Bodybuilding.com Announces Official 2011 Supplement Awards Winners

Bodybuilding.com, the Internet’s most-visited bodybuilding and fitness site and largest online retailer of nutritional supplements, just announced the 7th annual 2011 Bodybuilding.com Supplement Awards winners live at Joe Weider’s Olympia in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Bodybuilding.com Supplement Awards have set the standard for recognition of the best products and brands in the fitness and supplement industry.

The original 70 nominations were based on sales, and since customers’ opinions are what truly count, Bodybuilding.com let the general public vote from July 15 – August 15, 2011 to pick the final winners. There was a tie for the first time in history with the Breakout Brand of the Year (given to the most improved company) votes split down the middle between two top contenders. Another history maker – the number of votes went from 350,000 in 2010 to over one million votes this year.
