SCHILLER PARK, Ill. – Sept. 5, 2007 – Life Fitness, the global leader in fitness equipment, received top honors from Anytime Fitness as Vendor of the Year for overall product quality and services at the recent Anytime Fitness conference in Utah.

“Anytime Fitness has a large family of preferred vendors, which we value greatly,” said Anytime Fitness National Media Director Mark Daly. “But this year Life Fitness rose to the cream of the crop. It's a true testimony to the quality equipment and top-notch service at Life Fitness.”

To ensure that preferred vendors meet corporate expectations, Anytime Fitness conducts an annual survey of its franchisees to assess vendors on products, customer service, maintenance and repairs, value and follow up.

“Life Fitness didn't merely fare well on the surveys; our franchisees went out of their way to let us know how genuinely pleased they are with Life Fitness,” Daly said. “Franchisees also told us that their members remain impressed with the quality, variety and durability of Life Fitness equipment.”

The third annual Anytime Fitness conference drew more than 300 franchisees and vendors, doubling its 2006 attendance.

“Life Fitness has done an incredible job of providing a great product with superior customer service during a year of fast-paced growth,” said Libby Crooker, Anytime Fitness franchise consultant. “Our gratitude goes out to Life Fitness for their wonderful contribution to an incredibly successful year.”
