As promised, I’m on the hunt for to find out what’s awesome about all the workout and healthy eating options downtown for those of us who are working on living healthier this year as a resolution! First up was a look at Goodlife Downtown, now – outdoor cardio!
What: The Forks Arctic Glacier Winter Park & The River Trail
Where: The Forks
What’s awesome about it: Three words: Outdoor dance cardio. On skates. Ok, that’s really five words. Tomorrow, plus Jan 13th, 20th, and 25th, there’s an event at the Forks called Soul On Ice – where DJ Hunnicut and DJ Co-op set up at the Canopy Skating Rink and transform it into a dance floor on ice! Fun, fitness-resolution helping, and something only downtown Winnipeg could have 🙂
If you can’t wait till tomorrow with that beautiful sun shining, there’s tons to do already to get active: Distance skating on the river trail, skating under the canopy, pick-up hockey next to the Scotiabank stage, snowboarding in the park, tobogganing down the hill (yes, I think walking up the hill dragging your sled gets you fitness points! 🙂 ), and I’ve seen cross-country skiiers taking to the trails as well!
Next up – Getting in some “Oms” with yoga!
