Great Winnipeg fitness deals on now from gym passes to personal training sessions.

Have no fear subscribers, I am still going to provide information regarding hotter than hot fitness deals! If you’re in the Lindenwoods area, perhaps consider signing up for a couple of deals through WagJag at Anytime Fitness, with passes starting at just $20!

Looking for an affordable introduction to working with a personal trainer? Pick up eight sessions for $99 (Reg. $256) with C-Pow Total Body Fitness.

There’s also deals on Kettlebell workout videos (if you’re more a home gym kind of person), and even discounted tickets ($10 reg. $20) to the Wellness Expo at the Winnipeg Convention Centre (Jan 11-13). Heck, there’s even a deal to get Chatelaine magazine subscription for $20, plus two cookbooks.

These deals are limited, so better get ’em on now if you want to take advantage. Happy deal shopping!


Anytime Fitness – Double Deals!

My current moving process has kept my evenings fairly full, but I have still managed to squeeze in another class at Peg City Yoga with a couple of co-workers. I will make it a priority this week to get that post about this adorable Osborne Village studio up and running.

In the meantime, my quest for affordable fitness has found not one, but two deals for Anytime Fitness on Ness Ave. One’s a freebie and one’s a bargain buy!

One is courtesy of those little facebook ads that pop up on the side. If you “like” the Anytime Fitness facebook page, you will notice a free gift for a two week membership. This is a great option for trying it out!

If you’ve got $20 and don’t want to cram a trial into a two-week period, you can get 20 visits for $20 through a teambuy deal. I bought a similar voucher for Anytime Fitness through ($15 for 20 visits), but a $1 per visit is still awesome value. Also, you get a 20% discount should you convert over to a membership and there’s a 20% discount on tanning with the voucher, if that’s your thing.

My one complaint is the lack of aerobic class schedule online at Anytime Fitness as that’s one of my main reasons for picking up a gym membership.

So what’s it going to be? Take your pick and get active!


If you’ve ever attended a yoga class, then you’re likely familiar with the idea of setting up an “intention” for your practice. The instructor often gives examples of what this might entail, such as “follow the breath,” “don’t let your mind wander,” or “challenge yourself in one pose today.”

Before I go further with this blog, I will set an intention and introduce myself. This blog won’t go anywhere if I don’t give it a purpose.

So here it goes.

Much like setting your intention at the start of a yoga class, the intention is set for the future of Winnipeg Fitness Explorer











I am a 28-year-old professional writer/editor, so my days are relatively sedentary. I don’t mind this fact. It does mean that I have to spend my free time working out. Instead of turning exercise into some nasty grunt work, I’m a firm believer in the advice that cross-training your body is best for your health both physically and mentally. Trying a wide range of activities is stimulating and it helps with getting that desired full-body workout.

It will also likely touch on the three areas of fitness: strength, cardio and flexibility.  I strive to improve all three of these areas through my varied fitness experiences.

My writing  job pays the bills but doesn’t exactly equal big bucks. This means I have to get creative with finding ways to work out.

What this blog is NOT: a weight loss guide. A rant or whine about not losing/gaining inches or weight. It is not a detailed story of struggle (e.g. couldn’t stay on the treadmill for 40 mins) or triumph (e.g. about the extra set of reps I squeezed in) because let’s be honest, WHO CARES? If you are looking for weight loss/fitness motivation, then this blog is not for you. I am not a guru or a fitness expert, but I have a fair bit of experience trying different fitness routines out. In other words, I’m not a complete noob.

What Winnipeg Fitness Explorer intends to do: point people in the direction of the city’s best places to work out, get active and try new things (on the cheap–and it is possible!) If this sounds like something you are looking for, then you should subscribe to my blog pronto!

To sum it up, I am interested in living a healthy lifestyle, open to trying new things (yet am still shy, so the ease/comfort of trying something new is definitely part of the evaluation) and totally, over-the-moon excited to share them.
