Fitness Caddy® & the Cruising Caddy®
Vicki Forster, Inventor
“Starting my own business gave me the freedom to be home and spend time with my family. I’ve met a lot of people I would have never met.”
Sometimes in the daily routine of life, a perfect idea presents itself and a new business is created. That’s the story of BVT Products. The company founder, Vicki Forster enjoyed stopping by her local YMCA, for a quick workout. With the gym being close to home and no need to bring a change of clothes or a large bag, she would just grab her towel and water bottle and set off for her workout. Like many of us, in addition to the water bottle, she had the car keys, the cell phone and ID needed for entrance. There were a lot of things to carry and a lot of things to drop on the gym floor. She noticed that she was not the only one dropping things on the floor while making her way around the workout circuit. She wanted something to keep her things organized.
Vicki went on a search to find a holder that was not big or bulky to take on those quick trips to the gym. However, she could not find what she was looking for, so she decided to make a water bottle holder that would also hold her keys and a few other things. After she finished making it, her husband took one look at it and called it the Fitness Caddy®, in that moment, the solution she and many other fitness enthusiasts have been waiting for was born. She took the Fitness Caddy® to her next aerobics class and everyone wanted one, that’s when she knew she was onto something very big.
The Fitness Caddy® is a brilliant invention that provides a way for those seeking a quick workout without bringing bulky baggage to carry their small but necessary items. The Fitness Caddy® is not the only water bottle carrier offered by BVT Products. While on cruise, Vicki noticed the tourist struggling to carry their water bottles, travel information and more as they stopped in various ports. Her quick thinking and visionary insight went into action again and created the Cruising Caddy®. Now, cruisers can be comfortable carrying their travel items and their water bottles while sightseeing.
BVT Products, have wide appeal; not only do the products help us keep our water bottles and other items organized while exercising, playing and traveling; they also help us continue to hydrate throughout the day, no matter what activity we are doing. Water is a necessary part of a healthy lifestyle and when it’s easy to keep a water bottle close by, it’s easy to keep hydrated and physically operating at your optimal best. Thanks to inventor Vicki Forster and BVT Products we can all get a little healthier inside and out by having easy access to our water bottles while exercising and traveling and playing!
