Founded in 2015, 1 Up Nutrition is based in Miami, Florida.
The company’s co-founders are John Hilton McAuliffe and Vadim Mordovin (also CEO). Mordovin is also co-founder of I Eat Protein LLC. The pair started as online fitness coaches – and this led to the desire to “develop products for [their] clients” that boasted both the “best formulas” and the “best price points”.
From there, the partners decided to create their own supplement company to provide products that gave their clients “better results with the support of nutrition and exercise” – which (in Mordovin’s words) would mean “everybody’s going to win”.
On the 1 Up Nutrition website, the company declares its commitment to four key values: “Highest Quality Products”, “Honesty and Integrity”, “Passion For What We Do” and “Going The Extra Mile”.
As part of its pledge to make high-quality products, 1 Up Nutrition products contain the “highest quality ingredients”, as well as “open” and “properly dosed” formulas with no proprietary blends. As a sign of the brand’s belief in the quality of its products, it offers a 100% money back guarantee on all purchases.
To show its “passion for what we do”, Mordovin and Hilton McAuliffe say that the whole 1 Up Nutrition team “is passionate and energetic” in its determination to help its customers reach their fitness goals.
And to go the “extra mile”, the company ensures that all products bearing the 1 Up Nutrition name are made in a facility which carries certificates from globally-recognized organizations. These include Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and National Products Association (NPA). The manufacturing plant also follows current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and has been inspected by the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA).
During the manufacturing process, the company “identity tests” every raw material before production, while all finished products are “submitted to rigorous quality control” to guarantee that all products meet the company’s quality and safety standards.
The 1 Up Nutrition product line features protein powders/bars, pre-workouts, fat burners, creatines, testosterone boosters and more.
