Founded in 2009 ATP Science is the brainchild of Matthew Legge, Jeff and Toni Doidge, and in this episode I have a chat about supplements, longevity, muscle gain, fat loss, training and much, much more with Matt and Jeff.

ATP Science Head Scientist Matt Legge has more than a decade of creating formulas for well-known companies in the health supplement industry. Matt became frustrated when his formulations were constantly altered to fit in with marketing ideas or reduce manufacturing costs. Seeing a gap in the market, Matt knew if he could work in a company where people and products where placed ahead of profit he could make a real difference. Matt had a simple yet profound idea; base his formulations on science first.

Jeff and Toni Doidge were the founders of a supplement retail store that opened its doors in 2002. They believe the foundation for success is based on customer service and exceeding the customer’s expectations. With that simple strategy; focusing on the “customer first” ideology, their store at the time became one of Australia’s most successful sports supplement retailers. Matt, Jeff and Toni met by chance in 2009 and soon after ATP Science was born.
