They have twelve different manufacturing facilities. Peter Hamilton is the current company president.

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.
