If eating well and staying active are the foundations of a healthy lifestyle than living in Whistler already means you are taking a step in the right direction. In addition to abundant local food and physical activities, Whistler has a number of resources that can aid in maintaining overall health. What’s more, many of the locals rely heavily on using these resources to maintain longevity in the activities that initially drew them to the mountains. Staying healthy in Whistler is just part of the mountain culture and here is how it’s done!
The Green Mustache
We are all busy, especially when we are trying to get a lap or two on the mountain in between picking the kids up or getting work done. It is a common problem to eat food that is convenient and this can have negative health effects. Luckily, there are nutritious and fast food options available in town, one of such is The Green Mustache. Expect delicious organic eats on the go!
When visiting this community grocery store, anticipate local produce and a well informed Wellness Center. The commitment of Nesters to the growing need for natural health keeps the store stocking products and foods to meet every demand, dietary restriction, health ailment and the quest for optimal health!
Whistler’s Farmers Market
Just down the road from Whistler lies Pemberton where some of the most nutritious produce and sustainable meat comes from. In the summer and fall months, you will find the Pemberton harvests at the Whistler Farmer’s Market. Not only does supporting vendors help community members, it is also an easy and fun way to eat healthy!
Training for everyday life is something that’s important when your everyday life involves skiing, biking, hiking, swimming, golfing and so much more. This mentally leads a lot of Whistler locals to turn to the gym to help maintain their fitness for current activities. In addition to the gym, Meadow Park Sports Centre also offers swimming, aerobic classes, racquetball, squash, and ice skating- making training for life FUN!
If you are looking to take your gym sessions to the next level, visit Opus Athletics, home of CrossFit Whistler. This gym has classes that will cater to all your fitness goals and are guaranteed to challenge you!
MAINTAIN A HEALTHY MIND
Whistler has an incredible yoga community with teachers that will help take you on a physical, spiritual and mental journey. You will find NeoAlpine Yoga tucked away in Function Junction and a full range of classes offered. In addition to being great for the mind, yoga is a perfect addition to spending multiple days on the hill- your hips will thank you!
There are so many available resources in Whistler that can help create and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
