Matjaž Petan, Head of fitness centre at Grand Hotel Union

Q: What are your recommendations for wellbeing and keeping in shape while being on a business trip?
Though being on a business trip that does not mean that anyone should eliminate his or her healthy habits and regular exercise. Most likely, there are a number of limitations regarding limited time and nourishment, but a few trivialities can already contribute to a better wellbeing.
I suggest that in the morning before business obligations, or at the afternoon before dinner, one devotes at least one hour for exercise. Visit the hotel gym or go for a run to the park. Keep an eye on the nourishment – take time for breakfast in the hotel and limit the amount of alcohol at a business dinner or lunch. Besides all this, remember to have a sufficient amount of sleep, which will limit the exposure to the stress.

Q: What are the advantages of the indoor fitness centre for guests at Grand Hotel Union?
Indoor fitness centre in the Grand Hotel Union is brand new, designed for people who want to exercise in a little different way. We have enough of monotonous training equipment, runners and wheels. In our fitness, we use the body as a tool – we made functional fitness. You can visit it on your own, participate in a group training (maximum five participants) or choose individual workouts.
The fitness centre is clean, airy, bright and surrounded by a pleasant atmosphere.

Q: Why would a business guest attend your fitness centre while staying at the hotel only for two days? What are the advantages?
In our fitness, a team of qualified coaches awaits for you, who will fully optimise your time spent at the gym. This means that you do not waste any time thinking about proper warming up or maybe adjusting workout because of your prior injury. We are there for our guests. Thus, you will gain some knowledge, which could be useful when exercising at home.

Q: What is your formula for healthy living in these stressful times?
Healthy life requires adequate nutrition, sufficient amount of sleep, exercise and relaxation. It is important to keep these key factors in balance and not neglect any of them.
Due to the pace of life, dedicate some time for mental training also. Exercise regularly, perform the exercises correctly and find recreation in which you will enjoy and have fun.

Q: What makes you smile?
I am pleased when I feel the positive atmosphere in a group; let it be an exercising group or a group of my colleagues. I get working vigour by seeing satisfied customers – enthusiastic, positively surprised about their achievements and more confident.
