A couple have shared their amazing transformation from a regular-sized duo into into bodybuilding champions – in under a YEAR.
Anna Golebiowska, 28, and boyfriend Jakub Loza, 32, used to work out a couple of times a week but ten months ago they decided to become bodybuilders.
They changed their diets and now between them they eat 80 eggs and 30lbs of chicken a week.
The muscly pair have taken the bodybuilding world by storm, becoming British champions and representing GB at the world championships.
Anna and Jakub have to eat every three hours throughout the day to maintain their physique.
Anna, of Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, said: ”We have five meals a day.
”Breakfast is based on eggs usually, sometimes porridge, and rest of the meals are based on chicken or turkey, rice, veggies and olive oil,”
The couple put away a staggering 13.5 kilos or 30lbs of chicken and turkey every week – that’s 45 whole chicken breasts.
For breakfast Anna said she typically ate four eggs, veg and fruit.
“It’s really boring” said Jaku. “But all of that pain and hard work you’ve given is worth it – the feeling when you’re going onto the stage, and coming first was is the best feeling ever.
“Everything, the total transformation that happened to us in a such a short time – people spend years trying to qualify for the British Finals, its unbelievable that we have achieved it in less than year.”
The couple now run a sports nutrition shop, Empire Sports in Weston-super-Mare.
They started going to fitness industry events to promote their shop which often featured bodybuilders.
The couple were inspired to compete and started training in January 2018.
Their first competition was in May and by the end of October Jakub had won 2nd place in the UKUP British Finals and Anna had come first in her category.
“I couldn’t believe it, I was crying on stage,” Anna said.
The couple, both from Poland, met 12 years ago in the UK.
Anna works as an accountant while Jakub works in the store but they spend time together each day, when they work out.
“People ask us in the street, ‘how did you do that?’” said Anna.
“We tell them and then they want to work out. Its so exciting to motivate people – it’s what really encourages me to carry on,” she added.
While their routine is grueling Anna says they help each other get through.
“As a couple I think its easier to stay motivated and strong. In our kitchen you will not find any cheat food. We are both doing what we do love, what make our lives even more exciting.”
