Getting Fit As A Group Of Neighbors In Sandpoint, Idaho


We recently had a group of families, all of whom live in the same rural neighborhood in Sandpoint, Idaho, all order their journey gyms in an effort to get fit as a community.  They had been dealing with a number of health issues amongst a very close group of friends and family, and in turn they reached out to journey gym to help improve their health.

So, more than 10 individuals started in late May on their collective 70 Day Challenge.  They are all working out to the daily emails received from journey gym, are keeping eachother motivated, and are ultimately keeping one another accountable.  The research is clear, that when there is a group of friends, or peers, aware of your goals, you are more likely to reach those goals as those individuals keep you accountable.

journey gym Receives 4th U.S. Patent On The Revolutionary Universal Gym

After more than four years of continual work, we as journey gym, have finally received our 4th issued U.S. patent around the journey gym portable universal gym, its platform, its design, and its handles.  

From the first prototype of the journey gym we knew we had a highly patentable fitness product, and that we needed to protect this invention.  

It has been a labor of love to create a product so different, so vastly applicable and unique, that it required 4 patents to help ‘the rest of us get fit’.   

Check out the line sketches that the United States Patent and Trademark Office reviewed and approved.  A special thanks to co-inventors John Friess, Robert Montgomery and Chris Gunson here.  

Also, a special thanks to our amazing patent attorney, who is just the best in the world at helping inventors garner the protection they need around their novel products.  

The foundation of intellectual property around the journey gym has already allowed for derivative products to be iniitally developed as prototypes, and the future for great new products is bright based on these.

11 Time Olympic Medalist Ryan Lochte Joins journey gym As An Owner

When journey gym learned that Ryan Lochte had been utlizing the journey gym for his recovery, and rehabilitation, from an MCL tear, and an ACL sprain injury, we were stoked to say the least.  We had sent Ryan a series of journey gyms to consider his ownership in, and involvement with, the company.  Just a couple of weeks after this an over zealous fan unexpectedly jumped on Ryan and he fell to the ground tearing his MCL and spraining his ACL.  

The journey gyms were there and Ryan was not to utilize free weights or to go to the gym.  The journey gym of course utilizes the exact resistance bands that Physical Therapists and Orthopedic Surgeons and Occupational Therapists utilize in prehabilitation and rehabilitation.  

So, Ryan utilized the journey gym daily to build his strength, to rehab his knee, and to help get back in the pool.  In the end Ryan stated that he recovered almost 3 months faster than expected and posted 3 of his best times of the year on his first meet back in the pool.  He said quote, "I didn't expect that ever after my injury."  

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.
