Update: 1 May 2010 – Did you know, that you can now ship a wide variety of supplements from bodybuilding.com to Malaysia at a very affordable price? (Cheaper than local Malaysian supplement stores!). Read my latest writeup and review – click here =>”BodyBuilding.com Ships to Malaysia at an Affordable Price (free 10% off Coupon Code)”
The time has finally come to reveal what I believe to be one of the best kept secrets from the majority of fitness enthusiasts here in Malaysia. Never again will you have to pay ridiculous overpriced items at a GNC near you. I’ve been talking about this for a couple of weeks now already if you guys have been following my posts.
I’ve come to discover a better place to purchase my supplements. Be it protein powder, protein bars, mass gainers, creatine, vitamins, fat burners, vasodilators, testosterone boosters – these guys have it all – and at down-to earth prices.
Some of their low prices are obvious on Optimum Nutrition’s 100% Whey Protein 5lb at RM180 (that’s 35% less than what you pay at GNC!), low-carb Protein Bars (Optimum Nutrition) at RM8 each (getting something similar at GNC would cost you at least RM15), and the list goes on.
Who am I talking about? Say hello… to EGOnutritions.
Situated at the Riana Green Plaza at the Tropicana in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, I had the pleasure of meeting up with the owners of EGOnutritions a couple of weeks ago, and I find it very reassuring to know that the owners themselves are fitness enthusiasts and not out there to rip you off your hard earned money. They know what they’re selling. How cool is that?
They’re a helpful bunch and always ready to help you make an informed decision before you make a purchase. Did I also mention that they deliver the items right to your doorstep? HELL, YEAH. Delivery is free of charge if you’re within their coverage area – otherwise, it’s just a minimum cost (which is still cheaper than you getting there on your own).
EGOnutritions carries items from Optimum NUtrition, Muscletech, Twinlab, Universal, EAS, Biotest, Next Nutritions, Nutrex, and many others. They are also currently the only official distributor for the BSN range of products here in Malaysia. Now if that doesn’t satisfy your appetite for the best – then nothing will.
And why haven’t you heard of them before? Beats me. That’s the first question I asked them myself when I finally got to meet the guys at EGOnutritions.
If you’re wondering why I seem to compare them to GNC so much – well it’s because I was one of those who were really glad when GNC first came to our shores as it finally meant that we were gonna get some decent sports nutrition items here in Malaysia at reasonable prices. See my previous post on GNC here. But now, after spending more than RM2,000 at GNC and also at other sports nutrition stores over the past 1 year and realising that not only do these stores overprice their items and frequently run out of stock – I’m also declaring all the everyday sports nutritions stores you see out there in Malaysia to be the worst place to get your bodybuilding supplements, mainly due to their overpriced items. For REAL. Don’t believe me? See what I just did to a Loyalty/Membership Card from one of the stores I used to frequent (card expires next year):
Convinced now? You better be, cos I’m serious.
Dailymuscle.com and EGOnutritions have big plans in the near future for fitness enthusiasts here in Malaysia and among many other things, we’re excited to see how we can contribute and create awareness for everyone out there.
