M-Core FTS LLC was founded in the spring of 2006 by Todd Gates. Mr. Gates was a strength and conditioning coach for over eight years.
He worked at UMass Boston, Rutgers University and Boston College. The idea for a new type of training station arose from
his own problem solving in the weight room. Mr. Gates needed a piece of equipment which was more versatile and one that
fit all his athletes. The standard exercise bench did not accomplish this and also had limitations in terms of functionality.
Mr. Gates came up with the idea of a bench that not only adjusted horizontally but also vertically so he would no longer have
to use plates to adjust a benches height to get his athletes in the right body positions for certain exercises.
More importantly he wanted a unit that targeted “core activation”. Mr. Gates’ invention solved all of his problems.
He created a bench that adjusted to his athletes instead of his athletes having to adjust to the bench.
More importantly he was able to create a unit that allowed your core to be activated at all times. Mr. Gates applied the
concepts of ergonomics and functionality and created world’s first patented multipurpose Training Station.
