MuscleTech Signs Marathon Legend Ryan Hall
MuscleTech has announced Ryan Hall, the fastest American to ever run a marathon, as the Official Run Coach for the MuscleTech brand. As the Team MuscleTech Official Run Coach, the record-breaking long-distance runner will be leading fellow members of Team MuscleTech and the MuscleTech community in training. Hall will be developing training plans specific to marathons, half marathons, and 10Ks, and will be providing video and blog content around fitness, training, nutrition, and recovery. He will also be sharing stories based on his journey in the industry and post-retirement, which includes a completely new approach to weight training.
“Being a MuscleTech Run Coach, there’s no better match for me. Protein and running, these are my jam. This is just so organically me. I always have protein with me. So, this is just such a natural and easy fit for me,” said Hall. “I want to share the things that make me burn inside, the things I’m most passionate about, and the things I’ve learned about protein intake, nutrition, and training. These are the things that I’ve worked for twenty years plus to learn and I’m just really excited to share these lessons with the MuscleTech community.”
In addition to running the fastest marathon ever by an American at the 2011 Boston Marathon, where Hall ran a sub-2:05 marathon completing 26.2 miles in 2:04:58, Hall is the first U.S. runner to break the one-hour barrier in the half marathon, a feat he accomplished at the Aramco Houston Half Marathon in 2007 with a record time of 59:43. He also won the marathon at the 2008 United States Olympic Team Trials and finished tenth in the Olympic marathon in Beijing. After a successful professional racing career, Hall announced his retirement from the sport in 2016 citing the harmful effects that it had on his body. He then came out of retirement briefly in 2017 to run the 3rd Annual World Marathon Challenge in Sydney where he literally left his shoes at the finish line to signal the end of his running career.
Upon retirement, Hall started weightlifting and set out on a mission to get bigger and stronger. He has since become the personification of strength redefined as a result of his post-career training, success as a running coach, and his charitable endeavors. Hall truly embodies the MuscleTech motto of “Strength Redefined,” making him the perfect person to become Official Run Coach for the MuscleTech brand.
“The addition of Ryan Hall as the Run Coach for MuscleTech not only connects us to the running community and general fitness enthusiasts who enjoy the sport, but allows us to authoritatively speak on how MuscleTech positively impacts one’s training and maximizes an individual’s potential,” said Jarrod Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer at Iovate Health Sciences International Inc., the maker of the MuscleTech brand. “Ryan’s vast experience offers great value to our fans who are always looking to get better.”
