On January 20th, 2011 Slate’s Justin Peters wrote about “How the Soloflex Changed America”.
He hit the nail on the head. Soloflex brought the world the infomercial and did it in a much less in your face kind of way. Soloflex understood the body we are all looking for and presented the body for all of us to stare at. These ads and approach were the building blocks for all other home weight lifting companies.
Please read this great article here and relive the beginning again along with Mr. Jerry Wilson’s crazy ride to success.
If you are not familiar with Dr. Mehmet Oz you have not been paying attention to the health issues currently at hand. Dr. Oz has been seen on Oprah as well as many health programs on television and magazines. Dr. Mike Roizen is the chief medical officer at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute.
Dr Oz was in Portland, Oregon at the Oregon Health and Science University’s Center for Health and Healing to give 15 minute health screenings along with others from OHSU. He is touring the country highlighting the importance of regular checkups and preventive medicine.
To read the entire list of the tips they are giving in the Oregonian please read here. It is very informative and very easy for all of us to follow.
Dr. Mercola currently runs the #1 natural health website in the world. He researches and does his own studies on all aspects of health and fitness.

This Soloflex customer has been using his Soloflex Muscle Machine for years and he says he feels and looks great because of it. He does look great. The picture shows just how Soloflex has allowed him to get out and stay active and healthy. Thank you so much for the picture and for sharing your story with us. Keep up the great work and send us updates anytime.
Exercise and good eating habits are a huge part of your sex drive and sex life. Many studies have been done regarding the different sex lives of active healthy people and inactive poor health people. This seems like it is all too obvious but many adults run to pills to help with a better sex drive and sometimes all they really need is to take better care of themselves. This will also make others more attracted to you. We all want to be considered pretty or handsome. For more great information and details read here.
HBO ( Home Box Office) has just started a new special that is so full of valuable health information I do not know where to begin. They are trying to help slow down and or stop our nations obesity epidemic. They have teamed up with some of the most health knowledgeable doctors and persons in our country to share information that could save our lives and our nation from the ever rising health cost. We are spending too much money on health care after we are sick and not enough on prevention and education.
Please read on with me while I post from this special or go to HBO.com and please watch the episodes yourself and begin your journey to a healthier you or family member. The more we know the more we can help ourselves.
Thank you HBO and all of the contributors to this very important message of health. We needed this.

The following is a letter (email) we received a couple of days ago from a customer that has been able to get relief from Whole Body Vibration in a way we never even thought of. WBV is helping with vertigo. Below is the wonderful email we received and we wanted to share with others in case they too could benefit from WBV. Thank you Ginger for sharing.
This is a testimonial regarding the Soloflex Whole Body Vibrator Board.
As a child, I had many inner ear infections. As a senior, I began having episodes of severe vertigo. This is caused by residues of sludge that cling to the tiny hairs in the semi-circular canals, (called canoliths), and break off causing terrifying vertigo lasting only moments but longer lasting nausea.
I began using the Soloflex Vibrator Board twice a week for 10 minutes at the strongest setting. This causes the sludge to stay in suspension and disallowing canoliths to form. Once I got so busy that I failed to do the Vibrator Board for a month. The canoliths formed and broke off and I had a miserable, violent episode of vertigo. This simple practice for many years now has done what modern medicine has failed to do in treating this type of vertigo.

Here is a letter we received from one of our wonderful long time customers. We wanted to share his thoughts with you. Thank you again Bill for taking the time with write us. It truly means a lot.
I wanted to take the time to write you and thank you for your great products, your great support, and for your prior professional sponsorship.
I bought my first Soloflex in 1987 and my Rockit in the first year it was released, and have used them religiously for many years. It has helped me compete in multiple competitions, including: Martial Arts, Boxing, the “Survival of the Fittest”, Motorcycle Racing, Ski Racing as well throughout my Search and Rescue volunteer work.
Soloflex sponsored me when I first started skiing professionally, back in 2000. Since then, and thanks to the fine Soloflex products I was able to win the “Professional World Cup” series in 2001, 2002 and 2004, and the Mountain Dew racing series in 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004, and retire from professional competition as “World Champion”.
Now, after a serious knee injury sustained while skiing two seasons ago, I am rehabilitating my knee with the Soloflex Muscle Machine and the Rockit. I have progressed beyond the sports-rehab centers to performing rehab in my home gym and have seen fantastic results, which I attribute to your great products.
I want to thank Soloflex for being a huge part of my training, and for backing me during my rise to become champion, and upon my relocation to Portland, Oregon in the next year or so, I hope to thank you in person at your Oregon facility.

We have received the funnest email from a long time customer recently and I feel like sharing it with you. He is a delight to talk to and has also sent us some great photos, that his wife took, that I would also like to share. He looks great for any age.
Here are the emails……
You have any promotional use, quite aside from mere and exceedingly mild curiosity, in a pix of a naked-to-the-waist, firm and muscled (but not a body builder) 76-year-old male who credits 20 years of Soloflex usage three times a week for his appearance and, at last report, good health? That is I (me). If not, NO NEED TO REPLY. If yes, I will require my wife’s technological skills to take the pix on her irritating I-phone and transmit it on this infernal computer, so there would be some delay. I am David N. Mitchell, and I live in Santa Fe, N.M., and am very old. The question arose in my increasingly demented mind when I took off my t-shirt upon arising this morning, looked in the bathroom mirror and said to my 5-foot-9, 156-pound self, “self, that’s pretty good for a codger.” I then began my (your) machine workout, which took 90 minutes and still needs three sets of tricep effort to be complete.
all of which is far more than anybody making a living at Soloflex should have to read. So don’t, Oops, too late. Sorry. As the cliche has it, have a good day. I (we) must go to a neighborhood party this evening, a fate not to be wished, at least by me, and which precludes a nice day.
Courtesy of my amused but tolerant and skilled spouse, here are a couple of photos, taken today, Monday, of me at age 76. Looking at these, I realize that I am not remotely as lovely as I thought I was, and I will not be emotionally damaged if you and your fellow employees of Soloflex have a good laugh before destroying them and sending me a nice, thoughtful, courteous, well-meaning but in-the-end untrue thank- you note. I fear the dog, who was at my feet during this absurd posturing, did not show up in full fur, but he still looked a lot better than I do.
I noted to him in my email that we were most interested in his photos and so glad I did. I want to publicly thank Mr. Mitchell for taking the time to use the Soloflex and to share it with us. He is proof that if you use it you will not loose it. Exercising is the best medicine we can offer ourselves. Keep up the great work and enjoy your many years to come. Thank you wife too for her amazing photography skills.
