For this month’s Champions Spotlight we’re happy and excited to introduce you to AdvoCare® Distributor Jarrod Fritz.
Jarrod Fritz seems to do it all – He’s a professional wrestling referee, owns a massage therapy business, and was part of the massage therapy team for the women’s soccer team in the 2008 games – and he’s also made his way onto reality television (Broken Skull Challenge). Jarrod discovered AdvoCare in July 2014, and through it all he says AdvoCare products have been a solution for him and so many others.

Seeing the smiling faces of the people I get the opportunity to work with and help along their health and wellness journey.
How did you discover AdvoCare®?
A friend I knew opened a Crossfit® gym in my area. I was marketing for my massage therapy business and asked if I could promote it there. He suggested I work out at the gym for a month or two to build relationships. One day while I was working out, he mentioned AdvoCare. I’d heard of the company years ago but wasn’t sure I was interested. About a month later, I picked his brain on supplements and tried Spark (because I had forgotten my pre-workout drink). Once I learned more about the supplements and saw people getting results, the rest is history.
How did you get started sharing AdvoCare® after you signed up as a Distributor?
Because I am in the health and wellness industry, the last thing I wanted to do was recommend products that I wasn’t educated on. I took some time to learn as much as I could and would share with friends and family very casually. Once I invested time into learning and became more knowledgeable, that’s when I started sharing more!
What do you do for a living? Does AdvoCare® incorporate into it?
Yes! I am a massage therapist, personal trainer, massage educator and professional wrestling referee. They all have connections to health and wellness, so it’s a perfect fit! I always share if I feel AdvoCare is a good solution. I don’t force it, but if I’m talking to someone who could benefit I definitely share. With my background in training and sports nutrition, I have the credibility to do so.
How do you share the products today?
I share in conversation with others who address problems that they have with their health and wellness; I simply try to offer a solution and move forward from there.
What is your number one tip for sharing AdvoCare®?
Be sincere and genuine.
What’s something you have learned through AdvoCare®?
I’ve learned how to better listen to people and build relationships over time.
How have you grown since first becoming a Distributor?
I’ve grown by leaps and bounds. I have really embraced frequent personal development to not only help myself and my family, but also to convey that information and knowledge to help others do just the same.
What is your favorite (non-monetary) part of being with AdvoCare®?
Building relationships with good people who help this world become a better place.
How has your health and fitness journey evolved over time?
It’s constantly evolving and changing – I am a sponge for knowledge in all facts of health and wellness, so I’m constantly on the lookout for how I can develop and help others.
What do you typically do to stay active/fit?
I have a home gym, so three to four days a week I’m doing some sort of lifting. I am always doing something. I love trying new thing. I taught and coached CrossFit® and powerlifting for several years, and I’ve been a runner. I’m currently training for a “Strongman” competition.
What advice would you give to a new Distributor just starting out?
Invest the time into learning about the products, the people you’ll be working with, the issues they have and how you can be a solution. Stop trying to sell something, instead, find solutions. Not everything works for everyone. Learn which products can help each person, and go from there.
You just earned Hawaii! What was it like working toward that and finding out you were a first time trip earner?
To be honest, I have never been focused on incentive trips or prizes, although they are very nice. I’ve always been focused on providing the best support and help that I can for my customers. By doing so, earning the perks is an amazing bonus, particularly because I am now able to do something extremely special for my wife on her birthday this year!
What brings you the most joy in life?
Helping others and sharing knowledge and love so that I can try to leave this world a little bit better than I came into it.
Any recipes or mixtures you enjoy using AdvoCare® products?
I like mixing Spark® and AdvoCare Arginine Extreme®, and BioCharge® mixed with AdvoCare Rehydrate® for intra workout. I also like to use Ready-to-Drink Protein as milk for cereal and enjoy this oatmeal recipe:
Mix and put in fridge for a couple hours.
