I had the opportunity once again to travel to India this year to attend India’s first Body Power Expo to promote my brand Cutler Nutrition & partner BPI Sports. As always my fans are great and very responsive, the promoter’s Nick, Ollie and their team took great care of me and showed me around. After the expo, I had some time and trained with an old friend Kris Gethin, it had been a couple of years since I last saw him it was good to catch up with him.
The Expo was full of fans, I signed many free autographs and took endless photos with fans and it was a pleasure because I really do cherish my fans. Ronny and I were the main attractions at the expo, it was great to see Ronnie as well, we had a little show down on stage and got to do a seminar together, it was like old times. I also had a chance to catch up with Gary Strydom who I looked up to growing up, he was one of the first Pro’s I met when I was 20 years old and he gave me a lot of valuable advice. I will never forget what he told me nor how he took the time to really talk to me it meant a lot. My stay in India was great, it was my third trip there and I am looking forward to attending next year, can’t wait to see all the great fans from India again.
From India I flew directly to Germany to attend the FIBO expo; I was able to participate in a short tour, visiting 4 nutrition stores before heading to FIBO. Now that Cutler Nutrition is being launched it was a great opportunity to visit with all that support the brand. I spent 3 days traveling city to city along with our partner Prometues. It was a great success and so many supported the event and that made it all worth it.
I arrived to FIBO in Cologne Germany by the end of the week, it was a lengthy 4 day expo but the fans there surpassed any Expo I have ever been to, I’ve never seen so many fans at once. I signed for 6 hours straight each day, I also visited some of my partners Smart Shake & FatGripz where I got to take more photos with fans. It was great hearing that my fans still want me to make a comeback. Maybe it will happen maybe it won’t but Thank you all for always believing in me.
Aside from all the work I had time to work out with Flex athletes Phil Heath and Flex Lewis after our workouts we got a bite to eat. I obviously consider these guys friends so it always makes it easy being away from home when you have good friends with you.
To sum up my trips they were both a great success and I want to take sometime and really thank all my fans for all the encouragement and support you guys give me. You all tell me how much I motivate you guys and how I help you guys get through that work out when you don’t think you can do it, well you guys do that for me times 100. You all mean the world to me and keep me going each and everyday, thank you to all of you for the unconditional support you give.
