IFBB Pro Open Fitness at the Legion is Back!

Smashing 350HP Saves IFBB Pro Fitness at the Legion!

In this crazy year of COVID-19 constantly changing our plans, we had to cancel the IFBB Pro Open portion of the Legion Sports Fest. However, “Smashing 350 HP” a new series of athletic gear, proved that they are truly all about the athletes!

“Our team understands the athlete’s journey of pain, failure, and success. We will be there for the athletes”, Smashing 350HP owner Irma Valero explained.

IFBB Pro Fitness will now be included on Saturday, October 24 to kick off the NPC Legion Divisions!

Thank you Smashing 350HP! We all appreciate you! Smashing 350HP will be releasing their full line of athletic gear later this year.
