The district sweeps in the old Chicago Democratic machine wards of 11, 13, 14, 19 and 23 and meanders through a corridor to wide swathes of southwest suburban turf. The district was drawn to protect Lipinski, whose father, William — a former congressman — is close to House Speaker Mike Madigan, D-Chicago, who is also the chairman of the Democratic Party of Illinois.
Pete was born and raised in Rexburg, ID. After earning a bachelor’s degree in exercise physiology from Brigham Young University Idaho, he completed his Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) at Pacific University in Hillsboro, OR in 2018. Immediately after graduation, Pete joined the staff at RehabAuthority in Nampa having already completed a nine-week clinical internship with them.

The Jewish lobby has Donald Trump locked up. I don’t think the man realizes how naive he appears to the rest of the world. He’s nothing but a puppet in their hands. And we were foolish enough to send this naive, Jew-loving fool into the White House. I’m embarrassed that I voted for him. I’m sorry I voted for him. If I could take the vote back, I would in a minute.
Hanson, who describes himself as “center-left” on most issues, is also uninspired by Lipinski, who has held his seat since 2005. Hanson speculates that Lipinksi has mainly held on so long because his father held the seat before him. (Lipinski is best known as being a conservative, anti-abortion Democrat and narrowly won his own primary over Marie Newman, a businesswoman.)

The combination of our physical medicine & rehabilitation physicians, advanced practice physical & occupational therapists, and clinically-based protocols utilizing MedX therapy equipment and lifestyle-modification programs, yield very high recovery rates without the use of invasive therapies or surgery.
This is not a good look for the Illinois Republican Party. It’s evidently too late for party officials to do anything except ask Jones to drop out, which he’s unlikely to do. “There is no room for Neo Nazis in American politics,” Gov. Bruce Rauner said Monday. Except there will be room for Jones on the GOP ballot. More bad news: The deadline passed for a primary election write-in candidate to register, though there is an opportunity for someone to run as a write-in or independent for the Nov. 6 general election. As for what to do in the primary, we hope Republican voters in the 3rd district are aware that Jones is a cretin and do not support him. The closer to zero votes he gets, the better.

Rehabilitation providers worldwide have experienced outstanding outcomes using the MedX Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines. This is attributed to medical evidence that shows that the majority of patients with chronic spinal pain are significantly “deconditioned”. Weakness of the musculature of the spine can lead to many conditions such as herniated discs, facet syndrome, and degenerative joint disease. A strong spine provides a strong foundation that allows for healthy spaces between the vertebrae, which helps prevent spinal compression.”
Nobody else ran as a Republican in the primary because politics is a results-oriented business and the chance of a Republican winning are slim. The boundaries were drawn by Democrats to elect a Democrat. Rep. Dan Lipinski, the incumbent, will face Marie Newman in the Democratic primary, and one of those two will win on Nov. 6. There are other Democratic strongholds in the Chicago area featuring a lone Republican. It can be a Maytag repairman-like assignment.

Twenty years ago John Kelly, the owner of Austin Personal Training and New Orleans Fitness Trainers, had been living with chronic back pain for three years. Sitting was painful; he avoided long trips and going to the movies. Even at night school which would often last more than two hours he would stand the entire time. He did everything he could short of the recommended surgery to alleviate it; he walked, swam, stretched, and bought a new bed. About this time he began using the MedX Lumbar machine in a doctor's office twice a week and then once a week. Over several weeks his back finally became pain free. Studies show others have had similar results. For the last twenty years he has remained pain free except in rare times when he has strayed from a regime of regular exercise for his back. Others have had such profound improvement in the health of their lower back they have bought this $7000 piece of equipment for their home.

