InsideHook New Years Resolutions

This year, don’t make it so easy to disappoint yourself. Below, a few highly achievable resolutions and how to carry them out in 2014.

I want to get in shape. Because damn.
Burn calories while dangling precariously from 50-foot-high rock walls at
The Cliffs Climbing and Fitness, the largest climbing gym in the Northeast. Or sign up for Haymakers for Hope and learn to box while training to fight a total stranger in front of a thousand people for charity.

I’d like to concentrate on my career. 
Hit up Silverchair Partners for your next assistant – they’ve sourced talent for the likes of Soros and Diddy. Then supercharge your contacts with RelSci, a members-only Rolodex filled with two million of the world’s wealthiest and most influential people.

I said I’d get outdoors more often.
Kite Club NY offers lessons in zooming across the snowy tundra just a couple hours north of the city, while the summer months are perfect for Adirondack retreat Camp Orenda, with cozy canvas cabins and gourmet grub.

I want to travel more.
Ditch the US of A with an overseas travel plan from
Obliko Morale that stays flexible according to your gallivanting. Or stay closer to home and rent the most badass summer homes the Hamptons have to offer.


I want to drink more. Seems achievable.
Greenpoint’s Torst is run by a mad Scandinavian brewmaster and features 21 wood-handled taps dishing out the world’s rarest beers. Meanwhile, Rochelle’s on the LES has 90+ varieties of whiskey behind the pine, super friendly bartenders and amazing wings.
