Legendary NFL Hall of Famer Dick Butkus, His Son Matt, and Leading Doctors Form Team Butkus to Bring Life Performance Solutions to Health Conscious Consumers Worldwide

The Programs and Products Are Born From the Union of Common Sense and Hard Science and Backed by the Butkus Tough Guarantee

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/17/06 -- Dick Butkus is an American icon known for his toughness, competitiveness and individualism. It is not surprising that Butkus has attacked fitness, health and wellness with the same energy and relentlessness that made him a legend on the football field.

Several years ago, Butkus learned that he was suffering from cardiovascular disease and after having a successful surgical intervention he completed an exercise, nutrition and stress management program that changed his life. This program was made available to the public in The OC Heart Diet, a book available nationally, co-authored by Butkus and renowned physicians Lawrence J. Santora MD FACC and Steven A. Armentrout, MD FACP. With the epidemic rise in obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other life threatening illnesses, Dick wanted to do what he does best. Focus on the problem and meet it head on. With the help of his son Matt, and the two doctors who saved his life, Dr's. Santora and Armentrout, they created Team Butkus.

The goal of Team Butkus is to deliver a wide range of life performance solutions to health conscious consumers worldwide. Butkus Monster Brand products were created to provide support for the exercise and nutrition programs recommended in the OC Heart Diet book. Team Butkus products include: Monster Massage(TM), Monster Stress Management(TM), Monster(TM) Pain Management, Monster(TM) Fitness, and Monster Made Workplace Safety Products(TM) including Monster Workboots(TM). All these products support active healthy lifestyles and all are backed by the Butkus Tough Guarantee.

The impact of these products has been immediate. "But what caught our eye was his adjustable leather Team Butkus Monster Massage Chair," according to the USA Today Sports Weekly March 1-7, 2006 issue The Monster Massage chair was singled out as THE product to look for at the end of a long workout.

Team Butkus Monster Brand Products will have a presence at this years IHRSA (International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association) convention in March 20-23 celebrating IHRSA's 25th Anniversary. Team Butkus Monster Brand Products are also a proud contributer to the Mean and Clean Campaign for Steroid Free Sports. A portion of all Monster sales will be donated to Mean and Clean to support the fight against steroid abuse by young at risk athletes.
