ABOUT US & STORE HRS 2018-09-10T15:40:06+00:00

I’m Darren Anselmo, a certified personal trainer & Classic Bodybuilder with over 15 years experience. My friend and former business partner Clayton Johnson (Bodybuilder) and I formed Monster Nutrition in 2010 inside a gym in Farmingdale, NY. Our goal was to provide the sports supplement retail industry with exceptional customer service, knowledge and low prices for vitamins and sports supplements.

In October 2012, the gym where our store was located abruptly closed down without warning and left us with no place to go. Times were rough. Clayton decided to pursue other interests and ended up landing a job with a major supplement distributor. I decided to keep this idea going and began taking phone orders and delivering supplements with my personal vehicle to the houses and businesses of customers for the next 6 months until I was able to find a new location. During the process of locating a new storefront, my buddy Ron Fairclough approached me with an idea to really bring something great to an area with minimal supplement stores. We ended up building Monster in the North West Dr/Merritts Rd. shopping center in Farmingdale, NY.

At Monster, our employees are extremely knowledgeable in regard to training and supplements, and provide every aspect of helping an individual achieve their fitness goals through vitamins, sports supplements and diet consultation. Many of our employees are in fact competing athletes or are living the lifestyle of one. Rest assured, you will always get quality service at Monster.
