Sun, Beach, Sea, Fun and of course lots of sports were part of the Aerobic and Fitness Week by Fitness First – which happened from the 12th until the 19th of May at Ali Bey Manavgat.
For the participants it was the first highlight of their sport year 2013. The event week reached new standards – there were 164 participants in total who took part in one of the numerous classes.
The weather tried to mess with our plans at the beginning of the week. However, Jutta and her team were prepared for every scenario to keep the event going as planned. Fitz found the right words to describe the situation “The weather does not make the event, WE make the event”. – and that is exactly how we did it. People did not let the sometimes cold and rainy weather get to them and even helped the team to cover up the big area to protect it from rain.
The 13 top instructors from countries such as from France, Brasil, Germany and the UK presented a great and varied program with 100 classes and seminars. The special part about this event is that there is something for everybody – from the step fan to the athletic sports fans and even cyclers.
There were numerous „traditional“ classes for every skill level such as Basic Step up to the high energy Step-A-Jam.
All of the dance freaks had plenty of dance classes to take, for example Latin House, G-Dance, Zumba, Shall We Dance and El Reggaeton and much more. “Flashdance”, which was presented by Jutta and Pierre, was part of the Gala Night. Futhermore Pierre also did his “Bee Gee Beeatz” and “Thriller” class.
Of course there were also H.I.T. (High Intensity Training) and H.I.C. (High Intensity Cycling) classes for people who like to reach their personal limits.
The morning classes at the beach restaurant with sea view were also really nice - a perfect start to the day and a great preparation for the classes to come.
Meeting point before, during and after the classes was the professional gym by Fitness First Club Ali Bey that was available to all of the participants and Fitness First members at no charge.
There were a couple of little changes to the Miles Contest this year. Not the one participant who took the most classes wins, but participants had to gather at least 2000 Fitness Miles to be able to win prices. At the Team Teach on Friday afternoon 3 winners were chosen from all the Miles Contest sheets that were handed in. First place went to Gisela Hintzen, who won the event fee for one of the upcoming events. Second place went to Petra Böhle and 3rd place went to Philip Hanselmann, who won giveaways. The winners even had to demonstrate their favorite exercises from the week.
Regina Halmich came to teach her popular „Boxcamp“ on Thursday and Friday. In total of 3 classes, participants were able to learn useful tips and tricks all around boxing. Everybody was excited for the special guest to arrive and after the classes lots of pictures with the multiple world champion were made.
The Aerobic and Fitness weeks at Ali Bey Manavgat are always something special. Fitness freaks from all around the world gather with one goal – to have as much fun as possible combined with sports and their favorite presenters.
Next to the outstanding fitness program, the evening activities were also a hightlight. The Welcome Party on Monday night was moved to the indoor disco due to the rain and cold temperatures. Everybody celebrated Jutta’s birthday and the beginning oft the week until the early hours. Carlos from Zumba arrived on Wednesday night to celebrate a “Zumba Party” with all of the participants.
On Friday night everybody got to celebrate at the romantically decorated beach restaurant. With candle light, an exclusive atmosphere, including the sound of crashing waves, and music from a live DJ, the participants were able to enjoy a fabulous meal with a party afterwards to end another wonderful event week at Ali Bey
The next Aerobic and Fitness Week is from the 15th until the 22nd of September at Club Ali Bey. You should not miss out – it does not matter if you are a fitness freak or an amateur.
