The transformation of Vince Pitstick from addict to successful entrepreneur is not without wonder. The man who is an owner of six successful businesses and is considered an intelligent and creative mind didn’t have the ideal childhood. In fact, the irony is it was his childhood that contributed to his inspiration to create change, thus making him what he is today.
Vince had to grow up in a divorced home. With only a single mom raising him, he faced hardships growing up with obsessive-compulsive disorder, which later led to his falling into drug addiction. He had to undergo many recovery sessions in order to achieve his normal life.
He fought with different ailments valiantly and in the end, he won his battle with addiction and has been clean since. While pursuing an academic career in medicine, he first started working with Metagenics with a functional medicine consultant role. Vince’s opportunities to work closely with physicians and doctors by searching and forming new ways to heal others with addiction and bolster the drug prevention system.
After a significant period of working at Metagenics, Vince left the company and opened Nutrition Dynamic to pursue his health and fitness career. He formed programs in light of functional nutrition and holistic healing, with overview of the entire body’s systems. A different approach than many other trainers, and though he started with only six clients, in a matter of a few years his client base expanded from hundreds to thousands globally. In the meanwhile, he started NuEthix Formulations, a now fast-growing supplement company.
Vince is also known as the Metabolic Mentor, which inspired him to a health coaching training institute for people to receive their certification in functional nutrition and become a practitioner themselves. The Metabolic Mentor University provides advanced fitness, nutrition and wellness education courses formulated and instructed by Vince. This includes topics such as understanding how hormones are affected by nutrition and training, metabolic damage & weight loss resistance, ways to help clients heal inflammation, autoimmunity, gut health topics such as SIBO, parasites, & Crohn’s, as well as many other health-issue related lectures. There are currently 150 students enrolled in the certification program and more are expected soon as the institute goes public in April of 2022.
His motive behind creating these businesses is the promotion of health coaching and ideals of functional nutrition. #the1in100 is Vince’s MMU community staple, as the idea summarized is to have 1 health coach for every 100 people, in order to successfully create the impact that will affect the health of generations. Vince wants it to be formally included in the medical field, reasoning that things like health coaching have “become a necessity in the wake of growing lifestyle diseases in the already pandemic-stricken world”. He says that it’s a work in progress as he’s working with many different organizations to make this dream a reality.
From undergoing a toxic childhood to manifesting his dream, the transformation of Vince is an awe-inspiring one. And although he faced trials and tribulations, he rose from the ashes and has been exceeding at his craft. Credit is due where credit is due, and this goes to the unwavering, trailblazing, Vince Pitstick.
