500,000 Life Fitness Treadmills and Counting

On February 29th, 2012, Life Fitness produced the 500,000th treadmill at our Franklin Park, Ill. factory. The first Life Fitness treadmill ever produced was the TR9500 (also known as “The Tank”) in August of 1991. During that first year we averaged ten treadmilles per day. Needless to say we’ve perfected the art since then and today our team averages 177 treadmills per day!

The entire Life Fitness team wants to thank you – our customers, partners and fans – for  your loyalty, without which we never could have passed that half-million mark.

Check out the video to watch the treadmill in production and even see Life Fitness President Chris Clawson hop on the line as the official tester! 

P.S. – If you’ve ordered a treadmill recently, make sure to be on the lookout for the 500,000th certificate.
