15 international presenters made sure that participants had an unforgettable vacation with over 100 classes at the Turkish Riviera.
Those who thought that the Fitness First Aerobic & Fitness weeks from last year could not be topped were mistaken. Ali Bey Club Manavgat once again proved that it was the perfect place to host this extraordinary event. The corporation between Patricio Travel, Fitness First and Reebok presented a perfect combination of sports, sun and vacation to the 260 fitness enthusiasts.
An international experienced presenter team from 8 different countries offered a wide range of athletic-, endurance-, dance-, aerobic-, step-, and relaxation classes.
It didn’t matter if the participants were there for the first time or were one of the “regulars” – it was an all-around perfect week for everyone.
The event has a very familiar flair, since the majority of the group has been knowing each other for a number of years. The anticipation was definitely to be felt on arrival day – it was time to see everybody again after a long time. The ones who were there for the first time were also welcomed into the “fitness family” rather quickly.
Every event participant received all the important event information, class schedule, Patricio Travel wristband and a Reebok match bag at the event check-in.
On Monday morning everybody was invited to meet on the big area for the “Get Together” where every presenter was introduced to the group of participants. After a few sincere words from Jutta Schuhn, it was time to go and get one of the event shirts.
Whoever did not meet enough people at the “Get Together” got another chance to meet new people at the “Welcome Party” on Monday night. The small area was transformed into a dance floor with a special flair. DJ Andy Heick made sure that the right music was played to get the people dancing. The definite highlight of the night was the “Michael Jackson” dance performance by the Ali Bey dance team. The team of the Ali Bey Club made sure that guests had a great time at the party – with cocktails, fireworks and music.
The ones, who partied late into the night, got a chance to recharge their batteries with a beach workout of Dynamic Pilates. The numerous yoga-, pilates-, and stretching classes were a perfect opportunity to regain some energy and strength after strenuous days full of high intensity classes.
A special highlight was scheduled for Wednesday night. Robert Steinbacher, Janni Giannikakis, Ralf Kunzler and Luciano Motolla invited every participant to a special bodyART class. It was a special event with torches, candle light and relaxing music, for everybody who was able to get back into their workout clothes after dinner. A class consisting of the perfect mix of dynamic moves and stretching ended another exciting day at Ali Bey.
Friday offered 2 highlights. All the event participants and presenter met on the big area at 5pm for a group picture and concluded the hour with a special “Team Teach”, where all the presenters got on stage once again. Also the winners of the Miles Contest where announced. Third place went to Antje Krüger. She won a Fitness First backpack and a shirt. Second place went to Erik Jäger. He won a ticket to the “Vibrations” convention in Hamburg. First place went to Petra Dombrowski. She won the entry fee for one of the two Aerobic & Fitness weeks in 2014.
After the “Team Teach” it was time to get out of the workout clothes and dress up for the gala night dinner at the beach restaurant. The beach restaurant was perfectly decorated by the Ali Bey team and proved to be the right place for that special night. Fitness First general manager Stefan Tilk opened up the night with a short speech.
After dinner, Jutta Schuhn took over the microphone to thank everybody who was involved in making the Fitness & Aerobic week in September another overwhelming success. Laurent and his “Shall We Dance” class opened up the dance floor with the newly learned Salsa routine. Shortly after Jutta and Pierre presented their “Flashdance” which got the crowd to cheer and dance. People danced the night away to the music of Move Ya – DJ Andy Heick.
On Saturday it was time for some of the people to say goodbye again, some took some time to extend their vacation and stay a couple of days longer. Looking back, they all came to the conclusion that they were a part of a perfect event and they would like to be a part of it again next year – because THIS IS HOW WE DO IT.
