How Whistler Fitness Vacations Is Different
“If you want the best year ever of your life, you’re going to have to come up with a vision,” Tony Robbins, the great motivational speaker once said. “What do you want? What’s going to be different this year? What do you want to change, what do you want to transform?”
Finding the best weight loss retreat is sort of the same vision.
And when creating that vision, it’s important to be realistic. Most people overestimate what they want to achieve in their fitness goals, and when trying to find the best weight loss retreat that ‘checks off all the boxes’, they lose sight of what they really want.
There’s always the uncertainty as you research, with many gorgeous websites showcasing fitness retreats and weight loss camps that seem (on the surface) to be the dream. Yet as you dig a little deeper, you start to question. Could you go there for a month and feel at home? Do you want to be with a ton of people, or just a few? And what about being in fitness classes all day, is that really what you feel like doing? (Hint: we think not, that’s why WFV only has a couple of classes a week).
Is WFV The Best Weight Loss Retreat (For You?)
One thing for sure, is that Whistler Fitness Vacations wins the hearts of people who are willing to get uncomfortable. Pushing to your maximum within the safety guidelines each, and every day… that truly takes trust of the coach who is asking you to do it. There’s uncertainty also. And some guests don’t like that.
I don’t know how your body is going to respond to the physical changes and stresses as we go through the fitness programming each day. So therefore, I don’t know either what you should be doing in the afternoon sometimes, until we see how your (for example) ankle responds to the morning workout. This is the customization that all top athletes pay for, and it’s the human service that makes us the best weight loss retreat possible. Most of our guests agree.
One defining thing about our weight loss retreat for women is that there’s no alcohol permitted during your stay. This can be a love-hate factor, but sheez does it skyrocket your results! Here’s some of the reasons why we take a break from alcohol at Whistler Fitness Vacations.
Cat Smiley Coaching Style
As the owner and fitness director for all programs, it’s a pleasure to be invited into the exciting challenge that lies ahead for every new guest.
Our guests are more than just customers to me, they become friends and I couldn’t imagine doing my job any other way. I’ve always believed that you coach the person before the athlete, and athletes have to have safe places.
I care about earning the trust of each person. With this as a high importance, we usually don’t talk together about weight loss outside of your consultations. You have to know that I care about you first as a person (learn how I roll over at catsmiley.com )
Here are some reasons why I sincerely believe that a stay at Whistler Fitness Vacations is worth your time, energy and money. I’ve included some things in here that one of our recent guests Jordie Thorneycroft said about her experience.
Workouts At Your Level
At WFV you’ll have daily custom adventure workouts on the schedule; hiking, biking and kayaking with gorgeous sunsets that you can watch from the top of the mountain! Whistler Fitness Vacations is really a beautiful place for a weight loss camp, and we think you’ll love it here. Everyday you’ll be outside in the breathtaking forest, mountain and lakeside trails of Whistler. We’ll get you up close and personal with Canada’s most famous resort.
You deserve to feel amazing and our integrative fitness programming will get you there. It doesn’t matter how fast you are, or how beginner you are…. As long as you show up with the mindset to be coached, we’ll take you from there either working with me directly, or placing you in the care of the best suited fitness trainer or fitness guides for that day.
We meet you at your level and everyone is outside of healthy weight range, of beginner fitness level.
Expect incredible results that empower. We go above and beyond for our guests, with immersive workshops, education classes, guided cardio adventures, fitness classes and personal coaching.
The fitness classes can be really hard, so the guided cardio adventures are a nice way to break up the day. They’re like the light happy moments of the day where you just switch your mind off and let your body move…. It sure is a beautiful place to move. There’s a reason why Whistler is so famous. – Jordie Thorneycroft
