About

John Mitchum is the CEO and Founder of Combat Muscle Nutrition.

He is a veteran of both the U.S. Navy where he served most of his time in Japan, and the U.S. Army with multiple combat deployments as an Infantryman. John has been passionate about lifting weights since he was 17 years old. John was always smaller in size to most. Early in his weight lifting years he started to just put on some more weight, build some muscle and increase confidence. He began taking on powerlifting when he was in the Army and even competed in his first competition. 

John still continues to train this day even after being medically separated from the Army with back issues. The passion he has for weight lifting is a fire that will never go out.
