With the launch of The Lifting Project, Muscle Milk is also announcing the next iteration of its “Own Your Strength” consumer engagement campaign which highlights the challenges, new routines, commitments and responsibilities that come with the passage of time, but also the opportunities to improve, grow stronger, demonstrate resilience and lead with strength every day.

“With the next iteration of our ‘Own Your Strength’ campaign, we are recognizing that strength is not just what we lift in the gym, but rather how we lift those around us,” said Anuj Bhasin, vice president of protein and fitness brands at PepsiCo. “That’s why we’re thrilled to partner with Candice Parker to launch the Lifting Project initiative. The impact of this program will not only improve the life of an aspiring trainer; it will also impact their community by making strength and fitness opportunities more accessible.”
“I’m thrilled to be part of the Muscle Milk campaign and The Lifting Project to share my passion and dedication to fitness,” said Candice Parker, basketball legend and Muscle Milk athlete. “I’ve seen firsthand the positive impact fitness can have on a person and I’m proud to be part of an initiative that is helping close the access gap.”
