Twice a week, a group of dedicated Life Fitness employees meet at the break of dawn to go toe to toe with the Synrgy360x.
Blood, sweat and tears are shed during a 40 minute workout with battle ropes, burpees, TRX suspension straps and more. Employees from across the company – engineering to marketing – ban together over a shared love of fitness (and self-inflicted pain).
Who are we kidding? Life Fitness employees consider atomic pushup challenges fun!

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).

I just finished the 5K Race to Wrigley Field in Chicago. Who did I high-five at the finish? Not my best friend or little brother, but Jake, the IT analyst who sits two cubes away from mine. We’re part of the Life Fitness Running Club, which includes 70 other members out of our Chicago area offices.
The club meets on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays at noon for runs around the Schiller Park/Franklin Park, Ill. neighborhood as well as Wednesday evenings, and Thursday mornings. To maintain membership we must meet with the club at least 3 times a month, but many of our members meet more frequently and our grove runs range anywhere from 2 to 6 miles long as a group.
