Strongman and personal trainer Craig Bongelli started his athletic career in martial arts and boxing but was drawn to weightlifting when he was 17 years old after meeting Scotland’s Strongest Man winner Jamie Barr at a highland games in Fergus, Ontario. “I knew I had found my calling and began training with weights immediately. Nearly five years later, strength training has become both my passion and my job.” In those five years, Craig has accomplished some remarkable feats of mass and strength that have fueled his success in strongman competitions. He’s even been invited to train at the renowned Westside Barbell in Grove City, Ohio. But it is Craig’s passion and experience that have produced some remarkable weight-loss stories and are what make him a valuable training coach. “I bring both the passion I have developed for weight training and all of the expertise I have gained working with some of the best lifters and coaches in the world to help my clients every day!” he says.
