History of Exer-Genie
Exerciser and decided to put the exercise
concept to the test to see if it could provide a valid method for exercising astronauts in micro gravity. Using the Lockheed Human Performance Laboratory in Sunnyvale, California, NASA scientists put the EXER-GENIE® Exerciser through a series of extensive studies based around Isometrics, Isokinetics, Isotonics, Variable Resistance and Resistive Aerobics. They found the unit to be extremely effective in conditioning muscle fiber and maintaining bone mass in micro gravity.

exerciser's technology along with
36 years of research and applicat-
ion for the busy person looking to
take better care of themselves. It is the
answer to the 5 problems in exercise. Time,
Boredom, Soreness, Convenience, Staying With It. Starting with 2 minutes a day you make taking care of the most valuable asset you have (your body) a habit. The instructional material has been developed to make physical conditioning and shaping up safe, simple and effective in the time spent.
Team America Health & Fitness purchased the EXER-GENIE® and Team America soon appointed Jim Warren as the National Director. Jim has worked with an EXER-GENIE® since 1971 and now with a Degree in Physical Education from the University of Northern Illinois, Grad work at the University of North Texas, and with his extensive knowledge in Fitness and business development, Jim Warren decided to take the reigns of the business.
Team and Jim Warren upgraded the EXER-GENIE® to The Trainer Custom Series Exer-GenieEXER-GENIE® Exerciser and made a few changes to the device allowing it to operate smoother and more efficiently. The Trainer Custom Series EXER-GENIE® is still in high demand and is considered one of the most essential and best-kept secrets in personal training. It is used by world class athletes, professionals of all disciplines of the sports world, and it is also amazingly versatile and adaptable enough to be used by the entire family and the American business man or woman in their hotel room, and more importantly on the fields of our future athletes at all youth sports facilities.
the tired muscle isotonically through the full range of motion, made the EXER-GENIE® exerciser ideally suited for this theory as well as other theories of exercise. Strength, endurance, flexibility and technique can be developed in minimum time, reducing repetition and boredom. In 2008 that system became known as The Trainer Custom Series EXER-GENIE® Exerciser.
From there the EXER-GENIE® went through a lot of amazing advances and experiments including being part of Nasa's astronaut program and playing a big role in keeping the astronauts fit for their 500,000 mile journey into space on Apollo 7, 8 which orbited the moon 10 times, as well as on the Apollo 11 flight to the moon. The EXER-GENIE® also excelled in the sports world and was accepted by thousands of schools, colleges, and professional teams as well as Olympic athletes. By allowing the motion of the sport to be simulated against selected resistance and uniform through a complete range of motion, the EXER-GENIE® became a must have for all sport enthusiasts.
