BLOG: Navigating the 2016 Arnold Sports Festival

Mar 07

By Steve Wartenberg | There’s a new event at the world’s largest multi-sport fitness weekend and each and every one of the 185,000 people who attended the Arnold Sports Festival participated – whether they wanted to or not.

Quickness is a necessity, as you often need to duck and dart through small openings before the hole closes up – and shoot photos on your smart phone as you make your way from one venue to the next of the famous people you see.
