Energy bundle on and off the slopes: Sabrina Cakmakli
Sabrina's ideal day? It includes many activities and is bursting with energy. After many successful jumps on the halfpipe, she jumps on her mountain bike, goes for a ride and ends the day with a delicious dinner with friends or the team.
What Sabrina loves about her sport, how she deals with the hole after a big competition or who her role models are, she reveals to us in the Reboots Athlete Spotlight.
"I can only recommend the Reboots. Especially for competitive athletes or ambitious athletes, it's a super helpful tool to speed up your recovery and get fit for the next training session as soon as possible."

1. What sport do you do, and how did you get into it?
I am a freeskier in the discipline halfpipe. Growing up in a family that loves winter sports, I was on skis for the first time when I was 2 years old. At the age of 7 I changed to snowboarding and thought I would never ski again, because snowboarding is "much cooler". But at the age of 14 I found my love for freestyle skiing and since then I can't be without my skis ;-)
2. What makes your sport special?
The special thing about our sport is the freedom and creativity. Every athlete has his own style and is allowed to do the tricks he wants to show. We are a great community that thrives on camaraderie and cohesion.
3. What has been your biggest (sporting) success so far?
Participation in 3 Olympic Games and the X Games in Aspen. World Cup podium, Junior World Champion
4. What motivates you to get up every day?
The motivation to work on myself every day and get a little bit better. Whether it's in the weight room, on the skis or in acrobatics training. Every day, even in the summer, you have the big goals in your head that you work for every day. X Games participation, World Cup podiums, Olympic Games, etc. that's usually motivation enough :)
5. Who is your biggest role model and why?
I've always been very inspired by Lindsey Vonn's mentality as an athlete. In our field, it was Kaya Turski, Sarah Burke and Jamie Anderson, three pioneers who made our sport what it is today. However, I am also inspired by many of my friends who train with me or play the same sport at the highest level.
6. How do you deal with the "hole" after a big competition?
I try to set myself new goals relatively quickly. That doesn't always have to be athletic, but it can also be goals in other areas such as studying, etc. Back then, after the 2018 Olympics, I had a relatively long phase where I really couldn't motivate myself to train. Every day was tedious and I didn't know what I was actually training for anymore. Fortunately, I had it under better control after the 2022 Olympics. It's just damn important to keep setting new goals and have precise plans on how you want to reach that goal. It's important to have a training structure and plan every day. A supportive environment can also be very helpful in this regard.
Off to a desert island - which 3 things do you take with you and why? My reboots of course ;-) a bikini and a coffee machine ha ha ;-)
It's just us here: name a fun fact about you that no one knows yet! I can't do without coffee in the morning. I never watch movies, I always get bored. I usually fall asleep on movie dates. If I'm not sporty, I can get pretty nasty.
What dish can you not resist? And why? Any variation of vegetarian bowls.
1. How important is the topic of "regeneration" for you?
The topic of regeneration is extremely important. We competitive athletes often neglect regeneration. I, too, am often a person who always believes that I don't need breaks, until I realize the hard way that I probably do.
2. What does the perfect regeneration look like for you?
Of course, that always depends somewhat on the situation and depending on what resources are available to us. But that can range from physiotherapy, ice baths to sauna or just spending a relaxing day with friends. What is always with me, however, are my Reboots lite. And they are also used every day :)
3. How did you become aware of Reboots back then?
I tested the Reboots at the X Games back then and used them more often and was totally hooked. Then I came across you on Instagram through other athletes and then sought contact with you. Now I always have my Reboots Go Lite with me everywhere, and I'm super happy to have you as a partner by my side.
4. When do you prefer to use your Reboots?
My favorite time is after a workout. After a long day on the mountain, but also after long trips or between long flights, it's the best thing to get the circulation in the body going again a bit.
5. What do you do while you're in reboots?
Phew, mostly playing around on my phone or watching workout videos from the day. Or read a book and just relax.
6. Your secret tip for reboots use?
I prefer to use program C, when the boots pump up evenly once and then let up again. I usually sit in the boots for about 20 minutes and am at strength 12.
Even though some professional athletes have already realized that regeneration is an important factor to reach their performance goals, many athletes are still not educated enough. If you want to learn more about regeneration and thus improve your performance many times over, then you will find a lot of useful information in our Knowledge Base.
