This year, I noticed that my summer gym is carrying Spike in their energy-drink case, toe-to-toe with all the Red Bulls and Monsters. It shocked me to see such a mainstream gym – it’s named “24/7 Fitness” and offers Zumba classes – carrying such an elite product.
I don’t know about everyone else, but since I learned about T-Nation I’ve felt like it was kind of “underground” – that the site, community, and products were a secret that I was lucky enough to know about – and, with “back to school” on my mind this week, I was wondering if Biotest will ever have a campus presence.
The Red Bull Mini Cooper and Monster Chevy pickup make a stop by my college’s campus at least once per semester and Rockstar has a Campus Rep as well. They host local bars for a night, have on-campus events/picnics/field days, or hand out free samples. I’m up in New York at SUNY New Paltz and, personally, I’d love to see a black and red, Biotest GT500 roll onto my campus to hurl cans of Spike at my friends (and some unsuspecting hippies).
