Fitness, bodybuilding event next weekend at Stateline
Anybody headed out to this?
STATELINE, Nev. — The Tahoe Show Fitness and Bodybuilding Championship, an NPC Amateur Bodybuilding National Qualifier Competition, will be held at the Montbleu Resort Showroom in Stateline, NV on the south shore of Lake Tahoe next Saturday, Aug. 27.
The NPC-sanctioned event is projected to attract some 2,000-plus spectators and 350-plus athletes who will compete for custom championship trophies and a coveted National Qualification.
What is expected to be a blockbuster amateur bodybuilding show promises much more than flexing physiques.
“At this event everyone leaves with something; fitness supplements, apparel, prizes, celebrity photos and a ton of motivation to be fit,” promoter Chris Minnes said.
In addition to the bodybuilding contest, the show includes 20 fitness vendors offering up free samples, training advice, and fitness apparel. Top vendors include Carr Cellular Fitness, SWAT FUEL, Max Muscle of Reno, Str8 Shredded, Cellucor and Muscle Icon.
“The sport of bodybuilding has changed so much from the days of the ‘mass monsters,’” Minnes said. “Today we have six men’s and women’s divisions. These division focus on an athletic and balanced look like you’d see on the cover of GQ or Women’s Health magazine. Competitors prove that age is just number with competitors as young as 16 and as old as 80!”
Still, expect lots of flexing at this visual extravaganza covered by magazines, bloggers, major main stream media and in thousands of tweets, photos and social media fan page posts around the globe.
As the show sells out of tickets annually, producers, in partnership with Carr Cellular Fitness, have solved the problem by streaming the event, making it viewable around the world.
“There is nothing like being there in person to feel the energy and excitement of the show; it really gets you motivated,” Minnes said. “But if you can’t be there, you can join the over 10,000 people who watch the show online.”
Renowned as one of the industry’s best competitions by contestants, judges and spectators alike, the schedule for the Tahoe Show, held at Montbleu Resort on Saturday, August 27 is:
9:30 a.m. — Doors open to public for Pre-Judging for all NPC Divisions at the Montbleu Showroom
10:00 a.m. — Pre-Judging
5:30 p.m. — Doors open for finals at the Montbleu Showroom
6 p.m. — Finals for all NPC Divisions.
10 p.m. — After-party at Opal Ultra Lounge. Complementary entry for competitors.
