Dale has now opened three Nutrishop locations and plans to open more in the next couple years. Dale holds several nationally recognized certifications in personal training, sports nutrition, group training and massage therapy. Dale attributes his knowledge in the sports nutrition industry to the studies and articles from individuals such as Jose Antonio, Douglas Kalman, William Llewelyn and Will Brink, who he says have paved the way and set the standards in the sports nutrition industry.
