Igor Gunko (July 12, 1989), a professional mixed martial arts fighter.

I was born in Vinnytsia, Ukraine.

Then I moved to Dnipropetrovsk, where I attended kindergarten.  I finished the first grade of school in my hometown Vinnytsia. After that, I moved to Dnipropetrovsk again. I have lived there for 7 years. In the 9th grade, I returned to Vinnytsia, where I entered the school after completing military service in the army of the 95th Airborne Brigade.  After demobilisation, I got into the Ternopil Academy with a degree in accounting. Then I got another tertiary education, but at the University of Physical Culture and Sports (major – sports psychology).

 “From a young age to the present day, I do various types of martial arts and follow a healthy and active lifestyle.  With the help of a balanced sports diet, I have achieved great success in the professional sports field. After so many fights and sports, I need to nourish and provide the body with high quality vitamins and supplements to restore and maintain physical shape.

During my sports career, I have tried many sports nutrition products from different manufacturers.  I can safely say that Progress Nutrition is exactly the brand that belongs to the category “price-quality”.  I was pleasantly surprised by the palette of flavors and the efficiency of the product.

I recommend it!  And, an advice from person who has spent many years in sports – do not to listen to anyone who says that sports nutrition is chemistry or something like that.  This is said by unsuccessful people who did not want, or could not achieve anything in sports. And as statistics show, such people did not spend a day on physical activity.

Be healthy and happy, my friends!  And most importantly live an active life!!! “
