2014 Mr. Olympia Competition

Body Fortress recently flew me out to the 2014 Mr. Olympia Competition held September 19th and 20th at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas Nevada. This Mr. Olympia was different than Mr. Olympia’s of the past for a couple of reasons.  First, this was the 50th anniversary of Joe Weider’s Mr. Olympia competition.  And second, my brother was competing in the show.  The show was very competitive and exciting featuring only the best bodybuilders and fitness athletes in the world.  When the dust settled my brother did an awesome job of representing New Mexico and Training Innovations proud!  Congratulations Jojo on a great showing in your first Mr. Olympia contest!

The Mr. Olympia Fitness Expo also took place the same weekend at the Las Vegas Convention Center.  The Expo was held earlier in the day for fans to come out and meet some of their favorite athletes and also to get a chance to try the latest and greatest supplements on the market.  The Body Fortress booth was  swarmed as usual with our pull up challenge and quick punching the pads challenge.  I had the pleasure of working with my Body Fortress team mates and also had the opportunity to meet and greet lots of new fans and friends.  I had an unforgettable weekend and look forward to being a part of it again next year!
