Most clients have specific goals for their important event. Vision Personal Training included. A planned weekend retreat for their clients and trainers had particular requirements. They were looking for:
- A calming and picturesque atmosphere
- A venue that could be customised to suit their needs
- A flexible venue schedule that would work with their needs
- An approach to food that provided healthy options
Studio owner Alex Anasson chose CountryPlace in the Dandenong Ranges to fulfil these needs. CountryPlace had focussed on putting together the package that really suited her specific requirements and expectations.
Special touches like the Smoothie Station where guests could curate their own protein smoothie proved to be a big hit. Fresh flowers from the gardens also added a nice touch. Conversion of a conference room for indoor circuit training in response to poor weather was much appreciated.
Working with the venue to deliver on client (and guest) requirements.
In pre-conference consultation with the venue’s chefs, a customised menu was created that not only provided wholesome food, but delicious food.
A highlight of the weekend was the Sunday morning workshop with the head chef to inspire guests to be more creative when planning low-carb, high protein meals. The hero dish was the cured salmon, infused with beetroot, gin and horseradish.
A big thanks.
Alex’s event was voted a winner by trainers and their clients. Alex said “CountryPlace helped me to create the perfect 3 day retreat. Thanks to all of the staff. We will see you again.”
