"Feed your body correctly and you will be astounded by how healthy you will be, how good you will feel, and how well you will perform."
P2Life Nutrition is the vision of Co-Founder, Tim Shead. The name P2Life is short for “Protecting Health and Promoting Performance, for Life”. Tim has been involved in swimming and nutrition, for over 50 years, since shortly after he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business in 1974. In fact it was his own dramatic failure in the sport that provided the catalyst, changing his life forever. His path turned away from the financial world towards swimming and nutrition, particularly the importance of getting proper nutrition for maximizing health, and with it performance.
