Staying fit all year-round is the name of the game – not just in cyclingBeing at the peak of your mental and physical fitness is vital in professional sport. Yet world-class cyclists have added challenges to overcome. The riders are constantly exposed to extreme external factors, such as unpleasant weather conditions during training or the many hours spent jetting off to race locations, public transport or varying hygiene standards in the countries hosting major cycling events. And there’s also the fact that cyclists push themselves to the limits of the physically possible on a daily basis. This places significant strain on the mind and body.
‘Recovery’ is the magic word
If professional athletes get sick, they find it impossible to maintain their peak fitness and achieve the necessary results for the team – a catastrophe in elite sports. The BORA-hansgrohe cyclists have therefore made extensive expert knowledge in recovery and health protection a core part of their team philosophy and have called on the title sponsor to share its showering know-how. After the race, the exhausted team members can use hansgrohe spa showers as part of their cool-down routine.
But it’s not just the cycling pros who need to be at the top of their game – we all do, every day, in often challenging circumstances. Why not make your shower a feel-good fitness partner to boost vitality? Whether after a workout or a day at work, a showering routine that alternates between hot and cold water can work wonders when it comes to recovery.
