Mr. Mountaineer and some of our crew are heading out to Columbus, Ohio this weekend to set up shop at the Arnold Sports Festival. This annual, multi-sport event consists of professional body building, strongman, fitness, physique and more. Athletes from all over the world compete each year, showcasing their hard work and dedication in hopes of bringing home a champion title (and a whole lot of money).
Since we don’t really know much about this event, we turned to Mr. Mountaineer to learn more. Check out the interview below!
Mr. M: A lot of people go to this event each year. I figured it was a good way to debut our new product line for bald heads and let people know about our brand in general. It’s also a good opportunity to let people know about Mountaineer Brand RX, our CBD product line. People are more careful about what they’re putting into their bodies these days, and since we’re an all-natural company, this is a good opportunity to showcase what we have to offer.
K: I agree, it is definitely a great opportunity to show a lot of folks the goodness of the brand, but what about this event interests you as a person?
Mr. M: I’ve always liked bodybuilding. That’s the part that interests me the most. It takes a lot of dedication to pursue something like that. It’s pretty cool to see the work these people put into the sport.
K: Speaking of the dedication it takes to pursue this sport, I know you put a lot of work into your own personal health and wellness. Do you have any tips that you would like to offer to your readers?
Mr. M: Just know what you’re putting into your body. That’s important. Keep a clean diet and use all-natural products. Exercise on a regular basis, and make sure you’re getting plenty of rest so your body can recover.
K: Those are great tips! Now, let’s talk about beards and bodybuilding. I’ve heard that beards are discouraged in bodybuilding competitions because they can hide certain areas of the upper body. Do you think bearded men that wish to compete should shave it off or tuck it under?
Mr. M: Tuck it under for sure. It doesn’t need to be shaved off. My beard hangs down past my belly button. I have ways of styling it so it’s close to my face and you’d never be able to tell how long it really is. But definitely tuck it up so that the upper body work can be seen.
K: Good to know that the beard can stay! Okay, last question… which competition is your favorite?
Mr. M: IFBB Pro-League. That’s the big bodybuilding event, the one that’s always been the most interesting to me. It’s pretty cool to watch people’s hard work pay off. We just look forward to being there and meeting new people. I think it’ll be a really good experience for our team.
We certainly hope that our team enjoys every aspect of this experience, and we hope that this interview was something that you, our readers, have enjoyed. If you’re one of the lucky folks heading out to this upcoming event, be sure to stop by and say hello and check out the new product line, only available for purchase at the Arnold Sports Festival this weekend!
If you can’t make it out, don’t worry… everything will be available for purchase online soon. Lots of awesome changes are coming your way, so be sure to stay tuned and take the journey with us.
NEW EDIT: This event is no longer open for spectators and vendors due to public health concern, but we truly hope you enjoyed it. Hopefully you found some useful information, too!
