Right now I'm about 7.5 weeks out from defending my title at the Olympia. My prep is the best it
s ever been thus far and I'm ahead of schedule. Neil is happy, so I am happy. I am excited about getting on stage in Vegas, but I wanted to discuss the release of my new series on FLEX Online –Defending The Olympia 212 Showdown Title sponsored by Gaspari Nutrition. Fans will get a behind the scenes look at my home life, nutrition, Gaspari Nutrition supplementation program and training with Sean Barber plus a special appearance with the boss Rich Gaspari.
You will also see a side of me that many don
t get to see. My dogs!!! I raise and breed American Bullies. So the cameras got the very rare chance to see the latest addition to the Flextreme BullyCamp @flextreme_bullycamp with nine new additions arriving on July 14. You will also see rate footage from the 2012 Olympia Weekend that will be featured on my upcoming 2013 DVD project in collaboration with FLEX magazine. (Photo attached 3days old- whelping box) On Monday, 8/12 the first episode will broadcast on FLEX Online at http://www.flexonline.com/ifbb/james-flex-lewis and every Monday thereafter a new episode will go LIVE.
On Monday, 9/23 a bonus episode featuring footage from the 2012 Olympia 212 Showdown will kick off Olympia Week. I am very excited about these two projects. I want to thank Robin Chang and Robbie Durand of AMI/Weider and the entire staff for all of the support in the magazine throughout the year. I want to thank Rich Gaspari for believing in me since 2008, I am so proud to fly the flag as Team Gaspari's first ever athlete to win at the Olympia. Special thanks to Michael and the team at GASP, Joe V. of Gaspari for all the hours of behind the scenes work he’s been helping me with on and off the stage, my training partner Sean Barber who still flies down from TN to train and my new training partner in FL, James Davis. This new series wouldn’t be a reality without my boy Ryan Loco and last but no means least, my girlfriend Ali Rosen. She
has helped me bring the best Flex Lewis to the stage mentally and physically, having that someone, the other person to believe in you more than yourself at times is priceless.
Stay tuned to FLEX Online and my blog for updates as I prepare to defend my title in a rematch against Kevin English and David Henry with the ever improving Jose Raymond, Sami Haddad and the sleeper of the 212 class Guy Cisternino and the 11 other guys hunting for my title!! Thanks again for all the support.
I know I say it time after time, but I
love my fans, value all the support on my store and love seeing you rock my apparel all over the world from Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Nothing makes me feel better and I’m thrilled to unveil a new “The Welsh Dragon” design soon. #TheWelshDragon #NoStoneUnturned #BelieveToAchieve
