U.S. Fitness Manufacturer and Educator Body Bar Systems to Launch Swedish Dealership with Gymgrossisten


Introducing Two Key Products to the Fitness Market

BOULDER, Colorado, USA. – July 11, 2007 - Body Bar Systems, Inc., a premier fitness company specializing in products and educational tools for fitness enthusiasts of all ages and abilities, and Gymgrossisten, one of the largest retail companies for health and supplement products online in Scandinavia, today announced the first Body Bar Systems dealership in Sweden with Gymgrossisten. This partnership will result in the availability of two new products in Sweden; the well-established and ground-breaking The Body Bar Classic® and the innovative The Body Bar Mini®.

Successful Body Bar® distributorships have previously been launched in Australia, Canada, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, South America, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States.

“Body Bar Systems supports our distributors, not only with top quality products but also with superior education and marketing support,” said Arno Niemand, owner and chairman of Body Bar Systems. “We look forward to working with Gymgrossisten, and we are confident that Body Bar Systems’ products will help them profitably expand their already impressive product lines.”

Body Bar Systems is a leading fitness equipment manufacturer from the U.S. with 20 years experience in the fitness industry. Best known for its original Body Bar®, which serves as the foundation product for the company, the company also has a strong influence as a fitness educator. Before the Body Bar there was no “weighted bar” for use in group exercise and personal training. Launched in 1987, it can now be found in over 20,000 clubs, personal training studios, physical therapy centers, spas, military bases, high schools and colleges and homes worldwide. The Body Bar is a well established brand name in the U.S. and an essential tool in the health industry.

By providing POP displays, online education and wall charts, Body Bar Systems will work with Dealers to provide the tools needed to effectively sell its product line.

“Sometimes fitness facilities have difficulty attracting some people to the weight room area,” commented Katarina Claesson, director of sales and marketing, Body Bar Systems. ”This problem is solved when members have access to the Body Bars and don’t have to fight for space over by the dumbbells and heavy bars.”

“It was an easy choice for us,” added Ms. Claesson. “We feel confident that Gymgrossisten will help make The Body Bar a household name in Sweden, just like it is in the U.S.”

Gymgrossisten earned a Gazell Award in 2005 and was named one of the most successful companies by the business magazine Dagens Industri in 2005.
