Arnd Peiffer - Biathlon

Arnd Peiffer was born the 18.03.1987 in Lower Saxony Wolfenbüttel. At an age of 9 years, Arnd started biathlon in 1996 at his home team WSV Clausthal-Zellerfeld. He finished his Abitur in 2006 at the Robert-Koch-Gymnasium and started his apprenticeship as a police law enforcement officer at the federal police force after a volunteer social year in the sports sector. 

In the course of the extensive brand-relaunch Schildkröt was able to sign Arnd Peiffer, the currently most successful german biathlon athlete, as a new brand ambassador. Born in Lower Saxony, now choice-bavarian, Arnd can look back on many medals, Olympic victories (a.o. Olympia-gold at 10-km-sprint 2018 at Pyeongchang) and world championship titles. For his performances in the season 2018/19 the current world champion was honored with the golden ski, which is considered to be the highest award among german skiing athletes.

During an interview he explains: „I always take the MF-Roll with me. This is very important for the fascia training and for the softening of the muscles. Then of course the fitness bands. They are easy to transport and nearly don’t need any space. So you can always do stability-training, even on the hotel room.“

Bene Mayr - Freeskiing

Free skiing is a style of skiing. Just as the name suggests, you move freely on your skis. It is now an Olympic sport and I was part of the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi in the freestyle disciplines slopestyle. You ski over jumps, you attempt air tricks as flips and turns, land backwards and forwards, ski down the course backwards and forwards. 

Schildkröt Fitness equipment is always included in my training program. Generally the muscles protect the skier in case he should fall, that is why it is so important to strengthen the muscles with a training program.  A well trained body is enormously important for turns and jumps. Here we do a lot with gym balls. I always have fitness bands or the sling trainer with me when I travel. You can easily use them in the hotel before you hit the slopes. These are the things you can do all year long. 

In general Schildkröt is a cool brand, due to the many product lines and the huge variety of products. There is the table tennis line, the fun sports and the fitness line, and it is a treat to work with a brand and people whose passion is sports.
