Many pioneers and trendsetters in this world are revolutionizing our daily lives
with their ingenuity, creativity, and diligence. More so is the case in the
health industry, where doctors and scientists are working relentlessly to
improve the quality of human lives. Some are in the process of formulating new
medicines while others are looking to enhance the way our body functions with
external hacks and supports. Dr. John Jaquish is one such personality who is
quickly paving his way to becoming the Tony Stark of the fitness industry.
Dr. Jaquish got his start in life sciences shortly after he was told that his
mother had been diagnosed with osteoporosis. In a situation where many would
ordinarily give up, John worked incessantly on a device that would help in
increasing his mother’s bone density. He eventually invented a medical device
that would safely stimulate the growth of new bone, also known as
, without any severe
complications or injury concerns.
The device successfully reversed his mother’s osteoporosis. Following the
ground-breaking success here, John dedicated four years of his life on
perfecting the device with an emphasis on comfort, biomechanics, and
skeletal-muscle movement. It was a part of his doctoral dissertation in
Biomedical Engineering at Rushmore University and through this time, he worked
with countless human subjects to enhance the usability of the device.
The end result of his efforts was OsteoStrong - a unique device meant to improve
bone density, posture, and balance, fight osteoporosis, and improve athletic
performance. It proved to be a massive hit and the device is now used in more
than 300 clinics across the world. The device is sold under the company of the
same name, where Dr. Jaquish is the Chairman of the scientific advisory
committee and is working with Tony Robbins - the famous American philanthropist,
who is a partner in the company.
OsteoStrong was just the start of his journey. Having helped over 30,000 people
through his invention, Dr. Jaquish wanted to scale new heights and improve the
quality of life even further. This eventually led him to develop the
X3 Bar resistance band bar system
- an avant-garde device meant to
promote muscle growth three times faster than traditional means by taking muscle
to a deeper level of exhaustion than possible with weights. It proved to be a
state-of-the-art invention that replaces or augments people’s workout programs.
It was a long journey that saw John experiment with fitness bands and different
mechanisms to support high loads without the risk of causing strain on joints,
wrists, and ankles, and injuring the user which bands by-themselves do if used
alone. After months of prototyping he perfected the
X3 Bar resistance band training system
. This enable the worlds
strongest variance, matched to normal human biomechanics, to trigger growth of
muscle. His device is now used by leading professional athletes (NBA and NFL),
Olympians, fitness models, personal trainers, gymnasts, police SWAT teams, among
tens of thousands of others.
For his efforts, Dr. Jaquish has also been featured in Forbes, Bulletproof
Radio, Google Tech Talk, Fox News, and Entrepreneur. He is also a nominee of the
National Medal of Science. He strives to eliminate misinformation in the fitness
world (of which there is a plethora) and present scientifically validated data
with real research to enhance people’s workout and help them achieve their
Dr. Jaquish has published his work in various medical journals. He was also a
member of the Board of Directors of American Bone Health. He is currently
working on advancing the research of physical medicine from both
dysfunction-care and high performance athletic perspectives."
