PINNACLE STRONGMAN is an event that showcases the participants’ stamina, strength and mental toughness. Open to male and female competitors, it requires athletes to show almost superhuman abilities as they pull, push, lift, and carry heavy objects and implements. The competition also includes events such as deadlift and bench press.
The equipment used are unique to the sport of Strongman. Now that these equipment are available in the Middle East, strength sports are gaining following and participation from the ever growing sports and fitness population in the country.
Managed by our very own strength athlete, Marc Van Der Haer, the Strongman Competition is our trademark event that Pinnacle conducts periodically across the different Emirates.
Marc Van Der Haer is a South African Strongman who has been competing in national and international strongman and power-lifting competitions for more than 8 years.
The only professional-level Strongman athlete in the whole GCC, he is now based in Dubai, UAE, and provides training both to people who aspire to compete in strength sports and those who see the benefits of incorporating strongman training into their fitness routines
