LOS ANGELES—May 16, 2019World Gym International, the iconic global brand for bodybuilding and seriously fun fitness, is adding a new nutrition platform to its thriving and rapidly expanding World Gym Athletics, known for its #FitnessTruth mantra. World Gym Athletics is an exclusive, studio-style, small group training program that combines the best of HIIT, Olympic lifting and functional training. Now, the most complete, balanced, inspirational, and fun training program in the world will also include integrated nutrition for athletes and coaches, powered by Dymatize, a global leader in athletic nutrition. The first-of-its-kind partnership for the industry features elements for athletes, gym & studio owners and coaches.

Dymatize and World Gym Athletics will offer a nutrition certification for coaches, created in partnership with Dr. Robert Wildman, Chief Science Officer at Dymatize and Doug Katona, COO and Director of Training & Operations at World Gym. Through the certification, coaches will learn about scientifically proven nutrition results for athletes of all abilities and levels. Once certified by World Gym Athletics and Dymatize, Coaches will be able to integrate nutrition content, plans and elements into their daily, weekly and monthly programming matrix at their gyms.

“You can’t build a house without a strong foundation and you can’t build the most comprehensive training program in the industry without nutrition education and programs,” said Doug Katona, COO and Director of Training & Education for World Gym. “Dr. Rob and his team at Dymatize share our vision to create a new nutrition and training paradigm.”

“World Gym Athletics and Dymatize share a science-based approach. We know what works and how to do it based on the most current scientific research in fitness and performance nutrition matched with consumer insight,” said Dr. Robert Wildman, Chief Science Officer at Dymatize. “By working hand-in-hand on nutritional education for coaches, we’ll help more people achieve their fitness and athletic goals faster and sustain a healthier life for the long-term.”

Dymatize will be providing partner support for all World Gym Athletics events including education, certification and leadership training. In addition, Dymatize will be supporting and sponsoring the World Gym Education and Training Team.
