Put your Sport Gear ON & Boost your Health - the Olympic way!

General description

Imagine waking up one morning, with a dazed face and aching ankles from yesterday's party.

Still sedated from abuse of psychoactive substances you look around the room, and you can see empty beer cans, the reason why your liver won't speak with you and remains of hamburgers, the cornerstone of every healthy, nutritious breakfast.

When you turn on the TV, you are suddenly hit: "Dear Lord, it's the Olympic year!

And I can't even climb up a ladder without loosing my breath..."

It's the turning point from where you decide to demonstrate your utter contempt for the unhealthy-like lifestyle.

First you'll fill the garbage can with alcohol, second put vegetables in every meal, third go to the local gym and fourth go to summer course, where the topics, from healthy lifestyle and its impact on every individual and society, to modern invention and engineering in medicine will be discussed.

And where is that? Oh, Ljubljana, the heart of Europe, small but cosy city between beautiful scenery with peaceful daylife and wild nightlife. A place you'll remember till the end of your life and even further.
