Nutrition and weight-loss firm AdvoCare International LP is adding Major League Lacrosse’s most valuable player to its roster of product endorsers.
The Texas company has announced that Greg Gurenlian, midfielder for the New York Lizards, has joined NFL stars Drew Brees and Jason Witten, NASCAR’s Trevor Bayne and other athletes and coaches using AdvoCare products. Gurenlian’s products of choice are AdvoCare’s Spark and Rehydrate drink mixes, as well as sports performance offerings Muscle Gain, Muscle Fuel and VO2 Prime.
“AdvoCare products partnered with my lacrosse training help me to prepare for playing the game I love,” said Gurenlian. “I am honored to be joining an organization that is passionate about health, wellness and sports.”
Gurenlian’s lacrosse skills have earned him multiple MLL All-Star awards, as well as the league’s 2015 Most Valuable Player award. Last year, he also was named FOAthlete of the Year by The FaceOff Academy, an honor determined by statistical success at the faceoff position. Gurenlian developed The FaceOff Academy, an elite lacrosse training organization, with fellow players Chris Mattes and Jerry Ragonese.
“Greg is a great addition to the AdvoCare family and I believe he will represent our company well,” said AdvoCare’s Vice President of Endorsements, Rob Graf. “Our ambassadors choose AdvoCare because of the positive impact the products have on their workouts, practice and overall performance.”
With the exception of Brees, who is compensated for his role as AdvoCare National Spokesperson, the company’s endorsers lend their support solely in exchange for AdvoCare products.
