About Jerai Classic:
For those you have recently entered the bodybuilding fan club, let us give you a quick brief on Jerai and Jerai Classic. Jerai Fitness Pvt. Ltd. is the biggest manufacturer and supplier of fitness and weight resistance training equipment in India. It was established in the year 1994 with the aim of boosting Indian bodybuilding with world class series of equipment and facilities. Today, Jerai is home to 3000 gyms across the nation and is trusted and relied upon by 5 crore enthusiasts.Since the past 15 years, Jerai has been trying to spread fitness awareness across the nation with the help of fitness centers, seminars, events and promotional campaigns. They have been sponsoring athletes from India competing at some of the biggest bodybuilding events like Mr. Universe, Mr. World, Mr. India championships etc. However, instead of using a platform, Jerai finally decided to create its own platform – Jerai Classic. It joined hands with the nation’s biggest bodybuilding gathering – Body Power Expo to make Jerai Classic an exclusive event.
The first ever Jerai Classic was held in Jan 2015 with the Body Power Expo 2015 in Mumbai. The event became an instant hit due to its supreme level of competition and performance. At Jerai Classic 2016, the bar reached even higher as contenders from all across the nation came to bag the title and things will get even better this year. Jerai is presented by ESN (Evolution Sports Nutrition) that is India’s biggest nutrition supplement brand.
Jerai classic gathered all the potential athletes from across the nation and brought them on one stage. The efficient team at Jerai travels all across the nation, each year, to pick up the talented ones without any bias. The journey to reach Jerai Classic is a tedious one for the contenders. All the aspiring candidates (men and women both) have to compete at the zonal levels which are conducted at selected cities across the nation. The winners from all the zonal competitions then move onto the finale to compete for the Jerai Classic title at Jerai Cage – Body power Expo.
