Continuing Our Leadership Role in the Sports/Fitness Arena… As We Head To The Arnold Classic for Our 10th Year
This coming weekend, CMG will once again have a major presence at the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio – as we continue our tradition of sponsorship for this event that has become the largest multi-sport event in the nation. For the tenth consecutive year, CMG will proudly be in attendance at “The Arnold” (which takes place from March 1st – 4th ) – where more than 175,000 fitness enthusiasts will gather to experience thrilling moments of sports competition and fitness entertainment. In addition, attendees at this major event will also have the chance to experience the 700-booth Arnold Fitness EXPO offering the biggest names in health & fitness who present the latest trends in fitness apparel, supplements, and training equipment.
Once again, CMG will be a sponsor of the Arnold Amateur competitions. CMG partners Rick Collins and Marc Gann will be up on the EXPO stage handing out trophies to the contest winners midday on Saturday. Also, this year we are particularly excited to announce that Rick Collins is scheduled to present a special award to MMA superstar Randy Couture. Couture – three-time Heavyweight UFC Champion and two-time Light Heavyweight Champion – remains one of the most successful figures in MMA history. He is also an actor who can be seen in The Expendables and The Expendables 2 – working alongside major action stars including Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jet Li, Eric Roberts, Steve Austin and Jason Statham, among others. Rick, the founder of the Leap for Life fund-raiser (www.leapforlife.org), will be presenting Randy with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his outstanding career achievements and charitable endeavors on Friday at 11:45 AM on the EXPO stage — photos and more information on this will be posted after the presentation! Be sure to stop by to say hello to Rick and Marc, and also to CMG lawyers Alan Feldstein who, along with Rick and Marc, will be at the EXPO on both Friday and Saturday meeting with the many supplement company principals who are CMG clients.
We are thrilled to be a part of this year’s Arnold Classic – and are looking forward to talking to those in the industry about the latest news, trends and innovations in the health and fitness arena. As we gather with nearly 200,000 fitness enthusiasts and industry professionals, we remain pleased to not only have a role in bringing this event to the public, but to have continued to offer our legal services and counsel to those in the industry throughout the years. A lot of exciting developments in the health/sports/fitness arena have occurred over the past decade since we became involved annually with The Arnold … and we remain proud to not only be affiliated with this prestigious event, but to continue our role as a leader this industry.
Be sure to check back on our website and Facebook page for our updates (and photos) from the 2012 Arnold Classic. In addition, as always, we’ll continue to bring you the latest information about issues that affect you – both from this coming weekend at The Arnold, as well as through our work as attorneys in the sports/health and fitness/nutritional supplement practice areas.
