30 Minute Hit

We are a women\’s only kickboxing/boxing circuit in Sapperton, New Westminster. Many of our members are Moms and are able to bring their little ones along with them. Babies can come station to station with their Mom in a bumbo or carseat. Once they are old enough we have a gated kids space that is visable through the whole workout. The circuit is 30 minutes which is just long enough for the kids to stay occupied and let you sweat! Most kids love watching their Mom working so hard. All of our Members and Trainers are welcoming and understanding.

Everyone gets a free trial so you can check it out before you sign up!

Blenz

BLENZ COFFEE opened its first store in February 1992 on the corner of Robson and Bute Street in Vancouver, British Columbia. The first BLENZ store was to be a testing ground to ensure that the concept and systems were strong enough to grow and compete with other international chains. The founders of BLENZ COFFEE are Brian Noble, Sarah Moen and Geoffrey Hair, each bringing their own personal strengths and combined bringing a wealth of business experience to BLENZ COFFEE.

The success of BLENZ COFFEE’S first store and the founders’ commitment to education and standards made franchising a natural choice. Today BLENZ now has 64 stores in British Columbia and also operates internationally in Japan and the Philippines.

i-DIG gardening

i-DIG gardening services, encompass landscape design, rejuvenation, and maintenance. As a child I grew up climbing trees, exploring the forest, and catching tadpoles; activities that fostered my lifelong love for nature. Whether it be clients children or a field trip of kids walking by, I am fortunate to be able to take a moment with the kids to point out that cool ‘X’ that a plant is doing in response to weather patterns, or pulling out my magnifying glass so the kids can see the microscopic bugs on a leaf surface, etc, etc, etc… I truly and humbly believe that love of nature starts when we are young with curious minds.

The Pantry

The New Westminster location was selected as our prototype location with the Surrey-Newton location scheduled to be re-opened in the Fall of 2011 and a new Dawson Creek location opening shortly thereafter. These changes are part of The Pantry’s plans to return to the timeless traditions with a Fresh Approach and a Fresh Appeal. The Pantry’s food has always utilized fresh ingredients and it was time that the locations echoed this sentiment. Plans are developing for additional locations to be revitalized in 2012.

The revitalized locations emphasize comfort, coziness and warmth above all else. Everyone who enters a Pantry location should feel like they’ve just stepped into their own mother’s kitchen where updated decor and pleasant staff help to provide respite from the activities of the day. Central to the Home Fresh decor are warm colors, greenery, a feature wall with a written recipe, new tables and chairs and an updated bar area.
