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.
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.
More important, candidates like Walker and Jones threaten to further inculcate the idea that the Republican Party is inherently susceptible to candidates who espouse racist and anti-Semitic ideas. The Republican Party is, after all, both the party of Lincoln, and the party of Richard Nixon and Lee Atwater’s Southern strategy aimed at getting racists on board without, in Atwater’s own words, “saying, ‘nigger, nigger, nigger.’” And it’s also the party of the nation’s most prominent birther, who rode to the White House on a wave of what researchers in December 2017 called “racial resentment.”

“I’m not kidding when I say the choices here are just poor choices,” Hanson said. “Literally having a Nazi whose name is on the ballot on one side and an ineffective guy on the other. I don’t want to use Art Jones’ name any more than I have to. I just want to let people know you have a bad choice here. I want to transition this to a race about issues and focusing on what the district needs.” The district, he pointed out, has a sizeable black and Latinx population, as well as at least one Holocaust survivor, Stella Dorna, who was understandably unhappy to learn about Jones’ campaign. “We owe better to these people,” he said.
In January 2018, he became the only Republican candidate for Illinois's 3rd congressional district, despite that party's repeated disapproval of him gaining this position, as well as the controversy around him being a candidate.. Despite the GOP disavowing, 26.5 percent of voters still voted for him in the general election on November 6, 2018, as he lost by 47 points.
Patients are able to test and train on this equipment with the joints isolated and surrounding musculature in biomechanically correct positions and at speeds that replicate function. This technologically advanced system also permits the earliest possible post-operative intervention to decrease joint effusion (increase fluid), increase range of motion, and develop strength.

The MedX Lumbar Extension Machine has been extensively researched and studied at the University of Florida. Tests show remarkable increases in lasting strength with the use of this equipment. In fact, recently published scientific research dramatically validates the efficacy of MedX rehabilitation of chronic low back pain. A study published in the January 1999 edition of the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation showed that 35 or 38 patients recommended for spinal surgery were able to forego the surgery following 21 MedX sessions over a 10 to 12-week span. Although the study does not prove that increased strength prevents surgery, it does suggest that certain people can avoid surgery with proper spinal exercise therapy.
PCSM offers both Medical Treatment and basic Personal Training with MedX Rehabilitation. Both Drs. Maryann and Michael Sheps are health care professionals who have been certified in musculoskeletal evaluation and rehabilitation in both lumbar spine (low back) and cervical spine (neck) through MedX at The University of Florida and The University of San Diego Medical School for Orthopedic Medicine. With these certifications, patients receive more than just a personal trainer: they receive extended knowledge of physiology and biomechanics. This translates into the ability to safely rehab a patient’s condition while taking them through a full course of exercises.
In 2016 he was a supporter of Donald Trump for president. Jones said in an interview then, "I agree with a lot of what Mr. Trump has to say [...] He's his own man. I like the fact that doesn't have to go hat in hand to Jewish billionaires to get money". In February 2018, Jones nonetheless said President Trump "surrounded himself with hordes of Jews", and regrets his 2016 vote. At a neo-Nazi meeting in Kentucky, Jones said that Trump "surrounded himself with hordes of Jews including a Jew in his own family, that punk named Jared Kushner", and moved on to say "I'm sorry I voted for the son of a bitch, pardon my English" and that Trump was "nothing but a puppet … this Jew-loving fool", all of which was also captured on video.
