engaging in insider trading in the securities of Life Time Fitness, Inc. (“Life Time”).

Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 thereunder;
orders him to pay disgorgement of $536,167, together with
prejudgment interest thereon in the amount of $51,583, for a
total judgment of $587,750; and orders that $536,167 of that
amount is deemed satisfied by the $536,167 order of forfeiture
entered against him in United States v. Bret Beshey, et al., Crim.
No. 17-643 (N.D. Ill.).
The proposed judgment is appended to Weller’s Consent (Ex. A).
