Why wellness retreats in B.C. are worth staying local for

Whistler Fitness Vacations is one of the best wellness retreats in B.C., specializing in weight loss and hiking vacations.

How to fall back in love with your province

Normally our wellness retreats in B.C. welcome guests from all over the world. This year, it’s 100% domestic travellers – most from within the province. For some reason, tradition perhaps, wellness spa vacations have the most stigma in the United States. It’s fantastic that wellness retreats in B.C. like WFV are being supported by Canadian travellers.

BC’s tourism businesses are eager to welcome you back this summer and your support is more crucial than ever. Remember, with the international border closed, our businesses are relying on local support now more than ever. – HelloBC

We’re traveling in smaller groups this year (and next) to allow us to physical distance easier. With a maximum of 4 guests per fitness retreat, you get the best possible value. In this article I’ll share ways to feel connected to the place where you live – beautiful British Columbia.

Whistler Fitness Vacations is one of the most unique weight loss retreats in Canada.

We believe that you should participate in a wide variety of workouts and adventures feeling completely comfortable and safe. But this isn’t what makes us different – any weight loss centre is judgement free and adaptable. What sets us apart from other weight loss boot camp programs and wellness spa retreats:

  1. We work towards change. Our customers don’t want to accept being out of the healthy weight range as a permanent future.
  2. The root causes are addressed, but not in an intensely dramatic or serious way. Let’s get out there and move your beautiful body up that mountain first!
  3. No boring diet talk or body shaming of ourselves allowed! And no negative self talk about fitness abilities either. All good stuff here, upwards all the way!
  4. We’re not trying to be skinny, slim or look a certain way in a swimsuit. The goal for all wellness retreats is happy and healthy.

Spending more time in one location

Consider a slower travel pace this summer to help curb the spread. Instead of checking in and out of multiple destinations during one trip, choose one destination and one accommodation for your entire trip, and use that as a ‘home-base’ for exploring all the destinations nearby. – HelloBC

Have you been to Whistler?

Whistler Fitness Vacations is located in the heart of the spectacular Coast Mountains – less than two hours from Vancouver, British Columbia. Our town is renowned globally for our amazing scenery, friendly town and year-round mountain adventures. Whistler is Canada’s premier year-round destination and was Host Mountain Resort for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

Distinguished by impressive twin mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb is surrounded by forested valleys, rivers and lakes. The resort offers countless outdoor adventures. Skiing and snowboarding are the biggest draws, but golf, mountain biking, and a long list of other winter and summer activities bring people here and bring them back again and again.
