FatFighterTV highlights from the Arnold Fitness EXPO 2011

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…
