Helping Individuals and Families Achieve and Maintain Health & Wellness Goals Since 2004
Complete Nutrition is an upscale nutritional supplement retail store. Our goal is to help each customer look better, feel better and perform better every day.
Started in 2004, Complete Nutrition is now one of the fastest-growing franchises in the nation. Our stores eliminate the clutter and high pressure sales environment of typical nutritional supplement stores and instead focus on giving customers the best experience and results for their money. To that end, Complete Nutrition stores employ certified personal trainers, former strength coaches and other experienced fitness professionals in order to best assist customers in developing personalized nutrition programs.
After accruing a combined 30 years experience in the supplemental retail industry, the leadership behind what would become Complete Nutrition recognized a niche was not being served: A nutritional supplement store where personal service, less intimidating store environments, and truly great products combine to help people live and breathe a healthy lifestyle.
In addition, they recognized a truth that would be the basis of all Complete Nutrition stores: An understanding and admission that there is no such thing as a “miracle pill.” Living a healthy lifestyle requires a commitment across the areas of hydration, supplements, eating a balanced diet, and exercising. By helping people understand that Complete Nutrition is simply one step in that process and by giving them the education and advice they need, Complete Nutrition has solidified itself as a company that goes the extra mile for its customers.
Complete Nutrition also works with various health care providers, nutritionists and chemists to develop the highest-quality formulations for supplements. These products are exclusive to Complete Nutrition and serve as a customer’s best weapon in reaching their goals.
