“The Healer’s” Extreme Testimonial Video

A few years back we got a call from a customer to order a Jacobs Ladder. They had told us that one of the reasons they purchased was because of the ‘guy’ on that did a great job of describing Jacobs Ladder and how it works. At that time, we had only put our promotional video on YouTube. Upon investigation, we found Martin McLoughlin of Extreme Fitness in Fallsington, PA. Martin (who calls himself “The Healer”) has a great comeback story and is not only a great guy but an excellent trainer. Since that time, we have become friends and use his original video to show people how Jacobs Ladder works and how it can be used.… [Read More]

In the article she paid us one of the biggest complements:

“My new favorite exercise is the Jacob’s Ladder. I used to watch old episodes and cringe as Jillian Michaels would put people on there for what seemed like hours! I went into the gym and faced it, and now I can’t get enough.”

Way to go Gina! Keep up the journey!… [Read More]

Is Functional Training Right For You?

Finding balance through fitnessI used to train for performance. Now, at age 50, I exercise so that I can continue to do the things that I enjoy and to keep my good health as long as possible. Although I can’t say with certainty that regular exercise will extend your life (my Polish grandmother lived until 85 and her only exercise was making pierogi!), I am convinced it will improve the quality of your life.
