Kristof Harnos


My name is Kristof Harnos I come from Csömör/Hungary. Csömör is a little village approximately 10 km form Budapest.

In 6. January 2014 I had a car accident. I was a passenger in the car, unfortunately I suffered the most serious injury. Fortunately, the other 2 passengers (including the driver) were fully recovered. In the accident a broken my spine, cause of the accident I have a full spinal rupture at the vertebra of the T-12 spine.

I managed to process the trauma in 6 months, after 9 months I started to training/bodybuilding. One year after the accident I took part in a bodybuilding competition where I finished first place in my category. The first place meant, I became World and European Champion. The love of this sport fulfills my whole life. My goal is to give my knowledge and experience to others who just starts or started before this beautiful sport. To achieve this – in 2017 I gained an Internationally renowned Personal Trainer Qualification. Until this I work as a personal trainer at Scitec Gold Fitness Club in Budapest.
