitesh Sharma of N Coldpressed shares that this type of party is also done for a cause. In their case, it is to educate the underprivileged children. Sharma says that organizing a fundraiser is so passe. Through a fitness party, people can groove to Zumba, eat some healthy food and network with like-minded people, and do some charity – all at one go.
Another person joining the 'party' is Dinaz Vervatwala, a known name among celebrity fitness freaks in the city. She says she once used to teach exercises with English music. But things changed when she once started moving to some Bollywood moves, and she has embraced the dhink chak music for good.
Usually, 70-80 people turn up for the party. But of late, the numbers have increased to 100. Those interested can network and join these fitness parties. Also, those who want to showcase their art like dance or yoga can initiate a fitness party.
