Since 1989... Thousands of health professionals
Since 1989, Private Label Fitness, founded by Art Rothafel, has been involved with the development of state-of-the art fitness and training programs and components for sports, medical and weight-management applications.
What Our Business Partners Say....
“I’ve been a customer of Art’s since I first began my career as a part-time personal trainer in 2001. I can remember calling Art up on the phone, having great conversations about my business, Art sharing his words of wisdom and experience, and purchasing batches of journals for my clients.
12 years later, I’m honored to say I still know Art, I still enjoy calling him on the phone and having great conversations about the business of fitness, and I consider him to be an outstanding leader in the fitness industry today.
There aren’t many people I know who’ve been consistent in their dedication to purpose and supporting entrepreneurs in the fitness industry for over a decade. Art is one of those rare people.
I highly recommend not only becoming his customer, but I encourage you to give him a call and meet a new friend. You’ll be glad you did.”

"I feel very privileged to have such amazing help available to me in my journey. And, more importantly knowing that, you, too, have the same drive and passion as I do of helping people -- by doing the right thing.
You’re an amazing and caring person! Thanks again, Art."
Body Elite Systems
Good Morning! Trust you are well and good. Look forward to video #4 in the total picture for this great endeavor to really make a mark for weight management. That's what we really need is a blueprint to help put together a total package to promote deliver and achieve excellence in the battle against obesity and for once tell the truth about real and lasting change in the body-composition arena.
Individually, it is nice to have the help and expertise of one's like yourself that put all the pieces of the puzzle together into one great bundle, as some of us don't have the tools literally to do this piece by piece and have it make any sense let alone present it in any real time format.
Thanks Art for all your hard work and getting this done to make it easier step-by-step.

I absolutely LOVE the MAP System...this is how I've done nutrition for over 6 years-it's how I was trained on a very expensive piece of software. Much planning ahead, putting together many components to my business plan with several branded tools and products.
Looking forward to working with you on a much bigger level both with my online business and my brick & mortar in the Midwest! thank you for all you do and your amazing customer service.
--From a very pleased customer,"
Thank you so much for all of your assistance with our order. The journals look great! I appreciate all of your help. We are loving the final product, so thank you again for your great work.

"I got my order. Thank you! It's perfect."
I have used the 12-week journals to propel me into winningThe Florida State Bodybuilding Masters Title as well as winning The NGA Masters National Bodybuilding Championships3 times -- the latest being in November 2012 in Coral Springs, Florida. I am currently training, hopefully, to win it for a 4th time in November 2013.
I am thoroughly convinced that if someone wants to get the most out of their training, that their training regimen and their food intake should be documented. If you are a serious athlete about your sport, you should be using these journals. It is the "last piece of the puzzle, and the most important piece" that will propel you to the top of your sport! I always recommend it to my clients and they love it. I am sure that you will too! I wouldn't train for any competition without it and you shouldn't either!"
Once again the Fitness journals proved their importance in my training regimen. By keeping track of my workouts and my food intake, the journal propelled me to finishing runner-up in two different classes at The Nationals all Natural Bodybuilding Championships on November 2, 2013. Being a successful Natural bodybuilder for many years, your fitness journals have taken me to the top of my bodybuilding game many times, and I couldn't have achieved what I've accomplished without them. I am certain of that! Thank you for such a great product! Thay are worth their weight iin gold for the serious athlete!
"We are absolutely thrilled with the branded marketing brochures. We were just discussing with our team this evening how Private Label Fitness has exceeded expectations on every offering and service."
Heather Binns of Full of Life Fitness shows us her super-premium branded formulas.
I love what you've been up to. You're really providing some super high quality.
Great Stuff. Thanks."
Thank you for the awesome fitness journals and fitness video. I have had the exercise and fitness journals for less than 12 hours, and I've already set up a few of my personal training clients with well defined fitness goals. I really think your fitness journals will take my personal training to a new level, separate myself from all the other personal trainers out there in this competitive market, and hold my clients accountable for their eating habits outside of their time with me. I can't thank you enough for all of your advice, help, and what I find the most value in - YOUR AWEOME CUSTOMER SERVICE."
Thank you, Art.
You're awesome, brother. Btw, I like the new shorter promo video. It'll be good to have the potion of both, in terms of putting together separate campaigns. WMU-101 will be one of my main online income streams for 2014.

