    GNC's Thermo Burst - The Best Energy Supplement Ever!

    Thats the kind of stuff you hear when you go into a store that makes GNC the laughing stock of knowledgable bodybuilders and athletes.

    I manage a GNC franchise and after reading all the reviews on BB.Com put in my first order with Controlled Labs last week. I've been in this game a long time but I always want to get feedback from intellingent customers on what works and what doesnt so I finally registered on here so I can hear what you guys like and dont about the different supps and GNC.

    I could write a book about all the rediculous stuff I hear on a daily basis from 135lb guys buying on and off cycle but dont want protein cause the done want to get "too big." I love that one. Or the look in the eye of the kid who I just told that Anatorp70 wouldnt activate his muscle genes and put 25lbs on him so fast his girlfriend wouldnt recognize him; I felt like I just told him ther was no Santa Clause.

    I want to introduce myself, thank you guys for all the feedback and assure you that there are some GNCs with staff who use the products, know their ****, and will put you on the right program!

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. I run a FRANCHISE, I've got nothing to do with Corporate. Personally I think the creatine is worthless but you can get 6lb of whey protein for $37.49, with a Gold Card, that comes out to $29.95. Not quite $60.

    Products that I'll sell people, Gaspari, Cytosport, Dymatize, some Biotest, and ON Pro Complex if they want a high quality protein.

    Brands that are a joke; Fizogen, Muscletech, EAS, and any other brand that claims to be comparable to AAS. And Iovate, the company that sells damn near every thermogenic on the shelf under a different name and spin.

    The 100% Whey is good since its so cheap, 6lb for $30 and its something you want to take alot of. Sports Nutrition wise, Pro Performance products are just inferior rip offs of national brands and I would not recommend any PP.

    Whats worth getting at GNC is the Multi Vitamins, Flax Seed Oil, Ester-C, Triflex, a great glucosamine/Chon/MSM product, products like that.

    Ultra Mega Gold has a 100mg B Complex, 500mg of C, and its the best multi on the market. That is where GNC is top of the line, in the vit/min department. The prices are cheap and the quality is top notch. The benefit of the whey protein is the cheap price, but if you want a kick ass sports nutrition product, stay away from GNCs line.

    Should have got a tub of the 2250 and a 6lb whey and done a scoop and a half of the gainer with 2 scoops of protein. That way you get more protein, less sugar, still a ton of calories and it lasts longer!

    Although this thread is somewhat competing with the BB.com on a small indirect level, all of the above supplements can be purchased for cheaper online or retail at Vitamin World or other stores.

    I'm debating that now, it probably wont be as low as online because you have to take into account the 20% GC discount. I wait and see on Monday and do the math. It may be cheaper online but alot of guys wouldnt mind paying a little extra for the convenience, getting to look at it and hold it before the buy, and because once people want something, they want it yesterday.

    Alot to take into consideration.

    PM me Monday and let me know what you come up with (if you don't mind). Of course the price will have to be higher; running a retail store, there are many more costs on the sellers behalf (i.e. overhead costs).
    And, as you stated, giving everyone the 20% off (we do it all the time, I'm sure you do too) has to be factored in. After adding all that together, along with a profit for the store, I did not think the store retail price would be low enough for controlled labs to accept GNC to be a reseller. Did they give you any limits on what the retail prices can be?

    Specifically it was the 100% When, not Mega Whey or any other Whey. But yeah, for all of May it should have been $37.50 before the GC discount.
