Celsius Holdings, Inc. Debuts Trainer-Grade Healthy Pre-Workout Drink "CELSIUS HEAT™" at Mr. Olympia Fitness & Performance Expo in Las Vegas
Introduces two new CELSIUS HEAT™ flavors, new stylized "C" logo and "Proven" ad campaign with appearance by platinum recording artist and workout enthusiast Flo Rida
BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Celsius Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: CELH), maker of the leading global fitness drink, CELSIUS®, today announced that CELSIUS HEAT™, its new trainer-grade line, will make its first appearance at the Mr. Olympia Fitness & Performance Expo, September 14-17 in Las Vegas (booth #425).
The healthy and delicious, energy-charged pre-workout drink comes carbonated in 16-oz cans packed with 2,000mg of L-citrulline and 300mg of caffeine. It's designed to provide a supercharged workout for athletic trainers, body builders, military personnel and endurance athletes looking to optimize their training results. Like flagship brand CELSIUS®, CELSIUS HEAT™ is also a dietary supplement which contains the same proprietary thermogenic MetaPlus® formula, proven to accelerate metabolism, boost energy and burn body fat and calories when combined with exercise.
CELSIUS HEAT will receive massive support from high-profile fitness enthusiast and recording artist, Flo Rida, who will appear for the first time as CELSIUS HEAT Elite, Chief Ambassador. With this title, Flo Rida will lead the "HEAT Elite" – a hand-picked group of individuals who excel at athletic performance. In addition, he will be the face behind CELSIUS HEAT's new "Proven" ad campaign, which will also make its debut at the event. The rapping sensation puts a premium on health and fitness and says that he is 100 percent behind the new CELSIUS HEAT drink because it fuels his grueling concerts, tours and workouts. His songs top the charts at gyms across the country and he personifies the brand.
"Whatever I'm doing, I push myself to the limit to be my ultimate best. CELSIUS HEAT has made a difference in what I can deliver and I've never felt better. Its healthy energy keeps me at peak performance and I encourage my fans, athletes, performers and anybody who wants to take it to the next level and achieve their personal best to try it," says Flo Rida.
CELSIUS HEAT will serve up its new flavors, Strawberry Dragonfruit and Tangerine Grapefruit, at Mr. Olympia 2017, joining its popular lineup of Inferno Punch, Blueberry Pomegranate and Cherry Lime. CELSIUS HEAT was a natural hit in the fitness channel earlier this year and was quickly taken on by major gyms and local fitness centers throughout the country, including giants like Crunch, Gold's Gym, 24 Hour Fitness and LA Fitness. It is available through military channels and will retail nationwide at the Vitamin Shoppe retail stores and through the chain's website. It can also be purchased through eCommerce websites such as BodyBuilding.com and is expected to be in national convenience chains in 2018.
The brand will also debut a new, high-impact, modular booth specially designed for the show. It highlights the iconic "C" logo, features a special area for Flo Rida and the "Proven" campaign and is sampling friendly.
EVP of Sales and Marketing, Vanessa Walker, said, "We've experienced great success with our CELSIUS Originals and Natural Line extension, which are geared towards health-conscious consumers who strive to live fit, or have an active lifestyle. We wanted to up the ante and create a more powerful, larger product. CELSIUS HEAT is an energy category entrant with a supplement panel, which is proven and targets consumers looking to enhance their results."
"CELSIUS HEAT is the only trainer-grade pre-workout drink that gives a healthy, power-packed punch. We're excited to share this product with consumers and introduce Flo Rida as 'Chief HEAT Elite' brand ambassador. After trying CELSIUS HEAT, people will begin to understand why it's Flo Rida's healthy energy drink of choice," said VP of Fitness and Alternative Channels, Jon McKillop.
Media Advisory: Flo Rida will be at the CELSIUS booth #425 from 11:00am to 1:00pm on Friday, September 15, 2017.
