Take your Fitness Membership outdoors…
At the end of 2012 and at the beginning of 2013 northvanrec conducted a review of our Fitness Membership and we asked members what improvements we could make.

The overwhelming response from customers via surveys and in focus groups was “we need more outdoor options in summer”. So, new for 2013 we are excited to offer a range of outdoor classes which are part of your Fitness Membership and only available to Fitness Members.

We have also partnered with Endless Biking, Mountain Equipment Co-op and Cycling BC to give you the chance to experience some summer activities that you wouldn’t expect from northvanrec. Explore the famous North Shore mountain bike trails with local experts Endless Biking, learn the techniques for road riding in a group from Cycling BC coaches or get started with running this summer at our MEC new runners clinic.
