It was a successful Summer Fit Camp that saw the Freestyle Fitness Team smash their 5000 calorie goal for the July 1st long weekend!
Day 1: We started with a scenic 3 hour Kettle Valley Railroad bike ride that left from Summerland, then a walk down Tuc-el-nuit Lake after a fabulous meal of spelt pasta and homemade meat sauce courtesy of Brenda.
Day 2: The day started with steel oats with fresh fruit and smoothies, before hiking McIntyre Bluff that overlooked Gallagher Lake in the morning. Next, Freestyle athletes switched their runners for their golf clubs and played a shotgun start 9 holes at the beautiful St. Andrews by the Lake course, located just outside of Okanagan Falls. The evening was capped with baked portabella stuffed mushrooms and tossed salad.
Day 3: Next morning started with another healthy muffin and smoothie, then a run and weight session at the Oliver gym. We came back to bagel and eggs with veggies for a late morning breakfast. On mountain bikes the Summer Fit team got challenged by the steep 2 km Hester Creek Winery hill, then circled the outskirts of Oliver and toured the Desert Hills and Silver Sage wineries. BBQ chicken and grilled asparagus and zucchinis capped another healthy meal for the day.
The final day saw the Freestyle Fitness members run a hard 5 km time trial, followed by a refreshing stand up paddle board off of Skaha Lake.
Next up for Freestyle Fitness - Come join the Freestyle athletes as we kick off the Summer Fit training runs starting this Sunday at Mundy Park. These runs will vary each weekend and will finish with a challenging hike to the top of the Squamish Gondola. Stay tuned for the Summer Run Schedule.
