For the past seven years, we've presented the Lifetime Achievement Award at each Club Industry show in Chicago to someone who has made a difference in the industry, either directly through work at a fitness facility, or by promoting the importance of exercise to the public.

We've honored Joe Weider, Joe Gold, Judi Sheppard-Missett, Rick Caro, Alan Schwartz, Dr. Kenneth Cooper and Jack LaLanne.
