Julia’s workout tips
Julia, how do you motivate couch potatoes?
With a smile (laughs)! No, being active is what’s important. A combination of stamina and strength training with rest periods is ideal. Variety in training allows our bodies to work and therefore increases blood pressure – perfect for anyone who feels too lethargic to work out. Exercise is the best way to focus the mind and keep the body healthy.
Can exercise make you happy?
Working out not only boosts circulation and metabolism, it has also been proven to boost the release of endorphins. There’s a good reason why guests jump for joy at the Jagdhof!
Tell us your summer nutrition tips.
Vitamins and phytochemicals are the nuts and bolts of healthy eating. Fruits and vegetables are in season in summer and autumn, so help yourself whenever you can! Fresh, natural smoothies are ideal – they are refreshing and give you a great vitamin boost.
And the secret to the perfect summer complexion?
Lots of fresh Tyrolean mountain air! I love outdoor activities – whether it’s on the WildeWasserWeg, at the Stubai waterfalls, on the glacier or in the valley. The outdoors has huge health benefits as well as giving you the perfect rosy complexion.
Won’t the sauna do the same thing?
Yes, the sauna increases the skin’s metabolism by about 40%! The sauna’s high temperatures stimulate blood flow in the cells, which also helps to eliminate toxins. Spa days in the summer pay off too!
