Hey, my name is Ire and originally I am from Slovenia. I have studied Exercise Science in New York (Manhattan College). Currently, I work as a Personal Trainer in Stockholm, Sweden.
Firstly, I just want to thank everybody for checking out my site and reading my content about gaining muscles.
When I was 16 years old, I have beginning to care about my appearance. During those time, my friends have given me a nickname “Skinny Tall Guy”. Being 6’7 (203 cm) and 175lbs (79kg) that was right on the money. However, I fucking hated being called that. Every time they called me that, I wanted to rip out their guts out. Little did I know at the time, that nickname was actually my greatest blessing.
I HATED IT SO MUCH I DECIDED TO SHUT THEM OFF.
About a year later I was sitting at 220lbs (100kg) and I also joined local Track and Field club. Suddenly, I was a discus thrower. My size helped me achieve great results quickly. After a two years of developing a skill of throwing the discus, I have received an athletics scholarship at Division 1 school (Manhattan College, New York). My passion for exercise remained, therefore I decided to study Exercise Science. Devoting 9 practices a week to my craft has later yielded in being rewarded for NCAA Honorable Mention Team (22nd place in NCAA, D1).
Throughout the years, I have gotten much stronger and bigger. Now I weight about 260 lbs (118 kg) and I can honestly say that my “Hardgainer” days are over.
Through correct training and correct eating habits, I managed to put on substantial amount of muscle mass, with keeping my body fat percentage low. I have tried many different foods, exercises style and I have done tons of research. With excessive amount of information out there, I wanted to create a site which is more specific for people like us. Becoming bigger and more muscular gave me a huge confidence boost when I was a teenager. It has led me from being a self-conscious teenager from Slovenia to a Division 1 Athlete in New York. I have since moved to Stockholm, where I am pursuing my passion of coaching other people through Personal Training.
Getting more muscular has not only given me the appearance I desired. I have become incredibly more confident and (finally) got myself a girlfriend.
I feel like it is my time to give back to the world. I want to help others who are in the similar situation I was in.
I am here to help you in any way I possibly can. Just reach out to me through contact page.
