Markus started in the supplement industry in 1999, selling sports nutrition to his friends. His focus on health and devotion to the fitness lifestyle lead to immediate success and he was asked to rep for a large sports nutrition company. He returned to retail 18 months later in opening 3 successful sports nutrition stores. Markus couldn’t find a brand that he could stand behind and saw a niche opening in the industry for a premium brand. Magnum Nutraceuticals was born in January 2005. Markus still believes in living the health & fitness lifestyle. He trains 7 times per week and can be found pushing weights, spinning, flipping tires or hanging from the rafters on any given day.
