Linwoods, producers of the internationally acclaimed Linwoods Health Food range, is stepping into the ring as the Official Health Food Partner of Michael Conlan, the Commonwealth, European and recently crowned World Boxing Champion.
Joining the champ at a training session at the Ulster Boxing High Performance Centre at Ulster University Jordanstown Campus, Sarah Shimmons, Head of Marketing, Linwoods commented: “To be in partnership with Michael Conlan, one of Ireland’s most successful sportsmen, and the first Irish boxer to lift a World Boxing Championship title, is a fantastic endorsement of our Health Food product range.
“In recent years we have expanded our business to create our internationally acclaimed range of healthy seeds and berries, which today deliver accessible nutritional benefits to markets right around the world.
“Very few of those who enjoy our products could even aspire to a fitness regime like Michael’s, but today all sorts of people want to enjoy healthier, more active lifestyles and a healthy diet is a great starting point.
“For those who love their sport, nutritious, natural foods are at the heart of building the strength and stamina vital for success, which is why so many of our sportspeople have already chosen to make Linwoods seeds and berries an integral part of their training regime.”
Launching the partnership, Michael Conlan said: “They say there is no glory in training, but without training, there is no glory. That – and the passion I have for my chosen sport – is what keeps me in the gym. But there are many elements to an athletes’ training regime, one of which is a perfectly-balanced diet. Choosing the right nutritional ‘fuel’ is vital to fuelling success in the ring, which is why I am delighted to partner with Linwoods, making their healthy seeds and berries range an important part of my training regime.”
Sarah concludes: “I would like to congratulate Michael on his many world class sporting achievements. He is an inspiration and role model to all those sportsmen and women whose ambition it is to be the very best that they can be. All of us at Team Linwoods are thrilled to be backing Michael, and we wish him every success in attaining his ultimate dream when he goes for gold.”
