For the 11th consecutive year, Collins, McDonald & Gann will be playing a major role at the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio (www.arnoldsportsfestival.com) – which has grown to be the largest multi-sport event in the nation. The event, which attracts more than 175,000 fitness enthusiasts and industry professionals each year, is marking an important milestone this year – as The Arnold Classic celebrates its 25th Anniversary by honoring all former past winners of the men’s professional bodybuilding championships named in honor of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the sport’s greatest champion. The 2013 Arnold Sports Festival is taking place this year from February 28th through March 3rd .
Once again, CMG is sponsoring the Arnold Amateur competitions – where CMG partner Rick Collins (a former competitive bodybuilder himself) will be presenting awards and handing out trophies for a number of the competitions, both at Veterans Memorial and on the Expo Stage. Joining him in the presentation of awards this year will be new associate Katie Weitzman, attending The Arnold for the first time this year, and presenting awards in the Master Women’s Fitness category. As in previous years, in addition to sponsoring the amateur contests, CMG will also be sponsoring the Arm Wrestling Competition – noted to be the premier arm sport event in the world.
We’re excited to once again be playing an important role at this major event and are looking forward to meeting with fellow fitness enthusiasts throughout the country who gather each year to experience thrilling moments of sports competition and fitness entertainment. In addition to the competitions, the event also gives attendees the opportunity to experience the Arnold Fitness EXPO – where more than 700 booths will showcase the biggest names in health and fitness presenting the latest trends in fitness apparel, supplements and training equipment.
Throughout the weekend, we’re looking forward to meeting with clients and others in the industry (including readers of Rick’s Muscular Development column) – and welcome the opportunity to meet with all those attending. Please seek us out to say hello – we’d love to talk to you about some of today’s key issues in the health/fitness industry. With so many new and continuing developments in the health/sports/fitness arena, we have some important insight in this area – and would love to meet with you.
We extend our best wishes to all of the athletes competing at this year’s events and wish all of the competitors good luck. Again, with our personal experience in the world of bodybuilding and fitness, we know first-hand of the demands of this competitive sport — and we greatly admire and respect each participant in this year’s events.
