The story of Muscle Clinic begins almost 8500 kilometers away from Warsaw, Florida, and it is a story written by life itself, or rather... the life of a beloved grandmother named Elsi. Yes, yes! It was a relative of Gerard Krawczyk, the founder and originator of the brand, who instilled in the future entrepreneur a maxim: "supplements are for everyone who cares about health. How did it happen that grandma's words became a recipe for success? Elsi's grandmother used to take little Gerard on shopping trips to, among other places, an athletic supplement store where she stocked up on the most necessary products alongside local bodybuilders, repeating the importance of health. The Pearl Harbor defense veteran lived to be 95! Grandma Elsa's words were and are still relevant today - they stuck in the young boy's memory, becoming an inspiration and an unquestionable legacy in the future.
Gerard's career has been a great adventure that began a long time ago and continues today. Fascination, commitment, constantly challenging and questioning the status quo - This is what the journey to perfection is all about: creating a premium brand in the dietary supplement industry. At the beginning there was admiration... Gerard Krawczyk was delighted with the innovative approach of the Americans to the issue of supplementation and began to cooperate with German brands which were dominant in Europe at that time. He quickly decided to introduce the nutritional supplements known and valued in the West to the Polish market. ... The year 2001 is for Gerard the time of promotion and advertising, because although it is - de facto - the period of domestic distribution of top German supplement brands such as: Topfit, ProVista AG, ALL STARS, NESTLE, Orthomol or Wobenzym, the company notices a big demand for high quality supplements and medical preparations mainly in Central Europe. Thus, the decision is made to establish its own independent brands.
Passion for creating high quality food preparations was born and shaped internationally. Inspirations taken from the American and German market and the way of producing dietary supplements without the use of food chemicals, which is still valued by our customers, allowed Muscle Clinic to become a PREMIUM brand. After 7 years of making important decisions for Gerard, in 2008 in Berlin, at the address Unter den Line 10, Noblepharm UG company was registered. It is here, in the eastern part of Germany, that the first and best-selling supplement to date is created: the high-value collagen hydrolysate of bovine origin Cartilage Plus powder and liquid (in 25 milliliter vials). Noblepharm UG products have their customers not only in Berlin, but also throughout Poland. Market influences from overseas have played an important role in the brand- building process. Gerard emphasizes, however, that it is the words of Grandma Elsa that have been and will continue to be the idea guiding the production of new supplements - supplements for everyone who wants to take care of their health.
"Première" is the French word for something first - a phrase that fits perfectly into the story of Gerard and his team, setting the stage for future activities and achievements. The machine park for Muscle Clinic's nutritional products is built in 2011, and the first IsoTrainUp 2250g - a pure whey protein isolate formula supporting its users in gaining and maintaining muscle mass - comes off the production line. In the spirit of current - but not specific for those times - sustainable business practices, a high quality food product was created without any food chemicals in its composition. Gerard, a manufacturer of preservative-free nutrition products, is a forerunner in the field of healthy and safe nutrition - ahead of its time and spreading the idea instilled years ago by Grandma Elsi. In 2012 a particularly important event takes place, namely the premiere of Muscle Clinic at the largest International Trade Fair for Bodybuilding, Fitness, Wellness and Health FIBO POWER in Cologne to present the brand and its range of products. The innovative (and still practiced to this day) production method was received very positively at FIBO, and the success measured by numerous signed purchase contracts is the beginning of the Muscle Clinic brand's development, a testimony of growing importance on the supplement market and the great hope of Gerard - the brand's creator and creator. The grand opening of Muscle Clinic's first retail store in Berlin on Alexanderplatz marks the beginning of a journey to the heart of consumers, and at the same time a confrontation with the dietary supplement market. A twin retail store is being built in the Złote Terasy shopping complex in the very centre of Warsaw.
