MusclePharm to Celebrate GNC Opening with NFL Greats
DENVER, May 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — MusclePharm Corporation, a Nevada corporation and expanding U.S. nutritional supplement company, will be bringing some top NFL stars to Paramus, New Jersey on May 5, 6 and 13 to help celebrate the opening of General Nutrition Centers’ (GNC) newest location at 688 Route 17 North.
Fans will be able to meet New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck on May 5 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., retired Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer on May 6 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and current New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes on May 13 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Attendees will also be able to try free samples of MusclePharm’s MuscleGel and Assault nutritional supplements.
“This is a great opportunity for New York and New Jersey NFL fans to meet the guys they cheer for and find out how hard they work to be a part of professional football,” said Brad Pyatt, CEO of MusclePharm. “We’re also excited to share our MuscleGel and Assault products, which have been developed with the help of pro athletes.”
Toomer and Tuck were both part of the 2007 New York Giants team that snatched a perfect season away from the New England Patriots, winning Super Bowl XLII with a final score of 17 to 14. Tuck recorded two sacks and a forced fumble during the game, while Toomer led the Giants in receptions during the game, racking up six receptions for 84 yards.
Holmes joined the New York Jets in 2010 after four seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, including a game-winning catch in Super Bowl XLIII. During his first season with the Jets, Holmes developed a rhythm with quarterback Mark Sanchez that helped the team advance to the AFC Championship game.
For Pyatt, the relationship with these NFL standouts goes beyond product promotion. MusclePharm develops unique formulas for its nutritional supplements, based on scientific research and feedback from a variety of professional athletes.
“As a former NFL player myself, I know the challenges that pro football players face. It’s important for anyone who wants to compete at a top level to find products that actually work, and that’s why we aggressively research our formulas,” Pyatt said. “Our MuscleGel and Assault are built with the pros in mind, which is why they deliver excellent results for athletes and fitness enthusiasts at all levels.”
The event is one of many stops on the MusclePharm/GNC Athlete Tour, which visits GNC stores across the United States to bring fans closer to the pros. Details and a complete schedule of guest appearances can be found at http://www.gnc.com/family/index.jsp?categoryId=11433584.
