A Letter from our Founder and CEO
Hello. I am T.J. McCall and I want to personally invite you to enjoy all of McCall Fitness Industries’ products and services. Numerous benefits await you. I am the inventor of the Multi-Functional Core Bench, and L-iquid Youth, our superior anti-aging Optimal Nutritional Performance Supplement System.
In my previous life, I worked as a personal trainer and was a senior certified exercise specialist for the government. Health, fitness, and athletics have always been at the core of what I have done my entire life, both professional and personally. I love nothing more than helping others achieve their fitness goals.
Ever since I was a young boy, I’ve been involved in a whole host of sports. As I matured, I increasingly grew fascinated with the benefits of nutrition, sports fitness, and weight training. I have been actively involved in the health and fitness industry in one way or another for over 26 years. I have even trained government employees and personal clients to help them improve their fitness regimen and personal health so that they could excel in both their jobs and their personal lives.
During the preliminary stages of the development of McCall Fitness Industries, I was an unfortunate victim of a major traffic accident. In 2010, I stopped to assist a motorist who was involved in an accident on the freeway. Once medical aid arrived, I got back into my vehicle, and another car traveling approximately 70mph blind-sided me and struck my car. Consequentially, I sustained serious nerve impairment and structural damage to my back, neck, and shoulder which ultimately resulted in very limited daily activity for a very, very long time.
At the time of my accident, I was 35 years old and in the best physical condition of my life. But after the accident, I had to rebuild my body… and my life. I became focused and completely dedicated to a regimented exercise program and maintaining an extraordinarily healthy diet. For weeks, I was bed ridden and consumed with a great deal of pain. I knew that a long road of recovery laid ahead of me before I would be physically able to return to the gym. I consistently participated in physical therapy for almost two years, attending several appointments per week. This tragic accident caused me to have to put my life on hold for close to three years, but throughout it all I remained focused, disciplined, and motivated.
During my physical therapy, I knew the gravity of my physical limitations. My experiences as a certified trainer and my interactions with physical therapists reminded me every day of just how serious my condition really was. In fact, my doctors would not even release me back into the gym to workout the way I used to prior to the accident. I desperately needed an ‘in-home’ piece of quality fitness equipment so that I could perform my own therapy, at my own pace.
At the time of my accident, The Core Bench was merely a pencil sketch on a piece of lined binder paper. While I continued with my physical therapy, my insight, knowledge, and experience led me to an engineering and manufacturing company in Los Angeles, California. I commissioned them to build the very first Core Bench prototype. I intuitively knew what capabilities and possibilities that The Core Bench offered. Upon seeing it fully completed, I knew that it was the perfect piece of multi-purpose, gym-quality exercise equipment anywhere. And, as you will see, I was right — it is the absolute best. I spared no expense. I knew that I wanted the best, and that others like me will want the same.
In October 2011, the very first Core Bench was built, and I got to see my dream finally come to life. An amazing feeling overcame me to see that my thoughts, ideas, and blue-prints on paper finally transformed into actual physical form. Once The Core Bench was delivered, I began developing, designing, and fine-tuning my workouts — exercises that benefitted, rejuvenated, and strengthened my entire body. And I have kept going since that day. I rebuilt my entire life. Now my mission is to help others do the same.
I’ve diligently exercised to develop myself both physically and mentally. It is never an easy task, but with hard work and continuously putting one foot in front of the other, I’ve learned the true meaning of “Digging Deep.” Mark Twain once wrote, “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”
I believe that I am similar to many of you. The time for you to get started is right now — right this very minute. No need to wait until next week, next month, or even for next New Year’s Resolution.
I hope that you allow McCall Fitness Industries help you on your journey to achieving your health and fitness goals.
