COTTAGE GROVE, Wis. (November 2, 2012) – Horizon Fitness was named “Head of the Class Best Buy” for sporting goods grade fitness equipment by Fitness Professor, a leading online resource for independent fitness equipment reviews. Fitness Professor has built their reputation on specialty and commercial reviews; this award marks their entry into reviews of fitness equipment available from sporting goods stores and other mass merchants.

“We pride ourselves on designing and manufacturing fitness equipment that is durable, easy-to-use and provides optimal performance for maximum value,” said Mike Olson, executive vice president of retail for Johnson Health Tech NA, the parent company of Horizon Fitness. “This award speaks to our superior quality and value proposition.” Fitness Professor’s expansion into reviewing fitness equipment available at sporting goods stores was prompted by their desire to help those looking for a quality piece of fitness equipment at a good value.

“From the beginning, we’ve prided ourselves on helping consumers find the very best products to make their journey to better health the best it can be,” said Derek McCormick, founder of Fitness Professor. “Rather than give up on their fitness goals, these new reviews will help those looking for a quality product at retailers that fits their budget.” As part of one of the largest exercise equipment manufacturers in the world, Horizon has over 30 years of experience producing quality equipment built to last.
