Teeter wants to encourage you to get more limber! Yes, we know that getting more flexible is difficult, but there are so many benefits that you’re missing out on if you don’t try! Flexibility is one of the keys to relieve stress, have better posture, and relieve back pain.
With our Special Edition EP-970 Ltd. Red promotion/charity fundraiser last month, Teeter was able to donate $3,000 to Childhaven thanks to YOU!
Our founder and spokesman Roger Teeter frequently talks about the importance of maintaining functional fitness into one’s senior years. And he lives by example – here’s Roger earlier this month teaching his 5-year old grandson how to waterski! To Roger, and so many other super seniors out there, it’s all about the ability to stay active and do what you love.

Thank you to our Veterans, for holding up our flag – both physically and in principle.
It’s not like we think we are the only company ever that has been in business for over 30 years, but when you look at who else was making inversion tables 30 plus years ago, Teeter is the only one that is still around. Why?
Are you inspired by Roger Teeter and his love of inversion? Wether you love it, laugh at it or want to learn more, Roger’s love of inversion is catching attention.
Unique to the ComforTrak-Series
At Teeter, we are always looking for ways to improve your inversion experience. Some of our features are dramatic and some are subtle… but all of them are built with your inversion experience in mind!
Teeter’s Grip-and-Stretch Handles offer unique gripping points built into the ComforTrak bed and A-frame that allow additional decompression and stretching, as well as offering hand holds for release from full inversion.
Stretching: The hand holds in the bed frame help you get a firm grip as you stretch and rotate on the bed to help you achieve greater flexibility and range of motion.
Decompression: While you are inverting to 60 degrees or greater (parallel with the rear leg of the A-frame), you can use the Grip-and-Stretch Handles on the Teeter to help you further decompress and increase your stretch.
Release: If you are one of our users who appreciate full inversion, then you can use the handles to help you pull yourself out of full inversion more easily.
How long before you feel the benefits?
Given time, your body has an amazing ability to heal itself. But like starting a new exercise program, it can take some time to see the results. Stick with it, invert often and be patient. Work on getting your body to relax and release – that is how you will experience the most benefits. Gentle movements and stretching can help with this process. Some people feel the benefits immediately and some may need 2-3 weeks before their bodies begin to adapt.
Here are a few other helpful tips for beginners:
- Pre-Set the Angle: Set your Angle Tether to a modest angle – you can then focus on relaxing and adjusting to inversion.
- Make Changes Gradually: Increase your angle and/or duration of inversion in small increments. Don’t attempt to do too much, too soon. It’s all about relaxation, not about how far down or how long you can invert.
- Breathe: Close your eyes and take deep breaths. Concentrate on relaxing your muscles to experience the most benefits.
With new life all around and Spring in the air, it is the perfect time to adopt some new (or refreshed), healthy habits. Here are 5 easy ones to adopt this spring:
1. Add Lemon to Your Water
Putting a squeeze of lemon into your water may have many health benefits. From clearer skin, to weight loss and boosted immune function – there are so many reasons to enjoy your 8 daily glasses with a bit of citrus. For more tips, read here.
2. Unplug One Day a Week
From smartphones, tablets, computers, laptops, video games and the myriad of technological devices that keep us connected – people are removing themselves more and more from the here and now. Taking one day a week to shut off all electronic devices and focus on life and people in front of us can be restorative, nurturing and improve our relationships with our loved ones. Want to learn more about how taking a break from technology can benefit you, your health and the world? Read this article.
3. Ditch the Diet Drinks
Humans have only been ingesting chemicals for about a generation. We don’t know what they do to our bodies, how they affect our DNA or our hormones and how it may or may not affect how long we live. Knowing all of this – why do we still choose to put them in our bodies? The more we learn about diet drinks, the less good news there is. The chemicals are addictive, and they change the way our brains work. Try kicking the diet soda habit, and replacing it with healthier alternatives. Read more about why to kick the habit here.
4. Get Rid of Your Junk
Possessions can drag us down and create mental stress where stress doesn’t need to be. Clutter wastes time because we have to dig through it to find things, and it creates anxiety if it encroaches on your day-to-day life (messy desks, cluttered drawers, mountains of laundry, etc.). Figure out what you can sell, donate or toss a bit at a time to free your life of unnecessary things. Try to find two things to get rid of every time you bring one new possession into your house. For more tips, read here.
5. Get Your Vitamin D
Regular doses of sunlight are good for you. Too much can cause harm, but regular doses help with immune function, weight loss and calcium absorption. Learn more about daily doses and how to incorporate sessions of sunlight into your lifestyle.
