United Strongmen in Helsinki: Front and Center

“The idea of United Strongmen® actions is to build up knowledge of the classes we represent, so what would be a better way to build up knowledge than by taking up world level strongman/woman competitions to the middle of Finland’s capital, in the middle of pre-Christmas time,” Jyrki Rantanen told IronMind today.

“Fitnesstukku Power Week will take place in the heart of Helsinki in locations more central than ever seen before:

November 26
“4 PM - Qualifications for all World Championships and Strongman Fitness® classes at SISSOS - Bunker at Jätkäsaari, Helsinki.  This place is a huge building in the harbor of Helsinki and just a stone’s throw from the city center.

November 27
4 PM - 6 PM:  IronMind Grip Classic Vol. 3. at KAMPPI Shopping Center.
Kamppi is one of the biggest shopping centers in Finland and is located in the middle of Helsinki, on top of the main bus terminal of the capital.

7PM - Finals for all World Championships and Strongman Fitness® classes at APOLLO LIVE CLUB.   The APOLLO LIVE CLUB is maybe the most central spot in the city, located on the side of the main street in Helsinki. The live club is exclusive place for some 500 spectators in a former theater, what is now protected by the museum ministry.  In this case I think this one attached photo tells more than 1000 words about this location. This will be a spectacle, where just the lucky ones will have the opportunity to feel it live,” said Rantanen.
