Whether it’s getting in shape or getting out of your comfort zone, it’s easy to stay on top of your New Year’s resolutions in Vancouver. Here are four ways to conquer your 2018 goals, Vancouver-style…
Resolution #1: Get in Shape
Oh yes, we’re all familiar with this one. In Vancouver you can forget all about the boring old gym membership and take your workout routine out to the great outdoors. With endless miles of forest, ocean and mountains, Vancouver is a natural playground and the perfect place to work on your fitness. Tackle the Snowshoe Grind at Grouse Mountain, a 4.3-kilometre trail of wintry alpine terrain; cycle the scenic Stanley Park seawall, an 8.8-kilometre path circling the park; or tone those arms with a paddle up Indian Arm in a sea kayak.
Resolution #2: Eat Healthy
Vancouver is home to a plethora of delicious plant-focused restaurants. It’s easy to make the healthy choice at these tasty vegan and vegetarian eateries: The Acorn (3995 Main), Virtuous Pie (583 Main), Kokomo (611 Gore), Indigo Age Café (436 Richards) and Heirloom (1509 W 12th).
Resolution #3: Put Yourself Outside of Your Comfort Zone
Vancouver offers many ways to get outside your comfort zone. Conquer your stage fright with an impov workshop by Vancouver TheatreSports or overcome your fear of heights on a Via Ferrata Tour at the Sea To Sky Gondola.
