Arnold Fitness International Preview, Predictions & Poll

Fitness International
The 2015 Arnold Fitness International will take place this weekend in Columbus, Ohio. The Fitness International competitors will earn the most money out of all of the female divisions and rightfully so. The women of fitness are tasked with not only being in top shape for the two-piece round but also perform a routine. Their routines aren’t just dancing around and doing a few jumping-jacks. Oh no, the women of the Arnold are some of the elite fitness competitors in the world.

The defending champ, Oksana Grishina will be back and one thing you can always count on from her is a passion filled routine. Oksana doesn’t just go through the motions when it comes to performing her routine. Key word here is performing. The hours of routine practice show in her performances. She usually fairs well in her routines but its the two-piece round that could hold her back from another title. She’ll face another Fitness International champion this week, Tanji Johnson is back and looking to regain the top spot. If Tanji is in shape, and I have no reason to believe she won’t be, she’ll be in the driver’s seat heading into the routine round. Then it will come down to Tanji performing a clean routine whether she takes the top spot again or not.

Don’t sleep on Bethany Wagner-Cisternino. Bethany has the best physique in Fitness and look for her to take the top spot in the two-piece round. If she nails her routine she could also give the champ a run for her money. Of course you can’t rule out Regiane Da Silva who leaped into the third place spot at the 2014 Olympia. Regina’s routines will leave you exhausted just watching. Those are my top four competitors and then after that it gets dicey.
