Front and Center for Biggest Arnold Weekend Ever
Feb. 26, 2013
On the 25th Anniversary of the Arnold Classic, Gaspari Nutrition will be showcased throughout the weekend starting with its owner and CEO. Rich Gaspari will be receiving the Arnold Schwarzenegger 'Lifetime Achievement Award', an honor held only by a select few in the bodybuilding community. Rich won the inaugural Arnold Classic in 1989, arguably the biggest win of his career. Ironically, Rich wasn't going to compete in the Arnold after a lengthy competition tour overseas. However, a personal request to compete from Schwarzenegger himself was an offer that Rich could not refuse.
Even though Rich has long retired from competition, his company Gaspari Nutrition will be represented on stage by athletes Jaime Baird and Hidetada Yamagishi. Jaime will be competing in the Bikini division, and finished 4th at last year's Arnold. Hidetada, despite breaking his wrist just a few weeks ago, plans to compete in the Men's open and has a great opportunity for a top 5 finish. Both athletes will also be appearing in the Gaspari booth at the Arnold Expo to meet and greet with fans.
Gaspari Nutrition has been a mainstay at the Expo for years, sporting one of the largest and most popular booths. This year, attendees will have the opportunity to sample two new products; SuperDrive - Pre Training Energy Superfuel, and IsoFusion - Premium Whey Isolate. Two of Team Gaspari's most popular athletes, Frankie Edgar and Flex Lewis, will be signing autographs and taking pictures. Fans will also have the unique opportunity to capture a photo of themselves in a mock Gaspari advertisement while waiting in line for free gear and samples. A large green screen will be installed outside the booth where men and women can pose next to their favorite Gaspari athletes. All photos will be available on the Gaspari Facebook page and anyone who 'shares' or 'likes' their photo will be eligible to win over $1,000 in merchandise. Giveaways will be plentiful across Gaspari's Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram sites throughout the Arnold weekend.
Finally, Gaspari Nutrition is a presenting sponsor of the 2013 Arnold Amateur International bodybuilding contest. The Arnold Amateur showcases some of the best amateur athletes around the world and may even have a future Team Gaspari athlete in its lineup this year.
