I wanted something better for my family.

Over the years it has become obvious that the competitive nature of sports today and challenging schedule for parents makes it difficult for athletes of all ages to eat well. My three kids play multiple sports, my wife and I workout and run our businesses, and the physical and mental requirements are always high for all of us. Although we cook healthy at home it’s often difficult to eat healthy and feel great while on-the-go. The kids growing minds and bodies need sufficient macro and micro nutrients and my wife and I wanted an all-natural solution without all the chemical ingredients and maltodextrin (connected to Crohn’s Disease) for us all. 

That’s when I decided to create the quality sports nutrition products I wanted for my family. Fortunately, my degree is in Exercise Science, I am certified as a Master Fitness Specialist and in the Biomechanics of Resistance Training from the Cooper Aerobics Center, and I’ve coached a variety of youth sports from kindergarten to high school, so I was prepared to take on the challenge.

A year and a half later and following many road blocks, setbacks, and challenges I launched X1 for health conscious athletes of all ages. X1 products are All-Natural, Non-GMO, Gluten Free, Caffeine Free, have No Artificial Sweeteners, and still taste great. They include the highest quality ingredients in specific ratios to help athletes fuel their active bodies, perform at the highest level, build muscle, fight inflammation, and feel great.

As an added benefit, our products have been tested for over 200 banned substances, are Informed-Choice Certified, and are classified as food, not supplements, due to our selected ingredients, high manufacturing standards, and transparent labeling — Nutrition Facts, not unregulated Supplement Facts.

As you can probably tell, this is more than just a business. It’s a mission!  A mission to change the game, improve an industry, educate athletes, develop leaders, and make a difference. 

I created X1 for my family so you can trust it’s safe for you and yours.


Learn. Lead. Love.
