Life Fitness Sales Down in Third Quarter

LAKE FOREST, IL — The fitness segment of Brunswick Corp., which consists of the Life Fitness Division, had a decline in sales but an increase in earnings in third quarter 2009. According to financial results released last month, the Life Fitness Division, which manufactures and sells Life Fitness and Hammer Strength fitness equipment, had sales that totaled $126.8 million in the third quarter, down 22 percent from $161.6 million during third quarter 2008. International sales, which represented 55 percent of total segment sales in the quarter, declined by 15 percent. Commercial equipment sales, which account for the largest percentage of the fitness segment sales, declined as club operators remained cautious about ordering equipment, the company said. Sales of consumer exercise equipment also were down, though at lower rates than sales of commercial equipment, the company added.
