Office Art, Strongman Style – Feats of Strength Friday
So if you’ve been following me for any time, or if you’ve poked around my website like the nosy person you are (I’m kidding, it’s actually a trait of the well informed to do their research on a person before hiring them…which is one of the reasons I post these things) you may know that in addition to being a personal trainer with a personal training studio on Main Street in Boonton, I’m also a modern day steel bending strongman.
My wife calls me useless around the house. Some people call me an artist, but I’m not one in the traditional sense since I use soap. I bend steel into artistic pieces I call scrollptures. Is it art? Who’s to say? I just start bending it and it comes into a life of it’s own, each one being different from the last.
So recently an acupuncturist friend of mine had reopened in a new location in Boonton and wanted a piece to help decorate her new acupuncture office in Boonton. I’m rather pleased with the way it came out.
Each of these is bent without the use of heat or tools. Most of the time I just use clear coat to prevent rust, and because the places where the steel bends a coating flakes off and gives it character. In this case, I painted it to represent the colors associated with her brand.
You can actually see how I bent the steel in this video.
If you are interested in something like this, let me know. I don’t really push these things but they are available when someone wants to order one. If you want one before the holiday’s you better put the request in soon.
Or if you are interested in training with a steel bending strongman I have a free trial available. Just text me at 973 476 5328 and let me know when you want to get started.
