Life Fitness' Clawson tabbed as MDA vice president

Life Fitness President Chris Clawson has been elected as the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) National Vice President.

Clawson has been involved in the MDA for seven years, around the time Life Fitness co-founder Augie Nieto was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease). Nieto has been a tireless representative for the MDA with numerous fundraising campaigns and events, including Augie's Quest dinner during IHRSA's annual Convention & Trade Show.

In 2011, Chris inspired Life Fitness to introduce a special edition Augie’s Quest Lifecycle exercise bike, paying homage to the man who introduced the Lifecycle name to the world. A $500 donation to the MDA is made on the sale of every Augie’s Quest Lifecycle sold.
