Competition. Athletes seek it, fear it, need it.
Athletes know competition doesn’t just happen on the field. It happens on the track. In the weight room. In the gym.
Athletes love the 6am run. They love the midway point of a plank. They love the rush, the sweat, the pump. They love beating their personal best. They love two-a-days. Stadiums on 100-degree days and track work on 20-degree winter nights.
Athletes love their sport. Many will sacrifice anything for it. But now they don’t have to.
We’re the elite. We believe in science. We believe in transparency. We believe in supplements that work as hard as the athletes who take them. We believe in living with intention – and leaving nothing on the table. We believe in bigger, faster, stronger, safer.
We believe athletes deserve a different kind of supplement.
We are AthElite
Chief Executive Officer ＆ Co-founder
While pursuing his B.S. in Biology and spending his post college years as a physique athlete working as a personal trainer and in multiple roles within the sports nutrition supplement industry, Sean Sullivan is quite familiar with sports nutrition and the need to give your body the sustenance to succeed. As a young athlete, he took the supplements he could afford, didn’t read nutrition labels and didn’t think about the long-term effects on his health. When he reached his thirties, and became a father to twins, he started to see the need for a safer supplement. So he created his own formulas, using the raw ingredients he knew were safe, effective and compatible. These formulas became the first iteration of AthElite. This company is the result of Sean’s lifework, his passion and his commitment to sport.
Chief Operations Officer ＆ Co-Founder
As a former senior-level officer of a sports supplements retailer, Michael McCabe intimately knows the business of supplements. He’s seen the rise in consumer demand for a different kind of supplement, one that’s safe and proven to perform. It’s the void from which AthElite emerged. As COO, Michael oversees aspects of everything from production to fulfillment and strategic growth. An enthusiastic outdoorsman, Michael trains in the gym to prepare himself for whatever nature throws his way.
