Konstantinos Gkelaouzos

 

Compex: Hi there, Konstantinos! Let our readers know a little bit about yourself...

Konstantinos: Hello, my name is Konstantinos Gkelaouzos. I was born in Greece, in a small town called Amfissa. Now I live in Athens. I am a marathon elite athlete, member of Panathinaikos Club, and a proud affiliated athlete of the Compex Greece Team.

Compex: What sport do you do and how did you get into it?

Konstantinos: I started my career in running back in 2002. I was training and competing in short distances. After 14 years of track & field activity, I have managed to win a podium place in many races , and earn lots of achievements ( distances: 3000m to 10.000m).

On 2016 I decided to run my first Classic Marathon Race. ( 42.195m)

During the last 3 years, I have won the National Championship 3 times back to back, and I have conquered the first place, in one of the most difficult races in the world, the Athens Authentic Marathon. This year my personal record was 2:19:02, leading me to the podium and the 1st place among the Greek athletes.

Compex: How does Compex Muscle Stim help you to find a competitive edge?

Konstantinos: My training programing is very demanding and Compex has changed my daily life. I use it to warm up my legs before training. It saves my time and I feel safe regarding any potential injuries.
Endurance and Strength programs are vital for my legs performance, plus my core stabilization. I use the recovery programs between my trainings in order to reduce muscle fatigue and be able to have quality training.

Compex: Which program/s do you use?

Konstantinos: I use for my legs certain Conditioning programs such as Endurance and Explosive Strength, which are boosting my performance.
Regarding my Recovery, I always use ‘Competition Recovery’ and ‘Reduce Muscle Soreness’ after my training. ‘Pain Management Tens’ and ‘Muscle Pain’ are also super useful to deal with inevitable various injuries that may occur. ‘Cramp Prevention’ helps me with the long runs. Warm Up programs are also on my favorites menu.
