Joe Marguccio, Sales Manager for Life Fitness and Hammer Strength Australia, announces retirement after 30 years of loyal service
After over 30 years working at Universal Gym Equipment and then Life Fitness Australia, Joe Marguccio has announced his retirement. Joe is one of the most recognised faces in the industry in Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania and has consulted on equipment purchases for 1000’s of customers.
Joe began his fitness journey working as an instructor at the Golden Bowl and was soon presenting a fitness segment on Hey Hey It’s Saturday for three years.
After working in Fitness Clubs Joe made the switch to fitness equipment sales in the early 80’s, representing Universal Gym Equipment. In 1997 he started work as a sales consultant for Life Fitness Australia and has been a highly respected industry expert both with his customers and at Life Fitness.
Joe Marguccio states, “I have enjoyed working within the fitness industry over the past forty years, and have seen many changes, and met many great people. I would like to thank everyone for your support over the years. It’s been a heck of a ride. I would like to take this opportunity to thank ALL the staff at Life Fitness, without whose support, my job would have been all the more difficult. Everyone in the organisation has always looked at the best way to assist me in getting the best outcome for my clients. Particular thanks to the McClure family, who have showed confidence in me and supported me over the past thirty years. When I first started at Universal Gym Equipment, Robert’s mantra was that we worked hard for our customers, but it was always important that we enjoy the job. I must say that outlook on life has ensured that I have had fun doing the job over the time, and because I enjoyed the job, the time has literally flown! Now it’s time to put the dumbbells back in the rack.”
Joe will always be known for his integrity and his commitment to ensure his clients came first. I am sure his sense of humour and straight-forward approach will be missed by his customers and all the team at Life Fitness.
Joe’s final day at Life Fitness is Thursday 29 September 2016.
