Nutrasumma Spokesperson to Compete in Spike TV Reality Series

Phoenix, AZ – Nutrasumma is proud to announce the Spike TV debut of its spokesperson, Brendan Tierney, on the new reality series, “Fight Master: Bellator MMA.”  Airing Wednesday, June 19th at 10pm/9c, the show brings together thirty-two of the world’s best welterweight fighters as they compete for a spot in the Bellator MMA Tournament and $100,000.

 

Raised in Queens, New York, Tierney served in the U.S. Navy for eight years before beginning to train in MMA in 2000, and fighting professionally in 2006.  Seeing it as a great opportunity for exposure, he jumped at the chance to interview for the reality show in December 2012.  His military background, dance and modeling experience, age, and fight record of 10-4, none of which went to decision, set him apart from more than 10,000 eager applicants.

 

While his extensive training is a key factor in his success thus far, Tierney contributes much of his success to a proper diet and nutritional supplements.  Three years ago, he received a wake-up call from one of his coaches who informed him that what Tierney thought was a healthy diet, was actually far from it.

 

“My diet has been an interesting journey,” said Tierney.  “I never really gave much thought to what was really good and bad.  I just assumed if it said it was healthy on the label, it must be.”

 

Since, he has removed gluten, dairy, and all processed foods from his daily intake.

 

“Now that I’ve eliminated these negatives from my diet, my weight has evened out, my energy levels have improved, and my understanding of overall health has, and will continue to, improve my life,” said Tierney

 

After his coach introduced him to pea protein, Tierney quickly realized how vital it was in his day-to-day life, allowing him to maintain his energy and weight.

 

In search of new products, Tierney caught wind of Nutrasumma.  He now uses Nutra Summa’s various pea proteins, “Greens,” zinc magnesium aspartate (ZMA), and cod liver oil.  He raves about the quality of their products, using fifteen of them daily and always finding a spot for new products in his regimen.  However, it’s not only their products that he’s impressed with.

 

“Their standards and philosophy locked me in,” he said.  “By taking Nutra Summa’s products, it has improved my life as an athlete and opened my eyes to the value of integrity within the supplement world.”

 

Help support Tierney in his quest to victory starting Wednesday, June 19th at 10pm/9c on Spike TV and follow him on Twitter through  @Tiny_Shorts.

Our Newest Client @NutraSumma ‘s Spokesperson will be Fighting on @SpikeTV

Brendan Tierney

Brendan Tierney, Community Awareness Specialist and official spokesperson for Nutrasumma, will be fighting on SpikeTV and Bellator’s MMA first season of Fight Master. It will air Wednesday June 19th, 10/9c on Spike TV.  He was informed that SpikeTV was having interviews for this back in December of 2012 and he thought it would be a great opportunity. The best part about this was they had over 10,000 applicants and he made it the final 32. It was definitely a tough competition to get selected but Brendan felt that the following attributes helped him the most. He’s a military veteran, has previous modeling experience, previous dance experience (specifically ballet), he’s 38 and the average age of others were low-mid 20’s, his record in previous fights are 10-4 and none of his fights went to a decision.

 

He started training for MMA in 2000 and his first fight was August of 2006. His training centered on the many facets of Mixed Martial Arts:

 

  • Striking – boxing and kickboxing.
  • Wrestling – positional awareness, angles, takedowns and takedown defense.
  • Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)/submission grappling.
  • Strength and conditioning.
  • Diet and supplements, etc.

 

As much as the above training was key for him none of this would be possible without a proper diet and supplements. Until three years ago he never felt like his diet was poor but that quickly changed. He was drinking a gallon of milk every three days, consuming bagels, sandwiches with lots of processed meats, microwaveable foods and chicken mac and cheese which was his daughter’s favorite thus his too. He also ate out regularly. His fluid intake included sports drinks that were loaded with sugar and alcohol 2-3 times a week.  Brenden met with his wrestling coach who got on him about his diet and he was quickly made aware of what he should eat and drink versus what he was.  He now steers away from gluten, all processed foods and dairy.

 

As much as the diet was key for his performance so were the supplements he is now taking. Pea Protein had been brought up several times to him; however, he was unaware of the positive impact it would have on him and did not see the value until recently. After using NutraSumma’s Pea Protein, his weight became more consistent, which is key to him maintaining energy levels and performance in a sport based on weight classes. After enjoying the benefits of the Pea Protein he was eager to see all the products that they offer to add value to his efforts.

 

We hope you watch his performance on June 19th.

Good Luck Brendan!!!

Ride The Dougie Shoot

It was a success! No one got arrested by airport personnel, ran over by cars around the fountain or hit by any golf balls!

We’ve talked to all our clients about content lately. PICTURES and VIDEO TRUMP COPY EVERYDAY! If you do not have images and video for your website and/or social platforms, we highly recommend you get on that! It does not have to be a huge expense and can add so much to your online efforts. Photo editing is a very important part of finalizing the images you use so be sure you are working with a knowledgeable photographer. We have someone if you’re in the market….

Take a look at some of our behind the scenes photos of the shoot and stay tuned to see the final images on the website soon!

 

Thanks to AT Imagery, we were able to shoot at 4 different locations successfully! Definite thanks to Best Western Sun Dial for providing us the rooms and back drop for our early morning shoot. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Best-Western-Sundial/174925872525879?sk=wall. And thank you to all our wonderful models! You guys were troopers in the heat!

Event Marketing and Social Media Promotion

This past Friday was The Boys & Girls Club of Metro Phoenix’s Big Event. HUGE success! But one group of women I met there mentioned something interesting to me. I asked how they heard about the event. They said they actually didn’t find out until 2 days before from a phone call and has to rearrange their schedules to make it! Then one said something that has stuck with me over the weekend, “If it were on Facebook I would’ve seen it and planned better.”

Is social media effective in event planning?

Everyone knows how to post on Facebook about an event and invite their friends (hopefully by now you all do). But what about creating separate event pages for large events? Would that help? Do you think it would increase the awareness of the event at all?

Well we say YES, it would. From a business owner’s stand point or from someone who runs a fan page (for whatever purpose), you realize that there are people on there that you may not be personal friends with on your profile, however they LIKE your business and follow your posts. In that case, posting about the event on your business page would be a big benefit. But where do you direct them? If you set up a separate event page in advance, you can stock it full of photos from previous events, announce sponsors or auction items, bands or entertainment that would be there, etc. By having this event page, you can communicate with people who like the event from the actual BRAND holding the event, not an individual just asking their friends to come.

So in response to our mystery woman’s comment, yes it should have been on Facebook. That way you would’ve seen what you were in store for from last year’s photo albums and this year’s posts. Sorry Mystery Lady, we’ll get on that for The Big Event 2012. Awesome suggestion!

AMG Presents at Microsoft Store on Social Media

It was a SUCCESS! Thanks to all of those who came out to see Lindsey speak on social media at the Microsoft Store this past week. There were some interesting questions and great discussions. Some of the biggest points made:

  • SOCIAL MEDIA is NOT the “End All Be All” for your marketing plan. It should be a spoke on the wheel, not the entire wheel itself
  • In most cases, social media should not replace your website, rather redirect to it
  • “If You Build It, That Doesn’t Mean They’ll Come”… Users don’t just find you a like you, it requires efforts on the business side to go and FIND them
  • Yes, you should ALWAYS have a business fan page in addition to your person page. DO NOT promote your business in between personal posts
  • Social Media does aid in website SEO and ranking results. Businesses that have a page over those who do not will usually have better organic ranking results
