MONROE, Conn., Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- GAT touts the slogan "Compete Harder." It's a work ethic that fitness-model-turned-film star Julien Greaux has lived by since an early age. Poised to redefine the modern-day action hero, Julien will appear in GAT's new worldwide marketing campaigns.
"From head to toe, Julien embodies GAT's 'Compete Harder' slogan. He came to this country with little more than the clothes on his back and transformed himself into a face of fitness. Behind his chiseled, athletic physique is an openness, gritty determination, and life story that we all can relate to. We look forward to fueling Julien's physical training and helping him make his entrance into Hollywood an intensely successful one."
Charles Moser, GAT CEO & President.
"I've long been inspired by GAT. Like me, they have climbed steep mountains on the road to success. They realize that nothing great comes without a great deal of hard work. I'm honored to be a part of a distinguished team that creates iconic products and employs passionate people with the same competitive warrior spirit that I've lived by."
At nine years of age, Julien Greaux decided he wanted to be an action movie star. He was born in Brittany, France, and raised in St. Barth, a small island in the French West Indies not known for lights, cameras, or much action. Fortunately, Julien had a warrior spirit. He began studying martial arts and chiseling his body with weights. Julien practiced judo, Thai boxing and Shotokan karate for over twenty-five years.
In 2002, armed with razor-sharp muscles and fighting skills to match, Julien flew to Los Angeles, California, ready for battle. His English was poor at best and he knew not a soul. With only a few hundred dollars to his name, Julien initially stayed in a hostel, working for the manager to pay for his bed and strictly rationing his meals. For two years, he shared a bedroom with six roommates.
Julien also had no experience in acting. Yet there he was in Los Angeles, the epicenter of cinematic competition. Still, he had his warrior spirit. He knew that he might lose some battles, but with dogged persistence he could win the war.
Today, Julien Greaux is on top of the fitness world, having appeared on countless magazine covers circulated around the globe. He just wrote, produced, raised funds for, and starred in his own short film, Parabellum. Directed by Michael Giorgi and Pasquale Pagano, it will appear at film festivals starting this spring. Now he has signed with one of the fastest-growing sports nutrition brands in North America, GAT. Julien says "the timing is perfect" to make his Hollywood ascent and redefine the modern action hero.
