Tulsa, Oklahoma (August 23, 2010) – Bob Harper, Co-host of NBC's worldwide mega-hit The Biggest Loser, and one of the most trusted and recognizable lifestyle personalities in the world, has teamed up with GoFit, the nation's leading provider of at home fitness solutions. The collaboration is a multi-product engagement that will include unique and innovative equipment designs with world-class digital media. With 20-years of experience as a fitness authority and Hollywood trainer, Harper uses his "inside-out" philosophy to motivate clients to adopt new habits that promote physical, emotional and spiritual health. The first of many Bob Harper endorsed products in the series is GoFit's patent pending Contour Kettlebells. Ergonomically designed with a unique contour shape, each Contour Kettlebell comes equipped with a 30-minute Bob Harper Kettlebell Workout DVD, designed and performed by Bob himself.
"We've always admired Bob's ability to help people empower themselves, which is right in line with our mission," says GoFit cofounder Richard Davis. "Bob motivates people to achieve the impossible — plus, he's a longtime user of kettlebells in his training." Noting that GoFit has been the premier provider of kettlebells and functional training for many years, Davis adds, "It makes sense that the preeminent force in handheld fitness would partner with the nation's leading fitness specialist. From a visibility standpoint, Bob is perfect for our brand."
"I've always loved kettlebells for their great combination of toning and fat-burning cardio," says Harper. "My Contour Kettlebells are ergonomically designed to eliminate strain on your forearm—they feel awesome when working out. Each kettlebell includes a workout DVD with world class instruction right out of the box, so you can start shredding fat and toning muscle instantly for real results."
This debut is only the beginning. Over the span of the next year, GoFit will continue to pump out more products, delivering boundary-pushing fitness tools and DVD instructional training by Harper.
The Bob Harper Contour Kettlebell collection will include seven different weights ranging from 7 to 45 pounds. The Contour Kettlebells will come in a variety of colors and will feature an innovative, patent-pending ergonomic design. This updated silhouette includes a sculpted shape that allows the product to rest comfortably on the wrist and forearm for increased functionality and reduced strain.
Prices for Bob Harper Contour Kettlebells range from $24.99-$99.99. The collection will be available in October in better sporting good retailers nationwide.
