What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

What is the Arnold Classic?

The Arnold Classic is a professional bodybuilding athletic competition. Co-founders Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jim Lorimer created the event in 1989 seeking to build a sporting event that helped other athletes conquer their fitness dreams. Lorimer served in the Navy and FBI, and then went on to team up with Schwarzenegger to promote the first Arnold Classic.

The former governor is a multi-talented hunk with skills in acting, fitness, business, and politics. With an impressive resume, Schwarzenegger gives opportunities to other athletes wishing to accomplish their fitness goals and aspirations. The competition grew over the years to become a sports festival with 80 different sporting events.

The Arnold Classic is held at the Battelle Grand Ballroom in the Columbus Convention Center on March 2, 2019. The Arnold Classic is part of the Arnold Sports Festival, a four-day event that is considered one of the most prestigious bodybuilding competitions in history.

Originally from the island of Curacao, Winklaar finished 4th in the Arnold Classic USA in 2018 and achieved 1st place in the Arnold Classic Australia 2018.  Known as “The Beast”, his shredded physique is a crowd pleaser affording him so many titles. He is also recognized for his muscle symmetry.
