You Belong Here
Whistler Fitness Vacations is a luxury fitness retreat for women of beginner levels, who are outside of healthy weight range (when they arrive) in Whistler. We’ve had guests lose up to 72 pounds during their 8 week stay here, so in some of the pictures on this site you might see customers of healthy weight. This is because they’ve been here for a while!
Our weight loss camp allows guests to pamper themselves with the incredible opportunity of time – time to do nothing but focus on getting themselves back into the best shape of their lives.
Women from all over the world sign up for our full time immersion program, choosing a wellness program over drinking margarita’s at the beach, or going on a cruise. They often would have liked to join a hiking or active holiday with a group, but have concern that their fitness might not be standard of the group pace. As everyone who joins WFV is of beginner fitness level, they don’t need to worry about that here! It feels so good to know that you’re going to fit in with the group 🙂
Fitness At Your Level
Recently I went on a guided hiking tour to Everest Base Camp with my parents (in their 70’s!) and yes, we did see many people ‘lagging behind the group’ on the trails, slowing down the pace. This became quite problematic because the days only had a limited amount of day light. I mean, if you hadn’t reached the lodge by 5pm or so, really you’d be hiking in the dark. The groups also got cold if they had to wait around, and the person who was slowing everyone down always felt terrible.
Feeling like a burden is exactly the opposite of what you want to feel when going on an amazing fitness vacation for yourself. You want to feel GREAT! AMAZING! FIT! But if you’ve been eating too much and exercising too little for a few years, at least 30 pounds extra will likely be gained. Our weight loss camp is a powerful and smart first stop, for women who want to get back to being the active person they once were – and have the freedom to book any group fitness trip in the future, without worrying that they’ll hold people back!
Delicious Food (That You Cook Yourself)
Whistler Fitness Vacations is indeed rigorous exercise and restricted food intake, but most of our customers say that they never feel hungry. The food program (The Planet Friendly Diet) that we follow was designed exclusively for WFV, therefore our exact workout program is factored into the recipe development. It’s dietician and medically approved, loved by hundreds of customers since 2010, and by thousands of North Americans who have picked up a copy of the paperback in their local bookstore.
The Planet Friendly Diet is moderately low carb, gluten, wheat, soy, dairy and meat free. Guests cook their own meals from the privacy of their own kitchen, which is really nice, especially for those who are staying a few weeks at our weight loss camp. It feels more like home, when you don’t have to go to the restaurant for every meal, plus you learn how to cook the dishes – making the program easy to continue from home.
WFV Has 17 Weeks Of Fitness Retreats In 2019
Whistler Fitness Vacations has 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8 week programs running from April 21 through to September 7, 2019. With six intakes scheduled over the season, new guests start and finish usually on the same date as each other. It’s nice to go through the entire experience together, with the same progression.
While some guests wind up at WFV through simply wanting to lose weight and get fit, many others find themselves here for personal reasons. Some are grieving the end of their marriage, some are celebrating it! Some may have been caring for an ailing parent for a few years, and now want to take time for themselves. Others have supportive spouses who want dearly to see their wives or girlfriends feel happy again in their skin. Bridal party bookings are beginning to be more common, with friends signing up for a week usually to drop a few last pounds before the big day. Many guests are home-makers and crave structure and purpose to their day. Regardless of your motivation to join us, you’ll be in good company with a team of supportive women who are all here to take care of their health better.
