The Principle of Effort and Rest

In order to organise physical efforts and relaxation in an optimal way.

We have recomposed the sport and relaxation offers of your weekly schedule! It is our aim to optimise the success of your fasting cure even more.

Our novelty is the alternation of an active sports day and a day of recreation or relaxation. The alternation of physical effort and relaxation is very important in order to reach any training effect. Especially in view of the extraordinary conditions of a fasting cure it is important to bear this in mind.

Biologists entitle this effect „supercompensation“. After an intense training stimulation the body does not only restore the original physical condition but is also providing an ameliorated physical condition. If you keep this training up, you will experience a steady improvement in performance.

If you are lacking sufficient resting periods however, the exact opposite takes place: The training performance decreases. The sporting activity does not have a positive effect anymore but can possibly cause damage on a long-term basis.

The sensibility for your body signals will increase during your stay. You will feel how nutrition and therapeutic methods in combination with sporting activity will have a significant impact on your well-being. You will be able to get a feel for the right measure of physical efforts.
