1st Phorm Deserves More Respect | Why 1st Phorm is Different | Sal Frisella Silences Haters the Joshua Schall Audio Experience

    • Business

1st Phorm isn’t like other supplement brands. That’s by design, but it seems to cause a level of ignorance by sports nutrition industry pundits that has always felt downright disrespectful to me. My belief is that outside of a rare few, the vast majority are one trick ponies that see the sports nutrition space through one lens only. Basically, they like to fit brands into boxes based on their understanding of the supplement market. The problem is that 1st Phorm doesn’t fit neatly into a box. Regardless, most of these supplement industry pundits recognize that 1st Phorm is successful by capitalistic market metrics. This does one of two things...they choose to simply ignore 1st Phorm all together or they take misguided jabs at them to try and generate attention or clicks. In my opinion, both are disrespectful. But, instead of hearing it just from me, I included a snippet of a conversation I had with Sal Frisella (President - 1st Phorm) on what he and his supplement brand thinks about it. Additionally, I breakdown a collection of strategies that are actually important and really damn impactful that 1st Phorm doesn’t get enough respect for, such as their job creation, free TransPhormation Challenges, Legionnaire Program, building the best community in the sports nutrition industry, leveraging of a vertically integrated business model, and being aggressively patient. Why is 1st Phorm different? 1st Phorm is an incremental success story…one that takes just as much patience to fully understand and appreciate.
