The Story of Tension Toner

The Story of Tension Toner

After years of weight training and thinking I knew everything there was to know about exercising, I learned a hard lesson. I was sidelined by a shoulder injury after a routine gym workout.

I was in excruciating pain. Every time I moved my shoulder too quickly or in a certain direction, it felt like I was being speared by a harpoon. My shoulder pain became even worse at night. I would wake up in a cold sweat grabbing my shoulder and trying to massage away the pain.

About that time I started exercising with a prototype of Tension Toner, which was inspired by towel exercises my grandpa had shown me when I was 9 or 10 years old. I remember my grandpa taking a hand towel from the bathroom closet and telling me to pull on it. I was shocked by how sore my back and shoulder muscles were the next day.

I took that concept, and created Tension Toner as a unique way to exercise muscles in two planes of motion. However, after being sidelined from weight training, I was able to experience firsthand the amazing benefits of Tension Toner.

I put my product to the test and used Tension Toner to completely rehabilitate my shoulder. Looking back it’s clear to me now that I was overdeveloping the same muscle groups and neglecting my pulling muscles (i.e rear shoulders, back, trapezius and rhomboid muscles).

This was creating muscle imbalances and over time putting undo strain on my shoulder. That injury taught me the incredibly important lesson of balancing muscle strength, particularly in my pulling muscles. From that day on, I have used Tension Toner during every workout session.

In a small way, my grandpa’s legacy continues to live on through Tension Toner. From helping people lose weight, gain muscle, rehabilitate joints and prevent injuries, Tension Toner is transforming lives all over the world.
