About Me: Nick Stoop, Owner/Founder

Sport: Lacrosse

I played a year of DI lacrosse at Robert Morris University before transferring to play DIII lacrosse at Eastern Connecticut State University where I graduated Cum Laude with his BS in Exercise Science and Sport Performance with a Minor in Coaching in 2013.  My passion for exercise and nutrition coupled with my desire to help others led me to starting this business because when I was an athlete, I didn’t have the guidance, education, or tools to get the most out of my nutrition and performance.

Favorite Exercise: Deadlifts
