FOREST PARK, Ill. (January 9, 2007) – Body-Solid®, Inc. entered the new year with a bang—receiving a “Best Buy” rating from Consumers Digest magazine for its popular G4I Iso-Flex home gym. The G4I, a midrange price selection, was one of only three home gyms included in the January/February 2007 issue which features an article on top-rated home-fitness equipment. Backed by Body-Solid's unique In-Home Lifetime Warranty, the commercially rated G4I gym was characterized as a “well-designed unit from a respected maker” and praised for combining “a boatload of traditional fix-path movements with ‘functional' exercises.”

According to Co-CEO Stuart Glenn, the recent recognition by Consumers Digest is further validation of the company's long-standing commitment to high-quality, technically advanced fitness equipment at a great value.

“We have always remained true to our founding goal--provide consumers with safe and solid products that deliver real performance benefits at a competitive price,” Glenn said.

The Body-Solid G4I home gym ($1,899 MSRP) combines all of the advantages of a free-weight dumbbell workout with the safety and convenience of a selectorized machine. The patent-pending Iso-Flexâ„¢ 3D-motion press arms allows the user to simultaneously work both primary and secondary muscles. Built for users of all sizes and fitness levels, the G4I delivers more than 60 exercises for a total body workout.

The G4I joins a long list of Body Solid gyms that have previously received notice from similar consumer publications, including the currently available G6B, G8I, GDCC200 and EXM1500.
