FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monterey Park, Calif. March 10, 2021 – Monterey Park NUTRISHOP® store owner/franchisee Ronnie Villanueva has always had a passion for helping student and college athletes. That passion led him to connect with Coach John Mosley, head coach for the East Los Angeles College (ELAC) Huskies men’s basketball team, six years ago. A sponsorship was formed and NUTRISHOP Monterey Park became the team’s “coach” for proper nutrition, body composition testing and sports nutrition supplementation. Little did Villanueva know then that the partnership would lead to him being the only sponsor for the team while Netflix filmed ELAC’s 2019-2020 season for its latest critically acclaimed sports documentary series offering, Last Chance U: Basketball. The show airs today. Watch the trailer here.
“We’re so honored at NUTRISHOP Monterey Park to be able to help the Huskies with their nutrition and teach them how to eat for fuel and maximum recovery,” said Villanueva, who has owned NUTRISHOP Monterey Park for nine years. “We’re always rooting for them and it’s so incredible that Netflix picked them up for ‘Last Chance U: Basketball.’ We couldn’t be prouder.”
Since the NUTRISHOP sponsorship began, ELAC has gone to the playoffs every year. Villanueva said he’s really thrilled to be able to show off what NUTRISHOP can do for sports teams when it comes to dialing in the athletes’ nutrition and keeping them on track so they can be the best athletes they can be. He also donates the team’s supply of PRO7EIN Synthesis™ (protein powder blend derived from seven top-quality sources), Glumatic™ (glutamine), and Betabol™ so they could fill in the gaps of their nutrition with the right products to keep them playing strong.
“I can’t wait to binge-watch this show on Netflix. I already know how it’s going to end, but I’m not saying a word about it,” Villanueva said. “You’ll just have to watch for yourself.”
