Exclusive Interview with Svetozar “Kika” Nikočević

Meet 59 year old bro Svetozar Nikocevic, nicknamed Kika. He is a gym owner in Podgorica, capital of Montenegro. Every morning he greets members of his gym with a brofist and a “Let’s f**king do this champion!” He once threatened to kill a member for leaving a massive shit in the gym toilet.

We decided to dive a little deeper and get some more info on this natural wonder of the world. Kika claims ownership to the unofficial record for the biggest arms in Europe, measuring in at 23.6 inches with a pump. A former footballer, he maintained a successful career playing for teams FC Titograd, Titeks, and Zabjelo. He started lifting when an injury he incurred 26 years ago left him unable to play soccer. It may have been the end of his footy career, but it sparked a love affair with the iron that burned like the molotov cocktails being thrown in the neighboring country of Kosovo. When he first started lifting, Kika proclaims, “I had such a will, I was waking up at 5 in the morning to lift. In three months I gained 20kg (44 lbs.) of muscle mass. People couldn’t believe it.” After a few years he opened his own gym “Santa Monica” on the outskirts of Podgorica.

At the time bodybuilding and powerlifting were relatively unknown in Montenegro, and Kika became somewhat of a local celebrity to the citizens of Zabjela.

Spot Me Bro: What is your favorite part of owning a gym?
