Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis & Performance Diagnostics

Exercise is life – It is with this maxim in mind that we want to pamper and support our guests in the Hohe Salve Sport Resort with all the resources we have. These days a lack of exercise is one of the biggest problems our modern society faces. Physical and mental fitness are often not paid much attention, with optimum, individual equilibrium remaining for the most part undiscovered.

Here in the Sport Resort, working with our guests, we seek to find the right balance between exercise and relaxation. Via: 

  • a state-of-the-art infrastructure in the Move & Relax area
  • services which are individually tailored to suit the guest
  • an understanding of a wide range of requirements  
  • the professionalism of all our staff
  • highly qualified experts in the areas of Sports Science / Wellness / Fitness / Nutrition / Beauty

The focus of the Move & Relax concept is on performance diagnostics, using bio-electrical impedance analysis, along with spiroergometry. This is carried out in our 1400m² Move & Relax area along with trained sports scientists. These measurements are suitable for any age group and for any fitness level. Our goal is to optimise individual performance and regeneration - which is often neglected - and to enhance your immune system. You enjoy fantastic experiences and impressions, giving you a greater understanding of your own body, and you get to take all this knowledge back home with you.

Your individual health check with our Move & Relax experts

Everyone is welcome here in Sport Resort – whether they are a guest staying in the hotel or a day visitor. The sporting opportunities available in the Move Area are huge. We focus on your health and on improving it. The emphasis is on individual checks and the parameters these yield, with exercise, regeneration and nutrition being linked up.  

Toni Innauer is the head of the concept. The former Austrian ski jumper and ski jump trainer has developed the strategy together with the hotel management team.  

'Here in Sport Resort we work together with guests to find the right balance between exercise and recovery – through a state-of-the-art infrastructure, an understanding of a wide range of needs, and with our highly qualified experts. 

I am particularly delighted to be a part of this innovative hotel concept, after all, the Move & Relax theme relates to many of the experiences I have had in my own professional and private life. Exercise is definitely a very significant aspect of my life.' 

  • Toni Innauer, Austrian Olympic ski jumping champion and former Nordic Sports Director at ÖSV [Austrian ski association] 

    In Patrick Koller – Manager of the Move & Relax area – we have found a 'local hero'. As a sports scientist and Olympic starter in the ski cross event, he brings with him the best pre-requisites to implement the concept. 

    'With our Move & Relax concept, we have made it our goal to enhance your health during your stay, through exercise, regeneration and nutrition. Our common vision is to enable people to enjoy a longer and healthier life. With our infrastructure and our staff, we seek to be among the best health concepts in the Alpine area.

    We put together a bespoke programme for you, based on a variety of highly professional services. The aim is to generate renewed energy for your daily life. As a former top-class athlete, for many years I pursued a strict training regimen; on the one hand to be able to compete with the world's elite and on the other, to prevent injuries and setbacks. I now want to pass on my knowledge to our guests.'

Our anamnesis tools & health parameters

The anamnesis tools we use in Hohe Salve Sport Resort to measure your health parameters are varied and well thought-out. For instance you will receive details about your heart rate, your performance capacity and your metabolism. These analysis parameters will be explained in a personal consultation with our sports scientists. We devise a training plan with you and define your personal goals.

Analysis is made by asking the following questions:

  • What training plans really are achievable?  
  • How can training be integrated in your daily life?  
  • When and how can goals be realised?  
  • How can I get the maximum out of myself and exercise in a way that is healthy?

Training in our Move area is unique and reliable:  

  • Personal and individual
  • Analytical and high quality
  • Economic and time-saving


Sports medicine performance diagnostics 

The highlight of the various options available during your health check is performance diagnostics. Using spiroergometry and bio-electrical impedance analysis, relevant parameters for your own personal health and fitness level are determined. Participants have their physical exercise capacity analysed. This forms the basis for the next stages in your training and for your long-term success.  

BIA – Bio-electrical impedance analysis 

Bio-electrical impedance analysis (BIA) is one of our most sought-after anamnesis tools. Body composition can be measured using BIA. This method is scientifically recognised and is used to determine body water, muscle mass and fat content. Unlike traditional body weighing scales, BIA helps determine whether weight is muscle mass or fat tissue. Bio-electrical impedance analysis does not just ascertain your current status, it can also be used to measure success.  

How does bio-electrical impedance analysis work? 

  1. Two electrodes - one attached to the back of your hand, the other to the bridge of your foot – generate an electric power field. 
  2. To take the measurement, a weak current of electricity flows through your body – this is not something you will feel.  
  3. Different tissues in the body conduct electricity to varying degrees. Body water which contains electrolytes, conducts electricity particularly well. Body fat has an insulating effect.  
  4. This makes it possible for fat mass and water to be determined.  
  5. The results are then recorded in graphics and colour as part of a measurement log. 
  6. Our experts show you how to correctly interpret the results and how these can be incorporated into your training plan.


Spiroergometry is one of the diagnostic procedures which we offer in our Move area. The term comes from: 

  • Spiro = Breathing  
  • Ergo = Work  
  • Metrie = Measurement  

By measuring breathing during physical exertion, your body's response is scrutinised using different parameters qualitatively and quantitatively. This includes: 

  • the heart 
  • the circulation 
  • breathing  
  • and metabolism  

Spiroergometry provides an insight into breathing rate, circulation and energy metabolism – in real time. Even during the stress test, readings with information about energy metabolism, heart performance, lungs and muscles can be read 'live' on the screen. With the help of spiroergometry, exact details can be determined with regard to when you are training in a zone where fat is being metabolised and what effort you need to improve oxygen uptake, and therefore enhance your maximum performance ability. This method is both objective and reliable, and is already used as standard in top-level sport.

Using this data, our sports scientists at the Resort can precisely analyse your individual performance capacity. This then opens up perfect conditions for developing a suitable training plan.  

How does spiroergometry work? 

  1. Physical performance ability is measured by exercising on the bike.  
  2. Using a mask, respiratory gases are collected and measured in real time using sensors.  
  3. With the help of computer software, this data is analysed and clearly presented.  
  4. With each breath, spiroergometry reveals the level of physical effort at which you burn body fat and/or sugars, to produce energy.  
  5. The test begins with easy pedalling.  
  6. Effort and intensity rise steadily. 
  7. The test is completed when you reach a level of subjective exhaustion.

Exercise, regeneration and nutrition.

Consultation and performance diagnostics are offered. Working with the guest, we consider quality of life & well-being - optimising them step by step. The key is having an awareness of your own body and paying attention to what it is telling you.

A certain amount of physical and mental energy is required within our frequently performance-driven society. Whether it is in our profession life, during sports, or in our private lives. We want to make sure that all our guests take away a long-lasting awareness of their health away with them after their time in Hohe Salve Sport Resort.

After exercise, individual regeneration plays an important role. Body and mind should always be at a point where you feel great.  

Our guests also ought to gain new energy through the right nutrition. After all, anyone who exercises also needs to replenish their energy stores and have good reserves, and this comes from food. Our Move & Relax Energy meals emphasise nourishing and high quality ingredients.
