Vancouver has much to offer in the way of outdoor fitness, from running and rollerblading on seawalls, to hiking and trail riding on the mountains. Another thing that our beautiful city has a lot of is RAIN. For those fitness enthusiasts that love to train outdoors there are inevitably days when you may not want to go outside to battle the elements. And for some this becomes an excuse not to exercise. The solution: A good back-up plan to ensure you don’t fall into this bad habit! The easiest one is to get into a gym, but you also may want to consider stair-climbing if you live or work in a high-rise building. Climbing stairs is a great workout. Walk or run up the flight of stairs from the ground floor. Walking down stairs can be hard on the knees so I recommend using the elevator to return back down for your subsequent climbs.
