NutriShop is not just a place for the serious workout enthusiast. It is also a place for the average person who wants to improve his or her health or lose weight and body fat. This is the reason that Brandon resident Vincent Marinaccio chose for opening his family owned business, NutriShop. In the area for five years, the shop is located at 2940 Providence Lakes Blvd. in Brandon. He also has two other shops; one in New Tampa and the other in the South Tampa area.

Becoming a fitness enthusiast at age 13, Marinaccio played baseball, football and wrestling in high school and went on to play college baseball at Iona College, located in New York State.

Marinaccio chose to open his first Nutrishop in the Brandon area. He said, “I recognized that the Brandon area needed a sports nutrition and weight loss store that catered to each individual’s needs and personal goals they are looking to obtain.”

The products that are provided at Nutrishop are protein powders, weight loss, detox cleansers, sports nutrition, pre-workout powders, muscle optimizers, multi-vitamins, organic fruits and greens in a freeze dried powder, EFA’s, joint therapeutics, liver support and test boosters.

Everyone gets a one-on-one consultation in order to understand the customer’s goals and life-style. A program will then be developed that is specific for the customer. Every step that is necessary to achieve their goals will be explained in detail. The customer will be educated on each product recommended and will be given a written program with the times to take each supplement. If you are looking for weight loss, a free meal plan that is easy to follow and shows different food choices to eat will be provided. “It really takes the guess work out of meal planning. Not only do we sell the product, but the customer will leave our store with a better understanding what was purchased and how to use it properly without having to read the label,” said Marinaccio.

They are open from Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Friday from 10 a.m.- 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information about NutriShop, call 684-2380 or visit
