Wake up! It’s Gym’o clock

It’s because of the health conscious Jaipurites, the fitness culture has popped up in our city. If you are a regular gym person, you must be finding it a fun and exciting place to stay fit and then you already know the unsaid rules or say Gym Etiquettes. But for all those who are new to the gym, it’s better to know the basic do’s and don’ts. There are many important things including clothing, body odour, cell phones, space or equipment sharing and moreover the basic hygiene that one should be careful about.

Do’s at the gym

  1. Do ask your trainer before you start

Before taking the first step on the machine, ask your trainer what is best suited for you according to your health. Don’t just go with the flow and end up injuring yourself.

  1. Warm up

Warming up before starting your workout is a MUST ! Cold muscles aren’t that flexible so opt for gentle movements like walking or stretching that will help your muscle relax before going out on a meticulous workout.

  1. Keep your water bottle with you

Carry a water bottle with you ALWAYS! Drink plenty amount of water even before you get thirsty in between your workout because getting thirsty is believed to be a sign of dehydration.

  1. Do wear deodorant

After you are finished with your exhaustive routine at the gym, you may not realize but the odour of your body can prove to be a problem for others working out near you.

  1. Do wipe your machines before you start working out

You know it and there is no shying away from the fact that we tend to sweat during our gym activity. So why not carry a napkin and wipe off the machines/ equipment before using them? This way our hygiene will be safe in our hands.

  1. Do keep the weights at their proper place

Once you are done using the weights, don’t just leave them where you finished exercising. Keep them at their proper place otherwise, someone can end up getting injured. The gym trainers and owners are going to thank you later.

Don’ts at the gym

  1. Don’t focus on everyone’s workout

A basic rule to follow at the gym; focus on your workout instead of what others are doing. If you are really keen to learn what the other person is doing, then either ask him/her once he/she is finished his/her exercise or ask your trainer.

  1. Don’t use your phone at all

Talking while working out, especially when on a treadmill is not a really good idea. This disturbs your concentration to use the equipment and you can end up injuring yourself. Moreover, it disturbs others a lot.

  1. Don’t restrict yourself to training

Achieving your goals in the gym is a good deal, but don’t limit yourself to specific machines and equipment. The more you keep your mind open about your routine, the better you realize what you’re good at 😉

DSC_0049.JPG

  1. Don’t use gym equipment without proper guidance

First day at the gym and can’t figure out which equipment is suited for you? Don’t worry, take the help of your instructor because a proper guidance on what and how of that equipment is a MUST!

  1. Don’t dominate all the machines at once

Shifting from one machine to another in a short span of time to break the monotony can be unethical because you’re not the only one at the gym. Other people are waiting for their turn, so be mindful and give each routine the time it deserves at one stretch.

Follow these simple rules at the gym and make your way to the fitter YOU !

If you’re thinking to join gym pretty soon remember to choose one which is best for you. The best infrastructure, experienced trainers, central location and for the ladies if you get pick up drop service go for that.

Do check out Good To Great Sports Academy that focuses on taking the fitness routine and lifestyle of Jaipur’s people to next level. It lives up to high expectations and has everything required in order to be fit.

Jaipur Mountaineers Make It To The Far North!

When passion becomes purpose, miracles happen. This has been proved by three young mountaineers from Pink City who followed their passion and made it truly evident that there is no peak of the world higher than willpower.

43333392_174455060111325_5302598294730440704_n

Having started their journey of bravery from Tongul village at Kargil on August 27, Rahul Bairwa, Sandeep Saini and Nipun Shashtri climbed for 24 days and achieved the rare feat of scaling 7135 meters of Mount Nun, the highest peak of Himalayan Range lying on the Indian side of LoC.

Having survived the extreme climatic conditions, heavy snowfall for more than 72 hours, lack of oxygen due to the altitude and having lost a friend to hypothermia on the way, did not let their will to conquer the mountain die and they started to climb again on 19th September after having been stranded for almost 9 days due to thunderstorm and snow.

43195422_1078551075602995_4385992986035486720_n

Although most of their team members had climbed down due to extremely bad weather, this trio did not back down and made way for success through their constant struggle and undying motivation.

A Musical Ride For Jaipur Foodies !

Music is a language that doesn’t speak in particular words. It speaks in emotions, and so does food. Food is the music we hear in spices and flavours rather than notes and scales. When the softness of your favourite dish melts in your mouth, it creates a hymn so overwhelming, that the strings are buzzed in the heart and soul.

Hail dear sons of Epicurus! On the birthday of the most legendary singer of all times Lata Mangeshkar Ji, Jaipur Beat has brought the jukebox of spices and flavours with dishes from various cuisines, creating an orchestra of fusion only for you.

