WE ARE VERY excited to be offering the Teeter brand of inversion tables to our members. The industry leader since 1981, Teeter has a 31-year history of using inversion therapy to treat low back pain and help people keep active.

Inversion works like this: When you tilt back on the table, it uses your body weight and gravity naturally, creating something called progressive decompression. It essentially does the reverse of the compression that occurs while you stand.

This kind of stretch can help relieve back
pain, improve circulation, relieve stress
and fatigue, increase oxygen flow to the
brain, strengthen
ligaments, build
core strength,
encourage proper
posture—the list
goes on and on.

Many doctors, physical therapists and sports trainers use inversion to prevent compression, fatigue and joint injuries. Teeter has also been

endorsed by ultramarathoners, Olympic athletes, cyclists and golfers.

The Teeter model 600ia that Costco is carrying (Item #670978) offers several enhancements, such as an improved ankle system, a DVD with fitness routines and an adjustable lumbar/neck support. Costco’s price shows a $50 savings or greater to regular retail.

Always consult your doctor before trying inversion or beginning any type of new exercise regimen. C
