“I have been fortunate to be appointed the promoter of this prestigious event and am proud to say that I was the first to bring IFBB bodybuilding to the Tampa Bay area last year. Raves from officials and the media tagged our event as of “Olympia” quality in its inaugural year. My staff and I intend to expand this production to proportions that will deem it one of the top three IFBB bodybuilding contests in the world to where each year, Tampa will be visited by thousands of health enthusiasts on our Tampa fitness weekend,” says Tim Gardner, IFBBF Tampa Body Building Weekly Championships Event Director.
