When I was in Elementary school I began to appreciate the benefits of being physically active because I was enrolled in Tae Kwon Do classes year round and I noticed it helped me to become stronger and more flexible than my peers. I started lifting in 8th grade after being asked by my peers to play sports and knowing full well from my years of martial arts that proper training had a direct correlation to improved performance.
After years of training in Tae Kwon Do and Kickboxing, then playing a year of College football as a walk-on; I realized that what I loved most was the body’s ability to change with the training stimulus it was presented with. After spending a lot of time with the team strength and conditioning coach I fell in love with Exercise Physiology which lead to the completion of my degree in this field at Florida International University.
My new found passion for bodybuilding has lead me to competing in natural competitions and getting involved in the sports supplement industry. Dustin is the Head Formulator for Betancourt Nutrition.

Long overdue is an intelligently rebellious company capable of saving the bodybuilding community from atrophy, not only of muscle but of mind. The goal of Betancourt Nutrition is to provide the hardcore bodybuilding nonconformist with an alternative to the homogenized sameness of the suburban supplement scenery by developing “addictively sweet” and “immediately anabolic” formulas capable of reliably re-charging the senses.
Training, recovering, building, improving –Betancourt Nutrition has broken out of the soulless, tasteless mold of contemporary supplement formulas and made the achievement of these goals intensely real and flavorful. Setting Betancourt Nutrition further apart from the “herd” is the fact that it has its own manufacturing laboratory where its team of expert nutritional architects formulates, tests and certifies every supplement with the attention to detail, passion and dogged perseverance of makers of fine wine.
