I started in strongman randomly in 2004 without any training and equipment. I trained from that point to make my first World's Strongest Man in 2008 and finished 6th in the Qualifying Heat. 

I have a gym in Quebec City and also have a strongman gym at home where many pro athletes train. I coach many athletes in the last 5 years and I always try to give to Canadian athletes as many opportunities as possible.
