You can never have too big a list for hangout spots.
GT12 is Steve Nash Fitness World and Sports Club's high-intensity interval training circuit built to help you burn calories, lose weight, train functional movement, improve strength, and boost cardio.
It's also a great place to make friends with its '12 teams of 2' style of working out.
To help push the community aspect within GT12, we're putting together a list of great hangout spots before or after a session of GT12 at Park Royal Sports Club!
From a wide-variety of pastries, breads, breakfast and lunch items, and locally-sourced espresso beans roasted in Vancouver, this makes a great hangout spot to get that morning caffeine before a session of GT12, or after with your GT12 buddies.
2. Second Cup
Second Cup is a Canadian coffee roaster that prides itself on four things: no preservatives, no artificial colours, no artificial flavours, and no high-fructose corn syrup.
According to their website, 85% of their products are Clean Label, meaning if you're looking for a clean coffee option, this is the place to be. No need to
They offer a variety of beverages—hot or cold—from smoothies, brewed drinks, hot chocolate, and espressos.
You can also choose from breakfast and lunch items, baked goods, and Pinkberry frozen yogurt! Not a bad choice to stop by with some of your GT12 friends before or after a session.
Clean eats and good times. Need a snack before GT12, or want to re-fuel after a good, sweaty session, Freshii is a quick, inexpensive, and healthy option for you and your GT12 team.
Choose from a wide-variety of salads, delicious wraps, yummy bowls, burritos, soups, smoothies, juices, and snacks.
If you need to get something in your stomach before a session, or wanna stop by for a quick chat and a post-workout meal, this is where you and your GT12 buddies can hang.
4. Blaze Pizza
If you want something delicious—and maybe a little cheat meal—after your GT12 session, you won't feel too bad about eating a slice with your GT12 fam at Blaze Pizza.
Blaze Pizza is well-known in the U.S. for being a quick, delicious, and healthier alternative to its counterparts.
That and its well-known marketing through NBA superstar, LeBron James.
Blaze Pizza takes pride in their fresh made-from-scratch dough, exceptional quality, all at lightning fast speed. There are three locations in the Lower Mainland, and one of them is at Park Royal Shopping Centre, a quick walk away from the club itself!
You can build your own pizza from a serious selection of sauces, cheeses, meats, veggies, and some finishes.
They've also got some simple salads if you're trying to avoid going over that calorie or macro limit!
5. Loblaws City Market
Right next to the gym might be one of the best grocery stores in the area.
The Lowblaws City Market is great for all the buddies, moms, friends and family to grocery shop. It's a one-of-a-kind market-style experience, with some organic, artisanal options to choose from.
Also, if you're craving a good coffee or breakfast option before or after a GT12 session, they've got a great deal on coffee and some delicious, generously-filled sandwiches and bagels at their cafe.
