The club, whose name can be revealed only when shared through a club member, offers products sold through a personal network of members dedicated to helping people live a healthier lifestyle.

“I sell these products because I use these products,” says Pontelandolfo. “It’s an easy and rewarding job to recommend products I know and love to the people I know and love!”
Pontelandolfo’s mission is to help people live a healthier lifestyle while saving money at the same time.

By eliminating the costs of distribution, advertising and delivery to stores, our company saves our customers money and creates customer loyalty.”
Pontelandolfo always has her eye out for health-oriented people that are interested in becoming representatives, as well as for members of the BuxMont community interested in being introduced to high quality, cost-effective and eco-conscious products that are delivered straight to the customer’s home.
