BMC Switzerland  history – The long way to the top

BMC Switzerland was founded in Grenchen (Switzerland) 1994. In the beginning, the company put a strong emphasis on distributing mountain bikes only. BMC Switzerland was established as a well-known brand in Switzerland during the following decade. But their strategy of focusing on the mountain bike segment proved less and less successful in the late 1990s – as this time span marked the beginning of the commercially profitable road bike era. New markets emerged in which BMC Switzerland had no real share.

Things started to change for the better when Swiss entrepreneur Andy Rihs took over in 2000.

¡Feliz cumpleaños! – Happy Birthday! – Alles Gute zum Geburtstag!

banner10ANIVERSARIO_2015

Hoy lunes 30 de noviembre cumplimos años. Una década de ilusión, cambios, deporte, servicio y todo lo que rodea un resort turístico con un hotel, un aparthotel y 24 villas, piscina olímpica, pabellón cubierto y más instalaciones que puedes ver aquí.

Hace 10 años decidimos diferenciamos de otros resorts de Fuerteventura apostando por un segmento que en el 2005 no estaba en auge. En 10 años hemos evolucionado con nuevas instalaciones, hemos acertado apostando por deportes como el triatlón, la carrera de montaña y también hemos cometido errores, que intentamos subsanar con voluntad y la mejor de nuestras sonrisas. Tenemos un alto índice de clientes que repiten, el apoyo de las instituciones de la isla, una plantilla profesional que da lo mejor de si día tras día y mucha ilusión en seguir ofreciendo a nuestros clientes las mejores vacaciones activas de su vida. Esperamos verte pronto en Playitas Resort y a todos los que componen la familia de Playitas… ¡Feliz Cumpleaños! 🙂

*****

Today, November 30 we are celebrating our tenth birthday. A decade full of hope, changes, sport and service combined in one resort consisting of a Hotel, Aparthotel, 24 Villas, an Olympic Pool as well as a sports hall. Click here for further information about these and other facilities.

10 years ago we decided to differentiate ourselves from the other resorts of Fuerteventura and set on a segment largely unknown in 2005.

 Within 10 years our resort strongly evolved with its new facilities. We celebrated great success with sports such as triathlon and trailrun – but also we made mistakes we made up for with strong willpower and a smile.

We hold a high number of repeated customers, receive support from the island´s institutions and have a professional and highly-motivated team, giving its best each day in pursuing the target to offer our clients the best active holidays of their lives.

 We hope to welcome you and everybody forming the Playitas-Family soon at Playitas Resort…Happy Birthday! 🙂

 *****

Heute, den 30. November, feiern wir unseren zehnten Geburstag. Ein Jahrzehnt der Hoffnung, Veränderungen, Sport und Service vereint in einem Ferienort bestehend aus dem Hotel, Aparthotel, 24 Villen, einem Olympischen Pool sowie einer Sporthalle. Informationen zu diesen und den weiteren Einrichtungen finden Sie hier.

 Vor 10 Jahren haben wir uns dazu entschlossen, uns von den anderen Resorts auf Fuerteventura zu differenzieren und auf eine Spezialisierung zu setzen, welche im Jahre 2005 weitestgehend unbekannt war.

 Innerhalb von 10 Jahren hat sich unser Resort mit neuen Einrichtungen stark entwickelt – wir hatten grossen Erfolg mit Sportarten wie Triathlon und Trailrun- aber wir haben auch Fehler gemacht, welche wir vor Allem mit eisernem Willen und einem Lächeln wieder gut gemacht haben.

Wir haben eine hohe Anzahl an Stammkunden, die Unterstützung der Institutionen der Insel, ein professionelles Team, welches Tag für Tag sein bestes gibt und mit grosser Motivation weiterhin das Ziel verfolgt, unseren Kunden den besten aktiven Urlaub ihres Lebens zu bereiten.

