FORT GIBSON – Cherokee Nation citizen Jon Griggs and his friend, Alex Miller, co-own Limitless Nutrition, which recently opened as a one-stop nutrition shop.
The two former basketball players said they’ve always been into fitness, which led to an interest in nutrition and a desire to open a nutrition store. Griggs, who is also a real estate agent, said he learned of a storefront rental listing and he could not “pass it up.”
“We talked about doing a business together for about seven years. We initially thought about opening a gym, but over the years we realized the importance in fueling your body the right way. Your physical and mental output is heavily dependent on your nutrition intake,” Griggs said. “So our purpose is to provide a healthy solution to anyone interested in improving their health, fitness, mental or physical performance or overall self-image.”
Limitless Nutrition is located at 1205 S. Lee St. It offers everything from fitness advice and supplements to nutritional smoothies, shakes and teas, Griggs said.
He said they offer pre-workout supplements, proteins, multivitamins, fat burners, natural herbs, energy teas, all-natural skin care products and nootropics, a brain booster for focus and energy. He also said they carry supplement brands to cater to costumers. “We are pretty unlimited to what we can get and what we can carry. If we don’t carry a certain product you’re looking for, we will get it for you.”
However, to set it apart from being just a supplement and vitamin store, the team partnered with PowerBlendz, a health and wellness company, to add a made-to-order smoothie bar.
Griggs said the smoothie menu consists of meal-replacement, energizer, fat-burner, protein and recovery shakes, as well as shakes geared toward cutting carbs and calories. They also have ingredients to make pre-workout and post-workout drinks made with real fruit, he said.
“We don’t use any artificial flavoring. We provide pure protein and zero-sugar products, so our products have less calories per serving. You can get a full serving of greens from our organic greens supplements, and we can add fiber supplements too, so basically you can get like a full multivitamin shake,” Griggs said.
Instead of a grab-and-go facility, he said they want to provide the community with a comfortable atmosphere where costumers can enjoy their drinks and complementary Wi-Fi. In addition to seeing the business succeed locally, Griggs said they hope to expand to Tahlequah and across the state. They also are developing fitness plans for those needing guidance, as well as providing delivery services for smoothies and nutrition drinks to Fort Gibson and Muskogee businesses.
“A lot of people are doing the meal-replacement shake for lunch, so if a business wants to order our shakes or even a teas we will deliver it to them,” Griggs said.
He said they are looking to partner with high school and college sports teams, too. “We would provide them with products to help with performance and recovery, like hydration products, amino acids and protein drinks.”
Griggs also said they offer a 5 percent discount to students and CN citizens, as well as military, police and firefighter personnel. Business hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
