CHANHASSEN, Minn. --(Business Wire)--
Time -The Healthy Way of Life Company�(NYSE: LTM),
today announced the BUILT
WITH CHOCOLATE MILK™ campaign as the official refuel beverage of
select athletic events and in club programs at Life Time. The program
will educate members and Life
Time Athletic Event participants on the post-exercise recovery
benefits of chocolate milk.
Trusted by athletes and backed by science, chocolate milk helps
individuals achieve their workout goals by helping them to recover after
a tough workout. More than 20 scientific studies including athletes from
sports spanning running, cycling and soccer support the advantages of
drinking chocolate milk after strenuous exercise. As part of a regular
recovery routine, it is an ideal way to help athletes refuel, rebuild
and reshape, with high quality protein scientifically shown to help
repair and rebuild muscles.
"From the seasoned cyclists in the Life Time Cycle Class and Cycle Club
to the Life Time Athleta Esprit de She race series, The BUILT WITH
CHOCOLATE MILK™ campaign educates athletes about the high-quality
protein in lowfat chocolate milk, which is scientifically shown to help
you refuel and recover after a strenuous workout," said Miranda Abney,
Marketing Director at the Milk Processor (News - Alert) Education Program, the group
behind the campaign. "We are proud to be partnered with Life Time in a
joint effort to help people achieve their personal athletic goals, which
can be built with hard work in the gm and a recovery routine that
includes chocolate milk."
Those participating in the BUILT
WITH CHOCOLATE MILK™ Studio Cycle Classes, the Life
Time Cycle Club, the Athleta
Esprit de She women's race series and the Leadville
Trail 100 Mountain Bike events will experience the benefits of
chocolate milk and help them stay motivated and finish strong. Lowfat
chocolate milk contains the right mix of carbohydrates and protein
scientifically shown to restore muscles quickly to their peak potential
and helps replenish what the body has lost following a workout-including
fluids and critical nutrients lost in sweat.
"Recovery plays an important role in the healthy, active lifestyles that
our Life Time members and athletes strive to achieve," said Al Iverson,
president, Life Time Athletic Events and Media. "The BUILT WITH
CHOCOLATE MILK™ campaign's passion for post-workout nutrition and
recovery is valuable education for athletes in the Life Time Community."
