Following the wrap-up of the ski season 2016/17 and her assignments as ARD winter sports authority at the World Cup and the Ski World Championships in St. Moritz, three-time Olympic champion Maria Höfl-Riesch is devoting her spring and summertime efforts to the theme of fitness. Starting in mid-April she will again be on board the MS Europa 2 with her fitness programme BE.YOU as it careens over the waves. She will personally accompany, advise and train the passenger participants on their seaward journey which this time heads to Colombo, Sri Lanka via the Maledives and the Seychelles, then onward to Reunion and Mauritius. At the same time, Maria will be writing her column for “freundin” magazine in which she addresses and delves into a variety of subjects revolving around the theme of fitness. And her fitness book “Maria Makes You Fit” which was released by publishers Gräfe and Unzer in January is already in its third edition in the bookstores.
