Nutritional aid offered at HD Supplements

In a perfect world, people would get plenty of sleep, stay hydrated and have their required amount of fruits, vegetables and protein. And while most people get some of the vitamins and minerals that are essential to helping their body function and perform as it should, others need a little extra boost.
Based on diet, a lot of people don’t get the recommended amount of important nutrients from food alone, or their exercise schedule increases a nutrient need for optimum performance.
That’s what HD Supplements, a new business located in downtown Corydon at 118 W. Walnut St., is hoping to help people with.
Owned by William (GJ) and Haley Wilt, HD Supplements offers the products and the education in all things regarding nutritional supplements. Inside the store, customers can find pre-workout, amino acids, protein, weight loss supplements, all-purpose energy supplements, vitamins, energy drinks, protein snacks and HD Supplement branded apparel as well.
Haley said the pair have had a passion for health and fitness for a long time. She said they love that Corydon has numerous places to obtain fitness goals — citing the YMCA of Harrison County, Anytime Fitness and CrossFit Enapay as great places to get a good workout in — but they always thought there was a lack in a place to purchase sports nutrition supplements.
“Not only is there a need for these certain products, but also a need for someone who is knowledgeable about the products,” Wilt said. “Sure, you could purchase anything online, but you may not know what you are getting or how it actually affects your body.”
That’s where the Wilts enter, as they both have put in work to educate themselves about the products they sell at HD Supplements.
“Over the years, both William and myself have both taken several different supplements so we have obtained knowledge about them and how they affect the body,” Wilt said. “If there is a supplement that we carry that we have not tried, we research it. We don’t want to just sell you the product; we want to help you understand what the product can actually do for you. HD Supplements wants to be a part of a healthier community.”
Another unique offering at HD Supplements is it sells prepared Macroman Meals daily. These are healthy, already portioned, single-serve meals that can be ready to eat in less than five minutes. Each of the meals, purchased from the Louisville-based company, uses high quality ingredients, are packed with protein and are prepared by chefs.
Wilt said the couple is currently working to add more outdoor seating options at HD Supplements so that people can purchase a meal, heat it up in store and enjoy it while sitting on the patio. She also said they are working to provide smoothies and refresher drinks to their offerings, and that people should expect those to come soon.
The supplement store is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
