United States Strongman: The Leader in the
Sport of Strongman

Since its inception in 2014, USS has proven its dedication to the growth of strongman and strongwomen. With the leadership of our state reps and promoters we are second to none in our development of promoters and athletes. We have proven that we will work with everyone to put on the biggest and highest quality contests, which provides opportunities, for you - the athletes. We have made it affordable for athlete's and promoters to participate in the sport they love. 


                                                                                                                           Good luck, train smart, and travel safe!

                                                                                                                         - Willie Wessels, President, United States Strongman, Inc.
