When Rodion Pluhatarenko came back from the ATO area, he opened the first CrossFit gym in his native Kamianets-Podilskyi town. Along with his wife, Rodion attracted sponsors, leased a building and equipped it with his own hands.
He served as a reconnaissance man in the ATO area. That is where he realized that physical endurance and ability to quickly mobilize body resources could save a soldier’s life. Rodion took an interest in CrossFit after demobilization and now he calls it a practical sport because the skills received during training are useful in day-to-day life –while doing work, at home, for health improvement of the body.
Thanks to his efforts, the town’s inhabitants have an opportunity to lead active and healthy lifestyles.
