Zavala and Kirby’s Iron Coalition


After months of planning, Serge Zavala of Natural Vitamins of New York (NVNY in the Body Building Circuit) and personal trainer Manny Kirby held their first in-gym event at Calyer Street’s Otom Gym.

The Iron Coalition had an attendance of nearly 150, as well as many International Federation of Bodybuilding & Fitness (IFBB) Pros and National Physique Committee (NPC) Competitor, who came down to support this first time, free event.

Many of the top Body Building Supplement Companies like BSN, Optimum Nutrition and MHP were at Otom to give out samples to the audience and to award prizes to the first and second place winners in each category. In addition, everyone was able to sample many of the companies’ new products and to buy nutritious food from FUEL or high-protein muffins from Kat’s Muffins. There were also three clothing lines, Iron Asylum (owned by Jerry Beck), Uncivilized Clothing (Mario Valero) and SteelTribe available for sale at this event. Signed 8×11 photos and posters from all of TEAM Natural Vitamins Sponsored Athletes were also available.

There were 20 participants in each of three categories: Deadlifts, Bench Press and Curls. Winners received vouchers gift certificates from NVNY and the other sponsors.

The gym event and Natural Vitamin’s Expos are just some of the ways NVNY gives back to the community to show gratitude to the customers who have helped them become one of New York’s top Supplement Stores.

Natural Vitamins, a “Mom & Pop Shop,” has been a Greenpoint institution for 38 years. Now operated by Zavala, NVNY is in the process of expanding to Astoria, Queens – their new store will be opening up in the coming weeks, and is launching their e-commerce site

Up next for this family business is the 2011 Natural Vitamin Expo, this July. The event will be hosted by NVNY at their 671 Manhattan Avenue store and will include over 20 companies giving away free samples of their top sellers as well as free t-shirts and shakers to all that come. Top IFBB Pros will be there signing autographs and posing for pictures. Check out NVNY’s Fan Page on facebook to keep up-to-date about upcoming events, sales and specials.
