Sport and Fitness Training at Pattana Sports Resort in Chonburi, Thailand – Interview with Craig Wood – Travel News Asia
(08 June 2022, 17:55 +07) With more and more people trying to lead healthier, more active lifestyles, the concept of a sports resort where you can stay and not only enjoy the fresh air and scenery, but also improve your favourite activity’s techniques is certainly one that is 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 Training and was last year promoted to Director of Sports as the property starts to better focus the services it provides to individuals, as well as professional sporting teams.
In this, the first in-person video interview TravelNewsAsia.com has done since February 2020, Steven Howard asks Craig to tell us what his job involves and how Pattana embraces technology to enhance the training facilities available.
We discuss what sports Pattana handles, which sports the property plans to expand into, and how it is working with the local community to improve water safety skills among young Thais.
We also talk about the importance of sleep and how Pattana covers that as part of the training it provides, as well as how the company uses the large amount of land it owns to grow its own food and support local farmers by buying locally grown produce.
As hotels of all star levels and sizes implement more and more wellness and wellbeing services, Craig tells us what ‘Train the Trainer’ services Pattana provides, and how it is using technology to offer training services to people who do not even visit the resort. All that and much, much more in the video and podcast below.
