The Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, OH is one of the biggest fitness events of the year, and fans were shocked when Arnold Schwarzenegger announced that the expo—an event that was set to bring 250,000 people together—would be postponed due to concerns over the coronavirus.

It was a responsible, if somewhat last-minute, decision, but the good news is that the shows will go on. More specifically, the much-anticipated sports competitions, including the Arnold Classic bodybuilding and Strongman shows, are still taking place as scheduled Thursday through Sunday.

Athletes will be screened for symptoms, and spectators will be limited to attending Friday and Saturday night's IFBB finals events. For those who planned on attending any number of the competitions, you can still watch your favorite bodybuilding and Strongman athletes battle it out live on the Arnold Sports Festival's YouTube channel. Check out the full Arnold Sports Festival Schedule here to see when everything from weightlifting to tennis is taking place.
