DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - May 30, 2013) - MusclePharm Corporation (
Steve Blechman, CEO and Chairman of Advanced Research Press, the publisher of FitnessRx for Men, commented, "Cory Gregory made a great cover model for our July 2013 publication and he is living proof that dads and successful entrepreneurs can stay in top shape! Cory is an inspiration to many and it was a pleasure having him and MusclePharm be a big part of the issue. We look forward to working together again moving forward in the future."
The issue features Gregory and MusclePharm in three separate articles, each of which is accented in lime green -- the same color as MusclePharm's unique and eye-catching "MP" logo. There is a sports supplement review titled, "MusclePharm - The 'Bizzy Diet' Stack"; an article titled, "Get Jacked! The 1,000 Rep Workout"; and lastly, an article titled, "The Ultimate Ripped Abs and Diet Workout."
The center of the issue features a large cutout two-sided poster -- one side having a pictorial of Gregory demonstrating his abdominal workout while the other side is a powerfully presented MusclePharm advertisement highlighting three of MusclePharm's leading products: AMINO 1, ASSAULT and SHRED Matrix.
Brad Pyatt, MusclePharm's co-Founder & CEO, stated, "Cory being featured on the cover of one of the nation's largest fitness publications further demonstrates that at MusclePharm, we live the lifestyle. As one of MusclePharm's most important assets, Cory maintains a social media connection with, and is a mentor to, more than 700,000 fitness enthusiasts around the world, many of whom use MusclePharm products. Being on the cover of Fitness Rx solidifies our credibility with our customer and fan base and provides tremendous exposure for the award winning MusclePharm brand."
