Hi again! It’s been a little more than a week since we have featured an athlete, so here is our next one – Oleg Kabov!
Oleg is a passionate fitness maniac, in the good sense of the word, of course. He started with fitness and bodybuilding around 10 years ago and claims that what motivated him to start was to be more muscular and aesthetic, which we believe he managed to do very well throughout his fitness path.
When asked about the challenges he might have faced along the way, Oleg explained it was mostly to learn to eat and cook healthy, which is something we can all relate to. Besides that, he did not have to make any sacrifices along his journey. Although bodybuilding requires a lot of discipline and willpower, when you love what you do, these things shouldn’t seem like sacrifices.
Maybe the reason Oleg has managed to stay consistent for so long and make it look easy and fun to go to the gym is because he gets fulfilment from the results he sees. Having a clear vision of the outcome you’re working for and seeing it become real must feel satisfying. Also, his biggest goal is to be the best version of himself, which we believe is definitely an ongoing process and gives you continuous motivation, you can always do better, right?
This is what Oleg advises people who are just starting in this field as well, to be patient and dedicated. He claims that tracking the foods you eat by using an app like MyFitnessPal is a great tool to use if you want to see results. There are also hundreds of good web resources that can help you with your fitness journey, such as podcasts, videos and books, but you need to try out different things to see what fits you best.
Although Oleg enjoys a good session in the gym, he is extremely passionate about his healthy creations in the kitchen. He offers numerous high protein and nutritious desserts on his Instagram page that are super easy to make! Check out his Instagram page for the latest recipes @olegkabov. We look forward to the amazing new treats that are to be launched on his profile this year!
