How are you going to spend your Canada Day long weekend? Are you going to drink your face off or do some outdoor activities with your family and friends?
There are lots of adventures you can do, especially if you live in beautiful Vancouver! This Canada Day I challenge you to refrain from day drinking and do something for your health. Your body will thank you!
Vancouver has fun for families in Grandview Park https://www.facebook.com/events/427799964271358/ This event includes aboriginal performances, live bands, children’s games and activities, and a giant inflatable slide.
Why not hike the chief in Squamish, rent a SUP board in Deep Cove or watch the fireworks from a kayak in English Bay? Swim in the ocean or a lake, or go for a family walk in Stanley Park.
You can try this beach workout when you are enjoying the beach this Canada Day weekend. Be sure to drink plenty of water before, during, and after working out on the beach.
Check out this 30 minute beach workout by shape.com. Apparently you can burn up to 50 % more calories per minute by working out in the sand compared to the grass or pavement. The sand will reduce the impact on the joints. This can reduce post workout inflammation and soreness. https://www.shape.com/fitness/workouts/buh-bye-boring-beach-workouts-build-serious-strength-sand
