The StaBallizer Core Training and Gaming System was created by Mitch Rost, a physical therapist and entrepreneur in Bend, Oregon. His company, Innovative Rehab Products (IRP), LLC, designs and builds products to simplify fitness and improve physical rehabilitation. Mitch designs and oversees the production of each product.
Beyond the primary goal of making exercise convenient and fun, Mitch has a mission to shift how exercise is perceived and administered in schools around the country, and to revamp the focus of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness. His decades of experience as a physical therapist in clinics throughout the Pacific Northwest give him a powerful perspective on what is needed to enhance physical well-being and better prepare all of us for a lifetime of recreational pursuits and workplace demands. His work helping people from all walks of life - from patients recovering from injury to elite athletes realizing unparalleled achievement - leave him uniquely positioned to recreate how exercise and fitness is done.
Mitch has been married to his wife Jennifer (also a physical therapist) for 16 years. They have two daughters, ages 10 and 13, who are responsible for product testing and moral support. They enjoy skiing, soccer, volleyball, fishing, swimming and watching movies together.
