Danish Fitness Show
This Saturday, the World Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation is coming to Tivoli for the Danish championship, so lock up your daughters (if you can’t trust them) or wives (likewise, or maybe you’re the one who secretly fantasises about being dominated) and come have a good leer at some body beautifuls … barely days after accusations that steroid use is rife in Denmark. Representing 16 different countries, those present will be competing in the categories of Diva Bikini, Diva Fitness, Male Fitness, Male Muscle, Figure, and Male Bodybuilding. Afterwards the night will conclude with American singer Shonie performing her new single. We can barely wait.
