About Us

Whistler Fitness Vacations is a luxury weight loss retreat for women, located in Whistler, B.C., Canada.

We provide award-winning fitness programming, lifestyle coaching, holistic nutrition and amazing outdoor adventures to women of beginner fitness levels (who are outside healthy weight range and are between 20 and 70 years old).

Each day is packed with an amazing low-impact yet high intensity schedule with up to 4 different beginner paces per session.

Activities include hiking, biking, kayaking, water workouts, strength training, small-group personal training, outdoor fitness classes

and learning opportunities. Educational workshops include personal development, fitness and nutrition science plus master classes throughout your stay. Owned and operated by Three Time Canadian Trainer of the Year, Cat Smiley, our program provides 1 – 8 week full-time immersion programs in partnership with the Westin Resort and Spa, Whistler. There are 17 weeks available to join us in 2019, from April 21 through September 8, with 6 program start dates.

Since 2001, we’ve helped hundreds of women from all over the world kick start their change towards lighter and healthier.

Note: our fitness team changes each year, due to the transient nature of Whistler’s resort town. Hiring starts in April. We look forward to an amazing 2019 season ahead!

  • Work with all types of learners – whether you pick things up best through visual, verbal or feeling explanations, we speak your language! Empowered learning.
  • Interact successfully with all of our guests. Sometimes you need a trainer, other times a mentor, listener, guidance or friend. You matter here, and we have the resources in place to ensure nobody slips through the cracks.
  • Juggle multiple tasks and meet tight deadlines during your scheduled day, to limit waiting time between workouts and activities. Always with a positive attitude!

Why choose us?

FOR ALL THE REASONS WHY YOU SHOULDN’T GO ON A LUXURY FITNESS RETREAT, WE HOPE TO BE THAT ONE REASON WHY YOU MIGHT SAY YES. Simply put, we are that super active awesome adventure that you perhaps wished you would do, but didn’t think you’d be able to keep up with the group. Or doubted your ability to stick with it.

Our goal at WFV is to make this the last fitness retreat or weight loss program and diet that you’ll ever do in your life. It’s the anti-weight loss program that will put an end to all things weight loss for you.


We don’t just get you in shape, we teach you how to continue and show you how to love it!

How we travel with you

We’ve remained true to our original goal – to provide unparalleled weight loss retreats to women who are just getting started in their fitness journey, in one of the most pristinely beautiful corners of the world.

We’re a company of travelers who are committed to daily workouts, healthy eating and living our best life. We have friends and family who, just like you, find it more challenging to commit to regular workouts. Many of them struggle with eating too much, and some have obesity related diseases.

That’s part of the reason that here at Whistler Fitness Vacations, we’ll welcome you like family. From your first phone call, we’ll show you why so many of our customers refer us to their friends.

Attention to detail

We leave no rock unturned! Although your daily schedule rolls with a ‘no plan plan’, WFV is a ‘well oiled machine’, with mature business operations and logistics. From meticulously calculating zero-waste grocery shop through to planning each trail to ensure you’re back on time, you can count on us for experience, enthusiasm and above all, safety. And of course, we have fun in our jobs, sharing an extraordinary knowledge of Whistler and a passion to share our stories with you.

Intentionally small

We keep our program intentionally small, with no more than 16 guests per week.Cat Smiley leads all body transformations, therefore limits total customer base to 75 people per year.You’ll never feel like you’re one of the crowd, quite the opposite. Our goal at Whistler Fitness Vacations is to make each of our customers feel like they are the most important. Most groups during the day are less than 4 people per fitness guide (we have up to 4 paces each activity). In an extroverted world, we take pride in providing an environment that is also comfortable for introverts.
