Michi has become 73% stronger and 25 kg of fat lighter. Every Tuesday for the past 12 months, Michi Berlinka, 50, rings the bell at 13:10 sharp at Löwenstrasse 53a, AURUM Fit Studio in Zurich. "If someone had told me that I would name a fitness subscription as the best investment under 4000 Swiss francs, I would have thought the person was crazy. After all, I played handball and soccer for over 20 years. Unfortunately, I had suffered a knee injury, developed a great liking for everything that is unhealthy, and weighed 130 kg thanks to a lack of self-discipline. Today I'm the crazy one, already looking forward on Monday to the fitness appointment on Tuesday!"
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.
As the saying goes, opposites attract. This is also true for my fitness routine, specifically for my yoga practice and weekly strength training. Even though yoga and strength training don't have much in common at first glance, from my experience they complement each other extremely well. If you ever found yourself on a yoga mat trying to feel and look good doing asanas, then you will recognize yourself in my story. Maybe you will even get inspired to pair your yoga routine with strength training!
