No Olympia For Me This Year

Fun times from Olympia 2011 with Anca and Farinaz

For the past seven years, I have attended Olympia every year and have always enjoyed the whole experience. This year, however, I will not be attending since the main sports supplement company I work with, SWAT Fuel, will not have a presence there this time around. What is strange for me is that I am not bothered by the fact that I won’t be rubbing elbows with the fitness and bodybuilding icons I have come to know over the years. In some sense I am actually relieved that I will get a break this year, since I have been traveling more this year and could use a staycation.

For those of you who are wondering what event I will be at next, please come by and say hi at the Ferrigno Legacy on November 18th and 19th. I will be at the Flexpo, handing out samples of SWAT Fuel’s 9mm+P, which is a combination preworkout/endurance/thermogenic formula unlike anything else on the market!

Fitness Events Are Dress Up Days

555121_546164792080628_1302266811_nOne of the reasons why I look forward to working at and attending fitness and bodybuilding events is because I can indulge in a dress up day. In fact, women who attend such events are expected to come in attire that is blingy, tight, and skimpy. I have no problem with this since such threads are essentially forbidden in my normal daily life in the gym and as a physician. All the bright colors, heavy makeup, and sparkly jewelry I have hidden away are dug out for these events, and I have fun with it, especially since I really don’t dress up for Halloween anymore.

I have had non-fitness friends ask me what to wear to events such as the L.A. Fit Expo, or to local bodybuilding events. Honestly, the main thing is to be comfortable if you are a spectator, especially if you plan to walk around a lot. But if you are hell bent on “fitting in”, think form fitting and muscle hugging. That usually does the trick for men and women. Some people in the fitness world can push the envelope with clothing that is so tight and revealing that you may think you are being mooned or flashed when they pass by you. To each her own I guess, but I would never advertise my goodies to that extreme.

Many women have asked me where I have gotten my dresses, so I am providing a link to the main site from which I have purchased in the past.
