CHIVA-SOM WELCOMES ULTRA-MARATHON CHAMPION AND GUINNESS WORLD RECORD HOLDER NATALIE DAU FOR AUGUST RESIDENCY



Australian celebrity trainer will be in residence at Chiva-Som Hua Hin from 26-30 August


The world’s most pioneering transformative health and wellness resort for almost three decades, Chiva-Som Hua Hin, Thailand, will welcome acclaimed Australian ultra-marathon champion, celebrity trainer and Guinness World Record holder, Natalie Dau, for a five-day residency from 26 to 30 August 2024. Natalie will be offering running workshops, strength training and more to guests of Chiva-Som, to elevate their performance and help them push through any physical and mental barriers. 

 

Throughout Natalie's summer residency, guests will get the opportunity to train alongside her, benefitting from her extensive knowledge and personal insights into endurance training, mental resilience and overall wellness. A series of complimentary classes for those with a retreat booking at Chiva-Som include:

 

STRENGTH TRAINING FOR WOMEN: 27th AUGUST AT 10:00  

Women have the ability to train just as heavily as men, despite some physiological differences. Guests will learn strength building exercises both for the gym and home that will make them feel more powerful and improve performance.  

 

TRAINING FOR OVER 40s: 28th AUGUST AT 10:00 

The ageing process means a loss of muscle strength and mass. Natalie will perform simple tests on participants to gauge their current strengths and weaknesses, then devise a fitness plan for each to maintain and enhance their abilities over the long term. 

 

RUNNING WORKSHOP: 29th AUGUST AT 7:00 

For beginners and professionals alike, Natalie shares her techniques for warming up, pacing, fuelling and hydration, with a morning group run on the beach tailored for different levels followed by a thorough cooldown to promote recovery. 

 

LESSONS FROM A GUINNESS WORLD RECORD HOLDER: 29th AUGUST AT 15:00 

What does it take to run 1,000 km in 12 days? Natalie shares tales from her latest feat running across Asia, including how she motivated herself, the planning involved and any highs and lows, with takeaway lessons on how to face any challenge in life. 

 

Having just won a new Guinness World Record for running 1,000km in just 12 days, Natalie is a globally recognised figure in the ultra-marathon community, bringing her unparalleled expertise and passion for fitness to Chiva-Som. Known for her remarkable endurance and inspiring journey, Natalie has competed in some of the world’s most gruelling races, earning her a reputation as one of the top ultra-marathon athletes in the world. 



“Natalie Dau’s dedication to fitness and her inspiring achievements in ultra marathons make her the perfect choice for Chiva-Som. We are thrilled to offer our guests the chance to train with such an elite athlete and to learn from her experiences. This retreat embodies Chiva-Som’s commitment to providing holistic wellness experiences that nurture the body, mind, and spirit,” said Chanyapak Suwankantha, Wellness Director of Chiva-Som. 

 

Natalie is also a recently published author of the book “Run Like a Woman,” which looks into the challenges and triumphs of female endurance athletes, offering inspiration and practical advice for women at all levels of fitness. A shared passion for wellness through a uniquely holistic approach, combining physical and mental health for optimum performance, make Chiva-Som and Natalie a perfect partnership.
