I've been going to the core for a lot of years now whenever I'm in Whistler. Firstly, the staff are all awesome and very friendly upon arrival. Very efficient to get you sorted out, whether a single drop in or week pass. The facilities themselves are AWESOME!!! It reminds me of one of my old school gyms, in that it is subterranean, almost dungeon like, but brightly lit. As you walk into the gym area, you are gong down stairs past a two story massive climbing wall and area. They have a cross training area upstairs and another room that I believe they use for yoga, aerobics and other group classes. There is also a good assortment of cardio equipment from treadmills, bikes and rowing machines. The gym tho, is my domain. Almost 2 full sets of dumbbells up to 100lbs, with one set each of 110 and 120lbs. There are a couple benches and squat cages, a cable machine, Smith machine, leg press, sit/stand calf and a few wither pieces. A good amount of free weights are there and some professional powerlifting weights as well. It can get a bit cozy in there with 10 - 12 people, but at 7am, it's not that bad. I'm so glad I found this gym 7-8 years ago as I now have no reason to not train. Truly a great establishment with great staff.

"Amazing facility! Love the people, the energy, and the. I LOVE the classes available. I am an advanced athlete and drop into the pump and spin classes whenever I'm in Whistler.. It's so fun because people of ALL fitness levels, and ages can come to the classes and get a hard workout in while having fun and meeting new people. The teachers are awesome at making sure no matter what fitness level you are you will feel the burn. Also the yoga classes are lovely. The Whistler Core is such a unique and diverse facility with endless options of classes, a huge weight and cardio section, and an excellent place for climbing learners and experts to practice their skills! I don't live in Whistler but am always excited to drop into the Core while I'm here."