... I love what you're doing. Always have. Always will. I love your mindset and your giving spirit. You, Sir, are a blessing to many!I also love what you said in your article. I think it was Reason #3: Training is Still a Personal Business. That was awesome! Truth! I may need to quote you, if you don't mind. I think the same mindset goes for group personal training vs bootcamps or large (way too large) groups. Thanks for all you do, Art. Praying that all you put your hands to is blessed and multiplies! Yep, shear.....

Received my order yesterday and just wanted to say how pleased I am with everything....the business card design was perfect and the 2X fat-loss stock is fantastic.....please feel free to use my logo in your ads, and should you have a potential client who is sitting on the fence, ask them to call me and I will tell them, from my standpoint, how you have helped grow my business. Have happy and safe holidays my friend!

You got me in trouble this weekend at a fitness marketing workshop I attended. I’m not mentioning any names here cuz I don’t want to get in any more trouble and I hope you post this on your blog for others to read. You can also use it as a testimonial or warning or whatever.
About midway through the day’s session during a Q&A session with the whole group (about 75 of us) I asked the host why he had not mentioned private label fitness as a resource for branded products. After all this was all about MARKETING!
He stated that while PLF is a good company with a good reputation he could not guarantee the quality of the products. And he went on to proclaim his “sponsors” made the best products and that he could stand behind them.
Right then a woman named Becky stood up and stated she’s done business with you for over 15 years and that PLF has some of highest quality products in the industry and that her products look awesome with her logo on them.
I vouched for you, too. Then a few other guys started saying they bought branded products from you! You’d think we worked for you with the endorsements of your products, the branding and how you personally answer your own phones and stuff.
One guy even even asked the host, “How can you call yourself a marketing expert and NOT recommend Private Label Fitness?”
It was pretty funny. You’ll be getting some calls from some of the attendees. You’ll probably also get a call from the host. He’ll probably want to work out some kind of deal with you.
So, here is my advice to anyone attending a fitness marketing seminar. If they don’t mention Private Label Fitness as a fantastic resource for branded, top quality products.. you should probably ask for your money back and run away!

"I was searching for a supplement line that I could label to add another profit center to the new sports training company I am starting. I came across your site and I must say: "WOW!" Not only do you offer supplements, you also offer SO MUCH MORE. This really is some amazing stuff, and it's all set up for me. This will allow me to focus on training while still having great content to help expand my business. I've thought about boot camps in the past but now I am sure to be adding that as well, which will lead to the member site with the MAP. I will definitely be using many of your products. THANK YOU for making the BUSINESS side of the Fitness Business so much easier."

We received one box from the first shipment (10 journals I think) regardless we will need the xtra 20 you sent......please call me next week to settle up.

"I am very excited about partnering with Private Label Fitness. I have placed my initial order for 25 workout logs (12 week version). I look forward to presenting the logs to my current & new clients. I have started my assessment of the Beta-Test MAP site. It is awesome...everything I wished for in an online system. I am attaching my logos, my "transformation" symbol (The Butterfly), and my brochure. I want to tie all of these materials together using the basic concepts of branding.

"Hello Art, I literally just hung up the phone with you 10 seconds ago. I am compelled to write to you and tell you how impressed I am with you taking the time to speak to me personally. When I called I had expected to speak with a person sitting in a room full of phones taking calls and giving sales pitches; only to finish the call frustrated, more confused, and put through the run around ringer. You answered all of my questions, and you took the time to educate me a bit beyond what I read on your website. I hung up even more excited about what you do for people like me than I was before the call.
Your website is easy to navigate. I require user friendly tools like that because of my time (or the lack of) and I am not computer friendly. LOL, I am not a guru by any means.
Your products are fantastic! I have tried a few other avenues and was not at all impressed. I paid my dues only to be pushed out of the nest to fly on my own. The others were not user friendly and did not allow me to create. I believe in creating customized plans for each of my clients. That was limited in the other things I have tried. I love that my logo is on everything, and I represent my business not someone else’s. After all that is where my clients put their trust. I also like that the products can be used to get started in a plan and continued to be used as my clients’ progress.
Because of you and your business; my business can grow professionally and run more smoothly. I will be able to devote more time to my clients, as well as offer them state of the art tools that I can be proud to put my name on, and that will enhance taking my clients to that next level of success time and time again. I can not thank you enough for today and I look forward to dealing with you and your company!
In good health,
"I love the journals. They look fantastic and so professional. I'm impressed at how fast you were able to get them to me. I was thinking of pricing them at $16.00 and $21.00. I was so worried that I would have a problem selling them, even at that low price. After speaking to you yesterday, I decided to listen to you and priced the 12 week journal at $25.00 and the 8 week at $20.00.
I have only had two customers in this morning and both purchased the 12 week journals. They were very excited at what they saw. One of the ladies is a life time member with Jenny Craig and she was very impressed. She told me this journal was much better than what she was getting from Jenny Craig. I'm sure I will need to order some more soon. I plan on adding the reference Manuel and some supplements real soon. I only wished I would have done this sooner.Thanks for being so patient with me and guiding me with all your knowledge. I really appreciate it.

