Since 2017, I have been a member of the IFBB Federation in the Master Men’s Physique category.
In my category, I won the following:
2nd place – Oslo Grand Prix
6th place – Malta Diamond Cup
10th place – European Championship in Santa Susanna.
My adventure with bodybuilding began quite late. At the age of 37, I joined a gym and step by step, under the supervision of trainers, I began to learn this sport and to build my body. I cannot imagine my life without physical activity now. I am continually looking for new challenges, which is why, apart from preparations for the start-up season at Men’s Physique, I get to know the callisthenics.I always give importance to what I wear. I like being well-dressed whether I am in the gym, at work or when I am not doing anything special. Fashion is fun, and I treat it that way.
The style that suits me best and which emphasises my individuality is the Italian style.
A well-fitting jacket with vivid shades (not always referring to the classics), a tight waistline shirt, made of very high-quality fabric, white trousers and moccasins. Accessories: good brand watch, bracelet, pocket square or scarf – constitute a perfect outfit for me. My life is a continuous journey. I travel a lot in connection with my job, professions or when I feel like it. I am lucky – I have visited 37 countries, and there are still many places to discover.
Our readers would love to get to know you more Darek. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you, your brand or the services you offer?
I'm a very positive person; I love my life. My life motto - is never too late to change your life.
Darek, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passion: sport and travelling. Aspiration? Difficult question:) I have achieved a lot in my life: family, company, happiness, medals. I still have a lot to do in my life, I know about it. Now I want to motivate people with my shape and my look. I'm 43. I feel fantastic, and I look OK:) I suppose:) My first photo session was for Rado Swiss Watches.
Who is your inspiration in life Darek? How do you stay inspired as Model?
Life is the best inspiration for me. Gentleman, class and style
We all make mistakes Darek; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
I was workaholic. I didn't have time for my family, friends, sport - for myself. I regret it now, but I changed my life.
Darek, How do you describe yourself regarding working with clients?
Please tell us Darek, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?
I'm well organised, I have to be running a company, having a family and being an athlete who is preparing for a competition. I have friends, and I remember them.
Darek, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
In my job (advertising) I must often talk to clients and convince them to change their mind. Working with artists, it is more difficult; they have own vision - I'm talking about the project.
Darek, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model.
I'm learning to model all the time. I can't boast of it yet
Darek, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or challenging about it?
Last photo session - Project Human. Emotional session about depression and psychological problems. Exciting - place of the session - abandoned psychiatric hospital.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?*
patience, humility, being yourself
