PRESS RELEASE | October 2017
We all know that exercise is important for our health, but according to Michael Multerer, sports expert and Head of Exercise Therapy at the Park Igls Mayr Clinic, ‘Exercise is the key to happiness’ too. As a former top athlete turned trainer and mental coach, not a day goes by when he doesn’t engage in some type of sport. And he shares that passion with Park Igls guests. ‘I want to flick the switch and teach people how important it is to build sport and exercise into their everyday lives. It’s all about improving quality of life, health and wellbeing.’
Exercise is a central element of Modern Mayr Medicine, and fitness at the Park Igls is based on five pillars: strength, heart and circulation, mobility, coordination and regeneration. A team of 12 fitness instructors are on hand to help guests choose the right options for them. With 10 exercise classes a day and 65 different exercise units available, there’s something to suit every age, taste and activity level. Activities include both individual and group classes, indoor and outdoors, ranging from traditional favourites like Yoga and swimming to innovative activities like fascia training and NATUREletics.
But how do you make sure you keep up what you’ve started? Multerer advises keeping things simple and making fitness fun. You don’t need special equipment, complicated techniques or trendy fitness studios. The best exercise is often not the one you feel you should be doing, but the one you enjoy – that way you’re more likely to stick at it. Train regularly but make sure you mix things up and vary the type and intensity of the exercise you’re doing. And set goals to help you stick at it. Being aware of how exercise is improving your quality of life will help you battle your inner couch potato.
