Hi, my name is Aleksey Torokhtiy.
I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself – thus, you’ll have more information for your art.
I’m 30 years old. II was born and grew up in Ukraine. At the age of 14, I started to go in for sports (Olympic weightlifting). When I was 16 - I was invited to the Ukrainian national team to participate in international competitions. Later there was a ton of trainings, which was diluted with a plenty of competitions.
In the period from 16 to 22 years, the most important period of my formation as an athlete - as during this period I had more defeats than victories.
At the age of 22, I went to my first Olympic Games in 2008 and was 11th.
Analyzing my way now - I can say with 100% confidence that these defeats have forced me to work harder and rethink my mistakes, maybe that is what helped me to win a gold medal
at the Olympic Games in London, in 2012. FAMILY: spouse – Daria, son – Myron.
First – technical, I’ve graduated from the National aviation university.
Second – sports, I‘ve graduated from the National university of education and sports.
2013 – 2015 – a year after the Olympic Games, I was invited to work in the Weightlifting Federation of Ukraine, we have done a lot of Innovations where for two years which work for the development of sports in the country.
2014 – Got the title of the judge of the international category
2015 – Became a member of International Weightlifting Federation.
Since 2015 I have been working on my projects, the first and the foremost purpose of
which is to introduce the world of Olympic weightlifting to people and give them the right information for their training in this sports. All this is done on the basis of information and experience which I have accumulated over 16 years of training daily in this difficult, but nevertheless very interesting sport. Educational information is basically placed on a YouTube channel, the rest of social media are usually used to communicate with people who are interested in this topic. In addition to this work I hold seminars and camps around the world with a more “deep” program and a personal approach to each athlete. At my seminars, I try to teach people...first of all...to hear, understand and be able to control own body.
Each of us has a huge energy ... but not everyone knows how to control it!!!
We have learned how to make engines that stall in the lights and forms, thus, extending the cruising range and power at the right time ... it's time to learn how to accumulate our own energy for the right moment!!!
All these are added up into a slogan of four words: Project: WARM BODY | COLD MIND
WARM BODY | COLD MIND – a registered trademark of the four categories: • clothing;
• sports equipment;
• sports nutrition;
• organization of events.
Men - 89%
18 - 24 years - 25%
25 - 34 years - 41%
35 - 44 years - 15%
I imagine my target audience as: 24-35 years old people (mature), who started following the trend of Olympic weightlifting, which is connected with development of Olympic weightlifting and popularization of Crossfit, and found themselves in Olympic weightlifting. Because a training in Olympic weightlifting is not only about lifting heavy weights, but first of all - it's the work with own head, mind, and control of emotions. Thus, it is considered to be a LIFESTYLE (Warm Body Cold Mind), which coerces to use own energy in a more rational way during the training, and above all - in LIFE.
