In the beginning of my article “Shooting Up Stem Cells“, you see a video of me grunting, groaning and pushing against a special machine designed to quickly exhaust the muscles and allow for extremely efficient and effective “single set to failure” training.
Since then, I've mentioned this “special machine” in multiple podcasts, and I've finally managed to get the inventor onto my show…
The machine is called a “PeakFitPro” and the man who designed it is Dr. Chris Montanaro DC, DIBAK, DCBCN. Dr. Chris is a chiropractor and a Diplomate in AK and a Diplomate in Nutrition. He teaches certification courses to doctors of various disciplines including doctors of chiropractic, medicine, naturopathy, and homeopathy. Dr. Chris is also a member of the adjunct faculty of New York Chiropractic College & Palmer Chiropractic College in Florida. Dr. Chris is also an Advanced Theta Healing practitioner.
