MUMBAI: Leo Burnett Orchard has won the creative duties of Guardian Healthcare, one of the largest health and wellness supplements retailers in India and the master franchisee for GNC products in the country. The business was won after a multi-agency pitch and will be handled by Leo Burnett Orchard’s Mumbai office.

Leo Burnett Orchard will now create awareness and build brand salience by focusing on leading GNC Pro Performance 100% Whey Protein to the status of flagship brand. The first campaign for the Pro Performance 100% Whey is specially designed for beginners in the world of fitness. An integrated marketing campaign–Start Strong–has been unveiled to promote GNC’s 100 per cent whey protein supplements. Popular Bollywood actor John Abraham is featured in the commercials.

Speaking about the new business and campaign Leo Burnett Orchard VP and branch head – Mumbai Manav Rai Ahuja said, “We are really excited to have GNC in our fold. They are the global leaders in nutraceuticals. Each GNC product is the result of an intensive scientific research process ensuring full effectiveness. Today, more and more people are conscious about their physicality. We, therefore, have a huge number of people joining gyms but an equal number of people dropping out. Through this campaign, we want to speak to people who are in their early stages of fitness exploration. The ‘Start Strong’ proposition sharply focuses on the importance of choosing the right beginning that yields desired results and motivates people to continue their efforts. This is GNC’s first mass media campaign and we are ensuring that it becomes a huge success by using our unique Power of One capabilities.”

Speaking about the campaign GNC India CEO Shadab Khan said, “The supplementation market in India is still at a very nascent stage and people lack the knowledge about how the right supplementation can fuel their performance. We believe that there is a need to educate people on how, along with discipline and hard work, consuming the right protein is extremely important to achieve their fitness goals. GNC Pro Performance 100% Whey Protein is the basic kick-starter protein that has been specially formulated for beginners, to maximise their fitness goals. We are confident that our new campaign with John Abraham, on GNC Pro Performance, will help inspire youngsters to take a holistic view of health and nutrition and thereby, choose the right supplements.”

Speaking about the campaign Leo Burnett Orchard executive creative director Amod Dani said, “A lot of people who workout have icons they look up to. The beginners, however, lack the right direction and the right mentorship. John Abraham is a fitness icon; his disciplined approach to building and maintaining his physique has always been an inspiration to many. We brought this very inspiration to life with John’s poster coming alive and him motivating his protégé’s workout with a balance of hard work coupled with right supplementation. Workouts are built on a strong mentor-protégé relationship, and that’s what we have reflected in the film; John as the mentor-in-chief coaches his protégé and shows him the real meaning of ‘Start Strong’.”
