No matter whether you are a professional athlete or a sorts enthusiastic: the knowledge and understanding about your own body is the key to a successful training. What athletes have only been able to experience through extensive tests, is now possible with the ambiotex shirt for everyone – without any blood sampling or the help of a sports medic. The wearable was presented and tested at a kick-off event in the PRIME TIME fitness studio at dizzying heights. On the 53rd floor of the MAIN TOWER, selected sportjournalists were able to test the ambiotex shirt. Highly sensitive ECG sensors, with an accuracy of more than 99 percent, determine the heart rate data of the wearer. The data is processed in a TechUnit, which is fixed magnetically to the shirt and illustrated in the corresponding app. Florian Dennerlein, CEO of ambiotex and passionate athlete, explains: „I know from my own experience how important it is to listen to the signals of your body to avoid overtraining or even worse consequences. The ambiotex shirt helps and supports the wearer by making up even the finest dissonances of the body.”

For DHB-Teammanager Oliver Roggisch it was a “giant event” – and we also felt that way! Within the scope of the #nähergehtnicht campaign, we were very close on the day of the handball together with the AOK in Hamburg. In addition to the national matches of the DHB teams, there was a varied program for young and old with many great participatory activities, e.g. the AOK Star Training. There, the kids were able to demonstrate their throwing and dribbling skills at various modules and got a little insight into the training of the handball pros. Highlights of the day were clearly the two international matches of the #Ladies and #BadBoys against Sweden. The day of the handball was a great family festival in the spirit of this popular team sports.

Are you kidding? Did former football profi Gerald Asamoah stopped his coach career to teach the guys of the Harlem Globetrotters a few new moves? No, all clear! Asamoah remains faithful to soccer, obviously he has also been enjoying the basketball game. But this was due to the two boys of the Harlem Globetrotters and their magic moves in the course of the “kinder + Sport Basketball Academy”. The latter invited basketball-inspired kids to a small special test day in Gelsenkirchen, where the basketball newbies could test their basketball skillz. The test day was spoiled by the two Globetrotters Cheese Chisholm and El Gato Melendez, who came from the USA. And the long way has paid off! The kids, the parents, the organizers and the journalists of regional and interregional media have had a lot of fun! After the event Asamoah went back to the grass. Cheese and El Gato went on to Leipzig and Stuttgart, where they met many, many more junior basketball players during two more test days of the “kinder + Sport Basketball Academy”!
42,195 kilometers, 40,000 runners and more than a million spectators at the circuit: the Berlin marathon is not only one of the fastest marathons in Germany but also the most impressive. The perfect surrounding for a marathon debut or a new PB according to “Unlimited You”, don’t you think? Maren and Flo – two famous fitness bloggers – committed themselves to be unlimited and are found themselves on an ambitious marathon journey with NIKE. From the individually adapted marathon training schedule with NRC coach Jan Fitschen, personal pacemaker to the perfect shoe for sprints, long runs and regeneration runs up to the shakeout run with the NRC Berlin as the final motivation: Maren and Flo were able to focus on the race day itself and completely concentrate on their run. The outcome? Two super strong finishes! Maren’s timing stopped at 3:41:44h – an incredible finish for her first (!) marathon. And what about Flo? Flo was in really good shape as well. He was able to remove his goal “sub 3:30:00h” from his to do list. Congratz, Flo and Maren! We´re proud of you and looking forward to upcoming challenges…

Malle is only once a year? Okay! So we better stick to the things that are two times a year like the Women´s Health Camp. For the second time in 2016 the camp attracted almost 140 ladies addicted to sports. Women from all around Germany – including fitness blogger RoxisEcke – went to southern Spain to spend a sporty and healthy week under palmtrees. The participants of the camps autumn edition expected a wide range of courses from which they could choose up to five units per day. How about a run in the morning followed by a bootcamp, a barbell technique course, Pilates, TRX or an excursion with the road bike? Because of a team of 13 coaches there is barely anything which does not exist. Maybe that’s the reason why the camp in May 2017 is already booked up again…
