Known in the strength world for his incredible hand strength, Stanless Steel first realized he had the potential to become a professional strongman when, in a fit of anger, he ripped a racquet ball apart with his hands. He then decided to hone this strength into a show and now performs more than 50 different stunts—including bending the shortest steel bars in the world and being the first man since the mighty Cyclops in the 1890’s to legitimately bend coins in his fingers.
Stanless believes these feats are not just acts of physical strength—but of deep emotional and spiritual strength. They are demonstrations of the kind of life transformation possible when you put your whole belief system into something.
Stanless has appeared on more than 30 television shows, everything from The Maury Povich Show, Ricki Lake and Crook and Chase to NBC’s You Asked For It and Japan’s Unbelievable. He continues to do television shows as well as shows in his local community. In his day job, he salvages and sells scrap metal.
