About

Hello everyone, welcome to Get Fit Journey. I am Marek, owner of this little corner of the fitness world.

I have been training seriously for about three years and in this time I managed to lose a lot of fat and build a bit of a muscle. I have also learned a few thing about training and diet and started to share this knowledge with my friends, who don’t have the patience to read lengthy articles.

That is why I decided to create this site, to help people. People like you who are looking for an easily applicable information regarding diet and training. To do this, I am going to share methods I personally used in my transformation.

Now a bit about me…

I am currently 32 years old father and a husband. I work for an international software company, sitting all day in front of a computer screen. This definitely “helped” me to reach amazing state of un-fitness I was in three years ago.

My fitness journey started around September 2013, when I was 82 kg (180 lbs) at height of 161 cm (5 ft 3.4 in), probably around 40 % body fat. I didn’t realize it then but I was really fat and not very healthy. I started browsing on-line and found overwhelming information about how to get fit.

I started slowly implementing what I learned, keeping things that worked for me and tossing what didn’t. After a while of testing “magic” started to happen. At the beginning I wasn’t able to do even one pull-up. After a month I was 3 kilograms (6.6 lbs) lighter and able to do two full pull-ups. At this time a was doing only bodyweight training and I decided I want more and I bought my first bench, barbell and weights.

Me before and now:)

Fast forward to August 2015 and I was 61,5 kg (135 lbs) at around 14 % body fat and feeling so much healthier. So in under two years I have lost more than 20 kilograms (44 lbs) of fat and built a bit of muscle. I agree it’s not the fastest transformation in the world but I did it all by myself:) If I knew then what I know now I think I could achieve these results a bit faster.

Currently I’m focusing more on gaining strength rather than building muscle. It just motivates me more to train to add another 2,5 kg (5 lbs) to the bar.

I hope you find information on the site helpful and if you ever need any feedback or support regarding your diet or training just leave the comment under the relevant article or send me an email.

All the best,

Marek
