Her name is Jennifer Bahney. She is a future figure competitor who trains at Powell Fitness, which happens to be near Columbus, the home city of the Arnold. She runs a hair care web site called Long Hair Lovers, (www.longhairlovers.com) and posts quite a bit about her business on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/Longhairlovers) and Twitter(http://twitter.com/longhairlovers). She is also dealing with hypothyroidism in her quest to compete one day. Definitely an inspiration.
Jennifer will be attending the Arnold on Friday for the women's prejudging events (Ms. International, Fitness International, Figure International). She will be tweet via her personal Twitter account (@JenniferBahney) during those events and possibly the expo afterwards. She will also be providing some updates via our fan page (https://www.facebook.com/fitgemsnation) For those that have followed FitGems since the beginning, this is a big step for us to even do something like this. In time, we hope to evolve and provide more exclusive footage from events such as the Arnold.
Please follow along with Jennifer, and for all things Arnold, use the hashtag #asf2013. This is the official hashtag for the Arnold that will be used by everyone throughout the week.
Jennifer, we look forward to what you will bring to the FitGems Nation this weekend and beyond. To all the spectators and competitors heading to Columbus in a matter of days, have fun!
