Over the years, I've been slowly losing some of my best health and fitness suppliers and as of 2 months ago, my very best and last one, YCY Health Centre in Canada closed shop.  In all, I sold well over a million dollars in their products in our 5 year relationship.  I've been saying for the past few years now that indy ecommerce shops selling health and fitness products are going the way of the dinosaur.  In addition, I also had to remove all nutritional supplements off of my websites due to the high cost of advertising as Google Merchants does not allow hardcore supplements but most credit card processors do not wish to fool with it so the ones that will have high rates.  

So after looking at all the numbers, I am picking the right time to get out of this wacky industry as well as getting away from the FDA bulleye as the government will soon start indicting and having people arrested after the election.  I've decided to switch over to selling custom home furnishings instead and work with a supplier locally in North Carolina as well as getting back into selling computer equipment and electronics.  With that, it would be odd for people to see the name Caliber Fitness Solutions on their bill statements so I'm closing the book on the company and reorganize under a new name.  


15 years in business....not too shabby. ;D

Adonis has nothing to do with it.  Its an outlet that uses reclaimed and recycled materials.  Really classy stuff.

Not built yet because it can't look like my other websites.  It has to look sharp and classy and not cheap looking.  My boy in India will take care of it

Vince - selling computer equipment these days as an independent is a hard gig, the profit margins are thin and the competition is fierce. You sound like a tech guy, I would suggest you sell Computer "services" instead, almost no overheard and zero inventory to hold.

Did you actually make good money doing this? I'm surprised people make purchases from sites like that at all, tbh

Wow Vince this guy was an asshole. Then you called him out for damaging it himself and he stopped complaining, what a surprise!

Vince already addressed this on here. Vince did everything he could to satisfy the customer.

I still have orders coming in but the items left have a very low profit margin so its not worth spending the time and money.  It has nothing to do with the design of the website but with the customer database...that's the life blood of any company.

So, Caliber Technology Solutions will focus on super-computers and novelty USB disks shaped like cocks, while the Caliber Home Furnishings Division focuses on fine urniture constructed from second hand plywood and polished with bee pollen. Got it.

I am curious. You sounds like a big security expert, what with all the talk about brute force redirects and the GUCCIFER references. Why not apply your considerable skill to help secure the Interwebs with Caliber Security Solutions?

Perhaps you can be the one to invent that golden key encryption our politicians want, and allow robust privacy and pervasive monitoring! Having setup shopping carts and customized HTML templates, you sound like the kind of expert that could get this done.

With that done, you can be simultaneously awarded the Turing Award, the John von Neumann Medal and the Nobel Peace Prize.

Then, having helped the world, you can retire in your trailer and your 13" Walmart TV and focus on your hobby of washing scrotums.
