Life Time Fitness CEO to forgo salary

For his fiscal 2008 compensation, Akradi will receive 188,960 shares of restricted stock that will vest annually over four years beginning March 1, 2009. The number of shares vesting on each annual date may be reduced by up to 25 percent if the company does not meet certain financial performance measures during fiscal 2008, it said.

The compensation committee also approved increased stock awards for the company’s other executive officers, in lieu of no increase to salary or cash incentive bonus.
