From debilitating pain to summiting Mount Everest.

We are delighted to share this true story about a member who, through the BACKFOREVER and GOLFFOREVER programs, not only regained his life, but reached one of the world’s highest peaks.

For years, Tony struggled with back pain—with excruciatingly painful flareups. Watch this video and you can see that when Tony began BACKFOREVER, he couldn’t even tie his shoes.

Because Tony consistently followed the BACKFOREVER exercise regimen, he made remarkable progress—and in the spring of 2019 realized a life-long dream of climbing to the top of Mount Everest.

Tony’s story shows: change only comes with commitment—and that with commitment, anything is possible. Climb on, Tony!


You don’t have to scale Mount Everest to feel like a champion. Whether it’s enjoying a hike, pain-free, for the first time in months—or years, being able to lift your child or grandchild again, or getting back your golf swing, we want to cheer you on.
