4 Months to the AFX, Did you remember to register?

The Alaska Fitness Expo (AFX) is the premier multi-sport expo of the Pacific Northwest.  Where else can you ahng out with the like of Kai Greene and Goerge Farrah, while getting in a  high level weightlifting competition.  In many ways, the AFX is much like the Arnold, though on a more intimate level — its an event jam packed with every strength sport involving a barbell– Olympic Weightlifting, CrossFit, Powerlifting, StrongMan  as well as feature an NPC bodybuilding, fitness, and physique competition The NPC competition is always emceed by a world renowend body builder and features a guest poser.AFX

Risto Sports will be a title sponsor of the weightlifting competition.  The competition will feature prize money as well as guest competitors.  You can get international wieghtlifting experience, win some cash, then chill out with the best of the strength sports world all in one day.  The competitors also receive high quality competitor bags. Teh whole weekend will also feature seminars for several of the sports, including a Soviet System seminar by Risto Sports  and Kendrick Farris’s Bless the Gym seminar.

Even better, its much cheaper to fly to the AFX in Anchorage, AK in the fall than it is to many other places where Olympic lifting international level meets are held.  Anchorage is also quite beautiful and still warm in October– you might even get a free show by the Northern Lights.

The AFX…finally an excuse to go to Alaska!
