So, a few weeks ago, I wrote about our decision to buy a Lifetime Portable Basketball Hoop - Model 90228.  Well, it's assembled, up, and the kids are loving it.  When the box arrived, the kids couldn't wait for us to put it together.  The cool thing about Lifetime basketball hoops is even though it's a pretty large product, it's actually packaged all in one box.  Granted, it's a big box (size varies slightly depending on the size of backboard you buy).  But, it easily fits in an SUV and probably in the trunk of most mid-sized cars.  By the way, did you know Lifetime actually invented packaging basketball hoops in one box?  Really, they did! Back in 1992. It may seem like a novel idea now, but that invention made it so basketball hoops could be sold in mass retail markets like Walm... More

Stand-Up-Paddleboarding (SUP) is one of the hottest new trends in the water sports world. Over the past few years, it’s gone from a small time activity to a huge, world-wide phenomenon. Last season we unveiled our adult paddleboard, the Lifetime Freestyle XL SUP. This season, we wanted to make sure the whole family could enjoy this new and rapidly growing sport. We scaled down our adult paddleboard, added some new features, and made the Lifetime Hooligan SUP  - a fantastic youth paddleboard that fits a wide range of younger paddlers. The Lifetime Hooligan was designed to be extremely stable and easy to use. We wanted to be sure those first-time jitters could melt away once the paddler realized how stable and safe this board really is! This board also incorporates a cutting-e...

Once a year, Lifetime employees volunteer time to serve our communities around us. With the work we did at the Utah State University Botanical Center this year, it got some of our employees thinking. And not just thinking….oh no!  It was a surge of excitement! The excitement became contagious and a small group of employees pooled their teamwork to start their own vegetable garden in a small concrete garden box in front of their building. After buying the necessary plants and soil, everything was planted. And as of today, the tomatoes vines are climbing high, and even the crisp jalapeño peppers are already on the stems! I'm pretty sure my mouth was actually watering when I saw it. But even that’s not the end of it. Because of their group work to grow fresh vegetables right at work, that passion for... More

We all know that smoking is not good for our health. But, sometimes we pick up habits that aren’t good for us. Well, I’d like to tell you about a few Lifetime employees who have taken a huge step to improve their lives by quitting tobacco... and something big that came from it. At Lifetime, we care about our employees' health.  As part of our preventive health care programs for employees, a few months ago, we held an internal “quit tobacco” campaign so Lifetime employees who wanted to quit tobacco could attend Lunch ‘N Learns with the Davis County Health Department. Each week, they would meet to discuss their struggles and ways to help quit tobacco. From this, three of our employees were able to kick their habit and quit smoking! What an accomplishment! Because of their ... More

Our water sports team is constantly trying to improve our current lineup, as well as design new innovative and stylish kayaks.  We looked at our popular Daylite and Lotus models carefully, put our heads together, and out popped the Lifetime Monterey!  The Lifetime Monterey Kayak is the newest addition to our kayak family, but it still has many of the great qualities of its cousins, the Daylite and the Lotus. The new Monterey is 8’ in length and 29.5” wide.   We have added enhanced tracking channels to the bottom of the kayak which will help keep the kayak from turning side-to-side with each paddle stroke.  It will also allow the paddler to go a greater distance with less effort - who doesn’t want that?!  As with all Lifetime kayaks, the Monterey is extremely stable an...

Just when you think things couldn’t possibly get better…they do!  Lifetime is now one of seven businesses actively participating in the Utah Industrial Energy Efficiency Program (UIEEP). The program, which was initiated to help industrial customers increase their efforts in energy efficiency, has already seen massive energy savings.  And that’s not only great news for Lifetime, but for the members of our community. UIEEP is already taking leaps and bounds to encourage businesses to reduce their energy intensity and emissions, provide training and technical assistance as companies like Lifetime apply energy-saving efforts, and give credit for energy efficiency successes that maximize performance. As those who know us well can testify, Lifetime has been dedicated to the environment and our ab... More

We love getting feedback from our customers. We have had all kinds of interesting topics sent in to us. This one was no exception. Although we can’t officially promote use of our products for anything other than their intended use, I thought this one was pretty clever. Stan wrote in telling us how much he loves his Lifetime Outdoor Storage Box. Stan likes to cook meat using a smoker and needed a place to store his smoker on his deck and protect it from the elements. He devised a cleaver way to do this with his Lifetime Storage Box. First, he secured the box standing on one end. Then, he built a sliding shelf in it. Now, whenever he wants to smoke his meat he opens the “door” of the box and slides out the shelf. Voila, the smoker is ready to go. When he is done with it, and the smoker has cooled, he sli... More

Earth Day is one of those things Ilearned about in elementary school. I remember running home to tell my mom that each drop of water we waste actually becomes a gallon of wasted water for the earth!Like my mom reacted at the time, I now don't think that's true. Myfirst grade brainmust have exaggerated the concept.For this year'sEarth Day, I decided to volunteer at the local nature center's event, helping with a craft table for children making magazinebead necklaces. Lots of fun!Volunteers before me had made thousands of beads and even sorted them by color. Looking around, I spotted a couple Lifetime tables. I asked one of the vendors a little about her booth then let her know I work for the company who made her table. She immediatley beamed "I love this table!"and went on to say that she bought it for acertain purpouse but us...