According to Indian Ras, genres in music evoke different emotions in us and same does the food! Every food has a different feel to it coming right from the place of its origin.

  • Pasta: Singing the songs of Italian Folk culture, presents itself the very favourite Pasta. This dish with authentic Italian flavours is the classic penne pasta cooked in Italian red or white or pesto sauce and accounts for an amazing option for those craving a delightful starter option! It is one of the most favourites of us Jaipurites!

  • Tandoori Chicken: *Drumrolls* Give way for the Jaan, The Aan, Baan and Shaan of and the most celebrated dish from Punjabi cuisine, Tandoori Chicken. Marinated and grilled, Tandoori chicken will have your heart tuned to the beats of bhangra. Wherever we go, the non-veg lovers are forever drooling over this amazing dish!

 

img_5617.jpg

  • Ker Sangri: Every bit of this delicious Rajasthani delight calls to you with its melodious rhythms singing “Padharo Mhare Des!” This mouth watering dish is served as a delicacy by people in Rajasthan and is made from a wild shrub from the Rajasthani desert. And after all “Voh Rajasthani hi kya jisko Ker Sangri na pasand ho?”

 

ker sangri

  • Pav Bhaji– Pav Bhaji is one of those dishes that we are ever so ready for. Authentically Maharashtrian, Bhaji is a mix of vegetables mashed together and cooked in spices and served with buns (pav) and garlic chutney. Jaipurites love to indulge into Pav Bhaji every once in a while.

 

pav bhaji1

  • Exotic Garlic Bread: Garlic Bread is the ever so loved choice of Jaipurites. It is the Americanized form of authentic Italian dish Bruschetta. It spreads the aroma of the fusion between Italian-American flavours and the refreshed melodies singing in olive and oregano tunes.

  • Pani Patashi– If there is anything in Jaipur that’s in abundance, it’s pani patashiwalas! You can find one at every 100 metres, and guess what; they’re all crowded not just by women, but men too! Semolina or flour made puchkas filled with spicy mashed potatoes, chutneys and spiced water sing the melodies of northern India and are always more than welcome!

 

golgappe

  • Dal Baati Churma– Be it the ‘Goth’ at Khole ke Hanumanji or homemade ghee baati, Jaipurites are always up for the authentic Rajasthani delicacy and love to indulge into the flavours of churma and masala baati with dal. Every time we have this signature food from Rajasthan, there’s a true feel of Rajasthan running through our veins!

Reviving the Lost Art of Blue Pottery

From booming Jaipuri prints to authentic leather jootis, Kathputlis, and stone carving to glittering lac bangles, Jaipur has always been a hub for handicrafts and traditional arts.

blue pottery_14.jpg

Having travelled through the generations of royal art and culture is one of the most prolific arts of our Jaipur city, the art that encapsulates the spirit of painting, carving and moulding altogether; Blue Pottery. Embellished in floral motifs and beautiful hand-drawn designs with natural colours and substances, Blue Pottery is one of a kind traditional art of Jaipur.

blue pottery.jpg

We have all heard about it, seen it, bought it and used at home for décor as well as for culinary purposes, but it is a rarely known fact that the amazing art of Blue Pottery is a handicraft and all the items are totally handmade.

blue pottery_9

Emerging from Persian Chinese roots, Blue Pottery was introduced in India by Maharaja Mansingh I and was carried on by his ascendants. This unique art of making colourful earthen wares is exclusive to our city Jaipur but is losing its identity day by day. Jaipur Beat took an initiative to talk about and try to revive such lost arts of our beloved city Jaipur.

blue pottery_7.jpg

Team Jaipur Beat visited the Blue Pottery Art Centre of Jaipur and tried to look deeper into the making of blue pottery items.

blue pottery_12

The raw material used to make blue pottery items includes quartz, glass, rock salt, and natural gum from trees. The first three ingredients are finely churned in a traditional manual ‘chakki’ to ensure that the powder is grinded finely. Then the gum is added to the powder to make a paste that is put into different moulds. The paste is then left to set in the moulds for some time and a white coating is done on the items. Later they are run through the furnace where the chances of breakage are 60%!

blue pottery_1.jpg

And now this is where the real magic happens! The brown colour on the earthenware turns to sky blue with the rising temperature and further to a darker shade of blue and we finally get the traditional blue pottery items.

blue pottery_3.jpg

Blue pottery is not just limited to the making of pots and dishes, but it’s almost like you name it and it’s possible. From chandeliers to bathroom tiles and soap dispensers, showpieces of all kinds to bottles and corks, lamps and lucky charms, everything is available in breathtaking designs in blue pottery with different flowers, animals and other designs hand-painted on them.

So in this festive season, you know what to do about re-decorating your home.

Where to find blue pottery in Jaipur?
