“I am as hungry today as I was when I was 20 years old”, says Arnold.
And he has displaced Donald Trump!
But before you get your engines running, this has nothing to do with the upcoming US Presidential elections. At a press conference held at Docklands in Melbourne on March 18th, Arnold confirmed his replacement for Trump on the US version of Celebrity Apprentice TV show.
“I never thought I would be a part of a TV reality show and I really like the show and I jumped at the opportunity,” beamed Arnold.
Currently promoting the 2nd Australian Arnold Classics in Melbourne, Arnold is much more excited for fitness than just announcing the TV show or confirming another Terminator sequel.
“This has always been my dream, since I finished with body building competitions (to) not just lift weights by myself but to lift the entire sport of body building, promote health and fitness around the world,” said Arnold.
After touching down in Melbourne, Arnold also politely asked people to not look like garbage cans. “We are encouraging them (people) to do something – get off the couch, don’t be a couch potato and just sit there and watch movies, except if they are my movies!”
“We also have to teach people to eat well because what you put in your body is what you are going to look like”, he added.
In response to obesity problems facing Australia, he quipped that “we have as many gymnasiums and health clubs as grocery stores and supermarkets… I remember that 40, 50 years ago when I was traveling around the world I could not find gyms. Now every hotel has a gym. It is really amazing.”
The IFFB Arnold Classic have been around since 1989, and is the biggest event of its kind – this year marked the 28th Anniversary of the Arnold Classics Sports Festival in Ohio.
The fitness festival runs from from 18th march to 20th March 2016. For more information, visit http://arnoldclassic.com.au/.
