ELMSFORD, N.Y., Jan. 27, 2015 -- Leading fitness and weight loss solutions provider Beachbody, LLC and EB Sport Group, a top provider of innovative sports and fitness equipment, will launch a full range of P90X® branded products to help fitness enthusiasts realize their goals. These high quality products range from strength-building bodyweight exercise equipment to warm-up and recovery items. In addition, select products will include individual P90X®workouts on DVD to pair with the equipment.
"We are excited to be partnering with EB to take P90X® into retail stores, and help the brand reach a new audience with this premium line of equipment," says Jon Congdon, Co-Founder, President & CMO, Beachbody, LLC. "For the past decade, fitness-minded individuals who love a challenge have been motivated by the life-changing results P90X can deliver. In response to this enthusiasm, we created a diverse product line to help enhance their workouts."
Launched in 2004, P90X® has sold nearly five million copies and has motivated consumers to "Get Absolutely Ripped in 90 Days." P90X® is a dynamic, high energy commercial home exercise regimen created by Tony Horton, known for a high level of intensity. The new P90X® equipment line is a comprehensive collection of durable, efficient multi-purpose products, to help individuals improve their performance and maximize their results from P90X or any other workout regimen. Given the line's variety, users can customize and enhance their workout with just one product.
"Given the awareness of P90X® among fitness enthusiasts, we're excited to make this brand even more accessible," says Tricia Norton, President of EB Brands Fitness Division. "Beachbody and Tony Horton bring unique expertise to the home fitness category and we look forward to working together to further develop the product line."
