I have done strongman since 2015.  My twin brother and I tried strongman with Jean-François Caron for fun and fell in love with the sport.

I train at Santé X-trem gym in Quebec.  My coach is Jean-François Caron, also from Quebec.  I am a welder for work.  I have a twin brother, Frédérick Rhéaume, who also does strongman.
