Hi! I’m Arni, 30 years old, hobby pianist, competitive chess player, recreational athlete, dreamy bookworm, old school gamer and globetrotter.

Ah, and I’ve also got a severe haemophilia A. But fortunately, that barely influences me anymore.

This time, I’d like to face up to the German Sports Badge.

That’s a decoration of the German Olympic Sports Federation for superior and versatile physical fitness regarding endurance, strength, speed and coordination.

And that’s what I want!

An idea was born

“Could I still do it?” That was the question I asked myself when I thought about my old German Sports Badge (GSB). The one (and only) I earned at university 6 years ago. Not a long time, you may say, but it has happened a lot since that. At my left ankle, arthrosis was diagnosed and my doctors told me to be very careful with some sports, especially with running and lifting heavy weights. Anyway… An idea was born!

Let’s be active

Don’t get me wrong. The advice of my docs has always been very important for me – and always will be. But I also remembered a sentence I’ve read during my time at university (by the way, I studied M. Sc. Health Promotion): Inactivity is bad, activity is good, and overload is bad. So, let’s be active!

The German Sports Badge

The GSB is an award for special physical fitness and consists of four categories: endurance, strength, speed and coordination. In each category, there are different exercises, but you only have to choose and perform one. In the following table, you can see the requirements for me (age: 30).
