Case Study

...

Life Fitness an $860 million company, began over 40 years ago with an idea, and a vision - Create a different kind of fitness equipment. Something that will engage and inspire exercisers to do more, to push themselves further. Out of this vision was born the world’s first electronic piece of fitness equipment, the LifeCycle Exercise Bike.

Our long-standing commitment to thoughtful product development and partnership has resulted in the global leader in the commercial fitness industry with over 400 different products delivered to thousands of commercial and home fitness customers worldwide.

Life Fitness’ dedication to constantly develop better, more effective fitness equipment is rivaled only by our desire to be a partner to help our customers who choose to become fit, or to provide a healthy lifestyle to others. Life Fitness subcontracted Lexicon to integrate Salesforce with Oracle ERP endpoints.
