With 600+ athletes competing at the 2016 Fitness America™ Weekend one can only imagine the excitement and the electric atmosphere at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino. The magnificent stage was set to provide the perfect back drop for the finest Natural Athletes in the industry.
The energy is always off the scale in Las Vegas, it is without doubt one of the most exciting locations in the world to host a Bodybuilding and Fitness Event. The Fitness America™ Weekend has been running for over 25 years in Vegas, it has grown to become the absolute pinnacle of Natural Bodybuilding and Fitness Events on the planet, attracting well over 600 of the finest Natural Athletes each year.
Our 2016 Team Members were ready to show the rest of the World what they were made of. We had a great array of athletes competing across the two day event including Bodybuilding, Figure, Physique, Model and Bikini. This show is not an easy show to win, it is a true World Title and each and every competitor is out to take top honours for their Team and Country.
Athletes from the UK, France, India, Middle East, Japan, Finland, Canada, New Zealand, Korea and of course Australia are just some of the participating Countries! Korea always brings an extremely strong team with close to one hundred athletes! My Wife and I have been making the Vegas journey since 2009 and it is always a pleasure to not only share each athletes success but also the whole Las Vegas experience. In all due respect we are proud of each and every one of our Team Members as they all represent Australia with pride and style. Sure not everyone is going to win or place, but thats not the point. This is about coming together, building new friendships, sharing the experience from the 12 hour flight, the city of Las Vegas, to stepping onto one of the biggest Natural Event Stages in the world. It’s the entire experience!
Probably the best way for me to express and reflect on the 2016 show is through the amazing images we captured over the course of the event. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In this instance that saying could not be further from the truth as you will see throughout the following 20 pages of imagery. I have listed names and placings where applicable but as I said each and every athlete should be incredibly proud of their achievements and without question we are looking forward to doing it all again on November 17-18 for the 2017 Fitness America™ Weekend.
