This is what it looked like most of the time in front of me at the Arnold Fitness EXPO, part of the Arnold Sports Festival here in Columbus, Ohio – nothing but a sea of people. It was packed! I took this picture as I was standing still… instead of walking down one of the aisles. It was a little too crowded for me, but I managed to find some breathing room at a few of the booths.
In case you’re not familiar with the Arnold, it’s the world’s largest multi-sport fitness weekend. Quite a big change since its 1989 beginning as The Arnold Classic – a one-day professional men’s bodybuilding competition. Now, it features 46 sports and events, and an EXPO with 700 fitness-related booths.
My absolute favorite thing at the EXPO was spending a few minutes with fitness model, Jamie Eason. I’ve featured her a few times before, and I have another interview for you coming soon, so stay tuned! It was Jamie who first opened my eyes about clean eating.
This new PortaPocket looks like it would be a pretty convenient way to carry your stuff with you while you workout, don’t you think?
And check out this 16-inch Sport Razor designed for shaving your back or other hard-to-reach areas. Interesting…
I love, love, love this turkey jerky from Up North Jerky Outlet – it’s so tender and flavorful. I bought three bags to share with my husband and they are pretty much gone already, and I ate most of it. 🙂
I took a little break and tried a foam roller here. Ahhh… it felt good on my tense shoulders!
And speaking of tense muscles, The Trigger Wheel works wonders – it’s perfect for your neck, shoulders, and arms.
Okay, what’s up with this? They sell beer at the Fitness EXPO??? Hmmm… maybe that’s why the aisles were at a standstill…
