Andrew Oye's Verdict:
As reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report," the LA Fit Expo in January featured a more eclectic guest list, including a rock guitarist, R&B singer, WNBA player, pro boxing champ and some National Football League NFL Pro football players at the event in Los Angeles. Still, the San Jose event expects some interesting guests and touts: "This celebration of health, fitness and martial arts is one of the biggest and most unique fitness-related expos in Northern California!" After hobnobbing with various athletes of the Ultimate Fighting Championships and World Wrestling Entertainment at the fitness expo, bodybuilding fans can return to rooting for their favorite competitors of the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness when the IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series resumes with the Tampa Pro Bodybuilding Championships (August 11).
