BOSU® Launches Revitalized Web Site

Fresh Clean Look and New, Downloadable Content for Exercise Enthusiasts, Trainers, Youth, Active Agers and Physical Therapists

ASHLAND, OH--(Marketwired - April 02, 2013) -  Hedstrom Fitness, makers of the BOSU, recently debuted its revitalized, easier-to-navigate, mobile-friendly BOSU web site (http://www.bosu.com) adding components to benefit its core trainer and fitness markets, as well as to attract youth, active ager, athlete and rehabilitation markets.

When BOSU first launched on the fitness scene, it represented a whole new way of thinking about how one trains. It was and is about exercises people can perform to make their bodies work better in everyday life. BOSU started the functional integrated training revolution in helping people get in shape, age better and maintain mobility while also improving their vitality by training muscles based on the way they are used in everyday life. The revamped web site aims to make this real to growing number of users.

With a contemporary look, the site presents new features including:

  • Robust video vault with weekly workout videos
  • Articles and information for fitness, rehabilitation, youth and active aging markets
  • Events calendar with workshops and trainings with the BOSU International Master Trainer team
  • New BOSU Complete app link
  • Instantly downloadable DVD content available to customers for computers, smart phones or tablets with the online purchase of DVDs
  • Social sharing, product ratings and reviews
  • BOSU partnerships page
  • Special offers
  • BOSU newsletter with the latest exercises and health and wellness research on functional fitness

Plus, it offers a more customer-friendly, fresher, faster version of:

  • BOSU store with new online warranty registration capabilities
  • Popular content from its original site explaining the science behind BOSU

"People are passionate about sharing BOSU because it truly is a great total-body, functional fitness workout, either on its own or with other pieces of equipment," said Mike Kelly CFO, Hedstrom Fitness. "We wanted to revitalize the site to better integrate BOSU into the lives of people of all ages who want to be fit and healthy. The revamped site is an authoritative source of quality information that's easy to access, transport and share, plus it includes exciting content for markets just discovering the BOSU like youth, active agers and physical therapists."
