Weight Loss

Fitness/ Weight Loss

Jacobs Ladder is the ideal weight loss exercise machine to add to your current fitness routine, and is the best low-impact training tool on the market today!

Study after study confirms that exercise using both the arms and legs requires more energy expenditure, and therefore burns more calories than exercises using just the arms or the legs. So, unlike stair-climbers, stationary bikes, and other standard club equipment, Jacobs Ladder can offer exercisers a superb cardiovascular workout in a relatively short amount of time. This means Jacobs Ladder is great for weight loss exercise!

The addition of Jacobs Ladder to your workout will provide anyone looking for weight loss with a unique fitness experience, while mixing up your routine.
