InsideHook’s guide to self-improvement in 2014

  • 26 December 2013

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 would prefer to get the hell out of dodge.

Ditch the US of A and plan a stay at Finca Bellavista, a secluded treehouse eco-resort located on 600 acres of Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. Or stay closer to home with a fishing trip to the ruggedly appointed Muskegon River Lodge.


I told myself I wouldn’t dress like a schmo.

De-schmo yourself with Makers & Riders: performance gear that actually looks good. And over at Haberdash, you can suit you up in sharp tweed and all the fixins’ with their new in-house suiting line, Haberdash Bespoke No. 607.


I have male body issues.

Take your Pillsbury belly to Reach Beyond Fitness and learn to box while training for your next GoRuck challenge. Prefer a more personal touch? Talk to David Reavy, Matt Forte and Joakim Noah's personal trainer.


I’ve vowed never to do my own chores again.

Pressbox, the hi-tech, always-open dry cleaner, will help you save time by taking care of your laundry. And the friendly in-phone corner store Foxtrot will ensure you never run out of the essentials again.


In 2014 I would like to drink. A lot.

Hit up Rhine Hall, the city’s only microdistillery and tasting room specializing in apple brandy and grappa. Or pick up ready-to-serve cocktails in bottle-form from Crafthouse Cocktails, the new venture from award-winning mixologist and The Aviary’s resident bartender, Charles Joly.
