Complete Nutrition opens Cape Coral location today

By Staff | Apr 30, 2011

A nutritional franchise is opening its doors with what officials say will be clutter-free, non-intimidating experience for Cape Coral residents today.
Tyler Hunt, co-owner and general manager of Complete Nutrition, said the Cape Coral store is the first one in Southwest Florida. The 24-year-old, who has a background in physical therapy said Cape Coral was a good location to begin the franchise because there are a lot of gyms around that give back to the community.
“We are going to do everything we can to provide a healthy lifestyle for everyone,” he said.
Complete Nutrition caters to higher quality supplements with more than 200 fat burner combinations. Their inventory consists of 50 percent weight loss supplements, 30 percent sports nutrition supplements and about 10 percent general health supplements.
Hunt said the store caters more towards women, due to their busy lifestyles.
Anyone interested in sampling one or more of the supplements can do so when visiting the store.
“Anything that they want to try they can sample first before they purchase it,” Hunt said.
His staff consists of three employees who do sales and five who go out and promote the business and provide samples. Hunt said his entire staff is personal trainer certified, so they can offer more to the customers.
When customers first visit Complete Nutrition, staff will sit down with them to go over a sheet that will help them plan for their daily meals.
“Their job is to get in shape,” Hunt said. “It is our job to put them on the right path.”
The sheet contains three sections –protein, carbohydrates and fruits and vegetables. Hunt said the customer picks one item from each section and then the staff will help write out a meal plan for breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with advising them when they should take their supplements.
About two weeks after the customer fills out the sheet, Hunt will either call or email them to see how things are going. He said if they do not see an improvement he will see what they can change to help things move along.
Hunt said his intention is to go for the wow experience, so people want to come back to the store.
Complete Nutrition will have a booth set up at LA Fitness today, so they can participate in the Let’s Do It Together Weight Loss Challenge weigh in event. He said he will have two employees at the event providing pre-work out protein shakes and post-work out fat burner shakes.
The central warehouse location for Complete Nutrition will open at Gulf Coast Town Center in September and another location will open in Naples in January or February of next year. Hunt said he is opening stores in just Southwest Florida.
Complete Nutrition will be open from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Monday through Saturday and from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
The Cape store is at 1860 Pine Island Road, Suite 215.
