Online Fitness Value Proposition
The Online Fitness website was launched in early 2004 to cater to the ever increasing appetite of consumers for quality fitness, healthcare, wellness, beauty, and outdoor/adventure products that lend themselves to being purchased easily, conveniently, and securely over the Internet. A steadfast commitment to meet this demand while maintaining quality brands and providing superior customer service has allowed Online Fitness to quickly gain traction in the marketplace and build a unique and loyal customer following.
Convenience - Online Fitness' customers can shop 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Online Fitness ships 96.6% of all orders received the same day, and over 99% are shipped within 48 hours of receipt. With regional distribution centers located strategically throughout the country, customers receive their order in an average of 2-3 days (well ahead of the industry average of 5-7 days). The Online Fitness website allows customers to track their order every step of the way from our dock to their doorstep.
Selection - Online Fitness offers a wide variety of fitness, healthcare, wellness, beauty, and outdoor/adventure products. In most cases Online Fitness stocks entire product lines in all sizes, colors, and configurations, rather than merely carrying the top few sellers. The breadth of the company's product offering and commitment to stock in-depth sets Online Fitness apart from the competition.
Fitness At Your Fingertips - Online Fitness is committed to delivering the best possible shopping experience by consistently focusing on innovation, design, and utility. Online Fitness delivers an intuitive, user friendly website that allows consumers to easily navigate through the selection and purchasing process. The site offers a wealth of information to the consumer including: shopping guides, product comparisons, detailed product descriptions, as well as FAQ's, product images and downloadable product specification manuals to help ensure the customer orders the product best suited to their needs. This type of detailed information is simply not offered in most traditional "bricks and mortar" stores.
Service & Security - Online Fitness has a live web-based chat feature and knowledgeable customer service representatives available by phone to answer any questions that may arise. The company does NOT sell customers' personal information or share it with third parties. Online Fitness servers employ encrypted SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology to ensure user information is safe and secure.
Online Fitness participates in the health, fitness, beauty and sporting goods industries. Together these industries represent a significant segment of the overall U.S. economy.
