PITTSBURGH, June 3 // PRNewswire // -- GNC will host fitness and figure competitors Kirsten Nicewarner and Michelle Adams at the 2008 Teva Mountain Games Thursday through Sunday in Vail Valley, Colo. Both International Federation of Bodybuilding professionals, Kirsten and Michelle are among the world's top female physique competitors.

According to tevamountaingames.com, the Games are the country's largest celebration of mountain sport, soul and culture, featuring professional and amateur adventure athletes from around the world. Sports include freestyle and extreme kayaking, bouldering, speed and dyno climbing, mountain biking, road racing, trail running and -- of course -- the GNC Ultimate Mountain Challenge.

The GNC Ultimate Mountain Challenge is a multi-sport test of athletic skill, power and endurance. Events include a 10k trail run, mountain biking, road biking and kayaking -- and athletes will push for the ultimate recognition: to be named the Games' ultimate man, woman and team. The Games will culminate Sunday with the GNC Ultimate Mountain Challenge Coronation.


Come to GNC's exhibition at the Games to:

-- Meet Kirsten and Michelle, score autographs and pick up health and
wellness tips.

-- Attempt the GNC Grip Gauntlet, comprised of three grip strength tests:
the Blob Pinch Grip (lift a 50-lb blob of iron in a one-handed pinch
grip), the Captains of Crush #2 Grippers (squeeze 195 lbs of pressure

rolling grip). Anyone who can conquer all three feats (few have the
strength to succeed!) will be awarded a $50 GNC Gift Card.

custom Hulk chopper valued at approximately $100,000!
