Gaspari Nutrition®, a globally distributed sport nutrition company, awarded Jay Matias of Astoria, New York ‘First Prize’ in the mixed martial arts portion of the 2012 Train with Team Gaspari contest. Jay is no ordinary mixed martial arts fan. He’s only 22 but trains out of Aziz Nabih's Sitan Gym located in Queens, NY as an accomplished professional Muay Thai fighter. Ironically, while professionally sanctioned mixed martials arts is banned in the state of New York, Jay has actually competed in Madison Square Garden as a professional Muay Thai fighter, scoring a quick and decisive knockout victory in the first round. Currently, Jay is training for his next fight which will take place in Thailand on 12/30/12. Team Gaspari wishes him the best.

Frankie Edgar is also in training camp right now preparing for a Superbowl Weekend match with reigning UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo. He is on a strict training and diet regimen and is an avid user of Gaspari Nutrition products. Edgar and Matias’ training sessions were fueled by the all new Aminolast –Recovery and Endurance BCAA Superfuel, as well as Glycofuse – Rapid Performance & Recovery Supercarb. The two new category defining products have been heralded by athletes around the world as some of the best money can buy. If you know anything about Frankie Edgar, he’s become a Gaspari loyalist because the products really work.

The day was full of excitement and was truly a hands-on “real deal” training day in NYC at the world famous Renzo Gracie Academy.
