How strength training helps prevent injury, heal faster and enjoy sports uncompromisingly at all ages

Prehabilitation is an upcoming field in interdisciplinary medicine.

Investment banker by day, athlete by night: How Raymund Bareuther combines job and rowing on a national level

Raymund advises company owners and investors on the acquisition, merger or and sale of companies. A job that requires precision and professionalism. Mental strength is therefore one prerequisite for long-term success. Despite or perhaps because of his little free time, Raymund has managed to be the number one rower in different categories time and time again. How does he do that? The current Swiss champion (age group Masters A) in the single and double scull shares in an interview his training routine, his new passion which came out of the corona crisis and his dietary choices. The AURUM High Intensity Training also has a weekly 20 minute slot in his busy agenda.

Heart rate variability (HRV): the strongest indicator of performance recovery

Imagine the match of your life. Tennis match. You hold a racket in your hand and take a few deep and slow breaths to concentrate before you hit the ball. Or think of Shavasana, the state of deep relaxation at the end of each yoga class. In both situations we use the breath to calm the mind. This can also be measured in our body using heart rate variability (HRV). A higher HRV goes hand in hand with mindfulness, relaxation and mental presence. Learn to use HRV to achieve your desired fitness and health state.
