Move Well, Be Well: Holiday Gift Guide

Move Well, Be Well: Holiday Gift Guide

November 26, 2020

The Holidays are such a joyful time of year; the snow begins to fall, cozy nights by the fire, warm cups of hot cocoa, and a time to connect with family and dear friends (whether that be from a distance or virtually). It is a time of year full of reflection, gratitude, love and gift giving. This year, we have put together some of our favourite holiday gift ideas to help you find the perfect something for someone special on your list that will help them Move Well, Be Well all year round!

For the person who enjoys running, ignite their passion throughout the winter with a new pair of runners, YakTrax (to keep them from falling), no tie Caterpy laces, a fresh pair of running socks and a one month subscription to RunQuest

Runner Holiday Gift Guide

 

For the person who is always cold, keep them warm this winter with a cozy pair of fuzzy socks and a warm pair of slippers. Bonus, treat them with a silk eye mask to help them fall into a peaceful slumber as they bundle up by the fire.

Slippers

For the person who is too busy helping everyone else to take time for themselves, our ultimate self care kit is perfect for telling that person it is okay to take a little time for themselves. This kit is complete with a soothing hot and cold pad, Addaday massage rollers (to ease any tension spots), Fisiocrem (to melt away the stress), and a registration to our next Masques, Meditation and Massage online class (a calming evening where they can pamper themselves with a spa quality facial rom the comfort of their home).

For the person who is looking for new ways to move, winter can be a challenging time to find ways to be active, especially when other gyms and fitness centres are being forced to close their doors, give this person the gift of movement with a free month subscription to our online fitness platform where they can discover new ways to move! Pair this gift with some fitness equipment like a travel roller, loop bandexercise tube to spice up their day-to-day workouts with.

 

 

For the person who can never have enough shoes, treat them to a new pair of shoes they will absolutely adore, or if you are nervous about getting their size right a gift card is a suitable substitution! Throw in a little travel size shoe cleaning kit as a stocking stuffer to keep their new shoes looks fresh all year round.

Putting Products to The Test: Rocky Mountain Edition
Putting Products to The Test: Rocky Mountain Edition

July 20, 2021

With summer in full-swing that means there’s plenty of new opportunities for adventure. I had the chance to embark on a hiking trip in the Rocky Mountains. The trip included five incredible hikes in the Rockies and surrounding regions, totalling just over 70km and 4800m of elevation gain (not an easy feat to say the least!). The scenic views were breathtaking and felt so fortunate to explore such an incredible area in our very own backyard. I came prepared with all the equipment needed to conquer the trails, some old and some new. I thought I would review some of the products from Orthoquest to help other hikers and trail fanatics take off on their journeys!

Portofino officially became a shoe company in 1959, but you may be surprised to know the actual owner’s grandparents were already in the shoe business well before that. The company first built a solid reputation in children's shoes imported from Italy and already respecting many orthopaedic criteria.

A Simple Way to Improve Your Performance: Cycling
A Simple Way to Improve Your Performance: Cycling

June 30, 2021

 Ask any of our team members what their favourite summer activity is in the Okanagan and most of them will say cycling. Ask any person in Kelowna the same question and you may get an overwhelming positive response to road cycling as well. There's just something about feeling the warm Okanagan breeze through your hair as you ride by vineyards and climb up and down some twisty hills and admire the stunning views of the lake from above that makes you feel alive. Cycling isn't all rainbows and butterflies though, in between some of your best rides are flat tires, scrapes and falls, sunburns, tired legs and sore feet. And for those cyclist who are training to compete or riding against your own personal best - you'll understand the frustration that each little mishap or discomfort can cause.
