FitnessCompared is an online platform that enables operators to access quotes, as well as compare costs of equipment

An online platform has been launched that enables health and fitness operators to access quotes and compare costs and equipment from a range of manufacturers.

FitnessCompared.co.uk creates quotes using the operator's specifications and like for like comparisons of its featured suppliers.

The platform also features a reviewing system, where customers can rate their experiences across a number of key areas, including product design, reliability, durability, service and after care.

The site includes commercial, home and refurbished equipment.

Daniel Jones, MD of FitnessCompared, said: "We've been developing this online platform for two and a half years, working with fitness equipment manufacturers to ensure buyers have access to their product portfolios and pricing, without the need for online research and to minimise face to face meetings.

"It give suppliers an opportunity to get in front of operators at the click of a button - similar to a tender process. Operators can pick as many suppliers as they want and compare by price, lead time and availability, as well as extras and customer reviews."

FitnessCompared.co.uk is a sister company to WeBuyGymEquipment.com.
