Most consider Saturday at the Arnold Sports Festival to be the busiest day of the event. Anyone walking the aisles of the Fitness EXPO today would most likely agree with that again this year. The crowds were huge but spectators were rewarded with an amazing fitness exhibition.
Lines snaked around the entire GNC booth as visitors tried their best to win a GNC giftcard by completing the Grip Gauntlet.
The Team GNC athletes were doing a great job of handling the booth crowd as always. A few guests came by the booth for appearances on Saturday as well. Dymatize athletes Erin Stern and Andy Haman came to greet fans.
Kurt Angle also dropped by the booth for an autograph session that had fans lined up into the aisles.
For the second straight day the CrossFit room was full of eager spectators ready to watch athletes complete the 2nd Open Workout of the CrossFit Games. GNC athlete Tina Durkin completed 61 reps just one day after competing in the Fitness competition!
Though the Fitness EXPO floor was packed there were many events going on outside of the main room in the convention center. Crowds gathered as athletes put up some big weights as in the picture below.
A special congratulations goes out to GNC athlete Adela Garcia as she won her 5th IFBB Fitness International competition! She is the All-Time Champ of that event. She talked with us about her preparation for the competition just days before winning - Adela Garcia - Preparing for The Arnold
