Altrient Named Title Sponsor of The Pantheon Games in Miami
The Maker of the Best Nutritional Supplements on Earth Hosts Elite Athletes Vying for a Place Among the CrossFit Gods and Goddesses
LAS VEGAS, Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For 2,000 years, The Pantheon, a breathtaking temple dedicated to all gods has been located in Rome. However, on October 20-21st 2012, it will magically appear at the Miami Airport Convention Center (MACC), where Altrient, Inc. will be the title sponsor of the first annual CrossFit competition called The Pantheon Games.
If you think comparing a convention center to a temple and athletes to gods and goddesses is a bit of a stretch, you've probably never witnessed a CrossFit competition.
CrossFit, a global personal fitness phenomenon, has spawned a growing number of grueling local, regional, national and worldwide competitions. For the last six years, the CrossFit community has convened the CrossFit Games to determine nothing less than the fittest man and woman on Earth. In the true CrossFit tradition, the athletes do not know exactly what fitness challenges they are expected to master until shortly before each event. They must be fully prepared for anything and everything.
The Pantheon Games will add a wicked twist to the normal CrossFit insanity by including a couple of Olympic-style events on the slate of challenges. And while the MACC may be nowhere near as "breathtaking" as the Roman Pantheon, The Pantheon Games will likely leave competitors and spectators alike gasping for air. And the few surviving winners will rightfully claim the title of fitness gods and goddesses.
Altrient, Inc. is no stranger to the CrossFit community and competitions. The maker of high-performance nutritional supplements based in Henderson, Nevada, burst on the CrossFit scene in 2012, sponsoring several important competitive events including the CrossFit Regionals and the CrossFit Games. The company is working with individual CrossFit facilities (known as Boxes) to make its flagship products, Altrient™ C and Altrient™ ME™, available directly to members nationwide. Altrient is also the personal sponsor of elite CrossFit athlete, Cheryl Brost, one of the fittest women on Earth.
"CrossFit is an amazing culture that shares our founding values of health, passion and responsibility," stated Cindy Nachman, CEO of Altrient, Inc. "It's a perfect partnership that can benefit our company and CrossFitters everywhere.
"The Pantheon Games are yet another example of this wonderful spirit of competition and community in action for a good cause," Nachman continued. "All ticket proceeds will benefit Push America, which has been dedicated to serving people with disabilities for 35 years.
"The founders of The Pantheon Games feel a personal responsibility to help focus attention on the incredible things disabled persons can do rather than on what they can't do. This is one of the main reasons why Altrient is proud to be the title sponsor of The Pantheon Games."
"We are very excited to have Altrient as our title sponsor," said Bruno Garcia Co-Founder of the Pantheon Games. "Their desire to engage, educate, and encourage people to take control of their health aligns with our core values and mission. The Pantheon Games are all about ultimate physical and mental performance, and Altrient is a great complement to that."
"The Altrient team will be out in full force at The Pantheon Games," said Nachman. " We'll be reaching out to athletes, spectators and Box owners who would like to sample and learn about our products. We'll be hosting people in our Altrient VIP Lounge and, of course, Cheryl will be there."
Brost, Altrient's official spokesperson and resident "goddess," will compete in The Pantheon Games and award prizes to all contestants, including medals to the winners and top finishers in several categories.
"This will be my first major competition since the CrossFit Games in July," Brost stated. "I've given myself a chance to recover and I've resumed my training program. But it's time to get serious, and that means competing. The Pantheon Games will attract top-level athletes from throughout Florida and across the U.S. So, I'm really looking forward to the challenge."
