–Nautilus/Bowflex, HOIST, SportsArt Fitness and Vision itness Receive Top Honors —

LOS ANGELES – October 27, 2008 —  ShapeYou.com announces this year’s GearAwards™ winners in the fitness categories, with Nautilus/Bowflex, HOIST, and SportsArt Fitness receiving top honors. 

And, to help gym owners and fitness distributors find these products, ShapeYou is also launching its new Wholesale Trade Directory this month. 

The GearAwards™ is a program that recognizes products as being the best in their industry. “It’s the quality of the products that count, not the size of the company,” said Tony Hale, President & CEO, ShapeYou. “Some of these smaller companies are where you can find some of the best products.  But still, some of the winning companies being recognized by the GearAwards™ this year include pillars in the industry like Nautilus/Bowflex, HOIST, SportsArt Fitness, Vision Fitness and more. “ 

Built specifically for the natural health and fitness industry, the wholesale trade directory allows qualified wholesale buyers to browse products and contact the manufacturers directly to set up new accounts for their stores, gyms or distribution channels.  “We don’t actually sell products on our site,” said Hale. “It’s more like a dating site for natural health and fitness products. We just bring everyone together.”
