CHALLENGEFAMILY has partnered with the innovative Pletzer Resorts in the European Alps, to provide CHALLENGEFAMILY athletes with quality training opportunities at five sports-orientated hotels which combine the three pillars of movement, regeneration and nutrition for a sustainable, active and healthy lifestyle.

“When engaging with partners, we always look for those with whom we share the same core values and who we can work together with to provide tangible benefits for our athletes,” said Jort Vlam, CHALLENGEFAMILY CEO.

“Pletzer Resorts with their Move & Relax concept and state-of-the-art infrastructure sit well alongside our own commitment to a healthy and active lifestyle for the whole family. We have already worked for many years with Das Walchsee Sportsresort alongside CHALLENGEKAISERWINKL-WALCHSEE and we’re delighted to extend our partnership to Pletzer Resorts’ other hotels throughout the Austrian and Bavarian Alps. The region is such a spectacular training destination, whatever the time of year with x-country and alpine skiing in the winter and the endless scenic roads and running trails in the summer.

“At the Pletzer Resorts, the topic of Move & Relax plays a very important role and is lived out here every day,” said Egon Kahr, managing director of Pletzer Resorts. “Based on the three pillars of movement, regeneration and nutrition, we offer perfect conditions for triathletes and endurance athletes. In the Challenge Family we see exactly our target group in professional and mass sports, which we can address and best support with our coordinated sports offer, the 25m sports pools, the extensive cycling/running routes in and around the regions of the resorts as well as the professional care by our sports scientists. In Walchsee we are currently building our new resort Das Lakeside directly on the lake with 20 exclusive suites, high-quality gastronomy and a modern training area with spiro-ergometry, bioelectrical impedance analysis, personal training and much more – another perfect training location for all sports enthusiasts.”

With five Pletzer Resorts wellness hotels to choose from, CHALLENGEFAMILY athletes can take advantage of the sports science-based programmes while holidaying with family in spectacular alpine locations of Hopfgarten, Walchsee, Wörthersee and Oberbayern, finding the right balance between exercise and relaxation.
