Penampang, Sabah, 29 Sept 2021 – Sports Nutrition Pro Sdn Bhd (“Nutrition Pro”), one of Malaysia’s leading sports supplement retailers, opens its doors this month in Penampang, Sabah. Despite the prolonged lockdown of the fitness industry due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year, the company is still on track to achieve its all-time high revenue of RM20 million in 2021, an increase by over 60% from 2020.

Established in 2011, Nutrition Pro has successfully introduced world-renowned sports nutrition supplements to the fitness and bodybuilding market. Amongst some of the top global brands distributed are MMX Muscle Metabolix, Optimum Nutrition, Dymatize, MyProtein, MuscleTech, Scivation, Redcon1, Dream Tan, BSN and BPI Sports. The company is also the organiser of Mr. Perak, an annual bodybuilding competition in Ipoh, Perak.

“Multiple Movement Control Orders (MCOs) initiated by the government to curb the spread of COVID-19 in 2020 and 2021 may have hampered the fitness industry. Despite the challenges, we were lucky to have managed to pivot our business model and focus on e-commerce, which has led to the growth in our revenue,” said Lawrent Cheong Yon Jean, director of Nutrition Pro.

He added that the company has also strived to help gyms and fitness centres to recover and recoup their losses. “Nutrition Pro has helped over ten gyms and fitness centres during this lockdown by expanding their business models to incorporate e-commerce and virtual personal training classes. This has helped them to sustain their income and hopefully, can be an added revenue for them when their operations resume.”

“What we strived for is the co-development and sustenance of the ecosystem by sharing our knowledge and by lending a helping hand. We hope that more gyms and fitness centres will utilise this opportunity to engage our services. Our comprehensive plans will ensure that they recover in the shortest amount of time possible.”
September 2021 also marked a new journey as the company launched its first East Malaysia outlet in Penampang, Sabah. “Over the past few years, we have witnessed an increase in demand by our customers in Sabah and Sarawak. I sincerely hope that our presence here will help to fulfil their demand and spur the growth of the local sports industry,” said Dr Benedict Yu, Managing Director of Nutrition Pro Sabah.

“Moreover, we have recently signed an agreement with the Sabah Bodybuilding Association (SBBA) to show our full support to the 2021 Mr Sabah and Mr Borneo that is slated at the end of the year. This will be our first foray in working with a sports association in Sabah and we hope that we can contribute more to the local sporting landscape,” he added.

Akhirnya Kakak Dah Vaksin Sepenuhnya!


Orang dah lama complete vaksin, kakak barulah nak update ye. Takpe, biarpun lambat kakak tetap nak update! Hahahahhaha. Setelah sekian lama, akhirnya kakak dah vaksin sepenuhnya! Alhamdulillah. Kakak daftar untuk pengambilan vaksin ni dari bulan Februari. Dari mula kerajaan bukak slot vaksin, kakak terus je register. Tunggu punya tunggu belum ada panggilan.

Masa diorang bukak sukarela untuk AstraZeneca batch pertama tu, kakak tak sempat nak daftar. masuk-masuk je dah penuh, lepas tu kakak try untuk batch kedua. Alhamdulillah sempat mendaftar. Tu pun jenuh jugak nak dapatkan slot, nasiblah my sister tolong. Guna henfon kakak tak tau asal tak boleh tekan verification gambar-gambar tu. Hahahahahaha. Tu la yang paling menguji keimanan dan kesabaran ye guyssss!

Dos pertama kakak jatuh pada bulan 7 lepas, nak dijadikan cerita masa tarikh tu pulak, kawasan taman perumahan kakak ni kena PKPD. Masa tu macam-macam hal la, ramai yang bising sebab masa mula-mula memang polis dan askar yang jaga ni tak bagi keluar pegi vaksin. Kakak dah emosi dah masa tu, yelah ko dah susah payah rebut-rebut slot vaksin, tetiba bila sampai masa nak cucuk tak boleh keluar sebab PKPD. Nasiblah lepas 5 hari PKPD, diorang akhirnya buat keputusan untuk membenarkan orang-orang dari kawasan PKPD untuk keluar gi vaksin. Kalau korang follow kakak kat IG mesti korang tau betapa eksitednya kakak masa tu.

Masa nak amik dos pertama tu pun, taklah lama mana. Dalam masa 30 minit je dah selesai semua. Alhamdulillah, mudah je prosedur dia pun. Lepas cucuk tu, kakak demam 2 hari. Kuat jugak penangan AstraZeneca ni. Tapi takpe la, kesan dia tak berpanjangan pun. Dah baik demam, semuanya macam biasa dan takde effect lain-lain.

Dos kedua kakak pulak, 11 September lepas. Masa cucuk dos kedua ni pun smooth jugak, kejap je dah settle semua. Alhamdulillah. Tapi dos kedua ni kakak langsung takde kesan apa-apa berbanding dos pertama. Agaknya dah serasi kot. Mula cuak jugak, sebab ramai yang cakap dos kedua lagi kuat. Tapi so far takde pape pun. Rasa dia ikut penerimaan badan kita jugak kot. Ada yang first dose okay, tapi second dose demam. Macam my sister la, dos pertama dia okay, tapi dos kedua dia demam.

Tapi nak tau apa yang paling menguji lepas amik vaksin? Nak tunggu 14 hari tempoh matang dia tu. Dia lagi rasa lama berbanding gap 2 bulan  nak cucuk vaksin tu okay! Hahahhahahah. Tapi apapun, Alhamdulillah dah selesai semuanya. Now I'm FULLY VACCINATED! Yeayyyyy!!!!

Kakak doakan semoga segala urusan semua orang dipermudahkan okay!
