2014 Arnold Sports Festival Recap

I came, I saw, I flexed and selfie-d to my heart’s content. The 2014 Arnold Classic was one of those events that I needed to experience in order to appreciate the sheer awesomeness of it all. I arrived in Columbus Ohio barely able to contain my excitement, and what I got was a convention center that was barely able to contain the energy of thousands of sports and fitness fanatics. Look on for some photo highlights for the event!

In no particular order, here are some of the things I saw, and people that I chatted with.

No explanation necessary. Posing with THE ARNOLD.

And speaking of Arnold, this is about as close as I got. He was roaming the expo the entire weekend, and with him- his security team.
