Doctors as sports advisers

Various studies verify that those who do sport improve their life expectancy, prevent the need for care and strengthen their immune systems. Furthermore, exercise also has a positive impact on the mood and memory. But it's not always so easy to find the right kind of activity for senior citizens. Many are uncertain as to how much exercise they can take and what kind of sport suits them best. They would like advice and help. This is exactly where our Sport Health Park comes in! To start with, sports experts talk with the individuals to find out which is the most suitable group. Then our doctor Christine Fischer-Dorsch performs a medical examination including exercise ECG, lung function test and physical examination to see whether the suitability for the chosen group can be recommended from a health point of view. The most important thing is that the type of exercise is neither overtaxing nor inadequately challenging for the individual concerned.

Making contacts

The groups promote not only physical fitness: they also offer a good opportunity for making contact: some members then meet up with others at the weekend to go hiking or walking.

There are no upper or lower age limits, the groups are open to everyone.
To find out more or make an appointment, please call Petra Scholl (phone +49(0) 30 - 450 83 550), from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays to Fridays and also from 1.30 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursdays 

Berlin Sport Health Park is an association with preventive medical alignment that was founded in the late '80 among others by the Berlin Sport Doctors Association, Berlin State Sports Association and Berlin Medical Council. The groups are led by qualified sports instructors. The monthly membership fees range from €28 to €33. The fees include initial and check-up medical examinations. You can join the Sport Health Park at the start of each month.
