Get Fit for Life System


Looking down the streets of our towns and cities, into super markets, shops, gyms, fitness clubs, schools, universities, offices, theatres, cinemas…you hardly ever see people with handicaps, disabilities, restrictions and limitations. Therefore, you might think, these individuals belong to a quite small minority. But that is not the case! In North America, for example, close to 15 million of the 300-million-population are handicapped meaning, every 5th person is affected! And there are countless men, women - and children - around the world, not just fire-fighters, police officers, members of rescue teams, soldiers and employees of security agencies, who have to cope with the consequences of accidents, catastrophes, wars and violent assaults for the rest of their days, who were ripped out of their normal life heavily marked, adding to the numbers of disabled people may it be from birth or by a disease. It surely is not easy for a ‘normal’ person to imagine just how far reaching these negative impacts really are.

Those fine individuals have the same dreams and wishes, have the same feelings and emotions, the same needs as anybody else: They want to go to school, train for a job, find a partner, get married, have friends and lead a happy fulfilled life just like you and me. So, where are they all? Shouldn’t we come across them everywhere? Shouldn’t we have handicapped neighbours, colleagues, acquaintances, and friends?.Despite our modern sophisticated technologies providing easy access to plenty information, despite medical achievements, health care systems, despite many organisations, institutions, government rules and regulations for equality, the acceptance and acknowledgement of handicapped and heavily marked people in cultural/social life and in the world of work still is on a comparatively low level. A fact that makes it difficult if not impossible for those people to find their place within our societies. Lack of acceptance and acknowledgement is one aspect. The other is the fact that a large number of people with limitations are not safely brought or brought back to their full potential. Not surprising.

The expenses-factor seems overwhelming: Continuously increasing costs in the health sector with millions of uninsured citizens worldwide seem to make effective long-term treatment with real results for people without sufficient means at their disposal a fairy tale; only too easily and quickly they fall through the net of government health care. More or less left to fend for themselves, they are not able to reach a higher level of independence and self-reliance through more mobility, flexibility, confidence and self-esteem, and they can’t develop their abilities, can’t find a suitable job, and can’t live a ‘normal’ life. Integration or reintegration in a social environment and the world of work is largely denied and the situation can be seriously worsened by depressions and other health problems..


Living the life of a 100 % handicapped person (partial paraplegia through cerebral palsy) I have been able to gather plenty of personal experiences on a private as well as professional level; and the feedback of many people (children, youth, adults) with disabilities and handicaps I came across through my of work as therapist, teacher, instructor and trainer in sports and rehabilitation in Europe and the U.S. tells just the same story:  There is a huge demand for efficient long-term rehabilitation programs in the field of physical as well as mental disabilities, limitations and injuries that are NOT just aimed at certain disabled or injured parts of the body or at specified mental or psychical conditions, but address the whole person - even taking into account the aspects of  personal history, background, social environment and living conditions.

For rehabilitation programs that trigger the development and/or build-up of physical and psychical/mental abilities and capabilities and lead through to long-lasting results promoting integration or re-integration into social as well as professional life. Moreover, these programs have to be affordable even for people with lower income additionally providing sufficient guidelines and advice for continued training at home or in a suitable place, so that costs can be reduced even.


Get fit for Life Systems ©  .There is no such thing as a hopeless case, improvement is always possible - no matter the difficulties, problems, restrictions, limitations, no matter how the chances may seem..For more than 25 years of continuous training, further education and research, the Get Fit for Life systems have been constantly developed, extended and enriched proving their effectiveness in countless cases. They contribute to close the gap between ‘disabled’ and ‘normal’ people; they build a bridge from hopes and dreams to reality, from visions to achievements.


Treatment Introductory conversation about the patient’s/student’s subjective view on personal history, personal life in general, condition, constitution, present therapy if any,  result expectationsIntroduction to Get Fit for Life Systems Thorough evaluation and assessment of present range of motion, large and fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, balance abilities, flexibility, muscular strength, movement abilities.

Establishment: of target heart rate, resting heart rate, re-covering heart rate, max. pulse, resting pulse, re-covering pulse and blood pressure Creation of an individual, customised rehabilitation-/trainings-plan establishing an optimal timetable with short- and long-term goal projective. Continuous monitoring of heart rates, pulse and blood pressure, well being and progress is understood as well as repeated adjustment and modification of the rehabilitation plan to the patient’s/student’s requirements to ensure best results.


Rehabilitation plan components:




Stimulation of the nerve-system to re-open and rebuild nerve-pathways within the muscular support system, connective tissue and spine  Build-up / strengthening of the muscular support system, tendons, ligaments Restoration of the muscular balance / improvement of the muscular ‘teamwork Improvement of motor skills and hand-eye-coordination  Extension of range of motion Improvement of overall condition and strength.


Methods: Traditional far Eastern Martial Arts healing/rehabilitation exercises-techniques, Traditional Martial Arts strengthening exercises and movementsIsometric, negative and positive resistance training, Modern physic/therapeutic rehabilitation exercises and techniques..See video: “Get fit for Life” © / book: “Power from Within Bushido”. Even in cases of paraplegia it is possible to re-build muscles and re-open nerve-paths through stimulation of the nerve-system and the muscle memory by these specific exercises and so experience close to full recovery. I have been able to successfully demonstrate this rehabilitation process with many cerebral palsy and paraplegia patients over time and effort.




Build-up and improvement of inner independency and self-reliance.Build-up and improvement of self-esteem and confidence. Stress relive. promoting of self-esteem. Achievement of inner calmness, serenity, promotion of inner peace.

Get fit for Life Systems © Research. It is intended to further investigate and record the effects of the systems in order to .Create rehabilitation programs customized for an extended range of conditions like. Spina bifida, multiple sclerosis etc. Prove the thesis that the muscles within the muscular support system can regain. Their original capabilities and functions and that nerve-paths can be re-opened even. In paralysed areas of the body given time and continuous training. However do to a host of possibilities, (age, condition, training effort, nutritions) recovery varies on a case to case basis especial by, Spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, partial paraplegia and cerebral palsy.

The goal is to provide further long lasting solutions and to enable and speed up the. Integration or re-integration of even more restricted people in social life in general and. in working life specifically. However many times difference of - recovery on a case to case basis, pending on age, case, effort and self-motivation etc...As a result, costs can be reduced for long-term and partly heavy medication, especially. Pain-killers that have health endangering side effects causing other conditions to be. treated in many cases, as well as the immense costs for aid equipment like wheelchairs, walking aids, counselling and help with day-to-day necessities like eating, cleaning, dressing etc...
