New Jersey’s New Year’s Celebration in “Fitness style with Varsha Naik

Varsha Naik from New Jersey organized a unique fitness event called “Pallo Latke: Welcoming the New Year.” This event featured different types of dance and fitness lovers. Fitness is crucial to day to day life, however we are still behind to understand the concept of fitness. “A New Year’s party can be a fitness orientated event. The basic idea of welcoming in the New Year is partying, dance, and entertainment. Naik thought to have a fitness dance party in which she incorporated the ideas of a party in a fitness class.” said Naik.  In this fitness party, Naik asked all the attendees to bring a scarf, or a “Pallo” which was integrated throughout the entire event. Fitness parties are not you everyday kind of party. They are equally as fun compared to a traditional party.

     

Pallo latke: Welcoming the New Year is a sixty-minute workout circuit party, in which laughter and entertainment was main goal. The party began with “Laughter Yoga” instructed by Poonam Gupta. Gupta was invited by Naik and she expressed that one does not need a reason to laugh, one can laugh and enjoy themselves at any time. Next the event continued to a quick Zumba class in which Zin Varsha Naik and Zin Sumathy Iyer led the class in unique twist. They used Zumba moves to Bollywood songs which attracted many people. The event ended with a dance lesson on the new Bollywood song, “Pallo Latke” in which the attendees used their “Pallo’s.” They were also performed on Ghoomar Song from the film of Padmavati. Light healthy dinner were served at the end.

The Fitness Party was a great time! No one was bored throughout the event because of the way it was designed. The event ensured that there was always something new happening every few minutes which kept the attendees’ attention locked in the event. The trainers made sure that in each dance we did, laughter and exercise was used. This combination makes working out, something that is dreadful to some, not seem like a work out, rather something that is more enjoyable.

“Fitness is a lifestyle,” Naik said, “It’s even more important that as you get older to stay active. As people become fitness enthusiasts, it is a great way to share that with people in their lives. It is all about living a healthy lifestyle.” Laughter and dance is a great combination that promotes a healthy life style while having fun.
