Fascinating port cities, an ancient theatre and an impressive safari with off-road vehicles to Mount Etna

Success with ENERGETIX always pays dividends in several ways. Those, for example, who are particularly successful in the training-trip competition are rewarded with exclusive incentive trips!

Sun, sea and sand: qualifiers for the 2nd category of ENERGETIX’s training-trip competition were sent off on a trip to Sicily from 16 to 20 May 2017!

BE A STAR – that was the motto for the just under 40-strong group of international participants that had won the opportunity to experience the varied cultural and natural sights on this popular Mediterranean island. The group – this time composed of independent business partners from Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland and Turkey – was able to enjoy five days together in Mediterranean surroundings!

The participants were based in the Villa Itria Grand Hotel in the port of Catania from where they were able to take off on their pleasure and adventure trips to the eastern part of the island.

UNESCO World Heritage: besides the exploration of the late baroque old town of Catania and a trip to the old town of Syracuse, there was also a tour of the old town of Taormina with its ancient theatre – and its magnificent backdrop and the breathtaking distant view – on the itinerary.

One special highlight was the probably unforgettable safari in off-road vehicles in the area around Mount Etna (3323 metres), the largest and most active volcano in Europe, which was followed by lunch served at a Sicilian vineyard that included such specialities as bruschetta, olives, cheese and, of course, the region’s sun-kissed wines.

The business-partner awards, which are a permanent fixture on every competition trip, were staged at the Farewell Dinner that was held at the Sciarelle country house.

And, besides the various cultural and culinary highlights, the strengthening of team spirit and the exchanging of experiences also naturally played an important role so that the participants returned home highly motivated and ready to get back to business!

Frogs aren’t afraid of the rain. ENERGETIX, Joey Kelly and the half marathon for a good cause

Once again, a dedicated team of ENERGETIX runners took up the challenge of conquering the good 21 kilometres in 2017. And mega-motivator Joey Kelly travelled to Mainz to accompany his charges across the finishing line once again. But ‘high and dry’ wouldn’t be the right thing to say here because it rained on the said Sunday and, although there were a few dry spells, everyone still got wet. The around 70 runners, however, didn’t let that spoil their fun in any way!

More than 5,700 participants completed the half marathon and a good 70 of these were easily identifiable as ENERGETIX runners by their blue-and-red shirts. They had trained hard and had travelled from all over Germany and Austria to join in the fun and battle through kilometre by kilometre for themselves and their team.

And Joey did his utmost to motivate his ENERGETIX team to make sure that literally everyone got home with a medal. And he succeeded. Congratulations! The exhausted and delighted expressions on the faces on the ‘Frog runners’ as they crossed the finishing line speak volumes!

Immediately after the run, the likeable and multi-talented Joey had to head straight for the ZDF TV channel afterwards where host Andrea Kiewel, his brothers and sisters and a delighted audience awaited a performance by the Kelly Family!

The day before, runners had been given the opportunity to discover everything about running at the Marathon Fair in the Rheingoldhalle. Also present: a stand organized by ENERGETIX business partners who presented the new two-tone design of the popular sportEX bracelets in front of the smart new sportEX trade-fair wall.

Great tradition: the ENERGETIX team consisting of independent ENERGETIX business partners, staff and friends of the company took up the sporting challenge to run together for a good cause. Two euros per kilometre were again donated to ENERGETIX’s charity partner in South Africa, the Hugo-Tempelman Foundation.

We would also like to thank the organizing team and the massage team, which was so important to the runners, for their active support and all the fans who cheered the runners on along the route!

We have put together an exclusive compilation of the most moving impressions of the mega event in Mainz for you here.

The stars in Mainz – international STARCLUB meeting ahead of the Gutenberg Marathon

On Friday and Saturday, ENERGETIX’s most successful business partners came together for an intensive two days of training just before the mega sports event on 7 May.

Those who are admitted to the renowned STARCLUB as independent business partners have produced outstanding performances and are recognized accordingly. ENERGETIX sends out invitations to its stars several times a year to receive exclusive first-hand news, to exchange experiences with others and to relax together and enjoy an exclusive entertainment programme as well as to gather strength for the months ahead in atmospheric surroundings.

The Novotel, situated at the heart of the capital city of the Rhineland-Palatinate, constituted the ideal venue for this international event. The warm welcome was followed by ENERGETIX’s management – Roland Förster, Alexander Link and Jessica Schlick – presenting current innovations and plans for the future of the successful network-marketing company. A lively exchange that benefited all sides rounded off the afternoon before the members proceeded to the evening event with the emotional ceremony to recognize new STARCLUB members and the party afterwards at the Kupferberg Terrace event location.

Saturday saw the happy stars take an entertaining and informative tour of Mainz. Besides a trip to the church of St. Stephan with its world-famous Chagall windows, the participants also enjoyed a culinary excursion that focused on the topic of wine and chocolate. A really successful conclusion to an intensive and emotional two days’ meeting of the STARCLUB!

Forty-two highly motivated business partners from Belgium, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland returned home to their teams with fresh information and renewed motivation. We wish everyone great success!

Many cheered on ENERGETIX’s half-marathon runners at the Gutenberg Marathon on Sunday. With success: all members of the team reached the finishing line after a good 21 kilometres. Congratulations!

Here are the photos for you!