"You don't know me since I'm not one of your customers, yet. But I thought you'd be interested in this since your name seems to be popping up everywhere.
While I run our two clubs, my wife is a CPA with a small financial planning and tax preparation business. I recently accompanied her to a marketing seminar geared for small accounting firms.
You can imagine my surprise when during a section called "Expertise From Different Boxes" up on the screen came a shot of your Private Label Fitness home page! The seminar leader, Albert Schwartz, told the audience that this was one of the best marketing sites he's found for helping "mom & pop" business owners.
Then he clicked on your blog and said, "If nothing else, you should read every single blog entry and see what applies to your own business. This is a gold mine of clever ideas, marketing positioning and sound business practices."
He also mentioned specific entries like Ford Vs. Ferrari, Change Agent and Your Position and others I can't remember. Well since then, I've spent the past two days on your site. He's right. It's awesome. Then, just yesterday, I received my e-newsletter from Fitness Management Magazine. And there you were again responding to a question regarding pro shops. And, again, you offered sound advice. Thanks for all you do."

Not only did they look great but the fact that you shipped them out within a day of my order is even more amazing. I had book marked your site a while ago but was hesitant, so debating back and forth I finally decided to place an order to check the journal out for myself and to my surprise I am totally 100% satisfied. Thank you so much"
"The shipment arrived today. The labels look great. I had a blind taste test with my friends today, and my mother who drinks 5 or more cups of tea a day. They all loved it.

"Ciao, Art! You are the best! At what? At everything, of course! In particular, I cannot stress how super your Journals are. I recently finished teaching a high school course for a homeschool co-op involving Anatomy and Nutrition entitled, “Fitness Warrior For God” aimed at 6th-12th graders. I used the daily journals, medicorp CD’s and the reference manuals as curriculum with my students. They loved all of the materials but, better yet, the parents of the students loved them even more! As a result, I obtained an entire family as training clients. Once again, you are such an amazing influence and have truly encapsulated everything that a training business should be about. Keep up the fantastic work, low prices and huge inventory. I will be YOUR client forever!"

"I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with “Restorative Marine Moisturizer”. My Aesthetician recommended I try a moisturizing cream as the skin on my face was becoming drier. The one she recommended smelled so strong of citrus I could not stand to have it on my face. I went to a local mall and bought an expensive hydrating moisturizer, but it had no effect, my skin was still dry. That’s when I tried your “Restorative Marine Moisturizer” this cream is wonderful, the skin on my face is no longer dry and there is no odor with this cream. I absolutely love it. I have noticed that many of the fine lines I was getting on my face have disappeared. Thank you for this wonderful moisturizing cream. It has made a huge difference to my skin!
"My Dermatologist recommends that I use a sun block everyday. This sun block provides an excellent level of coverage without the greasy feeling that most sun blocks have. I also like that it is almost odor free. I highly recommend it."
"The journal is an absolute hit with my clients. I will have to order more soon! Hands down the easiest and best business decision I've made. Its cost effective and a wonderful training tool. If you can e-mail me back asap, I'm looking forward to placing an order for cookbooks as well as more journals this month."
"The packaging (supplements) came out awesome!.... I will be placing another order tomorrow. Thanks AGAIN!"

"Hi Art... you were right! I gave all my Body FX Boot Camp "buddies" a complimentary tube of sunscreen (Advanced Protection SPF-30) for free at the beginning of the camp in March. It was a nice gesture and they all appreciated it. Well, now they want more and are willing to pay the $20 with no hesitation. You told me they would. Sorry to have been doubtful. Please send me 3 cases with my label."
"We sold the whole case of SPF-30 on the same day it arrived. I've received numerous compliments from some very picky ladies on my "brand" of sun screen. Are the rest of the products of equal quality? Please send me one of each for review."

