Augie Nieto is a Life Fitness and industry celebrity, and a personality I’ve come to admire for his passion, drive and wit. Having given life to our company, and cementing a commitment to finding a cure for ALS, his appearance with our team at IHRSA, the world’s largest fitness trade show, energizes everyone with a spirit unmatched by traditional pre-show pep talks.
