for Athletes and Coaches
Train with your body instead of against it.
Your Body is not a Machine.
…even if you sometimes wish it were.
When you train and perform ambitiously, you want your body to function. You do everything for that: you have planned your training, nutrition and regeneration and you track your progress. And because you have recognized the importance of mental health and strength, you have already studied mental training and sports psychology.
And yet you don’t have total control. And that can feel very uncomfortable.
When your coach tells you what to change and you just don’t know what they mean.
When you have a movement that feels right, but the video analysis shows it’s not optimal.
When you just feel that something is not going right, but you don’t know what.
When always at the most important moment a part of your body or your thoughts get tense.
When you lose your desire because you can’t get rid of this stupid habit, even though it would take you to the next level.
When you notice how you are still inhibited to make certain movements after injuries months later.
Or if you simply want to deepen your knowledge about yourself, your body, your psyche and the connections.
This is the right place for you.
The better you understand yourself – the “blueprint of your body”, the influence of your thoughts and your learning history – the better you can handle yourself in the above mentioned situations. You will increase your leeway when things get tight and you will learn ways to find your own solutions to your challenges.
How you do that, we will work out together. In conversation, in movement, with fun and with sweat.
And sometimes – if necessary – also with a kick in the a*…
In the contact form you can write me what’s on your mind right now! I will answer in any case.
“The work on the upper body backswing has made a huge difference. If I hadn’t worked with Stefanie, I wouldn’t be as efficient as I am now.
One special quality is her stamina. You can tell that she wants to achieve something together with us and wants to see progress. And she just doesn’t give up. I think that’s very good.”

“The competitive rowers (like Jason Osborne) that Stefanie worked with got a better understanding of the use of the hip in the rowing motion. I recommend working with Stefanie to all competitive rowers who place a high importance on relaxation in addition to the tension phases in the rowing stroke.”

„The main realization was that many joints are somewhere else than I thought they were. It allowed me to better control the levers that act in rowing (…). Once I adapted my imagination to the anatomical reality, the forces acted more directly.“
- Benedict Nobel, née Ganzeboom, former competitive rower
