For seven weeks now, Julia Dujmovits has set up her preparation camp for the next winter in Maui, Hawaii.
Austria's best female race boarder of the past season is currently training hard in order to bring in the necessary fitness – not only for a new season but already for the up-coming Olympics in Sochi, 2014.
Six days a week, the Burgenland resident trains some four to five hours following a strict schedule put together by trainer expert Peter Eichberger, who works for Dujmovits since this May and has been also helping out pro athletes like Didier Defago or Didier Cuche.
“There isn't a better way for me to get in shape for the next winter,” said Dujmovits. “Peter is the perfect fitness coach and Maui the perfect island, the place to be.”
As the 25-years-old race board lady decided to spend the time all alone, the two time World Cup race winner (Nendaz, SUI, 2007; Telluride, USA, 2011) can totally focus on her daily strength training, endurance and coordination exercises.
Surfing, snorkeling, hiking or kite surfing brings some time of recovery.
Especially as Dujmovits has only one day off.
“Sunday is the only day without any exercise or training unit. Then it's time for me to relax or check out the island.”
On July 3rd, it's time for Dujmovits to go home to Austria. However, it will be just a quick stop-over for the 3rd ranked rider of the 2012 Parallel World Cup ranking.
Mid of August, the whole team will head for an on-snow trainings camp in New Zealand.
