Getting GYFT'D at #ASF15  (Part One)

Despite nationwide delays, the GYFT team weathered through, well, the weather, to arrive in Columbus, Ohio for none other than the Arnold Sports Festival 2015. Over 175,000 people flocked to the convention center to witness some of the most impressive feats of human strength and physical capabilities.

Aside from the incredibly large human beings, plethora of perfectly sculpted buns in colorful yoga pants, and the hair-singing smell of protein farts, here are some of the highlights of our trip. Be sure to stay tuned as GYFT will be posting live interviews with some surprise athletes and celebrities.
