Arnold Amateur Bodybuilding, Fitness, and Figure Championships Future Champions in Men’s and Women’s Bodybuilding, Women’s Fitness & Figure to Compete on the Legendary Veterans Memorial Stage.

The Arnold Sports Festival 2007 will premiere the two-day Arnold Amateur Bodybuilding, Fitness, and Figure Championships Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3 in Columbus, Ohio. This exciting and inspirational two-day event will showcase the aspiring talents of top male and female competitors from across the United States vying for top amateur status in men’s and women’s bodybuilding, and women’s fitness and figure.

“The Arnold Sports Festival is founded on the competitive spirit of bodybuilding and has grown to become the top destination for fitness, figure, and bodybuilding athletes,” said Bob Lorimer, the amateur event co-promoter with the Fitness Factory’s Mike Davies. “We’ve had champions of the Arnold Classic throughout the years, including Lee Haney and Tom Platz, who have said that their decision to compete professionally came from first sitting in the back row of Veterans Memorial Auditorium at the Mecca for professional bodybuilders - The Arnold Classic.”

Bob Lorimer added, “The Veterans Memorial stage will be equipped with the top level of professional staging in preparation for the Weekend’s Friday and Saturday evening competitions. The amateur competitors will be able to experience the conditions and sensations of competing where the sports icons have been been named. Each athlete will be inspired to plan their later return as a professional.”
