SUTTON, MA January 2, 2007 – Fitness EM, LLC, a leader in the women's fitness equipment industry since 1997, has been recognized by Health Magazine winning the “Best Home Gym Award under $1500 for 2007”.

“Not only is this foldaway unit designed for a woman's body, but it's so elegant it could be a piece of art. Includes everything you need to get strong, including dumbbells, a cable system for lower-body exercises, a multi position bench, and an exercise DVD and poster.”

The empower em40 Home Gym was one of only two products chosen for this specific category as part of Health Magazine's The Best of Fitness Awards. Other categories included sneakers, apparel, gear, and workout DVDs. Over 1000 products were tested to come up with this list of the best 35 buys for 2007.
