Now retired, Phil is an American strongman who lays claim to the 2006 World’s Strongest Man title. He now works as a fireman but is often heard as a commentator on US coverage of the WSM competition.
Phil’s early years saw him chopping firewood to pay for his college education – if Rocky IV taught us anything its that chopping wood provides a better workout than even the best gym facilities can provide. Throughout his career Pfister was one of the few strongmen that proclaimed to be drug-free and is certainly only one of a handful of WSM winners that has actively denied using performance enhancing drugs. Pretty impressive if true!
