A couple of years ago, I was working with a client who was having trouble squatting correctly, keeping her knees behind her toes. To help her, I tried holding her knees in place. Once she got the feel of that, I held her hands so that she could squat back without worrying about her balance. And she got it!
In that moment, I thought how great it would be to develop a machine that would hold the knees and ankles in perfect alignment AND provide stability and balance. Since then, I have been working to develop and perfect the Squat Master®.
My clients often ask, what is the very best exercise? I always say, if there is just one exercise that you have time for, I recommend Squats, but ONLY if the squats are done correctly! If the knees are out ahead of the toes, there is too much pressure on the knee joints and the lower back. You have to keep the knees over the ankles.
Now, with your help, we are ready to provide everyone with the opportunity to do perfect squats. Squat Master®is the first fitness machine that provides perfect alignment for squats, lunges and yoga poses. Squat Master® delivers these exceptional benefits:
- Burns 2Xs the calories of running
- Is a complete-body workout
- Aids with yoga poses
- Gives you an at home workout machine that is lightweight and collapsible for easy storage
- Does a BOOTY good: squats work the glutes providing maximum calorie burning while shaping and toning the booty!
- Perfectly aligns the ankles and knees, protecting the knee joints and lower back
- MADE in the USA
For 20 years we have been manufacturing products that are simple and easy to use and we are happy to say, the Squat Master is no different.
All Squat Master parts are sourced in San Diego. Final assembly and shipping will occur in our San Diego warehouse. Send us an email while you're in San Diego; we would love to give you a tour!
We have been building prototypes for 2 years and recently produced a run of 10 units which helped us determine part and labor costs. We are now ready to produce a large run for January, 2015 delivery. In producing the first large run, there will undoubtedly be adjustments in assembly and packaging but we are confident that we can make the necessary adjustments and meet our shipping commitment.
We will produce the highest quality squat machine that is easy to use, easy to move and store, requires no power and has no moving parts that can wear out or break. We would like to promise toned booties everywhere but that depends partly on you! Our goal is to deliver you a simple and elegant machine that provides perfect alignment for squats, lunges and yoga poses.
Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to that goal. Help us make the Squat Master by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page, and by spreading the word by sharing our page.

Risks and challenges
Product manufacturing and fulfillment always has its challenges: paint does not dry properly, boxes come in too small, workers have to be trained and trained again. But the beauty of manufacturing where you live is that you are on the ground every day. The best way to face challenges is to be directly involved with every step: be in communication with every provider and every worker. Be respectful yet dedicated to high performance. Our unique challenge will be to make sure that every Squat Master meets the highest standards and we plan to do this by being involved with every step every day. If a large obstacle presents itself, we will be in contact with you, our Kickstarter donors, immediately to provide you with status reports and shipping updates. That's our promise to you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
