You may have noticed that the display console of your favorite exercise machine has some curious cords or ports that you have no idea what to do with – until now.
Many machines offer options for you to sync your mobile device with the machine while you’re exercising, which can take your phone beyond its typical duties of simply playing music.

Congratulations to Life Fitness President Chris Clawson for winning the 2013 Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in the Midwest Region. Chris shares this honor with his predecessor, Life Fitness co-founder Augie Nieto, and former Ernst and Young Entrepreneur Award recipient. The awards are the culminating event of the Ernst & Young Strategic Growth Forum, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
When Chris Clawson took on the role of Life Fitness President in 2010, he wanted to return the company to its roots as innovators and industry leaders. His first move was to position Life Fitness as tech leaders in the fitness industry, while also creating products that would dictate the market, as opposed to react to it. Under his leadership, Life Fitness introduced a wave of ground-breaking tech advancements in the fitness industry, including the Discover Tablet Consoles and LFopen, the industry’s first and only truly open product platform.

Now that we've had a week to recover from the craziness of FIBO, an international fitness industry tradeshow held in Germany, I can firmly say it's been the best yet.
This year FIBO went back to Cologne after 22 years and what a great place to be! It has international appeal, it's easy to reach, and offers a great selection of hotels and restaurants, which I'm sure all attendees appreciated. In fact, FIBO hit a record number of visitors this year in it's 28-year history - 96,700 attendees. More than 30% of trade visitors came from outside of Germany.
