Mark Black, Strongman Competitor

  • I’m more of a big softy than most people think.
  • One of my favorite movies is The Sound of Music
  • My dog is one of my best friends.
  • I love the pain of the gym….Hurts so good !!!
  • I am addicted to ice cream !!!
  • My wife is my best, and sometimes my only friend.
  • I love my healthy clean lifestyle I have now!!
  • Bucket List Secret: Learning how to sing.

I love shows like the Voice where I can watch young singers realize their dreams.

As much as I loved my years of mushing, I don’t miss it at all !!!

I was an Upper Midwest Golden Gloves boxer in my younger days.

I am on the downhill slide to 60 (OMG) but I am stronger than at anytime in my life !!! It pays to workout !! The old saying” if I know I was gonna live this long, I would have taken better care of myself” holds true to me. My younger, and not so younger years, I spent way too much time being unhealthy and eating and drinking all the wrong stuff, and partying too much.
