Eddie Hall, the world’s current Strongest Man, will host an evening at Scarborough Spa where he will talk through his journey to the prestigious title. Nicknamed ‘The Beast’ he became the first Brit to win the World’s Strongest Man competition since Gary Taylor in 1993.
He defeated Iceland’s Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson – best known as ‘The Mountain’ in Game of Thrones, as well as four-time winner Brian Shaw. Eddie will talk through his journey from a young rebellious child to his insane diet and training regime that includes 12,000 calories per day to maintain his 30 stone plus body and 4 hour gym sessions on Sunday 2 September.
Hall, who is also the current world record holder in the ‘deadlift’, recently released a documentary about his life on Netflix.
The evening is compered by former professional Rugby League player, now sports presenter, John Lebbon.
