May 1st (holiday outing)
Half-island Reichenau-Unesco site is located only a couple kilometers from the border town Konstanz where we often shop: We are called “Einkaufstouristen” as we reclaim the VAT (sales tax) from our purchases brought back over the border into Switzerland.
Glucker Kolleg PT Kongress Kornwestheim
The leader in EMS and Personal Training in Germany, who have expanded to 25 countries and whose courses have been certified in a number of countries, is led by Stephan Müller. I gave two presentations at the Glucker Kolleg PT Kongress, and assisted the PT Association in international affairs. The PT Kongress attracts over 350 participants, and offers more than 50 sessions, an exhibition, and a friendly atmosphere.
On 18.05. I will again attend the Swiss Association SFCV Kongress in Bern. This time, I am travelling with Udo Munster, CEO of Milon, who supply innovative training systems and solutions based out of my previous hometown Munich.
19.-21.05. I am looking forward to a trip to Scandinavia. My 3 day trip will cover four meetings, and I am excited to stay in the ubiquitous Hotel Tylosand, owned by the guitarist of the Roxette Group:
Halmstad, Sweden: I will hold a presentation at the Eleiko headquarters for Friskis & Svettis
Helsingborg, Sweden: I’m looking forward to the birthday celebration for Bjoern Johansson
Lund, Sweden: Here, I will attend an investor meeting
Copenhagen, DK: Before flying out, I will attend a meeting with my client Motosumo (before flying out)
Berlin 23-24.05. Meetings with my client Urban Sports Club, dinner with Master PT Eileen Gallasch, Silka (met in Sri Lanka), Hubert Horn of Body Media / Meet the Top, and Aspria.
I will also have a call with Jim McPartland from the California Mentoring program. I have known Jim since we worked together at Life Fitness back in 1988.
On a more personal note, I am continuing my Physiotherapy sessions to maintain my back health following my back surgery last year.
This month I wrote three articles written for trade publications F&G (Golden Age of Fitness) and Fitness Management (EHFF Conference) and Fitness Tribune (topic: Fitness First rebranding and acquisition of Barry Boot Camp rights)
