‘New year new me’ – as the saying goes, January is the best time of the year to make changes. If you’re still searching for something new to start this year, then look no further because we’ve got it covered. From kickboxing to cooking classes, here are some brilliant hobby ideas to help you begin the year with an exciting start. Best of all, these just a stone’s throw from Fizzy.
Just on the doorstep of our Hayes development, The Nest Climbing venue is the coolest new kid on the block. Bouldering is already a favourite of so many, so why not try it out for yourself? Alongside their first-class climbing centre, there’s also fitness studios, a gym and a café, all under one roof.
If you’re looking to start something completely out of your comfort zone in 2020 then the Hayes Karate school might be the challenge you are looking for. They’re also currently running some fantastic promotions to help kick start your year.

If you're looking to get fit, indulge in your competitive side or make some new pals, badminton could well be your perfect new year hobby.
