Testimonial Tuesday: Jim the Gymnast

This amazing testimonial was sent in by the son of a 68-year-old man who is a champion gymnast. His debilitating back pain kept him from the activities he loves, but after getting a Teeter, he’s back on the trampoline accomplishing some truly remarkable feats! Jim does moves on the trampoline that people half his age wouldn’t attempt – he’s setting a truly remarkable example for us all.

“My dad is 68+ years old and has suffered with back pain for as long as I can remember. In high school and college, he was a champion gymnast especially on thetrampoline. Back in the 60′s, trampoline was a collegiate event but due to its injury record, especially injuries of the back, it was basically outlawed. I can remember my dad telling me stories of him competing on trampoline and actually of one instance falling from the trampoline to his back several feet onto a concrete floor.

My dad has tried everything from chiropractic, acupuncture, magnet therapy, and expensive massages to relieve his back pain. He had basically become a Frankenstein monster with limited mobility and plenty moaning and groaning.

Recently he received a Teeter Hang Ups inversion therapy device as a gift from my step mother and LOVED it. He is always telling me how great his back feels now and how he no longer needs the chiropractor to function.

[The video is of a] nearly 70-year-old man who returned to the local gymnastics gym with a youthful rejuvenation and was able to perform like he did in his high school days. He had not been on a trampoline in decades but was able to perform these moves that his son – and a former gymnast 30 years his junior – would not even consider doing.

Thanks so much!”

Jim G.
