Anita Bekus

Our brand ambassador. Anita is a multiple Polish and world champion in Fitness, Bikini Fitness and MMA matches.

I can start with the quote: “weaker sex but stronger.” I have been highly active ever since early childhood. Even then, every physical activity gave me pleasure and the thrill of rivalry motivated me even more – to be the first, to be faster, to do more.

My tendencies were noticed in primary school by a dance and gymnastics teacher, who quickly instilled her passion in me. I treated practice very seriously and I was soon offered to join a gymnastic fitness competition, which was my first time on the fitness stage, at the age of 13. It was an incredible experience and I found the atmosphere so fascinating that I made a very mature decision for my age: that was something I wanted to do.

I practised year after year and my efforts were rewarded with numerous international achievements. At the age of 21, feeling that I had done and achieved everything, I found a new challenge and I started to train for and attend figure competitions – Bikini Fitness contests. And since my motto is that whatever I do, I do it well, years of hard work and sacrifice allowed me to achieve spectacular international success in the IFBB. But a time came where I felt fulfilled again so I looked for another challenge.

It did not take long. I asked my partner, a Mixed Martial Arts fighter, to give me a few boxing lessons. The effect was my full commitment and a decision that this was the right thing for me. I also gave it my all and relatively soon I won a Polish MMA Championship and a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu championship in amateur tournaments. Soon afterwards, I switched to professional sport, which I have been practising to this day and I do my best to grow as an athlete regardless of challenges and to overcome any obstacles and barriers.

Krzysztof Radzikowski

Our brand ambassador, Krzysztof, is a multiple Polish and World Champion in Strongman strength competitions. Holds several Guinness records

When I first watched Commando as a young boy and I saw Arnold Schwarzenegger, I wanted to be like him: powerful and strong but also caring. My fascination grew with every film he starred in but unfortunately a film would end and I would return to my ordinary life, one look in the mirror bringing me back to earth.

The desire to be like Arnold was so strong that I eventually went to a gym and worked hard, until I could barely breathe, with the way my body was changing motivating me to keep training and to work even harder. I saw the changes day after day and week after week and I liked the effects of my hard work. Months and years went by and I still wanted to be like him and i never expected in my wildest dreams that one day we would be standing face to face and shake hands and that i would be able to talk to him and get to know him a little.

As I got in shape, I became stronger and I wanted to present it so I started to look for competitions and tournaments to enter. Those were the times where Poland also had competitors that I looked up to: Dymek, Toczek, Pudzianowski. I was not always taken seriously. As the youngest participant of one strongman event I competed with award-winning athletes who had returned from global tournaments but I was not discouraged and, to my tremendous satisfaction, I won. And this is how, one competition after another, I gradually reached the point where I am now – I got what I wanted and where were I wanted.

But sport is more than just tournaments and victories, it is often a test of character because I experienced difficult situations too – injuries which pushed me to the second, third or even lower rank, even when I was the favourite. There was one injury that almost prevented me from ever returning to strength athletics but my persistence and mindset surprised the doctors and physiotherapists and I made a comeback. In hindsight, as an athlete that was on of the best on the globe, I regret nothing of the effort I have put in this and I encourage everyone to practice sports and follow their dreams. I can think of nothing more beautiful than to sit in front of a fireplace later in life and tell my grandchildren about my friends, competitors, tournaments and past adventures. No one and nothing can take those memories away from me.
