BH Fitness Continues Rapid Growth: First Half Sales Up 33 Percent

Foothill Ranch, CA, July 22, 2010 --( Leading Orange County fitness equipment manufacturer BH Fitness, a division of BH North America Corporation, announced today that it recorded 33.3 percent revenue growth for the first two quarters of 2010 over the same period last year. This significant growth is the result of strong sales in the light commercial and retail segments following the successful launch of its new Signature Series cardio line.

“Our growth in the first half of 2010 can be attributed to our hard working team and the partnerships we have created with our loyal dealer network,” said John Coyle, vice president of BH North America. “BH Fitness’ commitment to developing new, reliable products has allowed us to grow our already impressive network of retailers.”

The strong financial growth is a testament to BH Fitness’ continued emphasis on their product offering. During the first quarter of 2010, BH Fitness successfully launched the Signature Series cardio line of ellipticals, bikes and treadmills. With commercial-quality features at home use prices and specifications the Signature Series has provided a boost to BH Fitness retail sales, further solidifying relationships with their expansive dealer network. The company also streamlined its light commercial cardio offering to better meet market needs, reaffirming its commitment to producing high quality, reliable products that deliver on the features most requested by customers.

During a time when other manufacturers are scaling back their business and new product offerings, BH Fitness continues to expand their operations and sales team and grow their presence in the commercial and retail fitness markets.
