She got a bronze medal at Bikini Fitness Polish National Championships… competing in this category for the first time ever ! Slowly she is getting to the top, recently competed  at the European Cup together with the current World Fitness Bikini Champion, Hanna Garboś. Until recently, Hania was her biggest role model, now they are competing together on the same level. Beautiful and sexy, she used to be a model, but chosed to continue her passion- sport- on the highest level possible! I am presenting an interview with MARTA HORDYJEWSKA, crossfit specialist, personal coach and bikini fitness competitor…



1. Basic question. How did you start your athletic career? tell me your journey…

My life was always connected to sport. I was very lucky, because when I was 6 years old my parents signed me to the sports club called „Lublinianka”, where for many years I practiced swimming. This club created for all of the team a special class in school. This allowed us to train every day. And this experience teached me the discipline. From an early age I developed inside of me kind of „addiction” to the sport. Throughout my whole life I tried multiple sports disciplines. And now I cannot immagine life without sport.

My recent love is a crossfit. I joined the club called „The Box Crossfit Śródmieście” in Warsaw. One day with the team we decided to  promote the club and the crossfit discipline in general by taking part in FITLOOK. We wanted to prove that not only hours in the gym guarantee fit looking body. By taking part in FITLOOK I started my journey with bodybuilding and bikini fitness competitions.

Under his wings took me my long-term friend Arek Michalik. Together we started preparation to competitions and we collaborate ever since :) I felt in love in bodybuilding. Currently I am continuing my workouts, I am preparing for next competitions, I am constantly widening my knowledge and willingly share this knowledge with other competitors and people who want to begin their healthy life journey   .

 2. How do you prepare for competitions ?

Currently I am on the strenght training plus aerobic endurance training. And of course significant is diet, diet and diet :)

 3. Are you on a constant diet then? Or maybe you have some periods in the season while you allow yourself for some less healthy food?

I am not doing a classic „mass-reduction” diet. I am keeping in a good shape for the whole year ( do not confuse this with my pick-season shape). I am just feeling better with myself this way, I could never be on the classic mass diet. Only 2 months before competitions my diet becomes more strict as this is significant for my body shape.

4.  Nowadays, in media, we can see BOOM for different kinds of diet…those more healthy and those not healthy at all. As a specialist, what would you suggest for a person who wants to start dieting, living healthier lifestyle?

Diet has to be created individually as we are all different entities. The best way is to find an experienced coach/ dietician. He should be fully professional (those obesed dieticians or coaches out of shape – well, think about it :P ) There is NO „miracle diet” ideal and identical for everyone.

 5. Also recently, especially among celebrities, popular are freshly made fruit/ vegetable juices. Are you including those in your meal plan?

I do not drink juices. I am just drinking few litres of water daily. I am avoiding fruits as they contain a lot of needless sugar, whereas vegetables I prefer simply crude :)


6.  How looks like your tipical day?

I have a full-time job in a marketing agency, so my day is like: work 9-17, practice and home :) In the evenings I am trying to catch up on my social life, do some typical household duties or just lie down and be lazy. On weekends I have my hardest workouts, cheat day (I started just this month) and all other additional cultural activities. At the end if we have less time we literally have it more.

7. How do you keep up such a hard regime? what helps you?

Conversations with my closest friends. Because of my full time job, hard workouts and psychophysical stress ( at the end I am not indestructible) 2 months before competitions are for me very, very hard so talking with my best friends really helps. And sometimes I simply miss Snickers :)



8.  Also, how do you find motivation to train harder and harder every day? What is your way to keep the motivation at all times?

I have the motivation inside of me. I cannot explain that though….. simply I was born that way. I just know that if I won’t find the motivation inside of me nothing will helps. Even my coach knows that during my hard times I like to complain, but at the end, the next day I will do two times harder workout. When I have some hard times I am looking on photos of the best competitors in the world or even photos of my coach and friends… after that I usually feel the adrenaline and willingness to train harder :)


9. And what would you suggest for a person who does not have such high motivation but would like to find and keep it?

I would suggest to find a good motivator. I am aware of the fact that not everyone has the same internal strenght as I do. Inspiration by other people is really helpful. I often repeat that every one of us starts from zero, and no one is the champion straight away, so we need to move forward, in the way we are satisfied with ourselves. It is also very important to have balance/ rational approach to the subject- I am competing on a professional level so I am kinda extreme case, but I would strongly suggest for everyone simply healthy and active lifestyle.

