MUTANT Sponsors 2021 Arnold Classic

The team at MUTANT Nutrition has been keeping busy as of late, with all kinds of industry news. It was just a short time ago that we shared the news of MUTANT sponsoring the 2021 Olympia, as well as legendary bodybuilder Shawn Ray signing with MUTANT as Global Brand Ambassador. And now, on the heels of the announcement from Aaron Singerman that Redcon1 will no longer sponsor the Arnold Classic or any of the Arnold Sports Festival events, MUTANT and its top spokesman and former Arnold Classic champion Shawn Ray, will be sponsoring for the 2021 Arnold Class on September 25, in Columbus, Ohio. 

The Arnold Sports Festival, the largest sports festival in the world, has long been an apolitical organization. As the Governor says, “Fitness is for everyone.” No matter your creed, color, religion, or political beliefs, the Arnold Sports Festival welcomes you with open arms. Recently, however, one of the key sponsors decided that they could no longer support the Arnold Classic after Gov. Schwarzenegger said that freedom comes with responsibility. 

“We are all-in on sponsoring the Arnold,” MUTANT Nutrition Director, Ian Bell did not want to get into specifics on the other company that decided to pull out based on comments Arnold Schwarzenegger made. “But at MUTANT we decided to go all-in and support the Arnold and we’ll be there next year when it’s back in March with the expo and such in 2022.”

While this move may seem controversial to some, MUTANT Nutrition recognizes the Arnold Classic and Arnold Sports Festivals to maintain a non-political position and whether you are a bodybuilder, competitor, or even just a fan, no one has impacted more people in regards to health and fitness around the world than Arnold. MUTANT believes in standing out from the crowd, don’t look back, look forward, and they don’t discriminate. They want fitness back! We are all excited to have the Arnold Classic back again. And don’t forget that this year’s 2021 Arnold Classic winners will now earn 2021 Olympia qualifications.

"We thank MUTANT® for their long-time dedication and support of the Arnold Classic, our athletes, fans and the sport of bodybuilding, especially during these difficult times caused but the coronavirus pandemic," Schwarzenegger said. "But we know that the Arnold Classic will be back bigger, better, and most importantly safer than ever thanks to partners like MUTANT®."

The Arnold Classic, Arnold Classic Physique, Fitness International, and Bikini International will attract the world’s best bodybuilders and the fittest men and women on the planet to Columbus to battle for $412,000 in prize money. The Arnold Classic will be held on Saturday, Sept. 25 at the Battelle Grand at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Finals will begin at 7 p.m. Prejudging will be held at 10 a.m. For more information and to purchase tickets to the 2021 Arnold Classic visit www.arnoldsportsfestival.com.
