"What is Strongman?"

Strongman can best be described as a sport where athletes are required to pick up random heavy objects and maneuver them in some manner. It's like Crossfit, but much heavier. If you've seen giant men on TV lifting cars or giant boulders, that's Strongman. Dain competes in the lightest weight class (175 lbs), and does so on the World stage.

Dain's Recent Competition Results

"Why is Strongman important?"

In a vacuum, it's not important. With that being said, Dain loves this sport, wants to help it grow, and believes it's important to have such a passion. Furthermore, not only does Dain understand how to eat, move and live healthy as a non-athlete, but he also knows how to take things to the next level and prepare a body for battle. He understands what it takes to drop body fat while also understanding what has to be done in order to perform at an elite level. Dain's experience as an athlete gives him a perspective that enables him to help more people in more ways and that's exactly what he aspires to do.
