Biography edit

Volotovsky's father is a forest warden and his mother is a kindergarten teacher. Yuriy was a skinny kid and hoping to overcome his defects one day he decided to go for sport.

He started with running, ice hockey, skiing, and martial arts but when he got into a gym for the first time he quickly realized that was exactly what he was looking for. In 2000 he graduated from school and entered the National Technical University of Ukraine Kyiv Polytechnic Institute NTUU "KPI", faculty of physical education and sport, and specialized in powerlift coaching.

Being a student he was coached by Viktoria Posmitna, the strongest woman in Ukraine.[1] In 2005, graduated from the Institute. In 2007, Yuriy started his own gym named "Yuria" in his hometown of Shpitky.

Thanks to the steel he loved so much and the popularity of movies starring extremely fit actors, Yuriy developed a burning desire to work as an actor. In 2008 he took model and photo model classes in Models College ruled by the "Oleg & Eve" agency. The classes included studying acting technique.