By 1984, approximately 4,700 Nautilus Fitness Centers covered the United States. Complete lines of the equipment were the choice in physical rehabilitation centers, professional sports teams training rooms, colleges, high schools, and private facilities, despite the belief of a large majority of weight-training experts that traditional training with free weights produced superior results.
Over the last 15 years, the Universities of Florida and San Diego, along with various orthopedic clinics around the world, have published some of the most compelling research to date. This research shows that specific spinal strengthening exercises using the MedX Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines help people get better, even after multiple failed attempts at other forms of treatment. With more than 75 published articles in peer-reviewed journals, the proof lies in both the research and the testimonials of thousands of people around the world.
MedX is the highest-quality and most researched fitness, sports and medical/rehabilitation equipment in existence. Developed in 1986 by Arthur Jones, founder of Nautilus, MedX is the leader in medical exercise technology. Its rehabilitation method is based on high intensity training and has a proven track record of to helping individuals who have not had success with other forms of treatment.Under the supervision of our MedX Certified trainers, patients safely perform short, single sets of exercises with maximum intensity: isolating and strengthening muscles in the back and neck. PCSM’s facility has recently expanded to include MedX Super Slow consisting of 12 stations for core exercise and entire body rehabilitation. With over 15 years of research, MedX is recognized as the highest standard for treating and reducing chronic back pain including, degenerative joint disease, spinal stenosis, and individuals who are recuperating from back injuries.
MedX allows you to set weight increments by 2 pounds, instead of five to ten pound increments. The method of strength training that we use at Vertex Fitness requires that you fatigue the muscle within 50-70 seconds, and not over a long period of time. If you increase the weight by too much, the muscle may fatigue too fast. If you cannot increase the weight because you must wait for a ten pound increment, the workout will not be as effective.
"There is simply nothing better than MedX. Our patients love MedX and experience excellent results. I also own decompression equipment and we find our outcomes are much better with the combined with MedX versus decompression alone. Tony and FitStrength have provided us with excellent service, knowledge and commitment to helping our practice grow. I have worked with Tony for over 10 years and recommend giving him a call. Our MedX equipment is an intergral part of our success."

Arthur Jones is the legendary founder and developer of Nautilus exercise equipment. He pioneered the concept of high intensity, joint specific strength training and was the first to develop machines dedicated to each area of the body. He proved, through exhaustive research, that it is the most effective way to get results in the shortest period of time. When he evaluated the back extension machine, he found it did not do an adequate job of strengthening the back muscles. In 1972 he began what was to be fourteen years of research and development with the goal of designing the first meaningful tools for testing spinal function, including strength, muscular endurance, and ranges of motion. In 1986, he founded the MedX Corporation and after years of development and testing, validated by independent research teams at the University of Florida, perfected the medical lumbar extension machine. He subsequently developed the cervical extension machine providing the medical community with the first tools capable of producing specific and accurate tests of functional ability, as well as the finest source of rehabilitative exercise. These machines have helped hundreds of thousands of people around the world eliminate their back and neck pain. Arthur Jones devoted his life to educating people about the proper way to exercise and designing equipment best suited to his training methods.
Brian is an avid believer in physical therapy and the value that it can have in improving the health and well-being of our society. Helping others reach their personal goals with regards to their daily function is his primary goal each and every day. Playing sports such as softball, basketball, and racquetball are his favorite past times, as well as rooting on the Utah Jazz. He is blessed every day by the support of his wonderful wife Nicole and their three beautiful children.

Jones is no mystery candidate. He’s run for the U.S. House numerous times. He’s campaigned to be a Chicago alderman, Chicago mayor and Milwaukee mayor. There’s nothing to prevent a provocateur from seeking office, of course, but winning an election, even a Republican primary in a district rigged to elect a Democrat, is an honor he befouls. It’s a shame Illinois Republicans weren’t paying closer attention.
Legends like John Grimek, Arnold, Sergio Oliva, and Steve Reeves made the pilgrimage to DeLand, Florida to meet Arthur, train on the Nautilus equipment and learn. Peary Rader, founder and publisher of IronMan, told me of a phenomenon reported by his readers: Upon receiving the magazine, subscribers would read the Nautilus advertisements first! They found more information in Arthur's advertisements than in the magazine articles.

