WHICH TOPICS DOES SCANDITERRANEO ACADEMY COVER?
 
WHAT IS A LEARNING EXPERIENCE?

A Learning experience is an activity or exercise designed to help you learn or develop a specific competence. It could for example be things like catching a bus somewhere while working on a task on the bus, walking in a specific part of the city and doing some task related to the environment, shopping at a department store and integrating particular exercises, discussing a specifc topic over a coffee at a nice café, etc.

The point is that you are actively doing something that evokes feelings, emotions, and involves all your senses, you are not just passively receiving information that you are supposed to learn.

There are two main reasons why we have included exercise in the program of all the days

 

  • Physical activity enhances your learning capability. Starting every day with a workout session helps you stay both alert and relaxed during the day, and it also helps to keep your brain fresh during all the days so that you can absorb and process the learning experiences.

  • When you are fit, you perform better and you are happier in both your personal and professional life. You are healthier and you reduce the risk of injuries since you have strength and endurance to spare for all activities in your everyday life. Being in good physical shape is also a fundamental requirement to have the energy to apply the principles, methods, and tools that you have to handle the stress and demands of your everyday life. Being fit gives you the freedom to do what you want, to never have to say no to things because your body isn't up for it. In short, being fit makes you feel good, and this reflects positively on your whole life.

WHY HAVE EXERCISE ON THE PROGRAM?

The focus of the exercise sessions is on full body functional fitness to make you fit, strong, and agile. The idea is to try various effective exercise approaches and to get lots of new knowledge and inspiration to develop your training and physical well-being.

The types of exercise depend on the location and the group, but expect for example elements from crossfit, track and field, yoga, trail running, beach/water fitness, swimming, boxing and martial arts. Effective exercise should be fun and diverse, that is what you'll experience here!

WHAT TYPE OF EXERCISE ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?

You do not have to be super fit to participate, but you should be used to some exercise to take full advantage of the different types of workouts that you will try during the days.

In any case, the experienced personal trainer leading the workout sessions adapt the intensity according to the fitness level of the people in the group. This means that each person will get the right intensity level regardless of their fitness level.

HOW FIT DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO PARTICIPATE?
 

People often ask us if this is primarily personal or professional development...

 

Our answer is that this is both personal and professional. At Scanditerraneo Academy we believe that everything increasingly is. It is widely recognised today that the personal and the professional is intertwined, especially for people with jobs that involve interaction, thinking, creativity, innovation, problem solving, analysis, and other intellectual efforts.

 

Your personal life influences your professional life and your professional life influences your personal life. That is exactly why we focus on making you Fit for Business and Fit for Life.

 

Participating in a Scanditerraneo Academy Training Program is very valuable for you as an individual and it's very valuable for the organisation you work in, so regardless if the initiative to sign up is yours or your organisation's, you can rest assured that it is worth the investment.

IS THIS PERSONAL OR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT?​

The goal for Scanditerraneo Academy is to make, and keep, you Fit for Business, Fit for Life and that encompasses a wide variety of topics and formats.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAILOR THIS PROGRAM FOR ME/OUR COMPANY?
COULD WE DO A PROGRAM AS A COMPANY "EVENT"?

Of course it is possible to do a Fit for Business, Fit for Life Program as a company event, e.g. kick-off, team building, etc.​ It's a really cool group experience and all organisations and teams need individuals who are Fit for Business, Fit for Life. An added benefit is that you can help each other to reinforce the competences once you are back in your workplace. As mentioned above we can always customise the concept for your needs.
