state chair, paul mouser

Paul Mouser picked up his first set of farmers handles in the late 90’s and for some reason kept doing it. Paul fell in love with promoting competitions in 2007 and went on a 14-year run where he eventually ran a double digit number of competitions per year for several years before stepping away from being a contest director in 2020. Paul has been the WV State Chairperson for Strongman Corporation since 2013, and currently serves as the on-floor announcer at many of the major Strongman Corporation events. Mouser believes that strongman at its best should paint a total picture of strength, and at the professional level should be entertaining to the viewer.

“What I love about Strongman Corporation the most is the staff, because I really do like all these crazy people. As a company, what I love the most is the dedication to fair competition. There are no special invitations; there is no favorable treatment to people with a level of fame; you either qualify fair and square or you don’t. Our systems for advancement in the US are as cut and dry as they could possibly be.” 

 

floater chair, dave waters


Born in 1983, David “Dave” Waters is a Nevada-born, Kentucky-raised former strongman competitor.  He developed a love for strongman while stationed in Kyrgyzstan during his time in the U.S. Air Force.  He competed regularly from 2004 to 2013, mainly overseas; even traveling to Iceland after 12 years in the military to successfully lift the Húsafell Stone in 2019.

 

He acquired his first bachelor’s degree from Bryan University in Health and Fitness and a second bachelor’s in Transportation and Logistics from the American Military University, both of which he applies towards competitive strongman events to this day. 

With Strongman Corporation since 2008, Dave (and his service dog, Ava) are familiar faces at the Arnold Sports Festival, Olympia, Nationals, Masters Nationals, America’s Strongest Man, America’s Strongest Woman, and most major strongman competitive events.  He was named State Chair for several countries overseas, Washington, D.C. and Kentucky, and lastly became a National Representative for Strongman Corporation in 2017 in which he takes care of many of the logistics at the events. 

During his free time, Dave raises goats and cows on his small ranch in Glasgow, Kentucky and is very, SUPER happily married with two stepdaughters, six dogs and a parrot.

 

Mission

Our goal is to provide quality Strongman competitions for the public while ensuring equal treatment for the competitors. We do all that we can to make sure our athletes have plenty of opportunities to use their memberships by regularly updating them with a list of current competitions.

Vision

We are committed to being the leading Strongman sanctioned group by setting the bar for our competitors as well as promoting sanctioned Strongman contests.

Values

We will always honor our promise to provide members with reliable and genuine information on our latest competitions
