Bodybuilding.com features a massive selection of health and workout supplements.

The company encourages customers to join the community to receive customized content, set goals, make plans, track progress and stay motivated.

Unlike the other online vitamin stores we reviewed, Bodybuilding.com does not include its product categories in the top navigation. In order to start a search for products, you'll have to click "Store" in the top navigation, then be taken to the portion of the site with product categories and subcategories. This may leave you a bit confused when you first visit the site but it just takes an extra click to get there.
Each of the product pages in Bodybuilding.com's online store is consistent with the individual product's branding, creating a brand experience for each product. While this lends a unique feel to each product page, you won't get consistent information for all the products. This makes it difficult to compare products in the same category and costs you extra time on each product page, as the details you're looking for may be in a different location for each product.
