Burton Hut Snowshoe Hike


This past weekend myself (Troy) and four friends (Kyle, Tim, Alsi, Klyner) went on a snowshoe adventure into Garabaldi Lake between Squamish and Whistler.  What a time, below is my account with tons of photo’s and captions!

Friday 5:15 am–Wake up.  Well that stings when you usually roll out of bed at 9am.  I had to get up and at it to take care of a few finishing touches and fuel up for a long day.  Kyle arrived, as he promised, at 6:07 am.  Two more guys to pick up and away we go.

Goal Setting – it really does work!


It is definitely that time of year again. If you are planning on setting health and fitness goals January seems to be the time to start. Seeing as the Mayan’s were wrong and the world didn’t end along with 2012, I can’t believe that there are any reasonable excuses left for not setting some health/fitness goals.

GWA Christmas Gift Idea’s


Christmas time is always fun with family and friends and food and drinks and GIFTS. We definitely go overboard with the gift giving portion so much in North America— I personally think that we should only receive gifts that are our ‘needs’ not ‘wants’. Why not make a list of 2-10 needs only??? Receiving something practical trumps getting something that might be cool initially, but in the long run not needed, nor wanted. That being said if fitness is on someone’s ‘needs’ list you know we have a number of GWA Christmas Specials. See below and contact us today!

New York Marathon: easiest run ever…


What can I say about the NY Marathon?  Not much actually…If you didn’t hear they cancelled the race late Friday evening after assuring all the participants up to the early afternoon that day that the race was on.  What do you do but make the best out of it, so can anyone say “Giants vs. Steelers” …Continue reading »