10. I read some of your interviews and in one of them you said that „if a woman wants to take part in bodybuilding competitions she should have „commonsensical attitude to the subject”. What does that mean?

Firstly, health is the most important aspect. Pushing your body to the limits just to take part in competition is not a good solution.  Furthermore your life balance. You cannot constantly dieting and working out, it cannot become all of your life because firstly, you will become INTOLERABLE for friends, and secondly at the end you will stay alone……. I am not wishing this to anyone! You just need to know when to say STOP…

11. Let’s speak now about THE beauty. What kind of cosmetics are you using on a daily basis?

I am addicted to sweet-smelled cosmetics.When a body lotion, peeling, cream or perfums smell like vanilla, candy-floss, cinnamon or chocolate…I am in heaven :) I am also using highly moisturizing cream and colorful cosmetics as I adore feeling feminine.


12. Are you paying a lot of attention to take care of your hair and skin then?

I have very dry skin so moisturizing, moisturizing and again moisturizing :)


13. What is your total MUST HAVE?

I am addicted to all kind of lip balms, body lotions and hand creams. The prettier smell the better :) I love to test new things. For example I love „Pink Sugar”, Aquolina water, pheromone body lotions like gingery, cinnamon, pina colada….. My total Must Have though is Hypnotic Poison by Dior- very strong and sweet feminine smell.

14. Are you interested in fashion?

As every woman does :)


15. So what is your preffered style?

And here we have a „dissonance” between how I prefer to dress, and how it is in a real life because of the comfort. My wardrobe is full of sport clothes and I guess you can see me most often in a casual look. Though… I like to put on my high heels sometimes and feel like a bombshell :)

16. What kind of clothing stores are your favorite ones?

I have my favorite designers but because of financial limits I end up buying in popular local stores.


17.  5 things you cannot live without.

Things- so I wont say my family, art, sport…… so i would say my music player, a cup of coffee, bottle of water, my phone, credit card :) But honestly, I am not quite addicted to any personal belongings.


 18. And your plans for next months?

Currently I am still resting, and from february I am starting my preparations to Polish Championships. I have also few private plans but everything is not clear yet :)

1. Basic question, how did you start your journey with photography?

2. What gear are you working on

I am working on Canon 5d mark II



3. Did you take part in any courses for photography? Maybe you finished a special school?

6. So what means beauty for you?

I think everyone has different taste. But for me there are 2 aspects of beauty: 1st is „visual beauty” – something which perception makes pleasure ( and I do it by photography ) ….and 2nd is our „internal beauty” – something which we all should have in our hearts.


6. You are very young BUT already successful. Do you remember IT moment when you started receiving more serious projects?

Not everyone is aware of that, but photography is a very hard job! I didn’t think about being the best but to give everything best of me every single day. The success came alone :)

7. What was the moment after you decided that you want to start doing photography professionally?

The moment when my clients were really satisfied from my work so they came back again :) this gives me a real motivation!

8. Best advice you have ever been given…

” Who does not rist does not drink champagne”


9. This is one of my favourite quotes as well! Anyways, I saw on your website that you travel a lot. You were working in many places in the world. Which city you liked the most, where would you like to come back again?

Definitely Mialmi and New York. I will come back there ..not only once :)

10. And how is it to be a photographer in Poland? Is it hard to live from the salary :) ?

No no …I don’t complain :) I am working in Warsaw and so far I am satisfied


11. So I bet you want to stay here in Poland or would you like to move out to another country for working?

I have many projects in London, but at the moment I do not think about moving out from Poland…

14. You are working with famous and non famous clients. How would you compare those two?

Well, for me there is no difference at all between famous and non famous clients. I treat everyone on the same conditions!

15. Your name is Izabela. Why Kitana Beker then?

I really value my privacy  that’s why I always use my artistic nickname- Kitana Beker
