Arnold Transformation Challenge

We want your story of YOUR transformation, whether it is with the help of a trainer or on your own.

The Arnold Sports Festival is searching for the trainer, instructor, coach or individual with the most empowering story of transformation. Finalists will have opportunity to appear live at the 2017 Arnold Transformation Challenge at 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 4 in B230 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

Thoughts for your before and after story should include:

* how you look and feel right now.
* your quality of life.
* what your unhealthy habits are.
* changes would you like to see.
* your energy level.
* why you need and want this change in your life.

**It is important for others to feel what you are going through. This will inspire and encourage others. With the help of a trainer, coach or instructor they too can change, and transform their own lives.
