Power Your Adventure with the new NOW Energy Bar(TM) from television personality, Phil Keoghan -- host of "The Amazing Race(TM)."
For adventure TV personality Phil Keoghan, "energy" is something that you can never fall short on when you live every day of your life to the fullest. Actually, one may say by looking at Phil's globetrotting endeavors over these past twenty years that he is somewhat an authority on "energy," or the need for it. Nutritionally speaking, Phil's demanding schedule can provide its share of pitfalls. That's why Phil turned to the experienced counsel of Sports Nutrition experts, Europa Sports, to provide guidance toward the right manufacturing and marketing partners in bringing Phil's Energy Bar to market. A product that could become a consumer favorite for great tasting energy bars, the NOW Energy Bar is an All-Natural, High-Protein, Gluten-Free nutrition bar.
"NOW stands for No Opportunity Wasted, my personal philosophy for living each day as if it were your last," says Phil Keoghan. "I've been filming around the world for more than 20 years, working in over 100 countries, and one of the biggest challenges I face is making sure I get the right nutrition. After searching the planet for the perfect bar, I found the answer in an all natural high-protein bar made with Manuka Honey, found in my homeland New Zealand, a natural preservative with special medicinal properties and jam-packed with high potency energy that will power any adventure."
Phil Keoghan, is represented by IMG Worldwide Licensing, a division of IMG Sports & Entertainment, and worked closely with IMG in connection with his cross-country bicycle "Ride Across America" last year. Phil is currently involved with IMG to develop a comprehensive consumer products program, which includes the NOW Energy Bar relationship with Europa Sports.
The NOW Energy Bar will be hitting the market in May 2010. Europa Sports is leading with an exclusive launch thru Amazon.com -- America's largest online retailer, and then through their extensive network of nationwide customers including all major bike shops and retail outlets.
"Europa Sports has been really excited about working exclusively with Phil Keoghan on the NOW Energy Bar. Aside from being a fan of the show, it's Phil's Carpe diem (Seize the Day) philosophy that really hits home for me. With No Opportunity Wasted as his mantra, we know that we have a partner with an equally strong work ethic as our own," states Europa Sports CEO, Eric Hillman.
