At Lake Tegernsee, recreation and health have tradition
Health is our most valuable asset:
Nowadays, we are required to perform at our best almost every day at work and in everyday life. The permanent mental stress caused by ubiquitous media presence to day-. night times does not let us come any longer to the rest.
More than ever, we need to take care of our body and mind – to bring both into balance!
For this reason the company health insurances with their experts have developed the AKTIVWOCHE. The Active Week includes preventive courses in the health sector and is offered in fantastic regions in Germany – including in the foothills of the Alps, south of Munich at the beautiful Tegernsee and Schliersee lakes.
The active weeks are a prevention program that has been tried and tested for many years and is based on the latest development standards. Experienced and qualified trainers conduct the courses and provide assistance for your health at home and at work.
But what actually is prevention?
Whether back pain or arthritis: complaints and diseases can be avoided or delayed with a certain probability – if you take care of yourself. Even after the onset of an illness, there is often something that can be done. The possibilities of prevention are manifold. Basically, the term refers to all measures that prevent diseases or injuries or mitigate their consequences. Young or old makes no difference: prevention begins in childhood and continues throughout life.
Preventing diseases before they occur and maintaining health: This is what primary prevention stands for. Preventive measures range from sufficient exercise to healthy nutrition and stress management to abstaining from addictive substances such as nicotine. The guiding principle: The healthier people make their lifestyle, the less likely they are to suffer from illnesses later on.

But what is actually "health hiking? In contrast to conventional hiking, health hiking involves walking about 4 -7 kilometers. Hikes usually last no longer than 2 – 2 ½ hours.
The special feature of this course is the exercises that are performed on the way:
By the movement in nature you take up much oxygen, which is good for heart and cycle. Exercises to Mobilization of the joints, Strengthening the musculature of the locomotor system, Coordination and balance exercises as well as stretching exercises are completed.
In addition, there are the positive effects for the psyche. In nature there are less disturbing stimuli than in normal everyday life with its restlessness, noise and countless visual impressions. The brain has to sort and process less information and comes to rest. With health hiking you learn to be in the "here and now", to leave the everyday life behind and to leave the hamster wheel of negative thoughts. Protects against stress and burnout.
What does "endurance" mean?
Complaints are often not caused by special physical strain, but more and more often by the exact opposite: lack of movement. Musculoskeletal disorders, such as back pain, have been the most common reason for days off work for years. At the same time, the cardiovascular training is improved in order to promote the pumping capacity of the heart on the one hand and the oxygen uptake capacity in the lungs on the other hand. This leads to the fact that a better trained cardiovascular system can perform significantly more with the same load. For example, a well-trained heart needs many fewer beats to pump the same amount of blood through the body than a heart in a not so well-trained cardiovascular system. In the latter case, there is a risk of higher wear and tear due to the large number of more required strokes, which has a negative impact on lifespan.
Preventive endurance training is for everyone who wants to improve their condition. The goal is to slowly increase endurance, learn healthy movement behaviors, and improve flexibility, endurance, strength, stretching, coordination, and movement skills. Exercises with running variations lead from walking to running. Exercises for coordination and strengthening, stretching and fascia work lead to more mobility and strengthen body awareness. Warming up and finally loosening up the muscles leads to a functional movement behavior for which the participants are sensitized. To control one's own endurance, to estimate and divide forces, to control the pulse and to bring the body slowly into endurance, is part of the course.
Germany has "back!
Every third adult in Germany suffers from occasional or regular back pain. Too little sport and too little movement altogether promote the pain in the back. In a society where many people work at computers and also spend most of their free time sitting, back pain is pre-programmed. Whether a series marathon in front of the TV or comfortably reading a book in the armchair – with each of these activities one sits and that usually also still hunched over.
This puts the wrong strain on the intervertebral discs, nerves can be crushed and even deformities can form if the wrong strain is permanent.
Strengthen your skeleton!
Target group of the course are:
– People who sit or stand a lot in everyday life – People who put a lot of strain on their backs in everyday work – People with weak back muscles – People who suffer from tension (muscular insufficiency) – People without diseases requiring treatment
