Are you familiar with the yo-yo effect? If you are overweight, you probably know about the yo-yo effect. It is not easy to reduce excess weight. And yet it is much harder to maintain the achieved lower weight and after a while not to weight even more than before. The yo-yo effect just follows the laws of nature; there is nothing mysterious in how it works. Of course you can lose weight with this or that method. But unfortunately the body is not „fooled“ for long by such methods. If one returns to their normal food intake after being on a diet, the weight will soon be regained, and more often than not, even more than before. To be overweight is a symptom of bad health, an expression of the imbalance in metabolism and of an interference in the processing of fat, protein and carbohydrates. That is why, on the long run, it is futile to want to reduce overweight by force. The simple truth is this: on the long run, overweight can just be reduced by permanently and consistently improving your health.
Most of the energy in the body is consumed by the muscles through their constant movement. Muscles are like small ovens where fat is burned. They can turn fat into energy incredibly fast – as fast as eighteen times as, for example, fat cells. This is why it is so important to develop your muscles through sport.
This is also why one should always remember that fat reduction is not the same as weight reduction! Most people want to lose weight. But the scales do not measure how much fat is really being burned. They may even register no change in weight, when in reality one has lost fat while developing muscle at the same time. Because muscles weight 22% more than fat, it could be that all the „bacon“ has already began to disappear anyway. All the while your silhouette improves and you look much better – without having reduced a single gram on the scales.
Here the most important points one has to consider to have good health:
In order to keep your health in balance and therefore also your ideal weight, I perform a detailed medical history and take into account all the important aspects of your personal metabolism, such as combustion type, acid-base balance, constitutional type, blood type, autonomous and endocrine type, so as to bring the metabolism into its balance.
In this one-hour session you will discover how posture, muscle imbalance and joint restriction can limit your daily functioning or efficiency in your favorite sport. Learn how proper body mechanics affect the overall movement performance. Identify the missing link and become the best person you can be!
This evaluation is a prerequisite for each personal training program. Before we start training is carried out a thorough medical history (blood pressure measurement , health issues , questions on the well-being) , although of course the individual goals are discussed.
Bodyshape / Bodybuilding
Everybody would like to have a perfect body. How do you get... or better, how can you best train to obtain your perfect body?
Muscle building can be very useful to obtain your ideal body; it also contributes a lot to good health, well-being, and body fat reduction.
Body shape or bodybuilding is a great hobby, and it also is a lot of fun. It does not have to be extreme and one does not need any doping: bodybuilding can be a quite natural and healthy exercise that allows you to shape the body you may have dreamed about for a long time.
You can begin already at 15 or as late as at 80, the most important thing is that the training is conducted under professional guidance. Also very important is the training frequency, the regularity, to always observe the rest periods, and with a customized diet success will soon be achieved.
Regular training is one of the prerequisites to build muscle. In order to grow muscle, stress has to be exercised upon them on a regular basis; also, the load of the stress (training weights) has to increase with time, so that the muscle has a reason to get stronger and bigger. The load is performed by using free weights (dumbbells / Meta-ball) or machines (cable machine).
Personalized nutritional advice
A healthy body means that the cells, glands, organs, and tissues are free from waste and, at the same time, that the mineral deposits of the body are full. Stuffed mineral deposits represent beauty and health for the soul.
In western culture, health is no longer understood as the presence of positive criteria and qualities, but as the lack of negative symptoms, pathological criteria and findings.
We eat and drink to sustain our physical body, which ultimately consists of billions of cells. Every single one of these cells undergoes a process of growth, conservation, and death. To preserve our cells young and healthy as long as possible, they must be nourished optimally. If we eat too much, too fast, or too unbalanced, we strain and disrupt this processes.
Our body knows what it needs and what it doesn't. What it needs is distributed through our blood circulatory system. What it does not need is disposed of via the lymphatic system and our excretory organs. Our body can only be healthy in compliance with and maintaining constant conditions.
In order to keep your health in balance I perform a detailed medical history and take into account all the important aspects of your personal metabolism, such as combustion type, acid-base balance, constitutional type, blood type, autonomous and endocrine type, so as to bring the metabolism into its balance. One ought to write a diet protocol at home for two weeks beforehand, which also strengthens the nutritional awareness.

SLINGS - MYOFASCIAL TRAINING
Anatomy Trains Myofascial Meridians a Revolution in Soft-Tissue Patterning
Introduction History Who’s Who Resources
Anatomy Trains is a unique map of the ‘anatomy of connection’ – whole-body fascial and myofascial linkages. The Anatomy Trains concept joins individual muscles into functional complexes within fascial planes – each with a defined anatomy and ‘meaning’ in human movement.
Anatomy Trains leads to practical new holistic strategies to improve stability, coordination, and resolve long-standing compensations in postural and movement patterns.
What are myofasciae?
Myo "refers to muscle, " fascia " is the name given to all surrounding reticular tissue that forms your body and body systems together.
Developed by author and bodyworker Thomas Myers in the 1990’s, Anatomy Trains has been welcomed and put to use by diverse health professionals – physical therapists, personal trainers, massage therapists, athletes and coaches, Pilates and yoga teachers, chiropractors and osteopaths – anyone interested in effecting lasting changes in body structure and movement through updating their idea of how the body regulates its biomechanics.
Anatomy Trains Myofascial Meridians gives you a new understanding of whole-body patterning in posture and function – the interplay of movement and stability. Understanding the ‘Superficial Back Line’ as a whole gives insights into hamstring problems that you cannot get from considering the hamstrings alone. The ‘Spiral Line’ shows how to resolve rotational compensations in a way that no analysis of any single muscle can give.
From the individual cell to the social and cultural context, we are investigating morphogenesis, as well as morphostasis and morphokinesis – how we take form, how we get stuck, and how we mature and grow out of such restrictions. We call this ‘Spatial Medicine’ – how do we optimize the mechanical relationships in the body – either to repair injury or improve performance? The overall context is to improve our ‘KQ’ – our Kinesthetic Quotient, or body intelligence.
Prenatal training is important, so that you can stay fit during pregnancy and your body is prepared for the birth. Prenatal training consists of a combination of gymnastics, yoga, breathing exercises, and relaxation. All movements are tailored to your needs as an expectant mother and help to carry the increasing weight with a good posture and to relieve the back, legs and the pelvic floor. Breathing exercises allow you to better cope with the shortness of breath during the last months of the pregnancy, and with the pain during labor.
After birth, it takes some time for the abdominal wall, the uterus, the pelvic floor muscles, the vaginal conduct, and the hormonal balance to get back to normal. The recovery varies from woman to woman, but it usually lasts as long as the pregnancy. In addition to active breastfeeding, special postnatal exercises and sport support this process.
I myself am a passionate athlete and have been working for 15 years as a personal trainer; since I myself became a mum, I have also specialized in "sport during and after the pregnancy". I can tell from personal experience that with targeted exercises your old body shape can be regained.
We hate to say it, but for you to surf to your full capabilities, you'll have to put in a little work before you hit the surf. Of course, we're talking about exercise! Surfing is meant to be fun and it is, but if you want to maximise your enjoyment and increase the speed that you improve—and escalate the time that you can spend in the water—then you are going to need to do a little work.
It's a good idea to assess your surfing fitness before you start, and keep track of your progress as you work out regularly.
A good level of overall fitness is desirable for a healthy lifestyle anyway, so use surfing as an excuse to start getting into shape and living more healthily. You will feel and look better for it, you'll sleep more soundly, and you'll look a much better in your boardies or bikini.
Let get start now with a specified surffitness workout. I will show you a range of exercises that target specific areas of your surfing.
