Our company President Chris Clawson is on Capitol Hill today, urging congress men and women to support PEP grants, awarded to schools and community-based organizations that provide physical education programs for youth. We're also urging leaders to pass the Personal Health Investment Today (PHIT) Act which allows individuals to pay for various physical activities, such as health club memberships, fitness programs and exercise equipment with pre-tax dollars from a tax-favored account.  

Chris is meeting with the following representatives today; we ask Life Fitness friends to contact their representatives and ask for their support on these two very important programs:  

Cong. Dave Loebsack (D-IA)
Cong. Jean Schmidt (R-OH)
Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS)
Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME)
Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA)
Cong. Jo Ann Emerson (R-MO)
