Daniel Poniedziałek

Where does Daniel come from?

Daniel Poniedziałek is a personal trainer and a body builder. He works mainly in Bytom and Silesia. Although he is a young man born in 1994, he is already a titled contestant. Bodybuilding is his passion. He has already participated in a large number of competitions. Currently Daniel Poniedziałek has the tittle of World Champion and European Champion.

Important start-FBB

One of Daniel’s biggest challenges was IFBB European Championships. He was preparing for the performance with great commitment as the goal was not only to take the highest position but also to gain experience in the context of future competitions. The preparatory period was a demanding time – Daniel combined a full-time job as a personal trainer in one of Bytom’s gyms with his own training in Zabrze. Preparation required a lot of time and energy and good organization. When it comes to task management, Daniel is a perfectionist so organizing his schedule was not much of a problem. However, starting at the Spanish IFBB competition required „above-standard” funding, so HMS Fitness team was glad to support Daniel to comfortably complete the trip. In Santa Susanna it turned out that the competition is going to be very strong – the biggest rivals in addition to the Spaniards themselves (traditionally) turned out to be the Russian team – strong and numerous. For Daniel, standing up with the titled competitors was a new experience. There was stress and adrenaline – competing against players in their own country and competing with the best in Europe are two different things. Either way Daniel won gold in his category. All supporters at HMS, in Bytom and throughout Poland expressed their pride in Daniel, which is clearly seen on Daniel’s Facebook and Instagram.
