Okay, so it’s still only January but that’s what this month of the new year is for, right? Ringing in our resolutions — for many of us that means pushing ourselves to the edge of fitness. Whether we’re charging up Rattlesnake Ridge, stretching into sun salutations in local studios, or paddling out over the still-frigid PNW waters, we’re living to be outside channeling the strength that comes with movement.

At this Whistler fitness retreat, tough workouts and deep relaxation go hand-in-hand.

Stillness surrounds you as you soak in the hot tub and stare out at the fog rolling in over the snow-capped Coast Mountains of Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort. It’s completely quiet — except for your loud, throbbing muscles, still screaming at you after six hours of exercise in a single day.
