My wife and I started Teeter in my forties as a result of my own journey to find relief from back pain.
At the time, I was designing waterskis and competing at a national level, though my back pain was so severe that I was forced to wear a steel reinforced lace-up brace every time I skied. Through other competitive skiers, I was introduced to Gravity Boots to relieve lower back pain and for the first time I was pain free. The relief was not just the result of silencing symptoms; inversion therapy was actually targeting the source of the ache. As an engineer, I knew I found my calling--to design and manufacture inversion equipment, like our Teeter Inversion Tables, so that more people could take control of their health and find natural, sustainable relief.
As I've aged, I have enjoyed the other benefits of inversion.
When you invert, you are not just helping the joints that ache, you are helping to maintain the health of all weight-bearing joints. I have been able to achieve what I call "functional fitness"--the ability to remain flexible and active. I am now in my seventies and I enjoy cycling, running, waterskiing, and experimenting with new activities like tow-in surfing and boogie-boarding the white water of the Zambezi.
Since 1981, inversion has been my work passion. Today, I am fortunate to have turned over the day-to-day running of the business to my daughter, Rylie, and her husband, Chris, and I focus on what I love--sharing the benefits of inversion.
Inversion has changed my life and I believe it will change yours.
I encourage you to try the Teeter® and feel the benefits for yourself. We offer a 30-day, 100% product cost refund. If you aren't sold on the benefits of inversion, just send it back (this offer varies with retailer--be sure to ask).
