What does sport mean to such a successful athlete like you?
Becoming an Olympic champion was already my childhood dream and I managed to fulfill it! Skiing helped me to recognize my strengths, to believe in myself and to push myself to my limits. This intense period of my life has shaped me a lot and made me who I am today. Sport has brought out the best in me, so it is and will remain an important part of my life that I never want to miss.
How has your sports routine changed since your career?
In the past, the focus was on performance in skiing, but today regular training is my balance in everyday life, which for me is simply part of a healthy lifestyle along with a healthy, balanced diet.
Especially as a mom, I want to stay fit, in a good mood and healthy. To do this, I currently use my son's bedtime very actively with a 30-50 minute run or walk (depending on the distance) to my fitness room at the ARX boutique hotel. There I set up a workout routine of about 20-30 minutes. Henry enjoys his nap in the sporty stroller during this time. I like to get a lot of activity in a relatively short time in circuit training with complex exercises and full-body workouts. That way I can use the midday sleep most effectively and get the most out of myself.
How do you always manage to stay motivated?
For me, sports are simply part of life. However, in a stressful everyday life, it's not always easy to find the motivation and energy to do sports. Personally, I find it easier to motivate myself by setting up routines. Besides, my little family is my biggest motivation to live as long, healthy and happy life as possible. So exercise is not only my tip for a Healthy Lifestyle, but for Overall-Happiness in general.
