ABOUT TKO NUTRITION
TKO was born in March of 2005 as a family business created by folks with a passion for fitness. April and Rich Sicola-Stone and Bryanna have ran the stores with a loyal crew since day one. Specializing in doing what ‘they’ (the corporate world and websites), they bring attention to detail. Providing products that are hard to get in a timely manner.
In addition to their steadfast dedication to doing what ‘they’ can’t….or won’t for that matter; they’ve dug their heels in to Austin and the surrounding community. They have been leaders of the annual American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and not only contribute time but monetarily as well. A portion of each profit from their top selling products goes to promote suicide awareness. Each member of the team has mentored at local school districts. TKO NUTRITION provides discounts and care packages along with a hand-written note to all our military and law enforcement service men and women. TKO NUTRITION has its foot FIRMLY planted in efforts that raise community partners and for the second year in a row, TKO NUTRITION has been the only nutrition store recognized by Mayor Steve Adler as a healthy workplace. We believe in the intrinsic value of what we do so listing our accolades cheapens what it is we are trying to do…build a community by example. TKO NUTRITION was also voted Best Smoothie in Austin and Runner-up for Best Personal Trainer/Nutritionist. These are just a few of the ways TKO NUTRITION has stayed relevant while corporate competition comes and goes. We stay alive because this is our passion, not our job.
ABOUT OUR OWNERS

He’s been guest-host for KLRU and KVUE stations and has written several published articles on fitness, including his work with MD. His network working within the fighting and bodybuilding community only transitioned into success for his clients for if for some reason he doesn’t know the answer, it’s a call away. He’s trained a UFC HW Champ (Ricco Rodriguez who he brought from 325 lbs back doesn’t to 205 lbs), and IFBB legend (Lee Priest) and every type of average Joe one could envision. He’s specialized in male and family coaching but the thousands of testimonials would leave us little room for any of this cool stuff.
