We started the online store because, as bodybuilders and fitness freaks, we were tired of paying ridiculous prices for products that didn't do half of what the advertising said it would. We saw that these big corporations were getting rich by ripping us off!
The main problem was that the products went through so many "middle men," they had no choice but to charge outrageous prices! The manufacturer sells it to a distributor, the distributor doubles the price and then sells to another local distributor who then sells it for a big profit to the retail stores. The retail stores double that price and sell it to its unknowing customers. The end result is a price so high that you would have to be rich to be able to afford what you want!
We also believed that the keys to bodybuilding and fitness success were information, motivation and supplementation. You need information so you know what to do to get results from your efforts. You need motivation so you stick with your program over the long term. You also need supplementation to help you get the best possible results!
So we decided to do something about it. We started a company that would cut out the middle men, and sell high-quality products directly to the public at amazing wholesale prices! After a few years we became the largest supplement wholesaler on the Internet, and we can proudly say that we have made it possible for the average bodybuilder to gain strength and size faster and easier than ever! We sell more high quality supplements than ANY other site on the Internet. We have millions of satisfied customers who are continually coming back for more!
