Who’s Who at Heavy Events

Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory. William Barclay

Competitors in Heavy events know that William Barclay had it right. Many people look at the competitors and shake their heads, thinking that heavy events competitors are absolutely insane. After all, these men and women choose to push their muscles past the breaking point by lifting and throwing some of the heaviest objects imaginable.

Professional heavy events competitors are known for pushing themselves further and harder. Don’t misunderstand us, they know how to have fun too. But when it comes to strength, there is no one comparable.

Our professional heavy events competitors for 2015 come from all across Western Canada and the Western United States. They bring years of experience and are some of the best in North America.
