Morning: How are you feeling? Tired? Same. We hear that an a.m. cup of freshly brewed coffee consumed an hour before you work out is optimal for overall performance. Hop on to the 504 streetcar and head to Jimmy’s Coffee on Portland Street for an irresistible dose of coffee and authentic conversation, all set against a cozy, eclectic backdrop.
Once the caffeine kicks in, it’s time to warm up those muscles and take a nice brisk walk to Studio Lagree – Hollywood’s hottest work out. Every move effectively combines core, endurance, cardio, balance, strength, and flexibility training.
After working your muscles to failure point, cool down by taking a walk over to Greenhouse Juice Co. to rejuvenate your body with a bottle of nutrient-dense juice.
Afternoon: What’s that you hear? Your friends are calling – it’s time for brunch. After heading home to WEST to freshen up, jump back onto the 504 streetcar to Portland Variety. Start with assorted pastries and espresso (who says you can’t have more than one cup of coffee a day?) before savouring whipped ricotta with roasted plums and pistachios on grilled sourdough.
Walk off your brunch with some shopping. Make your rounds through the line up of infamous and bespoke shops around King West. If shopping isn’t in the books for you, run some errands, get a fresh cut at GOTSTYLE, or schedule in a manicure at Her Majesty’s Pleasure. Don’t forget to take a moment to soak in the lively hustle and bustle as well as the brick and mortar architecture while you wander through the streets!
Evening: You must be tired after such an eventful day. Take a rest at Buca. Fresh, flavourful, and built on the perfect balance of old world and new – embrace the warm hospitality and experience one of Canada’s top restaurants rated by critics since its opening.
Once you finish up, grab your bag and put on your dancing shoes. Here’s where things get fun. Whether you have tickets to a concert or play, King West has you covered when it comes to entertainment. Join the clubs in the heart of King West where the good times never end. EFS is where the beautiful people come to play. Keep your eyes open for familiar famous faces!
Now this is a Saturday well spent! Weekends are a great chance to unplug from the day-to-day, and shift gears to relaxing and rejuvenating activities. This is your life. Live WEST.
