Get outside between gym sessions


Bruno and I on a hike at Mount Doug


What do you do on your days away from the gym?


I get asked this question a lot and I always suggest to people to get out and move still on days off. Now this doesn't mean a 10km run, but perhaps a 30min walk, or a hike or stroll through the woods. Especially if you have a furry companion to take with you it makes it much more enjoyable and you kill 2 birds with 1 stone.


We live in such a beautiful place year round and we have amazing parks and hiking spots all over the CRD and at our fingertips. So despite the now rainy season coming upon us, get outside walk, hike, run if you feel so inclined and enjoy the natural beauty that is Vancouver Island.
