According to a press release, former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a first-of-its-kind partnership with MusclePharm Corporation, a nutritional supplement company promoting active lifestyles. Schwarzenegger is a Mr. Universe, Mr. World and Mr. Olympia title holder who has won more world bodybuilding titles than anyone in history.
MusclePharm will launch the Arnold Series, an exclusive line of new nutritional supplements developed by Schwarzenegger and their own scientific team.
“I’ve been on a crusade to promote fitness for more than four decades,” said Arnold Schwarzenegger. “That has led to the largest health and fitness convention in the world, six books, seminars all over the globe, and visits to all 50 states as chairman of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness. This vitamin and supplement line is the next step. After meeting with the MusclePharm team, learning about the company, and spending time with the founders, I knew they were the perfect partners to start a line of nutritional supplements and continue promoting fitness around the world. Their passion for sports nutrition and science fits perfectly with my mission to help everyone discover the benefits of health and nutrition. I’m excited to partner with MusclePharm on the exclusive Arnold Series and develop this line of nutritional supplements that not only carry my name but also represent my lifelong commitment to fitness.”
The Arnold Series product line will initially launch with eight supplements supporting the four fitness pillars: performance, power & strength, nutrient support and recovery. It will be available domestically and internationally at health and nutrition stores as well as online retailers in September 2013.
Founded in 2008 by former NFL player Brad Pyatt, MusclePharm is a healthy lifestyle company that develops and manufactures nutritional supplements that address active lifestyles, including muscle building, weight loss and maintaining general fitness through a daily nutritional supplement regimen. It was named Brand of the Year in 2012 by Bodybuilding.com. The products are formulated through a six-stage research process using the expertise of leading nutritional scientists.
The different supplements appear to contain needed nutrients by the active body for a reasonable price. While many superstars place their face and name on products for the money, Schwarzenegger seems to be doing the right thing for the love of doing the right thing. It is doubtful this man would help develop a nutritional supplement that was anything less than 100 percent safe and effective.
Physical fitness is important to Schwarzenegger, who came to America for a better life by way of a small town called Thal, Austria. The former governor maintains his physically fit body through exercise, diet and nutritional supplements.