 Wir hoffen dich und all diejenigen, die die Playitas-Familie bilden, bald im Playitas Resort begrüssen zu dürfen…Alles Gute zum Geburtstag! 🙂

Fighting for Linda and Edith. HELP US!

DSC_0091

Our dear friends and famous triathletes Edith Niederfriniger and Linda Scattolin were involved in an accident with a bus in South Africa. It has not yet been firmly established but it is suspected that brake problems caused a bus carrying local rugby team to lose control and force the two athletes into the path of a truck. Medivac by helicopter took them to two different hospitals. The crash cost three lives and thirty people suffering injuries. Initially there was little news coming from the hospitals other than that both Italians were lucky and that their conditions were thankfully not life-threatening. Read more?

Due to some problems with their insurance that is not covering all the amount is why we all joined together in doing our bit in this cause. A special raffle is organized by Playitas Resort and it will take place next Saturday, March14 (20.30 h) at Sports Bar and the prize will be a week stay at Playitas valid for 2 people on half-board basis.

Also,  t-shirts will be on sale and a money box for collecting any help.

The price of the tickets and t-shirts will be 10 € each one and the money obtained will be donated to a bank account opened for this purpose.

If you are interested in helping Linda and Edith, you may buy the tickets at Playitas Groups and Events office – nearby Playitas Hotel reception –

THANK YOU very much for your help!

Finding the way

1When it comes to gearing up for workout, perseverance is the key to success.

* How important is the regular physical activity for good health?

* Looking for some effective ways to transform your body?

Regular physical activity is important to maintain a healthy weight or even if you are trying to lose weight fast. If you are looking for transforming your body, we introduce you some exercises that will help you to reach your goal in no time. Of course, you can practice all of them at Playitas Resort. Don’t hesitate and ask to our fitness instructors how to do exercises properly. Please, do it!

Push-ups can be done anywhere and is an exercise that people avoid, but it can do wonders for your body as well as lunges. Lunges give you such amazing results because use your body weight to strengthen your legs, arms and stomach. That’s the reason they are extremely effective.

The squat is a full-body exercise that works many muscles. Doing squats regularly you will ‘incinerate’ a lot of calories to transform your body.

Good news for all who love swimming. It’s a workout that will bring you astonishing results. We have an Olympic Pool at Playitas that you can enjoy the whole year with a water temperature between 25 and 26 degrees. If you love ‘open water’ swimming, the beach nearby Playitas provides you the best experience in the Atlantic Sea.

There are many benefits of running because transforms your body like nothing else. Running is one of the top activities for burning fat. At Playitas, we see people running especially early in the morning, and think it’s one of the best exercises to do every day.C2C promo C7 logo blanco

Start riding the ‘red line’ for almost 4 k and discover how beautiful the island of Fuerteventura is.  Cycling is associated with improved cardiovascular fitness. Riding a bike is great for toning and building your muscles. Just make sure you do them on a regular basis to see the best results as we wrote on the top – perseverance-.

One more thing, quite simple… Free your mind! 😉

 

Cycling, a means of networking?

Red line

Lets face it, most of us do not cycle to make a living. Having said that, there are a lot of us out there that have never written a bicycle at all. Let us tell you this, it is a very green method of displacing yourself from point A to point B and is proven to be one of the most forgiving sports there are. You can pace yourself, you can outperform yourself, you can do it on your own, you can do it as a group, you can do it with total strangers, you can do it with friends, you can do it with colleagues, you can do it with like minded people or you can teach it to the younger generation (highly recommended). The fact is, it is a sport that, when practiced with moderation (too much of anything is not good to begin with anyways), does not invade on ligaments or any other extremely focused anatomy of the body (saddle sore not taken into account). It is a great way of spending time with the family going for a stroll.

But did you know it is also becoming increasingly popular as a means of networking? Well, according to an article in the economist, it does…

Our point of view, when you come to Playitas Resort, don ́t bring any business with you. Getting to know new people is allowed but in a  ́free your mind ́kind of environment.

Enjoy! 😉