GROVE PARK RESORT AND SPA
"Art, (should have done this long ago) I wanted to take a minute to thank you for all of your help. Where should I begin?
The first time I ever called your company I spoke with you directly, I thought that was amazing. What was more amazing is that you weren't in a hurry to get an order and get me off the phone. You spoke extensively about your products and your passion for the industry really showed. But that's not all! EVERY time I call I have spoken directly with you and you still take the time to understand my needs and my business, that is awesome! I can't think of any company (except my own!) that has such great customer service. I know that I can pick up the phone and talk to you any time I have a question or concern.
That aside, I can't begin to tell you how having your products at my studio has dramatically increased my revenues. Brand awareness is great, but you can brand anything. The product has to truly work, live up to its claims and provide a benefit to the user. That is exactly what your products do! Selling products such as the supplements really sets me aside from the typical personal trainer and places me as an expert in the field. It provides me with a continuous income as a front-end and back-end sales tactic.
On the front-end I may not be able to convert all potential clients into actual training clients (I'm good, but don't always get everyone!)...however, everyone can afford and needs a multivitamin! That one sale can potentially bring in an additional $264 per year, itself. That may not seem like a lot, but if I continually market my services and other products that number can (and almost always does) come back ten-fold. That IS a lot!
On the back-end, when I do convert someone to a client they see me as an expert and if I recommend a product to them they WILL purchase it. You can't lose! Any of the trainers or business owners reading this needs to know the lifetime value of a client or customer. That truly drives your business and if you don't know this number you really need to sit down and figure it out.
I highly recommend any trainer or business owner looking to include nutritional supplements or programs to use MediCorp for ALL their needs. You just can't get a better, more reliable product anywhere. Art, thank you for all your support and I look forward to continued success working with you.
If you need a specific reference, that anyone can call, feel free to include my number. 614-425-5016.

"Thank you for the presentation. Your company has been great with passing on great information and support materials in the area of fitness. I have enjoyed the materials I ordered in the past and plan to order more in the near future. Thank you again"

"Here's a rumor for you. As a certified nutritionist, I've tried them all. Apex, Diet Master, Nutri Genie and even the real "pro" packages like NutriBase, ESHA and Nutritionist Pro. They all have their strengths and weaknesses, but your MAP Package (Web-based Menu Planner plus printed support materials and supplements) is, by far, the best choice for fitness professionals. User-friendly, affordable, private-label, comprehensive and non-technical educational support are just a few of reasons why. Keep up the great work and I'll continue to spread "good" rumors about your company!"

"Thanks for a very interesting discussion. Your website is rich with fantastic information. Very impressive."

"I want to take the opportunity to say THANK YOU for the exceptional products you offer. We've been selling private-label supplements and nutrition counseling software CD's successfully for quite some time now, and the feedback from our members is always great.
What I most appreciate about you and your company is that you take the time to personally answer the phone and actually listen to my questions, concerns and suggestions. These days it's so common to get the 'voicemail run-around' that I am always pleasantly surprised to speak with you in person!
Just an FYI - one of the biggest advantages you have over your supplement-supplier competition is that you have a reasonable minimum order quantity. Many other companies require a minimum order of THOUSANDS of bottles, which is cost-prohibitive for most small businesses. Thanks for remembering that not everyone can order by the train-load!
"We spoke extensively about a year ago when I was getting my cookbook out. I wanted to thank you for everything you do. I appreciate the emails and I appreciate being affiliated with you. Your quote "We're a small company that likes to look big" inspired me. I have considered a lot of the things you have put out there and will be calling you for them in the near future. However for now I just wanted to say thanks for letting me involve my company with you. I appreciate it."

"I just got my Private Label Supplements. Everything looks amazing. You really provide a great value to people like me. Thanks for making things happen even when you are on vacation, “yer the man!”.
"Journals sold great! Clients love them (and our trainers love selling them!). I'll take 100 eight-week journals this time.

"I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the way the labeling looks on the products. Thanks so much for the great job and I will be ordering more soon."

"I'm leading a 14-week health and fitness class at a church I volunteer at. I'm so glad you offer this journal - there is NO WAY I could get one together cheaper, faster or any where near better! Thanks again!"

