FOSTER CITY, Calif., May 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Christie Rampone is not your average soccer mom. The 35-year-old mother of two has graced magazine covers, serves as captain of the U.S. National Women’s Soccer team, won two Olympic gold medals, a World Cup title and led her women’s team to a championship while 3 months pregnant. Dubbed as the “First Lady of Soccer” and the “Ultimate Sports Mom,” Rampone has joined the FRS® Healthy Performance® Team as an FRS Ambassador to inspire others to fuel their best with the healthy benefits of FRS products. You’ll never catch this FRS mom on the sidelines.
“As a wife, mother of two, and the captain of the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team, I am always on the go,” says Rampone. “Choosing the right products to fuel my body is an absolute must and helps me be the best I can be for both my family and team. Because I travel all over the world, I need something to help keep me healthy and balanced. FRS products are a huge part of my life and a big reason why I continue to accomplish my dreams.”
This soccer phenomenon has an unwavering determination to score big on her goals- both on and off the field. Whether she’s in the middle of her professional season or home with her family, Rampone credits FRS for its natural ability to keep her energy up. A fan of FRS since winning the gold in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, she especially benefits from the fact that the FRS products are packed with B-Vitamins and antioxidants that aid in her recovery and protect her immune system. Rampone will join the likes of seven time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong, 2007 Heisman Trophy Winner and NFL first round draft pick Tim Tebow,, five time NBA champion Derek Fisher, record-setting mountain climber Jordan Romero and a growing number of Americans who have adopted FRS to enhance their personal performance. Rampone’s relationship with FRS will include print and online placements, blogging, appearances, and acting as an overall brand ambassador.
