This is the biggest event of fitness industry was March 5-7. As predicted the Arnold Sports Festival had about 180,000 people that passed through the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
Not only is the most prestigious fitness and bodybuilding competition held here, but it has expanded tremendously since the event started nearly 16 years ago. The professional athletes competing must receive a hand selected invitation to participate! Arnold and his committee decide who get to compete. I was fortunate to compete in this show four years in a row. Mak Attack Fitness Wear participated in the Sunday Fashion show for seven years now! This is the first year without a fashion show.
I definitely have lots of pictures to share with you. Like this one here with my MSU Spartan friend Lee Roupus. Giving me the thumbs up!
Here is Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger walking by our booth. There were obviously lots of fans trying to take his picture. When I was competing in the show, he would come back stage and visit with us. Now that he is governor – he can no longer do that. He has his secret service, body guards, and security that escort him around.
Danny J and I are smiling for the cameras. We worked near each other last year at the Arnold – a great gal and fellow competitor.
Here are a few of the other gals that worked at the booth – they handed out sample supplements, magazines, and answered questions about Infinite products. (check out the Mak Attack Fitness Wear that we wore.) Two of the gals are fitness competitors, yay, and the other is a figure competitor on her way to get a pro card, yay!
Here are the men behind the scenes at Infinite Labs. What a great crew of guys to work with for the weekend!