As a Catastrophic Nurse Case Manager, I rely on Comp-X as my transportation company of choice because of their customer service. I was in a position where I needed transportation to the hospital for my 11 year-old niece who was diagnosed with a terminal grade IV tumor and Ashley Pepka, V.P. of Business Development, was quick to say “okay we can do this for you.” Comp-X is a company you can trust with your family’s care.
"I've been broke more times than I care to count and I still made the Forbes Fortune list of the 400 richest by the mid-1980s. When I sold Nautilus Sports/Medical Industries in 1986, I owned a large farm located north of Ocala, Florida. The 350 acres of prime real estate housed the largest privately owned airport. including three Boeing 707 airliners and the largest exclusively owned collection of exotic wild animals. My menagerie consisted of 100 African Elephants, 4,000 crocodilians, three albino rhinos and Micky, my 400 pound pet gorilla."
Hanson called the police as a precaution, though it turned out to be fairly uneventful: “He came into my backyard. I wasn’t allowing it. He called me a coward because I wouldn’t debate the Holocaust.” Hanson told Jones to leave, and added, referring to the American flag hat Jones was wearing that day, “I told him he didn’t deserve to wear a hat with the flag on it.” Upon departing, Jones left some literature with Hanson, which Hanson gently described as “kooky stuff” about how women shouldn’t play in the NFL.
In Lake Helen, Florida, Jones built a $75 million corporate headquarters, which incorporated sound stages, film editing rooms and two homes. His privately held company had an estimated reported annual income of $300 million and was regarded as the largest manufacturer of exercise machines in the world. Physique legends John Grimek, Steve Reeves, Bill Pearl, Sergio Oliva, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Franco Columbu, Boyer Coe, Mike and Ray Mentzer and Casey Visator made their pilgrimage to meet the cantankerous tycoon and to train on Nautilus equipment.
Ryan enjoys the interpersonal aspect of therapy and shows a genuine compassion for those he is treating. He believes therapy is not only treating the physical body but treating in a holistic manner (body, mind, spirit). When Ryan is not at the clinic he enjoys spending time with his wife and dog. His faith is his rock and the reason behind everything he does. He has a large passion for all sports and outdoor activities from hunting to a weekend at the lake. He is excited to be back in his hometown and give back to the community he cares so passionately about!

BEWARE!  I paid my medical bill, then got billed again.  It took two of us to figure out the billing.  The Medx representative said let me review your bill, then said this is your bill.    I paid my bill in full.  Then I got another bill and called Medx, they transferred me to voice mail. I called the doctors office and they got through in minutes, called me back and told me Medx made a billing error.  First sign of a company doing bad business is when they don't use their company name when answering the phone.  Second sign of bad business is when the billing company does not have their name, address or phone number anywhere on the billing.  Makes me wonder how many people are getting wrongly billed again and paying the bill.  Also how many senior patients are getting wrongly billed and paying.
Jones won the party's nomination in March when he ran unopposed for an open seat in Illinois' Third Congressional District. The Republican Party failed to put up a candidate to run against Jones, believing the heavily Democratic district to be unwinnable. Jones will be facing incumbent Representative Dan Lipinksi in the general election this fall.

- Get your life back. If you’re accustomed to living an active lifestyle filled with rewarding physical activities, EIF can help — especially if you love to golf. The Lumbar Extension machine is great for golf exercises for the lower back, since the equipment targets the core muscles used during the swing. Improve core rotation and speed, and see how quickly you can improve drives off the tee.
When using the MedX Lumbar Extension Machine the deep lumbar muscles are isolated by stabilizing the pelvis and legs. The machine is also able to compare a patient’s strength with normative values, meaning we can see how strong or weak you are compared to people the same age, height, weight, and gender. Although everyone is different, these numbers help us establish a baseline to identify deficits and evaluate how effective the treatment is.
Jones’s candidacy comes at a time when far-right groups have had new clout in the national discussion: Some hate groups have ramped up recruitment on college campuses and, for a time, some far-right leaders imagined they had an ally in the White House in Stephen K. Bannon, who served as an adviser to President Trump before departing his post in August.
The MedX line also includes the Cervical Extension, Rotary Neck and Rotary Torso, and Knee/Hamstring machines, which are used to produce specific and accurate tests of functional ability and as a tool in rehabilitative exercise. In addition to the medical exercise equipment that we are adding to the studio, MedX also offers a line of exercise machines which we have utilized since we opened in 2001, which incorporate their patented compound weight stack which produces less friction and enables several hundred levels of available resistance in increments of 2ft-lbs.

Cindy and I found Greg easy to deal with. He was quick to respond to our questions and concerns befo...re our purchase. He went over and above. He installed our low back machine for us, showed us how to use it, gave us some helpful suggestions on our existing equipment AND, even helped us move a machine we wanted to move in another room. We will definitely use him again! Thank you Greg! See More

His website says he’s “concerned about the future of our country,” which, for a normal politician, might sound like a generic call for more spending on their generic priorities. But it takes on a very different connotation when you click over to the section called “Holocaust?,” a page that features a variety of conspiracy theories and racist ideas shared by the Holocaust-denier world.
