Irena Michalcik was born and raised in the Czech Republic. As an infant, she was diagnosed with hip dysplasia and her doctor recommended that she not play sports. This didn’t stop her from dreaming of becoming an athlete—though life in a small town didn’t provide any opportunities to take part in competitive sports. After moving to the U.S., Irena started working out. Despite facing medical setbacks, big life changes, and hardship, she persevered and signed up for her first Spartan Race in 2014. After that first race, she decided to start training to see how far she could go and qualified to compete at the inaugural OCR World Championships in 2014. Irena has since competed in four consecutive OCR World Championships (2014-2017), three consecutive Spartan World Championships (2015-2017), the Spartan European Championship (2018), North American OCR Championship (2018), and is qualified for the Spartan World Championship and OCR World Championship in 2018. She has podium finishes from races in Slovakia, Greece, Hawaii, and throughout the Continental U.S. 

“I believe that it is never too late to make your dreams come true or to take charge of your life and lifestyle. I went from having multiple health problems in my late 20s to being the healthiest, strongest, and fastest I’ve ever been in my mid-30s. doTERRA has been part of my healthy lifestyle journey since 2014, when I was first introduced to essential oils. Now I use doTERRA products in my everyday life, to enhance my performance and aid recovery after workouts and races. Some of my favorite products are the Athlete’s Kit (I use it daily), all Deep Blue® products, doTERRA On Guard®, Lemon and Lemongrass, doTERRA Cheer® blend, and the doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack® combined with DDR Prime® and Mito2Max®.”
