Learn a little about this Evogen Elite Retailer:

How did you get started providing sports nutrition supplements?

After 24 years in a different line of work I decided it was time for a change. I walked into a  Max Muscle shop and I knew right then and there that this was the path for me..


Now 17 years and 3 stores later, I know it was the right decision.

What got you into supplements or fitness? 

I’ve spent most of my life around fitness and training so opening our first Max Muscle store was the next step. 

What you love most about fitness or bodybuilding? 

Bodybuilding taught me that nothing beats discipline and hard work. 

Fitness has changed my life in so many ways.. Also enabled us to help others attain their goals through diet and exercise as well. 


What you love most about Evogen?  

Evogen products are of the highest quality! First and foremost that’s what we want all our clients to experience here at Max Muscle, quality products!

We don’t carry all those off brand, low quality supplement lines that you can buy online or the discounts shops.


Featured Retailer: Sports Nutrition Center in Tigard, OR

In 1996 as a young couple we were mindful of our budget.   Because we are both athletes and fitness enthusiast, we were constantly researching and shopping around for good quality sports nutrition supplements at a reasonable price. Our only resource was waiting for a big box store to have a 20% off day or shop the back of fitness magazines or catalogues.  Remember at that time the internet was not nearly as sophisticated as it is today, and the online competition was nonexistent.

We started our bricks and mortar store to help like-minded people find high quality sports nutrition supplements that would not break the bank. We leveraged our years of work and training experience and dove headfirst into our retail adventure. 20 years later, we run a nice little retail show room and on-line site that has helped consumers across the US with different fitness or lifestyle goals find and purchase sports nutrition supplements at a competitive price.

By providing consistent customer service and sharing product information unlike other companies in the industry, we were seen as a differentiator and were able to scale quickly. Over the years we continued to innovate and grow.   Partnering with the leaders in the industry furthered our education and product base.

Hany Rambod and Evogen Nutrition embody the same customer driven and ethical approach.  They were a natural partner for us.  Sharing the same ideals and desire for excellence in service.  It’s been fun and quite refreshing working with Nick and the entire team at Evogen Nutrition.  Product training, sampling, demo’s and genuinely nice people.  What you see is what you get.  Full disclosure in product labeling and a 100% guarantee.

Retailer of the Month: Max Muscle Walnut Creek

Kenny Tali: Max Muscle Walnut Creek
Kenny Tali opened his Max Muscle Sports Nutrition Store in 2001. It never crossed his mind that in just a few years he would be running a secondary business as Northern California’s top figure coach, guiding countless competitors to success, as well as a number of elite athletes and fitness enthusiast, including top MMA fighters. Kenny’s genuine interest and enthusiasm in bringing out the best in each and every client is what draws such a large following not only in Northern California, but nationwide as well. An ISSA certified personal trainer and certified nutritionist, Kenny feeds off of years of experience, beginning with his first figure client, girlfriend, and now IFBB Professional figure competitor, Gina Camacho. Gina decided she would take a stab at her first competition after being persuaded by Kenny. Although new to the sport, it was obvious that Kenny had a knack for what he was doing, since Gina claimed the title of “overall” figure at her first show, the 2002 NPC Contra Costa, followed by a seemingly instantaneous rise to the pro level in 2004. While inspiring Gina, Kenny simultaneously gained his own inspiration as he watched her dedication to the sport despite a hectic schedule, a full-time job and a child.

Kenny has successfully trained over 200 clients, and that number is growing rapidly. Other professional-level clients include pro figure competitors Carin Hawkins and April Fortier and pro bikini competitor Natalie Pennington. But as he says, “we don’t take pro’s, we build them from the ground up.” He also brings undoubtedly the largest and most successful team of amateur figure competitors to Nor Cal’s main NPC events, in their infamous track suits proudly displaying the title, “Ken’s Barbies”. Kenny knows that each competitor has unique needs, and therefore does not believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach to fitness. He takes the time to write highly customized workouts and nutrition programs for each and every client. This is why he has built the most impressive track record of any prep coach in Northern California.

In addition to coaching figure models and a handful of bodybuilding clients, Kenny puts his years of experience into martial arts and body building which is unusual, due to the fact that most people don’t do both. With his certification as a nutritionist he puts it to work as a seasoned MMA strength and conditioned coach, specializing in diet and supplementation. He has guided numerous fighters in the process of reaching their idealized weight classes while still achieving optimum performance in the ring. Loaded with fierce diet and supplement tricks, Kenny gives each fighter the edge they need to push through the most intense conditioning and destroy their completion.

Retailer of the Month:

Lockout is owned and operated by Greg, an off duty firefighter, and his brother Glenn. The idea started as a goal to open a hardcore gym in Mckinney, Texas. They were tired of only having large fitness centers with expensive dues and too many rules. While doing the research of what it was going to take to open such a gym, they decided to start a webpage for it. They didn’t want to stop with just the gym, so the ideas of a forum, clothing line, online supplement store, and bodybuilding/ powerlifting gear came next. So now what you have is a one stop bodybuilding/powerlifting site. Over time, the site will continue to grow and changes will be made to better accommodate our users’ needs.
