CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., Feb. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MYOS RENS Technology Inc. ("MYOS" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: MYOS), an advanced nutrition company and the owner of Fortetropin®, a proprietary bioactive composition derived from fertilized egg yolk that helps build lean muscle, announced an endorsement partnership with NBA superstar Aaron Gordon of the Orlando Magic. Gordon will serve as an endorser of Yolked®, our NSF Certified for Sport® branded sports nutrition product, to the millions of basketball fans across the world.
"I'm thrilled to be joining the Yolked family," said Gordon. "This is a special product that can help any athlete reach new heights. I'm excited to help tell that story."
"We're beyond excited to be working so closely with Aaron and his team," said MYOS CEO Joseph Mannello. "He's not only a fantastic athlete but an even better person– a perfect representative for our brand."
After being introduced to Yolked, Gordon and his team were immediately impressed by the depth of clinical research behind the product and its potential to unlock new levels of performance for athletes of all levels.
"Yolked is a very exciting, unique product that's been a terrific addition to Aaron's training program," said Gordon's personal trainer, Jordan White. "We're always looking for ways to enhance physical performance. To find an effective, all-natural, NSF-certified product like Yolked, is ideal."
Gordon will represent Yolked through a variety of media channels, including social media and traditional formats, and serve as a face of the brand. This is the first major athlete endorsement inked for Yolked, but will not be the last.
"Over the next few months, we plan to announce more additions to Team Yolked," Mannello said. "We're interested in athletes who embody the core principles of the brand: youthful, ascendant, unique, and positive."
In addition to adding Gordon to its stable of influencers, Yolked has also expanded its national college athletics marketing campaign via partnerships with nine (9) universities. Since the beginning of the year, Yolked has had a prominent presence in college basketball via TV-visible courtside LED signage seen on nationally televised games, introducing the brand to millions of fans across the country. Beyond the TV-visible signage, Yolked is featured on each athletic department's official website and official social media channels and is a staple at basketball home games as sponsor of nightly on-court fan contests and t-shirt toss promotions.
"College sports is a great place to grow the Yolked brand because of the tremendous youthful energy that exists on these campuses," Mannello said. "And beyond reaching young people, there are millions of health-conscious fans and alumni who would greatly benefit from Yolked. These are the audiences we want to reach."
In the fall, Yolked will be prominently featured throughout the college football season with in-stadium signage, on-site experiential activations, digital assets, social media, and more.
Gordon's deal with Yolked was negotiated by IMG on behalf of Yolked and WME on behalf of Gordon.
