Chris Kinnear

Owner / Product Adviser

From an owner’s standpoint, I strive to utilize my 24 yrs of experience in the supplements nutrition industry and combine that with my passion to help others to help my clients reach their true potential and live a healthier more vibrant life!!

As a former professional athlete with the Victoria Shamrocks 2003-2009 I know the role that "performance nutrition" has at gaining a much needed advantage over the competition. I try to use this knowledge to better help my clients benefit in their careers as well

Over the past 14 years I have worked hard to assemble a very knowledgeable staff that follows my same passions.

Together we invite you to come speak with any one of us (free of charge) to help design the optimal supplement program for your individual needs!
