It’s no question that Parkland Mall has received a bad reputation with the loss of it’s anchor stores over the past few years. Many stores within the mall still remain empty but I recently spent an afternoon there and learned that it is the place to go for all of your fitness needs.
Get Sweaty at GoodLife Fitness and Fit4Less
These two new anchors have been a great asset to the mall. Both offering huge spaces to get your sweat on through extensive equipment selections, personal training, group fitness classes, yoga, Ninja training and more.
I attended my favourite group fitness class, BodyPump at GoodLife.
Refuel at Jugo Juice
After a tough, sweaty workout, it was time to refuel. Jugo Juice, located in the food court, has tons of fresh smoothie options that you can customize to meet your needs. I chose a green smoothie packed with fruits and veggies that helped to tide me over until dinner time.
Update Your Fitness Wardrobe at Winners and Ardene
With the brand new, gorgeous Winners, there is plenty of opportunity to update your fitness wardrobe. I spent far too long browsing racks upon racks of fitness clothes. I gave in to new Adidas shorts and tank. Ardene is another stop for the ladies to make for cute workout clothes in the latest trends.
Pack Your Gym Bag at Bentley
Bentley offers more than just luggage and backpacks. They also had an entire wall of gym bags, waiting to be loaded up with all your gear.
Stock Up On Supplements From Vitality Health Foods
If supplements are part of your healthy living routine, Vitality Health Food has a selection of things to add to your stack.
Take 5 at the In Harmony Meditation Studio
We are learning more and more that the act of slowing down and being still is just as beneficial for our bodies as a good workout. There is now a full meditation studio located in the mall to serve this purpose. They offer private or small group classes, reiki sessions and more!
It’s true that Parkland Mall hasn’t been a go-to destination for shoppers in quite awhile, but there really hard some hidden gems found within the halls. Grab a fit friend and see for yourself.
