Icelandic strongman, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, has started his own company, named Thor’s Power. The company sells t-shirts, mugs, and keyrings but also offers remote workout programmes for individuals, conducted by the Mountain himself.

Hafþór is keeping extremely busy these days and in addition to running Thor’s Power, he is currently training for strongman competitions and will soon begin filming the next series of the popular television show Game of Thrones, where he plays the role of the Mountain. Filming mostly takes place in Spain and in Ireland.

“I’m home in Iceland for the next two weeks. Filming begins in August and I’ll spend a week at a time filming until December – that’s the longest I’ve had to be on set,” he told Vísir
