GU Energy Labs Partners with Press Forward for PR Initiatives

February 24, 2022

BERKELEY, Calif. /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – GU Energy Labs and Press Forward PR are thrilled to announce that they’re partnering to help bring the iconic sports nutrition brand’s mission and message to a wider range of athletes. Founded in 1993, GU Energy Labs produces energy gels, chews, drink mixes, waffles, and supplements intended to help athletes better fuel their endeavors.

“Feeding the need to move is the guiding principle at GU and we want to inspire as many people as we can into an active lifestyle,” said Christian Lepley, VP of Marketing at GU. “We look forward to working with Press Forward PR to bring our products to athletes of all kinds, foster an inclusive community, and protect the places we play.”

GU Energy Labs created the first energy gel as a convenient, easily-digestible fuel source for ultra-endurance runners in the early 1990s. Since then, their focus on scientific innovation has led to the introduction of several additional product lines, including the Roctane system, which provides amped up ingredients for tough training and racing.

Press Forward is looking forward to helping GU disseminate information about upcoming projects and programs in the coming months, including a March 1 Salted Lime Energy Gel flavor launch that will benefit the Western States Foundation. Telling GU Performance Lab scientific stories and spreading awareness of the brand’s sustainability efforts will also be key priorities.

“We’re thrilled to partner with GU Energy Labs,” said Katie Flagg, president of Press Forward PR. “True pioneers in the field of sports nutrition, GU Energy Labs continues to lead the pack when it comes to developing innovative and effective ways to help athletes feel and perform their best. We’re looking forward to amplifying the stories of continued innovation, community building, sustainability, and philanthropy coming from GU Energy Labs in the months ahead.”
