How can physical and mental wellbeing be achieved simultaneously?

In a classic work environment, there is often only one choice in terms of physical activity, and that is a gym.
Grégory offers a different approach, one which is global yet personalized and perfectly suited to the context of Hekla.
Using tried and tested methods which have proved their worth on top athletes, sporting activity adapts to everybody, any time, in countless spaces inside the building and outdoors, leading to improved physical wellbeing, which in turn promotes better overall performance by each worker. His role involves considerable interaction with the other members of the Creatives team.
