I have been trying to find out information about Soumen’s Workout on google for ages and never been able to exactly figure out WHAT it was. So I finally ventured into one of the centers here on Ashutosh Mukherjee road . What gave the overpowering impetus to my perenially-growing-lazy-ass, was seeing myself on one of those security camera televisions. For a minute I saw it and thought, “who’s that fat aunty with that skinny boy” and when I realised it was mee and Atul (who seems to be very unfairly losing weight), it totally freaked me out!! snifffffff..
Neways, till that time, all I knew about Soumen’s Workout was through their ads all over Kolkata declaring “Lose 2 Inches in 4 Days. No Machine Zone” ..(and then after the IPL, i kept seeing “Korbo Lorbo Kombo” slogan on their posters) There were so many koschens in my mind..what was it exactly? No Machine Zone..Okay so its not a gym..Is it like the weight loss centers like VLCC , Vibes? Hmm Maybe not cuz I guess they use machines too..Do they give you some weird tasting pills to lose weight? Or is it a Aerobics Center?? Or Yoga? Or Whatiteeeeeeez!!???!
So, as I said, I finally decided to just go there and SEE what they do — here ‘s what ALL I found out :
1. It’s run by this guy named Soumen ( Duh ! :))
2. It looked almost like Aerobics to me but Soumen say it’s not completely aerobics. The workout is like 20-30 minutes of Cardio and warm up exercises and then 30 minutes of floor exercises targetting any 2 areas of your body (Like waist and hamstrings or Abs and Back etc) They also claim that they dont repeat the same exercise for an entire month but for almost 30 minutes everyday you do the same thing..stretching and warm up exercises and the cardio..
3. It costs around 1.5k per month for 26 classes a month (Sounds like a good deal.6 days a week is a lot!). If you take the 3 month package it costs 4k (first month you need to pay 500 for admission)
4. They have 1 hour batches starting from 6:45 in the morning till 8 in the night. I think from 1 pm to 4 pm there are no batches though. You can go for any batch on any day.
5. They have many centers all over Kolkata..Salt Lake, Park St, Gariahat etc etc.. (I guess the main one is the Ashutosh Mukherjee Road one)
6. They claim to make me “perfect” in 1.5 months 😉 lol..Yeah so they say I can actually lose 2 inches in 4 days (Tomm is my 4th day..We shall see if I have lost anything).Plus they say, I can attain my ideal figure in 1.5 months! That’s not too far :).. But you know even If its not ideal, I shall go with the old adage ” Something is better than nothing ” :)..
7. You can contact them at : 9830216280
8. There are no other Aerobics Classes this side of the town..So definitely worth giving a try.
I can’t think of any more details that i can give. I sure hope this is useful to someone :)..
