Timea’s Background in Fitness

Timea Trajtelova’s beginnings in fitness date back to when she was 16 years old. A sporty child in her youth, Timea began leaning towards weightlifting as she became older.

At first, this was only a hobby for Timea and her friends, who went together to the gym every day. They would practice different exercises ranging from CrossFit, functional training, high-intensity training, to circuit workouts.

Over time, Timea decided to stick only to regular weight training in the gym, as it brought her the best results.

Bikini Contest Preparations

Throughout the months, Timea continued working hard on her figure. This was noticed by her close friends, who suggested her to give bikini competitions a try.

Liking the idea of competing, Timea went on to find herself a personal trainer. The trainer helped Timea structure her training and meal plan accordingly to her goals for the contest, as well as helping her with posing practice.

Fitness Bikini Athlete of the Year

Eventually, the show day came and Timea stepped on stage at the Victoria Natural Cup. She came in a high 2nd place at the competition.

From there, things only became better for Timea. By the end of her first year of competing, she earned four different accolades – including the SANK athlete of the year 2013 in the Fitness Bikini category.

The following year, Timea stormed the IFBB stages across Europe to win an astonishing seven consecutive bikini titles. Some of these included the 2014 Hungarian International Championships in Tatabanya, 2014 Slovak National Championships, and the INBA World Championships.

By 2017, Timea became a 2-time IFBB World Champion in Bikini, as well as a renowned fitness model and online coach.

Training for Competition

When training for a contest, Timea will have four weight training sessions, alongside four cardio sessions a week.

During this period, Timea’s aim is to make the most out of her workouts in the shortest space of time possible. One of the ways she achieves this is by doing full-body workouts.

As Timea says, working on her whole body doesn’t only save her time. It also works to decrease the chance of her losing muscle during contest prep, as doing long workouts can be detrimental to her muscle mass when on a caloric deficit.

Favorite Body Parts

Timea’s favorite body parts are her legs and shoulders. She says legs are one of her favorites, because she feels they are one of the most challenging body parts to train.

As for shoulders, Timea likes the feeling she achieves when doing exercises such as lateral raises and the shoulder press.

Ab Workouts for a Lean Midsection

Although Timea recognizes the importance of working her abs for a strong and tight midsection. She also says how it’s important to acknowledge that abs won’t ‘magically’ appear from training alone.

According to Timea, if she wants to have ripped abs. It all comes down to what and how much she eats.

Timea’s diet plan is straightforward. She sticks to eating five times per day, making sure her meals consist of all the essential macronutrients.

Some of the foods she’ll eat regardless of whether she’s competing or not include;

  • Fish
  • Chicken
  • Wholegrain Pasta
  • Rice
  • Oatmeal
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Nuts

Timea Trajtelova’s Take on Supplements

As most athletes, Timea keeps her supplementation stack simple and effective; sticking to proteins, BCAAs, and vitamins.

These supplements, combined with a nutrient-dense diet, ensure that Timea gets everything her body needs to build muscle and stay lean.

Her ‘go-to cheat meals’ are pizza, cheeseburger, and pancakes.
