The information in this section is for beginning, intermediate, and advanced athletes who already have some knowledge about—and experience in—fitness and training. The articles are categorized within the five core areas of our philosophy: inspiration, training & exercise, nutrition, yoga, and health maintenance. I hope you can discover ideas on finding inspiration and tips about how you can improve your fitness, prepare for a marathon, build a better running body, and other related topics as well as information on other sports.
Much of this advice was accumulated during my career in running and I hope it will be as beneficial for your fitness and training as it was for mine. I was fortunate to invite friends, colleagues, and coaches who have wonderful knowledge in their respected fields. Furthermore, we have ”Running Stories” for you (including information about the World Marathon Majors), and interviews with world-class athletes of all ages who share their secrets of success.
As a result, this Website has information to offer those of you with a special interest in sports and in becoming the best you can be. And I am excited to share our insights about what each of us can do to improve our fitness and overall sense of wellbeing via our Take The Magic Step-Website and Uta’s Insights. I invite you to Take The Magic Step® with me. I hope Uta’s Insights can serve as an additional source of information filled with personal messages and tips. From time to time, I will try to help guide you with suggested reading selections on this Website to assist you in receiving even more value from our library of articles.
The essence of our philosophy is that the steps we take today can make us better tomorrow. The first step is to imagine what you would like to change about your health and fitness routine. The next step is to rethink the reasons you feel are holding you back. The more you truly want to change, the better your chances will be for success. Changing any part of your life begins with changing the way you think, since your thoughts create your actions, and your actions create the life you have.
You may discover that getting better both mentally and physically is not about quick fixes, but rather consistency, determination, and patience. The goal is to make small, gradual changes to your daily habits so that they will become a part of your lifestyle and enhance your performance. Add some fun along the way by taking the time to recognize and appreciate the improvement you are making.
I wish you good luck for your fitness, training, and upcoming events!
