Life Fitness has made the decision to withdraw from attending and exhibiting at FIBO, the fitness trade show being held in Cologne, Germany in early April, due to the global concern regarding coronavirus.

Chris Clawson, CEO of Life Fitness, said in a statement, “After closely assessing global concerns regarding the coronavirus outbreak, Life Fitness has made the difficult decision to withdraw attendance to FIBO in Cologne, Germany on April 2-5. We take the current situation very seriously, and the health and safety of our employees, customers and partners are always our top priority. While the risk remains uncertain, as the global leader in commercial fitness equipment, we feel this is the responsible decision to make at this time. We appreciate the additional precautions FIBO is taking to protect attendees and we look forward to continuing to support future FIBO events.”

He added, “At this time, we still plan to exhibit and attend IHRSA in San Diego, California on March 18-21 and our team is taking additional precautions to ensure the health and safety of our people.”
