We know- Jacobs Ladder doesn’t look like your average exercise equipment. People ask us questions all the time. Here’s a list of the most common.
What is the belt for?
Jacobs Ladder exercise equipment is designed so that the user controls the speed and braking at all times. This ensures that the user is neither under- nor over-worked. The belt is the simplest, most reliable way to control speed and braking without compromising machine durability.
Is the angle of Jacobs Ladder adjustable?
No. We place the user at a 40° angle to take stress off of the lower back and place the spine in a more neutral position. This truly gives the user a ‘low impact’ workout on our exercise equipment where they are able to determine intensity. One customer once said, “Jacobs Ladder is the easiest machine to work hard on!”
Do I need to plug Jacobs Ladder or Stairway in?
No. Jacobs Ladder and Stairway are self-powered using a battery and generator combination. The Jacobs Ladder 2 model, designed for home use, needs to be plugged in to operate the digital display.
Can I get a lower body workout only?
Yes, Jacobs Ladder exercise equipment has long handles with durable grips. This allows the user to decide if they want a full-body workout or just a concentration on the lower body.
What do I need to do to maintain Jacobs Ladder?
Because of the simple design, Jacobs Ladder is relatively maintenance free. A full description of how Jacobs Ladder works with maintenance procedures is included on the Maintenance DVD that comes with the purchase of any Jacobs Ladder.
Tell me about the readout.
The Jacobs Ladder computer and readout offers Rate (feet per minute), Heart Rate, Total Feet Climbed, Elapsed Time and Calories Burned.
Does Jacobs Ladder come fully assembled?
Absolutely. Just remove your Jacobs Ladder exercise equipment from the custom-made pallet, roll it into place and start working out. It is that simple.
