The Core Whistler
When you come to Whistler you don’t always want to stop having to do the things you love doing like going to the gym or your fitness classes so why have to.
The Core is located right outside our doors and has something for everyone.
What sets The Core apart from other gyms is that they have a 5,500 square foot indoor climbing wall that caters to climbs of any ability. The wall itself has beginner routes where you can learn the art of climbing, either with a friend (who knows what they are doing) or in a lesson. Once you know what to do you can go and tackle crack climbing, steep overhangs or tricky slab climbing. There is also bouldering, where you don’t use ropes or harnesses. You can spend hours choosing a route with all of the infinite possibilities and you don’t need a partner to tackle the wall.
If classes are what you are after you have come to the right place, the Core offers 12 different classes from Boot Fit, Cardio, Spin, Yoga, Pilates, Pump and Circuit training. You can also go one step further and join their Core Bootcamps that run for 6 weeks. There is also an amazing weight room that has everything you are looking for just in case rock climbing and classes is not your thing.
One of the great things about The Core is that you can go and experience it as a family, the kids love the rock wall and it is a great way to burn off steam and do a fun activity as a whole. There is even camps, birthday party options and after school programs to keep them keen.
The Core is located right in the heart of the village across from Buffalo Bills and can be reached at 604.905.7625
