Founders Story:

Barringer was definitely old and was a little on the heavier side. Various fitness experts have claimed that push-up is the best form of exercise but comes with a lot of pain on their wrists and joints in the body.

This led to the idea, whereby Barringer made this piece of exercise equipment so that he could do push-ups without putting so much stress on his shoulders and back. The Body Jac assists in keeping perfect form in order to perform the perfect push-up.
