Passionate About Protein

In 2008, fitness professional Sean Marszalek and food science expert Devenee Schumacher looked around at the growing number of protein supplement products, and didn’t like what they saw. Too many artificial ingredients, artificial sweeteners, inferior protein concentrates, and very few options for people with certain dietary restrictions such as diabetes. Frankly, Sean couldn’t find anything in the market that he could recommend to his health-conscious clients.

That’s when they decided, it’s About Time.

Sean and Devenee formed SDC Nutrition and launched the About Time brand of high quality whey protein isolate products. Through perseverance, refinement, and a fanatical belief in providing superior protein supplements for a healthy lifestyle, they have built a passionate and growing customer base across the world.

Meet The Team

Sean Marszalek

Sean Marszalek, Founder and CEO

Early on as a fitness trainer, Sean understood that what you put into your body was just as important as how you physically trained your body. Achieving personal fitness goals and maintaining an active lifestyle demanded proper nutrition. His extensive research on the Glycemic Index convinced him that most commercially sold supplements were cutting corners and misleading the public with health claims. Not one to simply go along with the status quo, Sean made a game-changing decision. If no one offered a naturally pure supplement he could endorse for his clients, he would create one himself.
