Vancouver Workouts: There are no WMSC organized sessions in Vancouver at this point. We strongly encourage participation in school sports, other cross training sports (gymnastics, ball sports, mt. & road biking, martial arts, etc) or utilizing any of our posted workouts. These can be done alone or perferably with a partner to challenge each other.
Joining a gym with instructors to keep an eye on your technique is also highly recommended.
Some recommendations for good gyms where some other club members workout are as follows. If you have any suggestions or further recommendations please send them to Rob Boyd (email@example.com) and we will post them as well.
