Whitehall, PA (PRWEB) March 03, 2012
Protica has announced that Bill Kazmaier, three-time World’s Strongest Man and ESPN host, will be promoting his new bodybuilding product at the Arnold Classic Sports Festival this weekend, March First through the Fourth, 2012. Kazmaier’s Weight Gainer developed and manufactured by Protica Research, is the world’s first ready-to-drink, high protein meal replacement shot formulated to stimulate weight gain and muscle growth. Bill Kazmaier will be an announcer for bodybuilding and power lifting competitions at the Arnold along with promoting his Weight Gainer shot. Attendees of the Arnold can meet Bill at the GNC and Europa Booths throughout the weekend. Bill will be sampling his product and signing personalized autographs.
Bill Kazmaier is the former reigning World’s Strongest Man from 1980, 1981 and 1982. He has held several world records in power lifting. Most recently, he has been the commentator on ESPN for World's Strongest Man broadcasts. In 2006, Bill Kazmaier joined the Protica Research team as a sales liaison and industry consultant. Since that time Protica began developing a product that was formulated to meet Kazmaier’s nutritional requirements for strong man training.
Protica and Kazmaier’s new body building product, appropriately named Weight Gainer, is the world’s first shot-sized beverage intended to help people gain weight by consuming healthy, dense nutrition. Each serving of weight gainer contains 500 calories of dense nutrition including 50 grams of protein, 30 grams of complex carbohydrates, five grams of fiber, two servings of fruits and vegetables, and 27 vitamins and minerals in a 3.2 fluid ounce shot. Weight Gainer’s formulation allows consumers to consume the maximum amount of nutrients per fluid ounce. Kazmaier will be promoting his new product at this year’s Arnold Classic where he will also be an announcer during bodybuilding and power lifting competitions. Bill Kazmaier’s Weight Gainer will be distributed by both GNC and Europa nationwide.
The Arnold Classic Sports Festival is a sports and bodybuilding competition named after Arnold Schwarzenegger. Held in Columbus Ohio, the annual event features bodybuilding, boxing, and martial arts competitions. “We feel that the Arnold Classic is a great venue for Bill to promote his new Weight Gainer product,” says Jim Duffy, president and founder of Protica Research, the company that developed Weight Gainer for Bill Kazmaier.
