Jim Lauter, inventor of The Balance Rider, earned his degree in Exercise Science at the University of Colorado. A high school football coach for 15 years, Jim also holds the distinction of having been the first, ever, in home personal trainer in the busy resort town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Always involving himself in cutting edge technology, Jim has become an expert in the fields of proprioceptor exercise and core training. Married to a lifetime horsewoman, Jim conceived the idea for The Balance Rider to specifically target––from a unique seated position––the core muscles and proprioceptors that are so vital to physical fitness. “Balance,” Jim says, “is not always recognized as an essential component of fitness. But the simple fact is that every form of physical activity –– even just walking, sitting upright or getting in and out of a chair––is enhanced by good balance.”
