Biography

My beginnings with this sport were now in the ancient year of 1993. where I built my first weights out of concrete! I practiced multiple sports before body building – football, handball, basketball, archery and so on, but I always wanted to test my metal against weights. After a short time, an older friend of mine invited us down to his own gym where he had a real bench with weights that could be folded into a stand for doing squats – it was for me a whole new world – he knew how to do exercises, how to breathe, all the basics needed to train with weights and at that time I became extremely interested in the whole sport, wanting to learn as much as possible at the time(which wasn’t as easy as today with Internet, before one could not get a hold on information nor literature as easy as today!). In 1998. I connected with Žarko Stojić who asked me if I wanted to compete – in me was a burning desire to actually try it, so I said yes! At the time I

did not know anything really about preparation. Stojić taught me a lot about preparation and for that I am eternaly grateful! Then I realised how important was one-to-one work where knowledge was transfered from one man to another! My first contest ended in me being the vice-champion of Croatia. I was overwhelmed not only by the result but by my form which I had acquired (that was my original goal, to see if I could look like all those people in the magazines!)! In 1999. I met Miloš Sarčev with whom I spoke in Rimini on a body building fair. He gave me a couple of advices that looked simple, and even though I had read them before, coming from him, they took a whole different level, and I eventualy did put his advice to the test. I started to use the acquired knowledge and in the year 2000. I became the champion of Croatia! But as the knowledge expanded, I wanted to learn as much as I could about the sport, nutrition and exercises. In 2001. and 2002. I went regulary to Italy to consult with the famous body building coach Ricky Ramazzina. At his place I learned a whole lot more and another “level-up” was in store until this very day. In my advancement I was “a bit” hold

up by an illness that I was diagnosed with. Ulcerous colitis. I do not know a single contestent with this illness! All the people who knew me told me that the illness would end my career – even my sponsor at the time ended my contract immediately(even though I was an apsolute champion of Croatia!). Because ulcerous colitis is strictly connected with nutrition, I had to battle it out with the illness and take a firm grip of it! As things started to look better I even decided to continue competing if my body would allow me. In 2006. I was, again, a whole lot better than in 2005. I went out to win on Brod Open and not only won in my category but I came out as an absolute victor! A week after that I was third on the Mediterranium championship, and a week afteer that I won the contest in Sisak as a victor in my category an as the absolute victor of the event, proving that it CAN be done, DESPITE my condition and my illness! After that I decided to carry on… I am preparing and coaching a few of our male and female contestents who have had extremly good results in regional and international contests! See for yourself…
