Career

Powerlifter

Vladimir got access to the internet at the age of 14 and started watching videos of American bodybuilders and bloggers. At that time, he felt life was not worth spending on a farm tending cows and livestock so he decided to become a blogger. Inspired by the American bodybuilders, he decided to take the same course but there was no gym in Kryshtopivka so he created his own gym by improvising the parts of Soviet-era tractors, wood, and bricks, and called it Golds Gym Kryshtopivka.
