What?
Really?
Joking?

It is my understanding that:

SUpplements, fine, but selling HGH, cyp or decca would be a illegal. They do work much better than supplements though.

LOL Who said anything about Cyp and Deca?? And maybe he's talking about all those nifty bogus "hgh precursors"...the post leaves a lot to be assumed. And for a first post it makes me wonder if it is bogus itself.

Doubt it. He's been registered on the board for over a year, plus his box is listed on the Affiliate page.

My affiliate sells water, sugar-free gatorade and muscle milk. And he orders Fish Oil in bulk sometimes and sells that.
Nothing illegal and no supplements like you're thinking though.

Re: selling supplements out of CF box??

we sell whey protein and a creatine product at my box, but only after I see the clients food journal and I can see their nutrition is in place.

Re: selling supplements out of CF box??

There are possibly some legal issues of selling it out of your box but more than likely no one will care.

Things to think about:

- can you buy it cheap enough to sell and make a nice profit margin or is that your goal in itself?

- have you tried and tested the product so you will stand behind it with your reputation.

- more than likely, you could stand to gain to make a lot more money off items like water, sports drink ( or buy the powder and cut it ), milk (by the cup or glass), muscle-milk or other those protein supplements in gel/liquid form.

- you could look into a site like the protein factory and buy huge bulk orders of protein and have it blended and sold. you could sell single servings besides selling it by the pound as well.
