Some 15 years ago, the City of Langford set out to rebrand itself as the sport tourism destination in British Columbia. Already home to Golf Canada, Cycling Canada and Rugby Canada, there’s still lots more to come in 2020.
Look out for a new boxing training facility to house Boxing BC headquarters at City Centre Park. The facility will help build B.C.’s provincial boxing team as well as local competitive boxers—not to mention providing our local community with another great option for recreational fitness, health and wellness.
“Martial arts have brought incredible experiences, people and lessons into my life. It is my passion and I hope to open this door to others to share my knowledge of this wonderful art. I have now retired from competition and have moved into my role as a personal trainer.” – Jason Heit. (Jason is also a certified ISKA Referee and COMMAND Judge.)
Indoor climbing has evolved into a very popular fitness activity and sport, which has resulted in its inclusion in the Olympics in Tokyo in 2020. As well as being an excellent sport for fitness, indoor climbing is an excellent social environment. Look out for BoulderHouse in the summer of 2020!
“We have no doubt the BoulderHouse will be a super- positive addition to the already very active sport community of Langford,” says Jean-Marc de la Plante, co-owner of BoulderHouse.
“You don’t have to have any specific training to get started, because it’s done on walls short enough for a mat to safely catch your fall. Anyone is welcome to show up unannounced for the first time. A quick safety orientation is all you need and you’re on your way. There are climbs that will challenge every level of ability, whether it’s your very first day or on your way to becoming a top-level boulderer.”
