Health and performance at F1 level: That’s what you need to know to increase your strength and well-being in everyday life

As a visitor or patient at the Hirslanden Clinic, you have more in common with a Formula 1 driver than you think. An F1 driver who spends 7 hours in the car (and another 7 hours in meetings) needs maximum endurance, strength and the best reaction time to repeatedly cross the finish line safely and quickly. Executives with 90 Key Performance Indicators or seniors at the age of 75 want to improve or maintain their performance in a different context, whether it is a corporate project or hiking with the grandkids. To take it to an "F1 level in life", you have to look at the body holistically and consider muscle strength as one of the most important measures of prevention and rehabilitation. Whether it is in motorsport, in business or in everyday life. In medicine, we speak of primary and secondary prevention.

Suppose you want to introduce only the most effective strategies into your routine - not to prepare for a triathlon, casting for Baywatch series, or swing your hips on a catwalk - but rather to maximize your wellbeing and look good naked. What’s the perfect strategy for a strong, lean, healthy, and happy body?

What actually happens when I don't workout?

Recently, I have actually received a few messages - be it via WhatsApp, SMS, or mail. Most of them had a discreetly desperate undertone and read, for example, "I see how my muscles, steeled with a lot of commitment, are fading away". But what happens in such a situation where you do not give your body the necessary stimulus and are there perhaps some quick tricks with which you can counteract a "physical decline"? Of course, and I'll show you how.
