– in store 2 hour visit and interaction with fans on tomorrow
Their commitment towards the continued development of sports in Guyana was once again expressed in tangible terms when Fitness Express Manager Jamie Mc Donald welcomed Hugh Ross Classic Guest Poser Jeff ‘Classic’ Beckham to Guyana.
Fitness Express sponsored the ticket and fees for Beckham to be in Guyana on the invitation of long time friend and buddy, Hugh Ross.
Yesterday, at Fitness Express, located at 47 John and Sheriff Streets, Campbellville, Ross extended gratitude to Mc Donald for his unflinching support to the classics noting the significant part Fitness Express has been playing in the growth and success of the show over the years.
“I am humbly grateful to Mr. Mc Donald, fitness Express and staff for their partnership over the years, the Hugh Ross Classic Committee is really appreciative of your largesse and words of encouragement.”
Mc Donald in response thanked Ross and his committee for allowing his entity the opportunity to be on board once again.
“Fitness Express, ever since it opened four years ago have made it a priority to be deeply involved with body building and powerlifting and the strength sports in general in Guyana, so any time an opportunity comes up we are always on board to help out in any way we can.
Mc Donald noted that he had no hesitation in agreeing to bring Beckham to Guyana especially since the IFBB Pro is very knowledgeable about the sport, nutrition and fitness.
“In addition to him guest posing at the HRC Show, on Thursday (tomorrow) Jeff will be at our store between 14:00 – 16:00hrs and will answer any questions that customers or members of the general public poses to him about fitness, body building and nutrition in general. We are very excited to have him here for this as well.”
In brief remarks Beckham expressed gratitude to Fitness Express for agreeing to sponsor him. He noted that this is only the second time that he has traveled out of the USA and already, has been experiencing the warmth and hospitality of the Guyanese fans.
“I’m having a wonderful time here and would like to thank Hugh for inviting me down here. I would like to encourage everybody to come at Fitness Express store and ask whatever questions they want. You can come punch me in my arms and have your photos taken, I’m cool, I’m just looking forward to see and interact with all you guys.”
Tickets for Saturday’s show are on sale at the National Cultural Centre at $1500 each. Show time at the same venue is 19:00hrs. Weigh-in time for athletes will be 10:00hrs on Saturday also.
Saturday’s showdown will feature defending champion Kerwyn Clarke whose quest to retain the overall crown will not be an easy task as he would have to get past the likes of old rival Devon Davis, Marlon Bennett, Alfred Jordon and new Novice King, Sylvester Andrews. A mouth watering show is in the making.
