Tulsa, Oklahoma (January 19, 2012) â€“ GoFit, the United States’ leading supplier of handheld fitness equipment, is pleased to announce an exciting partnership with B-FIT Distribution, a wholly owned division of Schure Sports Inc. Based in Toronto, Ontario, Schure Sports has been a highly respected supplier of superior- quality products to the sports and athletic industry in Canada and around the globe since 1982. This new collaboration will launch B-FIT Distribution as the first and exclusive Canadian distributor of GoFit fitness products to Canadian retailers. Likewise the deal will put product and world-class instructional content directly into the hands of Canadian at-home fitness consumers.
As the premier provider of handheld fitness solutions, GoFit offers over 200 quality, fitness productsâ€”ranging from stability balls, yoga mats, power tubes and kettlebells, to weighted resistance, balance and core performance products. GoFit also offers world-class training methods with strategic partnerships from top experts in the industry through instructional DVDs and guides that accompany each gadget. B-FIT Distribution is an all-new branch of Schure Sports Inc and is dedicated solely to the lucrative yoga and home fitness markets. Aimed to complement Schure’s already-stellar roster of sports and athletic apparel brands, the distribution of GoFit’s leading products will continue the company’s tradition of providing top quality products and exceptional service.
â€œGoFit is the latest addition to our growing group of brands distributed by B-FIT Distribution. They are the best exercise manufacturer in North America, and we are thrilled to present their products to Canadian retailers,â€ says Franklin Gwartz of B-FIT Distribution.
GoFit co-founder and owner Richard Davis says that this new venture into Canadian markets marks the first time that Canadian customers will have the opportunity to purchase GoFit products from a Canadian warehouse, in Canadian dollars, without needing to import from the United States.
â€œWe’ve been working on really tapping in to the Canadian market for some time now. Previously Canadian consumers would have to purchase online from U.S. e-commerce sites or import directly from U.S. retailers. B-FIT will make our products directly available to leading retailers across Canada and as a result, consumers will have the ability to walk down the street and purchase our fitness items at their favorite neighborhood sports or athletic stores,â€ says Davis.
