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...

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

I am thrilled to tell you that because of the success with our cane, Lifetime has decided to launch an entire line of home safety accessories!  Right now on our website, you'll find the Tru-Motion™ Walking Cane in our "Other Innovations" category. But, very soon, you'll see another new product category added on our website called "Health and Wellness" which will be the new home for the cane and our upcoming new home safety accessories like bath and towel safety grab bars.

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...

The Great Wheelbarrow Showdown
The TaskSpread six yards of compost on our lawn. Since this was going to be some serious yard work, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to test the new Lifetime Wheelbarrow and Lifetime Yard Cart to see how they stack up against a traditional wheelbarrow. The Traditional WheelbarrowI started off by hauling one load of dirt with a traditional wheelbarrow with one wheel. I filled it full with 35 shovels of dirt. Right away, when I went to pick it up, it started to tip sideways on me and I really had to work to keep it from falling completely over. Once I got it balanced, I could push it pretty easily, but it was a constant struggle to maintain stability. Then came the tipping test. I pushed the wheelbarrow over, but had no control how far over it tipped. So, needless to say, I ended up with a large pile of dirt when ...

Paddling Vacations
These days, taking a family on a vacation is no easy feat. Not financially and not logistically. It requires money, planning, and time! But it is totally worth it! Times are changing and so are vacation options. You dont need to go to Disney Land to have a great family experience. Why not plan a vacation around kayaking? Almost anywhere there is water, there is someone who rents kayaks. But, if you have your own, that is great! There are so many great paddling destinations in the United States it would take forever to list them all. The best part about a kayaking vacation is that you often get to experience a new place or situation that so many others dont get to! Kayaking out to a secret cove, or down a calm moving river in a desolate canyon are all great ways to bond with your friends and family, get exercise and have a fa...
