The History of Life Fitness
The company began in 1968 when Ray Wilson and Augie Nieto bought the
rights to market Dr. Keene P. Dimick's stationary bike. They believed
stationary bikes could change the way people lived. As the company
continued to grow, it helped to start the fitness craze of the late
seventies and early nineteen eighties.
During that fitness craze, Life Fitness introduced both their rowing
machine and their stair climber to the exercise equipment product market.
As the nation's concern with health and weight loss continued to grow into
the nineteen nineties, they introduced treadmills and Life Fitness
elliptical machines to the market. The elliptical became the number one
selling item in commercial facilities. It was during this decade that the
Brunswick corporation purchased Life Fitness.
There are a number of brand names offered by Life Fitness besides the Life
Fitness name. The Life Fitness commercial brand offers treadmills, stair
climbers, stationary bikes, and elliptical cross training machines. They
also make a number of different strength training machines. Hammer
Strength makes durable strength training exercise equipment lines
including plate loaded, motion technology selectorized, heavy duty racks,
and benches and racks. Parabody makes home gym equipment, free weight
stations, and specialized workout stations.
No matter which Life Fitness brand you choose, their machines are built to
last. Review indicate a high customer satisfaction rating with their
ellipticals both on the average consumer market and on the market for
cross training athletes like tri-athletes.
