Life Chiropractic College West celebrated the vitalistic unification of chiropractic and sports fitness during the ICA Sports Symposium and Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic. President, Dr. Ron Oberstein and Drs. Mark Zeigler and Sean Drake attended the action-packed weekend on March 3rd and 4th in Columbus, Ohio.
The International Chiropractors Association has sponsored the Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic for 25 years. Dr. Jack Barnathan, former chiropractor to many body builders, originally proposed the idea to the actor, fitness buff, and former California Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to create an event that unified chiropractic and sports fitness. Held in conjunction with the ICA Sports Symposium, the Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic was born. It is currently one of the largest fitness events in the country.
Life West has been a major sponsor for the ICA Symposium for many years. On Friday, March 3rd, Dr. Oberstein was able to present to the attending DCs and showcase the wonderful things happening on the Life West campus. The following day, Dr. Sean Drake showcased the Life West Sports Performance Institute (SPI).
The Life West crew created wonderful relationships with the attendees and speakers. One relationship in the making is with Lee Haney. Mr. Haney is an eight-time Mr. Olympia champion and is also a huge chiropractic supporter. He was excited to meet our Life West Tribe and he will be presenting at the college in a SPI Human Performance class in the near future.
Dr. Ron Oberstein was extremely excited about the relationships built at the events. He notes, “The ICA Sports Symposium and Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic was a very successful weekend for Life West. We were enthusiastically received and appreciated for all of our support. We made many new friends along with reuniting with old friendships. It’s national events like these that distinguish Life West from any other chiropractic college in the country.”
With the amazing connections that were made over the weekend – don’t be surprised if Arnold, “The Terminator” graces the Life West campus sometime in the near future.
