Jacobs Ladder, LLC is the manufacturer of self-powered cardio equipment including the Jacobs Ladder, Jacobs Ladder 2 and Stairway Stair Climber. Unlike motorized cardio equipment, Jacobs Ladder cardio machines are powered by the user and integrate a proprietary tension cable and waist belt. The higher up the user climbs, the more the tension increases on the cable which in turn engages and releases the brake. Jacobs Ladder testimonials and reviews have been so positive that the Jacobs Ladder and Stairway Stair Climber can now be found in health clubs, pro sports teams, universities, military, police, fire, personal training studios and even in rehabilitation clinics.
Jacobs Ladder History. The original Jacobs Ladder was developed by Steve Nichols, a former Western N.Y. fitness champion. His participation in strenuous physical activity left him with severe back and knee problems that threatened to keep him from the conditioning he was accustomed to with traditional gym equipment. Because of his physical challenges, Steve began seeking alternative gym equipment to allow him to maintain his conditioning goals without encouraging further injury.
Gradually the Jacobs Ladder cardio machine began to take shape and when it was completed the new exercise was so effective Steve decided to sell the gym equipment.
Jacobs Ladder climber has proven its effectiveness to fitness professionals around the country. The response has been quite impressive, as you will note from the accompanying testimonials.
Now the next generation of the Jacobs Ladder is available for use by fitness professionals, gyms and their clients. With a commitment to product excellence, and the ability to provide a “One of a Kind” full body exercise, Steve promises you won’t find a more complete or effective single piece of gym equipment than Jacobs Ladder.
