MusclePharm is the official nutritional supplement supplier for Major League’s baseball team; the Cincinnati Reds.
The partnership begins in 2011 and MusclePharm will work closely with the Cincinnati Reds and its Head Strength Coach, Matt Krause.
Matt Krause, Head Strength Coach of the Cincinnati Reds said, “We are proud to team with MusclePharm because its products are convenient, safe, effective and contain no banned substances. As a strength coach, I am always working to ensure our players reach their full potential and proper diet and supplements are an important part of that goal of reaching full potential. Musclepharm provides the proper supplements that are approved by NSF and Major League Baseball testing guidelines which provides me with the confidence I must have in the supplements our players are using.”
Before any Musclepharm products are available for professional sports teams they must be approved by the NSF Certified for Sport® Program. To meet the growing demands of athletes, coaches and all those concerned about banned substances in sports supplements, NSF International developed the NSF Certified for Sport® Program. This testing program minimizes the risk that a dietary supplement or sports nutrition product will contain any substance that is on one of the major sports organizations banned list. It also ensures that certified products contain the identity and quantity of dietary ingredients declared on the product label, but do not contain unacceptable quantities of unwanted contaminants for the recommended serving size.
MusclePharm’s President, Cory Gregory, commented, "We are very excited to become the nutritional supplement supplier for the Cincinnati Reds. We believe this relationship will expand our brand by introducing our nutritional supplements, which are 100% free of any banned substances, to a new consumer group.”
“We started Musclepharm to provide all athletes with the proper supplements that will enable them to reach their full potential with safe and effective supplements. We believe this partnership is only the beginning of opportunities for us to expand our brand into sports outside of our core MMA market."
