MUTANT Signs Shawn Ray
Legendary Bodybuilder Joins MUTANT Nutrition as Global Brand Ambassador.
During an enthusiastic signing ceremony at MUTANT Nutrition headquarters today, President and CEO Jim McMahon announced the surprise signing of legendary bodybuilder Shawn Ray as a Global Brand Ambassador.
“Our whole organization is thoroughly energized by our association with Shawn,” stated Mr. McMahon. “MUTANT has never been interested in average and I couldn’t think of a better partnership to represent our goal of helping driven athletes reach a higher plane of performance than such a dominant force in bodybuilding, both on stage and off.”
Effective immediately, Mr. Ray joins MUTANT Nation as the face of a global army of like-minded fitness and bodybuilding enthusiasts around the world with the mission of sharing his wisdom, techniques, motivation, and nutrition tips that helped him become one of the most accomplished and prolific bodybuilding champions of all time.
"I live the bodybuilding lifestyle to the fullest,” remarked Shawn. “While I’m no longer on stage as a competitor, I travel the world promoting shows and being a missionary for the sport that made me who I am. Today, I'm excited to be all-in with MUTANT, using my talents and decades of experience to help them create the next generation of MUTANT athletes.”
MUTANT announced that Shawn will start contributing almost immediately by sharing exclusive, all-access, behind-the-scenes content from major bodybuilding shows, providing training and nutrition advice, and supporting the launch of a forthcoming new formula.
Shawn’s mission: New MUTANTS. A New era.
Shawn Ray has always been ALL-IN. In the gym, on stage, in business, in life. The unrivaled work ethic, grit, and determination made Shawn Ray one of the best in the world, to drive a movement and fresh global brand voice with MUTANT Nation.
A few days ago, we saw the MUTANT Nation Instagram page share a post to let all the fans know, a new Mutant would be announced on July 20, 2021. When we saw the statuesque silhouette pictured, our Muscle Insider team knew right away that it could be none other than the legendary Shawn Ray.
During his time as an IFBB Pro Bodybuilder, Shawn Ray was known as “the Giant Killer.” Now retired from competing, Shawn is well-known as an author, TV host, bodybuilding commentator, an NPC and IFBB Pro League Promoter, Editor in Chief at Digital Muscle Media, and the list goes on. It was 1998 when Shawn Ray made his professional bodybuilding debut at the IFBB Night of Champions. Shawn has earned recognition as one of the best pro bodybuilders in history. With a career spanning over 30 years, Ray placed in the top five at the Mr. Olympia competition for twelve consecutive years from 1990 to 2001, two of which had him finish as the first runner-up, along with two Arnold Classic Championship titles in 1990 and 1991.
Shawn Ray shared with us his thoughts on his return to supplements and why MUTANT? "For every athlete there's a defining moment, for some onstage and for others off. In my retirement, I've traveled the world promoting shows, helping athletes, and being an international missionary for the sport that made me who I am. Now, I'm All In! With MUTANT Nation using my talents and decades of personal experience to help give back to the next generation of athletes and allowing me to continue to educate those that have grown up with me in the sport of Bodybuilding on the importance of good health, nutrition, and longevity by using supplement products I can trust and believe in. The beauty about experience is that I have seen everything and have tried everything. I didn't come this far by making bad choices.”
Shawn continues, “So the next chapter has begun where I've decided to help build an Army of MUTANT Warriors to march into this new decade with confidence built on my wise decision to choose a supplement company I trust, that not only has the best products on the market but will allow me to add my two cents to future products I feel will be helpful in building back bigger, faster and stronger bodies that we can all be proud of based on Science and Experience!”
