Jacobs Ladder is a patented commercial cardio machine specifically designed for fitness enthusiasts, athletes and professionals. Its unique design places the user at a 40° angle in order to take stress off of the lower back. Because Jacobs Ladder is self-paced, the faster you move, the faster it moves. To slow down and to stop, you simply move slower and let it come to a full stop when ready. Jacobs Ladder is self-powered, so you don’t have to place it by an electrical outlet, allowing greater flexibility when placing it within your facility. Jacobs Ladder is ideal for military, fire and police training. It is also a favorite of athletic trainers who train professional athletes to develop strength and stamina.
