With over 100 troops in attendance, Mr. Olympia Phil Heath also discussed his workout routine with the troops as he prepares for the 2012 Mr. Olympia this September and showcased the RYU Men’s Spring Line that made its retail debut in a Marine Corps Base store in the Marine Corps Exchange at Camp Pendleton.


"Going to camp Pendleton and meeting the many men and women there was an awesome experience,” said 2011 Mr. Olympia Phil Heath. “I was greeted with open arms and was able to later chat with many about health, fitness, RYU’s apparel and their upcoming deployments. I was easily motivated by these guys, and thought their commitment to excellence was unparalleled. I hope that along with RYU we can do more of these appearances as it was truly a time to remember.”


Inspired by the dedication of the athlete to the one-thousand-year-old sport of Martial Arts, RYU’s premium performance line embodies the art of the sport and places emphasis on respect, strength, honor and sustainability as the foundation of all their apparel and products.  Made to withstand the toughest training regimens like those of our troops, all of the RYU apparel items and products are comprised of up to 90% organic and/or recycled materials while achieving the performance attributes desired by today’s premiere athlete.


Apparel now available at Camp Pendleton’s Marine Corps Exchange includes various performance items from RYU’s Men’s Line including the Ashigaru Performance Shorts, Tanto Compression Tops, Discipline Training Tees and various T-Shirts.


“It was an honor to shake the hands of our troops and such a great experience,” added RYU Brand Ambassador, Rocky Bice.  “It was great to watch Phil interact with the troops talking about training, competitions, and how RYU fits within their lifestyle along with watching them shop the RYU racks.  On behalf of RYU, I want to thank the troops for all they do for us and for allowing us the opportunity to come on base.”
