On her own, Anna Lewandowska is already badass enough. She’s a multiple karate medalist on both national and international levels, a nutrition specialist and fitness expert, author, CEO, and mother. On top of that, she’s married to Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski – also a badass in his own right!
Anna’s achievements are certainly impressive. We thought to put her story in one place and thus, this feature was born! So let’s find out more about Anna Lewandowska.
Who is Anna Lewandowska?
Anna Lewandowska (nee Stachurska) was born on September 7, 1988 (currently 30 years old at the time of this writing) in Łódź, Poland. When she was just 10 years old, she began her training in karate. According to her blog, she began to love it and training soon became a part of her everyday life. The sport became so ingrained in her life, in fact, that she attended the Academy of Physical Education in Warsaw for her studies in Physical Education. Currently, she is a holder of 2 Master’s degrees.
After graduating in 2012, Anna went on to become a member of the Pruszkow Karate Club. Fakt24 reported that she won her first medial in 2008 and continued to bag many more over the course of her karate career. In total, she has 38 medals across the Polish, European, and World Championships. That is a lot of medals for one person to have.
Though she was able to balance her karate and other endeavors for a while, she did eventually give up her karate career to focus on her other entrepreneurial ventures. At this point, she was a Personal Trainer and Nutritionist. In 2010, she established “Healthy Plan by Ann”, a health and fitness blog that provides diet and exercise programs, recipes, and tips to stay healthy. Now, the blog has manifested into a full-blown mobile application!
Under the Healthy Plan by Ann (HPBA) name, she has a whole team of licensed trainers, nutritionists, and specialists to help those around the world who are looking to get themselves fit and in shape. Check out the team here!
Apart from that, she has authored 4 books, one of which was also published in the German market. She has also released 4 different workout DVDs, with one of them focusing on how pregnant moms can remain fit and healthy.
Anna’s last – but certainly not least – accomplishment is her being the President of the Special Olympics Poland. Both she and her husband actively organize and support training and sports initiatives for people with intellectual disabilities.
More about the HPBA
Branching out from HPBA, Anna has also established several other venues in line with the fitness and nutrition industry. These include Diet & Training by Ann, Foods by Ann, Baby by Ann, and Healthy Center by Ann.
Diet & Training by Ann is the official name of the mobile application that’s available on both Android and iOS platforms. The monthly subscription plan is set at around $20 a month, which isn’t a steep price for a healthy mind and body.
Foods by Ann started in 2015 answers what she found was a gap in healthy diet foods in the Polish market. According to an interview with Business Insider, this started when her husband Robert would bring the meals she prepared for him to his games and training. Pretty soon, his teammates were asking for some, too! All their food products have no added sugar and are both gluten- and lactose-free.
Baby by Ann started sometimes in 2018, in partnership with Anna’s good friend, Ewa. Both are new mothers and thought that mothers needed one brand that would answer all the pressing questions and needs of mother’s anywhere. Their products include clothes, cutlery, dinner sets, toys, and more! They also have a dedicated blog with multiple guest writers who give tips for raising young children.
Healthy Center by Ann is focused on both expectant and new mothers. They have special training programs designed by their coaches and trainers. If you check out their Instagram page, they have shots in their classes with mom’s working out with their young babies! Pretty cool, if you ask me.
Anna and Robert Lewandowski have been married for almost 6 years. It’s not really known how exactly they met. What we do know, however, is that their relationship is coming up on 12 years as of 2019. They met and began dating in 2007 while they were both just 18 years old. Back then, Anna was just starting with her college education and Robert was with Znicz Pruszków, a football club based out of Pruszków, Poland.
5 years later in 2012, Anna was a household name in karate circles and a successful businesswoman, and Robert was playing for Bundesliga bigwig Borussia Dortmund. That was when Robert decided to propose. A year later. In June 2013, they tied the knot in Serock, a lake town north of Warsaw. Their pregnancy announcement came in December 2016, and little Klara Lewandowska was born in May 2017.
Robert now plays for Bayern Munich and is also the captain of the Polish national team. Anna continues to be a badass CEO across all of her ventures. Now that’s a power couple if I ever saw one!
