fitlosophy inc., the creator of fitbook™, fitness + nutrition journals, received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council - West, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
fitlosophy inc., started in 2008, was recognized with this certification due to the leadership of founder and chief fitlosopher Angela Manzanares, who embraces a fit life and has a passion for positively influencing the lives of others. Within 3 short years, the company has grown to nationwide distribution both online and in stores across the United States and Canada including Target, Sports Chalet, 24 Hour Fitness, Fitness Town and Amazon.com.
“As a third-generation entrepreneur, being a business owner is at the heart of who I am, so I’m honored to receive this prestigious recognition for our fitlosophy team. Being involved in an initiative to promote and further women in business has always been a passion of mine. I’ve never seen myself as a woman business owner perhaps because it doesn’t define how I do business; however, I appreciate the opportunity we have to encourage young women to take on business and see that it’s no longer just a man’s world,” said Angela Manzanares, founder of fitlosophy inc.. Manzanares is also active in SMARTY, a community for like-minded entrepreneurial women to connect, share resources, and support each other in their business endeavors.

The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. By including women-owned businesses like fitlosophy among their vendors, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity.
