Mark has 25 years of experience working in F1, his responsibility being to keep the driver in top shape throughout the year, whilst travelling 240 days. As part of his role, Mark has created cutting edge programs on how to stay fit and healthy whilst travelling, looking at exercise, nutrition, recovery, jetlag management, injury prevention and immune system support. These elite level solutions will be available for hotel guests at select partner hotels.

Comment from Mark: “I’m really excited to bring these elite F1 fitness methods to a wider audience. I have lived and breathed this for the past 25 years so I know how hard it can be to stay fit and healthy on the road, but I also know that it’s possible and it doesn’t have to be complicated. What makes this concept unique is that it’s a joint venture combining my knowledge with that of my partner, Tea Ros, who has over 20 years of experience in the hotel world and understands how to put it all into practise”.

First Partner Hotel in Zermatt

  • Exercise and recovery equipment in all guest rooms

Mark will also be sharing his tips and tools on how F1 drivers stay fit on the road to enable hotel guests to learn healthy habits. The Mark Arnall TRAVEL F1T programs will be available at Hotel Zermama for spring 2022.

Comment from Mark: “Zermatt is a destination that offers an active lifestyle and therefore the main focus is on recovery. Being an avid skier myself, I know how important recovery is to being able to enjoy the holidays to the max, both in terms of helping the ski legs last all week and recovering from the amazing Après-Ski. With in-room recovery programs, foam rollers and massage balls in every room, rehydration / recovery solutions and nutritional support, we have the guests covered. I am excited to partner with the owners, Sandrine and Mario Julen, as they share the vision that health is wealth and are passionate about bringing the best health and fitness solutions to their guests.”

Comment from Sandrine Julen: “We are very excited to work together with Mark Arnall and be the first hotel in the world to feature his fitness concept. We at Hotel Zermama are passionate about the health and wellbeing of our guests and partnering with Mark brings true added value to our guests. Zermatt is a world-class destination with a focus on active lifestyle and we are glad to further add to the profile of the destination and push the bar in terms of new hospitality concepts.”
