Three-Day Fitness Program in Outdoor Playground
Whistler, the host mountain of the 2010 Winter Olympics, and its surrounding mountains and lakes run the gamut of active, outdoor entertainment. More than two million visitors come annually to ski and bike the trails etched into the Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains and to swim and canoe the sparkling waters of Alta Lake. Just a few minutes' walk from the lake, the 4.5-star Whistler Alpine Chalet Retreat & Wellness hosts a three-day fitness program amid its scenic surroundings.
Fitness programs accommodate all ability levels and are capped at groups of 16 people, which allow a staff of yogis, trainers, nutritionists, and life coaches to individually customize each participant’s experience. A sample itinerary gives an idea of each day’s proceedings: morning meditation sessions give way to outdoor exercise, educational seminars, and cooking lessons. Daily sweat-inducing activities include power yoga, which focuses on toning muscles, weight training, and ab exercises. Three balanced, healthy meals per day, such as whole-grain wraps, and two daily snacks, such as power smoothies, fuel the program as petroleum-soaked baguettes do NASA spacecraft.
After an intense day of training, guests can hit the outdoor jacuzzi or curl up around the fireplace before retiring to the Pine, Birch, Fir, Cedar, Maple, or Cottonwood rooms, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis. White bedding and a surfeit of natural light permeate each room; the Maple room features a gas fireplace, and in the Cottonwood room, a juliet balcony and a writing desk inspire quiet contemplation and a commitment to speaking in iambic pentameter.
