Team USANA Pilipinas: Young Filipino Athletes Endorses USANA Products

Wazzup Pilipinas!

What a wacky pose, especially for First Pinay World Pool Champ Bing Amit, who's posing like "I don't really know what". But what would you expect from such a young group of athletes with so much energy to keep them up and alive especially now that they are among the new brand endorsers of USANA products.

Personal care and high-quality supplements manufacturer USANA was proud to introduce to the members of the media 10 familiar faces in the world of Philippine sports that already made a name for themselves after earning several recognitions in their respective field of expertise.

Although only 7 personally made it to the press conference held at the USANA main office located at the Enterprise Tower in Makati, the other 3 were also mentioned during the presentation. The most recognizable for me was Taekwondo Hunk Japoy Lizardo because of his other brand endorsements giving him plenty of TV and print ad exposures.

The other athletes are Tin Patrimonio - the Venus of Women's Tennis, Janice Lagman - the Aphrodite of Taekwondo Poomsae, Aly Valdez - Women's Volleyball Phenom, Gaby dela Merced - The Racing Goddess, Niel Flores - Men's Volleyball Rising Star. Those who did not made it to the presscon were Abe Avena - Asian Senior Golf Champ, PJ Tierro - the Tennis Rising Star, and LA Tenorio - Team Gilas Pilipinas Power Point Guard.

USANA’s Athlete Program is the company’s way to boost the athleticism of teams and individuals worldwide while simultaneously inspiring everyone to pursue and sustain good health. World-renowned members of the USANA Athlete Program include Olympic gold medalist Tyler McGill (swimming), Olympic gold medalist Meaghan Mikkelson (hockey), and former WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (boxing), among others.

“It has always been our mission to inspire everyone and provide them the means to boost and sustain good health,” shares USANA Philippines General Manager Aurora “Duday” Gaston. “As we formally launch Team USANA Pilipinas, we aim to drive the well-being and competitiveness not only of Filipino athletes, but also the Filipinos in general, as they strive for success in their respective fields.”

USANA Philippines Pharmacist Erlind Genivieve "Gen" Blasurca was also there to give us some information about USANA products and its founder, Microbiologist and Immunologist Dr. Myron Wentz, who is also an expert in cellular study.

Team USANA Pilipinas
Officially opened last January 2009, USANA Philippines is the 13th USANA field office among the 19 globally. They are now almost on their 6th year in the country. Aside from their office in Makati, they also recently opened another office at the Abreeza Corporate Center in Davao last year. We were informed that 25% of their total Philippine business comes from Davao so the sales were really huge that they decided to open an office there and had two new Diamond Directors. For the past five years they have been growing really fast. In 2009, they started with only 300 Million on its first year and last year they already achieved their first 2 Billion. The food supplement for kids launched during the first quarter of the year is another source of their strategic growth.

I was chatting with Miss Duday before the presscon started and she mentioned that the athletes chosen as brand ambassadors are not receiving monetary compensation for their endorsements. They will only provide them with monthly supplies of USANA products that they can use to complement their other health and wellness training program for their respective sports.

This guarantees that the said endorsers are really users of the product who will proudly provide testimonials on how effective the products really are. In fact, most of them already experienced the changes and improvements in their lifestyle after taking the products in as shorts as two weeks, one of them even told us that the effects were immediate on him. They even stopped taking their previous products because of the more significant features of the USANA products which makes them better than the competition.

Sleepiness during the first days of taking the products were normal for everyone but that was only because their bodies were adjusting to the new substance. Everything went on smoothly afterwards and made them more energized and powered up for anything thrown at them.

The athletes mentioned that they have even recommended the products to their team mates and family members because they truly believe its effectiveness.
