From USSR to Canada

I  was born to a typical soviet family. My mother worked at a secret factory producing electronic military equipment, and my father was an undercover KGB operative. Just kidding, my father is a carpenter.

Early days 

I started Gymnastics as a kid, but switched to competitive powerlifting at the age of 17 and moved to bodybuilding five years later. By 25 I found myself utterly frustrated with my physique.

I developed sever lower back pain after years of heavy lifting and completions. My gymnastics skills, strength, and flexibility were all gone.

I was like an old tree, tight and immobile, though, massive and strong. Then I realized that I would rather be smaller, but able to move and bend freely, like a young tree.

Back to my roots

 I turned back to Gymnastics. It was one of the best decisions in my life. I am now 42 years old and my gymnastics skills, strength, stamina, flexibility, mobility, coordination, and balance are back.  I can do interesting - one might say impressive - things with my body, and my lower back problems are gone. I feel confident, strong, agile, and look forward to every training session, because Gymnastics is fun.  I also developed a gymnastics based training approach to help you achieve the same, because if I could do this, so can you!
