Whether sun or snow, sport is the way for our Marcella
In my spare time, I like being out in nature, whether on my stand-up paddle board in summer or on a sled in winter. In winter I especially like to take long walks in the beautiful scenery of the Salzburg mountains. The fresh air always gives me an energy boost and I can recharge my batteries. I love doing yoga all year round and that’s why I end 2019 with 108 sun salutations. Yoga keeps me fit in winter and I also manage to relax while performing the asanas.
Sun + ski touring: the perfect combination for Maddalena
In winter I lack the motivation to get physically active. However, this is usually only the case until Christmas, after which I feel guilty and pack my ski touring equipment to go to the nearest mountain, usually the Zwölferhorn in St Gilgen. If I have enough time I start with one lap. But I need good weather, otherwise the urge to stay on the comfortable couch wins easily.
Action is the plan for mum Lisa and son Paul
How do I keep myself fit in winter? This question is answered by my son Paul, who persuades me to go on early morning sled rides. After that, of course a snowman has to be built, but not just any snowman, the largest in the neighbourhood. In the afternoon he learns skiing. Almost every day he slides down the hill, with a few falls and lets his mum carry him back up again. Believe me, this programme keeps you fit.
Hannah says: “I like to be in the mountains!”
My favourite winter sport as a true Austrian is of course skiing! A morning on the slopes, high above the clouds with bright sunshine and a sweeping panorama. You can take a deep breath so high up and forget stressful daily life for a moment. In my opinion there is simply nothing better on a beautiful winter day. It is so beautiful, so easy and you also do something good for yourself and your body.
There is no bad weather for Sabine – only bad clothes
Even in winter, for me the best place is on the back of a horse. It’s the best place to switch off and recharge your batteries after a hard day’s work. Of course, it is most beautiful when the sun is shining, when the snow sparkles and the snow-covered forests are peaceful. But even when the weather is not so great, the horse needs to exercise. So I spend a lot of time out in the fresh air, keeping fit.
Sarah enjoys winter in nature
When the snow trickles softly and envelopes the landscape in soft white, I like to head outdoors. Whether skiing, ice skating or building a snowman – I enjoy spending time outdoors. So I can really switch off, the body gets going and I can refill my vitamin D reserves with a bit of luck. And after a wonderful winter day of ice skating or in ski boots, the mulled wine tastes even better! 😉
