“Weight training and bodybuilding was what I felt I was made for! I had always been a big fan of strength training when I was younger”


Young Years

Born in Budapest, the capital of Hungary, Robin had always been active, enjoying cycling as a young boy. But because of the activity, his lower body bulked up far more than his upper body did.

He quickly grew dissatisfied with the way he looked and desired a more balanced build. 2009 saw Robin, then 16 years old, start weightlifting in the gym to build the body of his dreams.

Exercise Journey

Thanks to his exceptional genetics, Robin advanced swiftly and significantly. He had a fantastic body and was prepared to compete by the time he was 19 years old, in 2012.

At his first competition of the year, the 2012 Hungary World Championships, Robin took the stage. It’s impressive that he won his first show.

However, he had only just begun.

“My passion and desire to excel in this sport suddenly erupted”

Card Pro

The 2012 Arnold Classic Europe was Robin’s second tournament, which he entered right away. Even though this competition was far bigger than his last one, he still came in second.

In his third show of the year, Robin finished in the top 3, however, his best performance was in his second competition. The youngster brought home the IFBB Junior European Championship trophy at the beginning of 2013.

He had won, but he had also received his Pro Card. Robin achieved his goal of becoming a professional bodybuilder at the age of 20.

He not only achieved his objective but also made history by becoming the first Men’s Physique Pro competitor in Europe.

A Professional Bodybuilder’s Life

Robin participated in five more competitions over the following three years, going up against sportsmen like Jeff Seid and Artemus Dolgin.

He finished second in the San Marino Pro in 2015, earning him entry into the renowned Mr. Olympia contest in 2016.

Even though he lost, Robin still learned a lot that would benefit him in future competitions.

“I favor traditional cardio over HIIT. I exercise on the treadmill for 30 minutes each morning and evening.”


In contrast to other bodybuilders, Robin Balogh only works out four times a week, giving himself the weekends off.

He enjoys working out several muscle groups at once, except his legs and back. Robin does high reps (10–12) in sets of three or four.

He runs for 30 minutes twice a day for cardio to keep his heart in good shape and to burn some extra calories.
