California Fitness Gym has opened its doors to the Ghana Bodybuilding and Fitness Association and its athletes as a form of sponsorship ahead of the upcoming Man Ghana 2020 competition and beyond.
This was revealed to the media this afternoon by the Chief Executive Officer of California Fitness gym, Ali Ghassani when he met with officials of the Association to announce the package at the Gym inside the Palace Mall in Accra.
According to him, bodybuilding and fitness go hand in hand, and California Fitness Gym was particularly impressed with the efforts from the GBFA in promoting the sport in the country, an action that informed their decision to come on board to sponsor the Black Muscles as they go through their qualifiers (Man Ghana) and prepare for the 2021 Arnold Classic in South Africa.
“We are excited as a fitness organization to partner the GBFA to bring out the best in their athletes as they prepare for both the Man Ghana and the Arnold Classic 2021”, Ali Ghassani mentioned.
“As part of the sponsorship for the GBFA and the Black Muscles, we have decided that all GBFA recognized athletes can come and use our facilities here at the California Fitness Gym, to prepare for the upcoming Man Ghana 2020 competition”.
“Also, athletes and executives of the GBFA will have access to our studio here at the gym.”
Ali Ghassani further added that those who eventually get selected into the Black Muscles to represent the nation in all competitions next year will have the opportunity to train at the gym, ahead of their international competitions.
“All athletes who get selected to participate for the Black Muscles at the 2021 Arnold Classic, will be given the opportunity to train at the gym two months to the competition in South Africa”, he added.
This piece of news was happily received from the rank and file of the Ghana Bodybuilding and Fitness Association, especially its president, Abdul Hayye Yartey as he signed the deal on behalf of the association.
“It’s a thing of joy for us as an association when our efforts are complemented with activities like these. With this support of a gym for our athletes coming from California Fitness, before Man Ghana and Arnold Classic, I believe this will go a long way to positively enhance their preparation to bring out the best in them on stage.
This year’s Man Ghana competition is slated for the 7th of November at the Osu Presbyterian hall.
