On behalf of the Life Fitness family and friends, we’d like to congratulate Life Fitness President Chris Clawson on his unanimous election as the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA)  National Vice President, part of the organization’s volunteer leadership.

Chris has worked with the MDA for 7 years, extending the bridge between the fitness industry and the MDA that Life Fitness co-founder Augie Nieto established in 2005, when he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease).

Our Augie’s Quest staff has planned numerous fundraisers together over the past 7 years; however none are ever quite like THE BASH for Augie’s Quest – held annually at IHRSA. I woke up Friday morning to a full inbox.  Most of the emails were from Augie— being the driven and motivated man that he is, he was asking for numbers.

How much did the Zumbathon raise? $500,000

How many guests are confirmed for tonight? 795

How much money have we raised going into the evening? $1,052,000

How much more do you think we can raise tonight?

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.
