“Our science based supplement solutions are designed, tested and proven effective by doctors, scientists and nutritionists,” says Chad Backstrom, Senior Brand Manager – CLICKS Healthcare.  “We use only the highest quality ingredients, manufactured under the strictest GMP quality controls. All GNC products undergo as many as 150 quality and safety checks to ensure maximum Quality, Potency and Purity.  GNC is passionately creating a world of health, wellness and performance solutions inspiring everyone, everywhere, every day to LIVE WELL.

“We’re excited to team up with an event that encourages healthy living and getting outdoors,” continues Backstrom.  “The Fedhealth IMPI Challenge gives us the perfect opportunity to speak to likeminded individuals who strive to Live Well.  The event is about good and clean (but muddy) fun for the entire family.  This is something that GNC can really buy into as these customers embody our brand values.  IMPI Warriors can look forward to enjoying pre and post-race recovery drinks (including pre-workout protein and branched-chain amino acid/BCAAs), water point activations, free recovery massages and exciting giveaways including GNC prize hampers. We look forward to being part of the Fedhealth IMPI Challenge experience in October and November.”
