The web-based business and coaching solution delivers products and education that will enhance the knowledge, skills, and abilities of fitness professionals and provides increased revenue opportunities.
With HFPN, certified fitness professionals have access to online resources that help create custom exercise and nutrition programs for each unique client. Included in the membership is a members-only discount eStore as well as an optional personal e-store for health fitpros to sell best-in-class nutrition products and top-of-line equipment, while also earning commissions on each sale. As the only fitness manufacturer partnered with HFPN at this time, GoFit's full line of over 120 hand held fitness products are exclusively available to HFPN members. In addition to the e-commerce store, tools made available for clients include tailor-made nutrition programs, a complete health and fitness-learning center and educational clinical research.
"We are truly thrilled to be partnered with GoFit, a company that shares the HFPN vision of delivering health and fitness through the power of personal coaching," says HFPN President, Ben Tucker. "We believe in the value of having science behind product innovation and education to enhance results. We look forward to growing our businesses together."
GoFit co-founder, Richard Davis is also excited to participate in this new endeavor and has high hopes for what HFPN will bring to the fitness industry.
"Very rarely do we have the opportunity to connect in an online community of thousands of fitness professionals with the added bonus of access to the end consumer—their clients. We are so excited to get our full line of products in the hands of folks who are out there, everyday, working their tails off at the gym to meet their personal health goals," says Davis. "HFPN is not only a medium to sell our products but it is an invaluable tool that allows us to interact with top professionals in our field. I believe HFPN will assist in making the fitness industry more well-rounded as a whole."
