journey gym At IHRSA 2014 Next To Some Of The Fitness Greats

This past week journey gym attended IHRSA 2014 in beautiful San Diego, California.  The show was the largest it had been in 4 years with nearly every major fitness equipment and programming company present.  With the hundreds of companies presenting, it was great to share the journey gym Systems with some of the great pioneers in our industry, with global distributors, and with clients.


Of course for journey gym, one of the critical pioneers of the stepper, step classes, and high intensity interval training (HIIT), is the amazing Reebok®. They helped take the step mainstream, where trainers added free weights, yoga mats, and barbells to their steppers and created in class interval training.

Fast forward many years, journey gym System took all of these various products (stepper, free weights, barbells, yoga mat) all into a singular product, then compressed it into a portable briefcase. Now, the benefits and the efficacy of the group class stepper, and free weight interval training courses, can be taken with you anywhere and at any time. Thanks to the pioneers as they always blaze the trail.

American Gladiator Jet Trains Her Clients With The journey gym System

We have a pretty amazing new development here at journey gym with a new trainer utilizing the system with her clients. We recently met an amazing local trainer named Monica Carlson, who was an actual American Gladiator on the famous TV show with Hulk Hogan and Laila Ali.

She was initially a contestant on the show fighting against the Gladiators and then they brought her on as an actual American Gladiator after that and named her Jet, as seen to the left here.

She is now training others on how to get to their ideal levels of health, and she is training those clients with the journey gym at Diva Den Studios. She started out with a select group of her closest clients, then got her whole family on the system, and is now opening up group classes for up to 30 participants at a time.

She recently made a short video here around both an indoor, and outdoor training session she completed with a small portion of her clients.

It shows how versatile the journey gym is, how she is utilizing it in multiple locations and how even the most in shape trainers in the world love the journey gym for their clients. Check out Jet, we mean Monica, and her clients getting fit on the journey gym at Diva Den:

Chris Is Losing Lbs. Quickly In New Zealand On Her journey gym

Here is a quote from Chris, one of our journey gym customers in New Zealand:

"Week 2 weigh in this morning (since my journey gym arrived, and day 4 of the 70-day programme), and I’ve lost 7lbs, plus one inch around my hips. Feeling lots more energy and more positive in terms of wellbeing, despite a stressful week at work.”

She goes on to say:

"I realise I always lose a lot of weight at the start of these sort of things, so I’m not expecting that to continue, but really pleased with the results. Looking forward to a more fit and healthier life."

Chris is a 48-year-old working mother of three. She bought a journey gym in New Zealand, through our partnership with Bernsport, because she has a busy life and not a lot of time leftover for exercise. But with a family history of diabetes and stroke, a lifestyle change was urgently required.

According to Chris, the journey gym is meeting her needs perfectly.  Thanks Chris for taking your health journey on...on the other side of the world.

Greg Hartle Finishes 50 State Tour & Workouts In Each State On journey gym

1 man, 10 dollars, 1 laptop, nearly 3 years, 500 interviews, and a journey gym. That's right, Greg Hartle, who traveled our great country on a mission to speak to 500 entrepreneurs, to learn how to build a business in the new economy, and to launch one viable business, is done with his Ten Dollars & A Laptop journey.

Greg not only accomplished everything listed here, but in parallel he worked out in all 50 states along the way on his journey gym. We don't know if any fitness company, in the history of the world, has had a single customer utilize their product in every state in our nation, but very few companies ever meet someone like Greg Hartle.  

See Greg nearly died of a rare kidney disease in his twenties. Fortunately, after months of dialysis, and with only a few months to live, his mother was able to provide him with one of her kidneys and Greg had a second chance at life.  He knew he could not return to the stressful business life he had had before and he knew his health and fitness were going to continue to be a top priority.

A journey gym Halloween & What To Do With Your Remaining Sweets

journey gym superheros Amy & Sophia gave out treats last week in Multnomah Village, just a few miles from our corporate headquarters. Was journey gym giving out candy? No way, it was spooky stickers and erasers, which everyone loved, kids and grownups alike.

We definitely encourage having a treat once in while, especially on special occasions. As we all know moderation is key, but now Halloween is over, it's time to get rid of those leftovers and that remaining candy and to continue on our health journeys.

To help in that effort here are a couple great options to clear your home of all of those additional sweets: 1. leave it out for the Sugar Witch (Tooth Fairy's sister) 2. Send them to our troops overseas via Operation Gratitude:  They will really appreciate it.
