|IT’S FITNESS FRIDAY
presented by Barre Fitness!
Hopefully you’ll join me once a month here on VIA and be motivated to get fit! I’ll be sharing recipes, exercises, class and workshop plans, ideas and tips, and much much more.
There is so much available at our fingertips in this beautiful city of ours, to keep us active and motivated! If there is anything you want to learn more about or think we should feature, send me a tweet, or write us on Facebook, and maybe that will be our next topic!
Do you believe this amazing weather?! I hope you’re all getting outside at least a little bit each day and enjoying it! There are lots of events coming up around the city as well, from Khatsahlano to the Celebration Of Light…make sure you enjoy it while it lasts.
I decided to try and start a comprehensive list of some of the trails and hikes in and around Vancouver, from the obvious (Grouse Grind) to the out-of-town and not-for-beginners ones.
PLEASE write us on facebook or tweet at me with your suggestions and I’ll add them to the list! – esp. if you have a photo to go along with it! (be sure to tag it with #VancouverIsAwesome in Instagram!)
Oh and always make sure you have enough water with you, and TELL SOMEONE where you are going. Safety first!
Elevation Gain: 853 meters
Everyone knows the Grouse Grind… a difficult 1.5/2hr (or less if you’re awesome at it!) climb straight up the side of Grouse Mountain. But hey, when you can visit a grizzly bear or have a beer on the deck at the top, kind of makes it worth it. Not to mention the view and the gondola ride down.
