According to Wikipedia, "In 1992, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Bahram Akradi, founded Lifetime Fitness and has been a director since its origin. The Company was incorporated in 1990 as a Minnesota corporation under the name FCA, Ltd., and subsequently registered to use the name of Life Time Fitness in 1992. The first club opened in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. Several locations were added to the Minneapolis–St. Paul area before the chain expanded to suburban and exurban communities in other metropolitan areas across several states. Most Lifetime Fitness centers are located in exurban or fringe suburban areas in medium to large-sized metropolitan areas, with a handful of locations in central city or inner suburban areas. The oldest Lifetime facility is in Eagan, Minnesota."
