If ever there were a treasure hunt to find every top name in bodybuilding – past and present, amateur and pro, American and international star – you’d find them all in one place at the Arnold Fitness Weekend in Columbus, Ohio. Once again, organizers managed to find more room for more sporting activities – some 45 events in all, with more than 18,000 athletes (which is, incidentally, more than the Olympic Games) and 175,000 fans.

As usual, the place to be was the Expo Hall, jammed with 700 booths. Whether you wanted free samples of protein or T-shirts, get your picture taken with the hottest fitness women or just get an autograph from your favorite bodybuilder, you could find it all and more at the Expo. Take a peek at just some of the festivities.
