Meet Josh

My name is Josh, I am a 35 year old father to a beautiful little girl, a Journeyman Welder and an Amateur Strongman Competitor living in Calgary, AB.

I have been actively competing in strongman as well as coaching strongman/woman for a few years now. I love everything about, not only the physical but the mental challenges you face in each training session and in each competition.

In 2020, I earned a second place finish at Alberta’s Strongest Man as well as set the Canadian Amateur Circus Dumbbell Record at 233.5 lbs! This year I hope to push myself and my athletes to not only conquer our goals but to have a BLAST doing it!

Favorite way to sweat

Heavy sandbag runs – nothing makes you sweat more than running full speed, as fast as you can with a 300lbs sandbag up on your chest.


Africa by ToTo because it’s pretty much the best song ever!!!! Truthfully, I tend to drown whatever is playing out because at competition we have no control over the music!!!

Place to visit or travel

I love going to BC, Vancouver Island specifically because that is where my daughter lives. Also, I love going to the Arnold in Columbus, Ohio!

Extra Motivation

Well I have always been self-motivated when it comes to the gym. I started strongman a few years ago and every day I get to challenge myself in ways I never thought I could. That and hearing my daughter brag about how strong her daddy is is pretty awesome as well!
