It’s one larger than life celebrity strong-arming kids into some important life lessons. We got a chance to meet up with a man that makes most of us look pretty puny. Bill Kazmaier won the World’s Strongest Man title three times in a row. Now he travels around to local YMCA’s teaching kids to focus, work hard, and dream big. Kazmaier actually started his own training at a YMCA. He says he used his focus and drive to help make his own dreams come true.
Kazmaier says, “I blocked out everything else and I focused on that one thing and I put a ton of energy into it everyday for about two or three years and I finally became the strongest man in the world.”
The event is happening at the Pennington YMCA this Saturday from 1 to 4. Kids will get a chance to see Kazmaier pull a bus and other feats.
