Welcome To

Strongman New Zealand

Hi my name is Levi Vaoga and I am a professional strongman.


Some of you may have known me as Mr Mega, the ambassador for the Mitre 10 Mega Home Improvement stores here in New Zealand.


I’d like to welcome you to my web site and hope you enjoy what you read and see. So you understand how it all started,

I thought I’d give you a little background information about myself.


This was me as a child....


From the age of nine, I had this dream of becoming the World’s strongest man.



I train in my home built gym and since competing in strongman competitions my gym equipment has been expanded to include chains and bands as well as stones, farmer’s walks, logs and tyres, just to mention the basics.

I weight train roughly one to two hours a day and train four days on, one day off, then I train for three days straight and have one day off.



I have been competing in World strongman competitions since 1998 and have been ranked 11th and 6th in the world.

When building up for a World Strongman competition, I mix my training up to consist of gym work as well as strongman training like log lifts, tyre flipping, stone lifting and truck pulling. Four to five weeks out from the competition, I concentrate strictly on event training where I will spend time mastering different techniques. During this time I will no longer include gym work in my routine.



Since starting strongman, I have not had a coach to teach me the secrets of my chosen sport. Everything I have achieved, I have done on my own and I sincerely believe that you can achieve anything you want in life if you put your mind to it.


My future goal is to open a strongman gym and help others achieve their goals in and out of the gym. The gym will be a place where I can personally train people or maybe even help an upcoming strongman athlete like myself to become the World’s strongest man.
