BPI SPORTS Awarded at 2012 Arnold Sports Festival as this years GNC Rising Star

BPI Sports, a leading sports nutritional supplement company, was awarded with GNC's 2011 Rising Star Award at the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio on Friday, March 3, 2012. The Rising Star Award identifies a brand or product that is relatively new to GNC stores and demonstrates outstanding sales growth within the year. BPI partnered with GNC in September 2011 and has since set a growth track not easily rivaled.

"We are honored to be presented with such a prestigious award," stated James Grage, Vice President of BPI Sports. "We are very appreciative of our great partnership with GNC and expect nothing but ongoing success. Our business continues to grow in every facet and at an unheralded pace, including the addition of IMAGE SPORTS, a brand new line, developed and marketed exclusively for GNC.”

When asked what separates IMAGE SPORTS from BPI, Grage responded, “IMAGE is a high-end sports nutrition line, that is heavily advertised and promoted but only available in GNC. We have many exciting things scheduled for 2012 that are sure to keep us in the lead of the ever-growing sports nutrition industry, as well as strengthening our commitment to our consumers and our partnership with GNC.”

In just over two years, BPI Sports has emerged as perhaps the fastest growing, most influential and hardcore sports supplement company to date. Delivering a wide range of products with specialized formulas, BPI has a major in-store and online presence both domestic and abroad. High-demand products such as 1.M.R™, the original Ultra Concentrated Pre-Workout powder, continue to lead the pack, while new and innovative products such as BLOX™ break new ground and redefine existing categories. BLOX™ is the first real breakthrough in the Amino Acid category in several decades. Focusing on product development, brand awareness and consumer support, BPI has carved out a reputation as the brand that many turn to, including bodybuilders and professional athletes.

Headquartered in Hollywood, FL, BPI is the fastest growing Sports Nutrition company, both domestic and abroad, with products in popular categories such as weight loss, muscle building and athletic performance. For more information on BPI SPORTS please visit or on facebook at
