I am now proudly affiliated with the friendly folks over at Bodybuilding.com…
This site has Everything
- Store… from supplements to gym gear and videos, its here. It is secure and ships fast. The pricing is rather remarkable, too.You (It takes a lot for me to complain, but this wasn’t my stuff,) I didn’t like it- and when I told the phone rep about it, he quickly offered me a replacement product credit and I used it later. The service is remarkable, as every time I have called I was able to get information about just about everything on the site and further insight into the supplements- Everyone that I spoke with had some sort of experience in sports. They are located in the USA.
- Information & articles. want to see how to do a dead lift? how about a pushup? theres video and articles about every exercise on the site. Many trainers are writing for BB.com, and there are plenty of resources about all of the ingredients that are in the items in the store. There are quite a few contributing writers. every time I go into the forums, I discover new people and ideas. A great place for inspiration, and to cross reference information.
- Bodyspace– this is a highly underestimated tool for athletes. Basically it is a fitness blog- loaded with tools- fitness trackers, body calculators, a place to show your progress photos and a network- not unlike the ever popular facebook, where you can add friends and make updates, except the difference is that this is in a community of athletes – allwith like minded goals. You may find some of your favorite athletes online, so go check it out, make some new friends, and start your own “bodyspace” to keep a diary of your enthusiastic ambition. I find it quite inspiring to see the stories and dedication here.
When I was building FitbodyGuru.com as a location site for my personal training service, I did not have any computer skills, just an ambition and a vision. I did not want to re invent the wheel, so to speak, of a fitness site when Bodybuilding.com was already so comprehensive & complete doing what I already wanted.& then some. They have helped me thru the years so it is with a great feeling that I can recommend them to everyone here, that I use them for what I need and I trust them… and I like them. In a world where customer service is otherwise non existent, here is an american company doing an amazing job helping thousands of athletes in not only USA but in canada and europe too, yet keeping each person feeling satisfied, that, my friends is a tall order to fulfill. Go ahead and check them out!
I have recommended to my clients and I will recommend it to anyone else, too.
When you visit Bodybuilding.com from one of my pages in my site, It helps me support my efforts of writing and maintaining FitBodyGuru and TheARTofFit. It is a quality, american web buisness and they have my highest recommendation!
Why only 9? you say? ( because I give honest reviews. Without critique, we wouldnt be able to improve anything!)
caveats– a few contributor writers had some misinformation in some articles, either by misplacing a “not” where one should be or other possible typo that changes the meaning significantly. and – with 10,000 articles I suppose oversight is cumbersome and tedious. I recommend my clients cross referencing information, especially with your personal trainer.-and vise versa- cross reference any of your information, always!!!
It is a VAST website. sometimes navigating to what you want, exactly, can be tough.
*e-mail me and I will do my best to help you narrow down your search. These are the consultations that I offer my clients and anyone else who needs assistance in this matter- however, the support at bodybuilding.com and the customer service is REMARKABLE with this. Fitness is an underestimated science with many variables and often with medical type vocabulary and physiological concepts that can be hard to understand and downright confusing with so many different styles of training out there. with more than one way to reach for your personal potential, there are plenty of options with bodybuilding.com, and where having a personal trainer can come in to help.
good luck with your journey!!!
