Congratulations to Erin M. of Mazomanie, WI. She will be relaxing this Fall on her brand new Lifetime Wood Alternative Glider Bench. That's right, Erin was this month's lucky random winner in our monthly giveaway! If you weren't the lucky winner but would still love to have one of these benches, you can find them in the Lifetime Store online. And, if the Lifetime Wood Alternative Glider Bench isn't quite the style that matches your decor, you might also want to check out the original Lifetime Glider Bench made of high-density polyethylene with a solid seat and back in a putty color. (Which, I might add, matches perfectly next to a Lifetime Picnic Table!) Same size, same great quality, just a different look. The holidays are right around the corner, and Lifetim... More
What another great service experience last weekend! On Saturday, September 17, the remaining 500 Lifetime employees (who did not attend Ogden’s Service Project on September 10) helped clean up Loy Blake Park, East Park and West Point City cemetery in West Point, Utah to participate in Lifetime’s 6th Annual Employee Community Service Project. Between both projects, we dedicated approximately 2,700 man-hours, saving both cities thousands of dollars in labor to accomplish complete park makeovers. These projects included everything from installing a drainage system in the playground area that was collecting water, cutting tree rings, leveling headstones, replenishing bark, rebuilding a fire pit to painting playground equipment and picnic tables. It was quite a site to see so many people working together to make the p... More
This giveaway has ended. Aahhhh. Deep breath of fresh, crisp, autumn air. With the cooler temperatures and beautiful Fall colors arriving, it's as if nature is tugging at your coat sleeves to get you outside to enjoy the scenery. Sometimes it's nice - and necessary - to take a break from our daily chaotic schedules to simply relax and admire all of nature's wonders. With that in mind, this month, we are going to give one lucky person an ideal excuse to cut loose from routine and simply sit outside and unwind. After all, if you win a brand new Lifetime Glider Bench, it's pretty much a requirement you take time each day to actually use it, right? We think so. So, this month we're giving away a Lifetime Wood Alternative Glider Bench. It's the perfect size to easily fit on a porch... More
In my last blog post, I showed you how a tandem Lifetime Manta Kayak compares in size to other kayaks. Today, I want to show you a little about the stability of this kayak. Last month my family tested the Manta Kayak for several days on Lake Erie. When I say family, I mean everyone…me, my husband, my kids, my nieces, my brother, my uncles, and my mom and dad. As you can see in the photos, we paddled the Manta in pretty much every weight combination and seating combination possible. The Lifetime Manta Kayak has a 500lb weight capacity and we tested it to its limits. We paddled it with one person, two people, three people… and even four people! And, guess what? It didn't tip! The Lifetime Manta Kayak, or Yellow Banana as we now call it... More
Last Saturday, September 10, 430 of my fellow co-workers and I spent three hours constructing a brand new walking and biking trail in Ogden City, Utah for Lifetime’s 6th Annual Local Community Service Project. Each year, Lifetime employees work off the clock and donate their time with our group community service project, earning credit toward Lifetime’s bi-annual employee benefit program that gives a percentage of the company’s profits to each employee. Since Lifetime is celebrating its 25th corporate anniversary, this year we are increasing our efforts and actually undertaking four separate beautification projects on two separate days. This past Saturday’s trail building was our first project and the second project will be held this Saturday, September 17, and will include clean-up of two parks and ... More
A few weeks ago, I shared with you some things I learned when registering my new Lifetime Manta Kayak, and promised I would share a review with you soon of my experience using the tandem kayak. So, today is the day. First, a little info about my kayaking background. Not much to tell really. I'll be honest; I've only done it a few times. I've paddled around a lake and played kayak football on the sit-on-top Lifetime Daylite and Calypso kayaks, and I have paddled on a lake and several miles on a river in a Swifty Islander sit-inside kayak. So, in my mind, I was expecting the tandem Lifetime Manta Kayak to be similar in size to some of the previous individual kayaks I have paddled. But, my first impression of the Lifetime Manta Kayak? "Whoa, this thing is big." Even th... More
Over the past year, we've shared with you information and videos about our new Lifetime Tru-Motion™ Walking Cane - and even about awards the cane has won.

Right now on our website, you'll find the Tru-Motion™ Walking Cane in our "Other Innovations" category.

I spy with my little eye… a Lifetime Outdoor Storage Box! Yep, while I was in Ohio visiting my parents a few weeks ago, I was happy to spot a Lifetime Storage Box being used as a boat dock locker at the local marina where my parents keep their boat. Although they aren't actually sold through marine supply stores (yet), Lifetime Outdoor Storage Boxes are certainly built to be ideal for a boat dock locker. Like all Lifetime products, the Lifetime Outdoor Storage Box is made of double-wall, high-density polyethylene that is UV-protected so it won't fade, crack, or peel. The Lifetime Storage Box also has a weather- and water-resistant seal that keeps the interior dry. Boaters will love the fact that the controlled spring-hinge lid opens to greater than 90° which means you can ea... More
What is better than a trip to the neighborhood park, where you listen to the children shrill with delight while they swing, hang from monkey bars, and slide down the slides? Having your very own outdoor play system with all this and more in your own backyard.Last fall, we invested in a BigStuff Adventure Hard Roof Play System, made by Lifetime, for my in-laws backyard. Our children get to spend a few afternoons each week at their grandmas house, fortunately for them, their grandma and grandpa have a large yard and there was a perfect spot in one corner of the property for a play set. The system is free standing so I didnt have to worry about anchoring the system to the ground. However, for safety reasons, I did excavate out about 6 inches of topsoil out of the play area and filled it in with bark so the children would have a ...

What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving? My wife’s favorite part is going shopping! I find more satisfaction in staying home, eating too much, and watching football, but, to each their own. I went one year with my wife and after I got beat by a bunch of spry and motivated ladies while trying to get some sheets, I decided to retire from Black Fridaying (is that even a word?). My goal is to help you know where you can find our products. With so many different retailers carrying our products, I wanted to help you wade through the mess.

Halloween is such a fun time of year! Who doesn’t love costumes, face paint, spooky decorations – and my personal favorite – pumpkin carving?! So last night, my husband and I set out on our pumpkin carving adventure. My husband not only carves pumpkins, but he is amazing at shaving in faces, and doing all sorts of cool stuff. Over the years, he has helped me get more and more into it as well. Since I knew this was going to get pretty messy, I didn’t really want to use my wooden kitchen table, so I decided to pull out my trusty 4-Foot Fold-In-Half Lifetime Table. We live in a smaller apartment, so this is the perfect table for us. It is super easy to store and ...