"I APPRECIATE YOUR GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP LAST WEEK, I WAS IN A REAL BIND, YET YOU SAVED THE DAY FOR MY CLIENT. I WILL CONTACT YOU BY NEXT WEEK TO UPDATE TO THE NEW NUTRITION PROGRAM. LOOKING FORWARD TO OFFERING IT TO MY CLIENTS."

"I am continually impressed with the high quality of your products and attention to detail. In June, I will be participating in a huge promotion with the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce and expecting to get a lot of new, very specific hits on my site. I am planning on using your products for all my existing clients and newly generated clients in the future. I will be buying your products and providing them to everyone and anyone in my business. Private labeling is ideal for me. Thanks again for everything, Art..
"Your products and info are the best I've come across. It's packaged the best, and is scientifically sound. I've been in the fitness business 25+ years and this helps package nutrition/education in the most user friendly way. I am opening a 20,000sq.ft. Wellness center in Dec. and am looking forward to starting all our members off on the right foot with Private Label Fitness."
"I think the MAP System is a great! I'm a nutritionist and personal trainer. I also participate in natural competitive bodybuilding. The MAP System is very consistent with nutritionalysis and biogenics. Actually I feel your program adds a professionalism that really exceeds other programs because of its simplicity and attention to insightful info for our clients. This is great because clients need to see measured results to see what is actually taking place with their bodies when on a nutrition and exercise program."

He's one of the few vendors I would feel comfortable with doing business on a handshake.” March 21, 2009

“I have worked with Art for well over a decade. His knowledge of the fitness industry combined with his marketing background makes him the go to person for any fitness club or personal trainer looking to create a niche, brand themselves and increase their bottom line. His website, his creativity in packaging, the resources he provides and his adaption to the changing marketplace allows fitness professionals to brand themselves in ways that only companies with million dollar budgets can do.

He is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to.” October 30, 2008
“I've used Art's products and services on more than one occasion and found everything he does of very consistent quality....high level. He is a true example of "under promise/over deliver." While he's not afraid to toot the horn of his products, what he delivers has never been less than exceptional and very reasonably priced. Anytime I have a question, I email him and he answers personally. When I've requested a phone conversation....no problem. Both myself and my clients have benefited from Art's products, and the best thing is, he listens to your feedback. If he has a product I'm even considering using, I know I can email him with my concerns and get answers. I highly recommend Art Rothafel and Private Label Fitness!

“Briefly: Art is great and Private Label Fitness products are great! I was thrilled when Art asked me for a recommendation because I have been purchasing Private Label Fitness Products for years for my clients who own / operate fitness centers. However, I have never had the opportunity to tell potential buyers what great products Art's company offers--not to mention the prompt, reliable service. I started using Art's products almost ten years ago now. I have never had an order take longer than promised. I have never had an incorrect order. The products are the best in the industry and a great value. And. although I have never met Art in person, we have had extensive conversations over the years, and he is personable and a great business resource for perspective and advice. You are welcome to contact me personally if you'd like to ask additional questions regarding Art or his products.

I know that everything that I purchase from Art will be the highest quality and delivered in a record time. Art is dedicated to only providing the highest quality product to fitness professionals. It is refreshing knowing that I can go to Art's website for information and resources to help increase revenue using his products. I highly recommend Art Rothafel, his compnay and the products they provide.” October 26, 2008

“I have used Art's products to help grow my fitness business. The products he produces are put together well and very professional. I would recommend his products to any fitness professional looking for extra tools for their clients.” October 26, 2008
“Working with Art and his company Private Label Fitness has been wonderful to me and my company. I can honestly say that Art has made me look more professional than I could have on my own and his company has provided me with services that have put me over the top with my clients. Art doesn't just provide a great product though, he provides a great attitude, personality and friendship. I know that I can call on Art and he will be there to answer my questions personally and I can always hear him smiling on the other end of the phone. That goes a long way with me in a day and time such as what we are living in now when customer service is not even a second thought. Art has taken customer service to a level few people will ever be able to compete with. And that is why I will always use Art's company and trust him as a businessman and friend.” October 26, 2008

“The protein I just received sold out the first day! I always buy 12-15 jugs knowing 8 are already spoken for. I’ve been talking up this protein for years but many of my clients still choose other inferior, and most times, more costly brands.
This time it was different. They saw the killer private branded jugs with my company name and logo BUT the first thing they all remarked about was the red stevia badge.”
