The 2017 Arnold
Strongman Classic

Rogue Fitness has been a proud sponsor of the Arnold Strongman Classic since 2012

"The strongman field now seems to be drawing the greatest strength athletes. They can do things that real experts, 50 years ago, would have laughed if you had said people could lift a 600lb stone off the ground. It’s preposterous."

History of Strongman
“People in those days knew how important it would be to a man to be able strong. In a world in which a lot of people earned their living by the strength of their back, that meant something.”

The Arnold Weightlifting Championships, Powered by Rogue, is one of the marquee events of the annual Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio (currently the largest multi-sport festival in America). Since 2003, this competition—hosted by Columbus Weightlifting Club, Inc.—has showcased dozens of the country’s most accomplished lifters, including established pros and rising stars in the sport. There’s a reason Schwarzenegger himself helps produce the event and regularly makes an appearance.

As of 2015, the Arnold Weightlifting Championships include five divisions of competition for both female and male weightlifters. To date, more than $200,000 in prize money and scholarships have been awarded to top finishers, making it one of the premier events in American weightlifting.
