With more and more people trying to lead healthier and more active lives, the concept of a sports resort where you can stay and not only enjoy the fresh air and scenery, but also improve your activity techniques favorite is certainly likely to grow in popularity.
Craig Wood joined Pattana Sports Resort in Chonburi, just 90 minutes from Bangkok, in 2018 as Director of Fitness and Performance and was promoted to Sports Director last year as the property begins to better focus the services it provides to individuals, as well as professional sports teams.
In this first in-person video interview by TravelNewsAsia.com since February 2020, Steven Howard asks Craig to tell us what his job is and how Pattana is embracing technology to improve the training facilities available.
We discuss which sports Pattana plays, which sports the property plans to expand into, and how it works with the local community to improve water safety skills among young Thais.
We also talk about the importance of sleep and how Pattana covers this in the training they offer, as well as how the company uses the large amount of land they own to cultivate their own food and support local farmers by purchasing locally grown produce.
As hotels of all levels and sizes implement more wellness and wellness services, Craig tells us what “Train the Trainer” services Pattana offers and how he uses the technology to provide training services to people who don’t even visit the station.
