OsteoStrong Fairhope Selected by Franchise to Participate in Planning Session with Tony Robbins

FAIRHOPE, Ala. (January 26, 2017) – As one of OsteoStrong’s fastest growing locations, Kyle Zagrodzky, OsteoStrong Founder & CEO stated, "He was pleased to have Josh & Maxine Fandrich, along with a handful of other OsteoStrong owners, represent OsteoStrong in a planning session with his newest partner, and long-time user of Osteogenic Loading, Tony Robbins.”


OsteoStrong Fairhope opened in June, 2016 at 333 Greeno Road South, Unit 2B, and is locally operated by Josh & Maxine, who are also the Regional Developers for AL. Josh & Maxine have enjoyed bringing Osteogenic Loading to the Fairhope & Huntsville areas and they are in the process of raising funds to open their next center in Mobile, AL.


Josh & Maxine also participated in Tony Robbins Business Mastery seminar learning the secrets to running a successful business. Over five days and nights, Business Mastery helps business owners understand the critical factors impacting their business and how to refocus and realign with the business

strategy and psychology you need for competing and innovating in an ever-changing economy. Osteogenic Loading is a brief set of highly controlled, acute impact loads that greatly bolster bone density, according to clinical studies. The system improves overall strength, balance and posture and helps with joint pain. Sessions are sweat-free and take less than 10 minutes a week, yet they are powerful enough to trigger a physiological response that creates new

tissue growth days after the session.


The equipment allows the user to safely resist four or more times their body weight, the amounts required to trigger new bone growth. Researchers Tobias and Deere published a study in 2012 showing that bones require brief impact level forces of 4.2 times their own body weight to trigger new bone growth. With Osteogenic Loading, achieving that level of force is not only possible, it’s easy, won’t hurt, and doesn’t leave people feeling fatigued.


Studies also show that both bone density and strength gains continue with long-term regular weekly sessions. "Our members are seeing amazing gains in their strength with one 10 minute session and love the fact that they don’t have to go to a gym 3 days a week to achieve this result,” said Josh.

About OsteoStrong

OsteoStrong leverages clinically researched osteogenic stimulation methodology to help people of all ages and fitness levels enhance bone health, balance, overall strength, and posture. Sessions also alleviate back and joint pain. Created based on research in cellular biology, anti-aging, longevity, and bone mass production, the OsteoStrong system triggers the growth of new bone and muscle density in 10-minute sessions just once per week.


OsteoStrong’s proprietary system engages bone and muscle development and delivers many benefits of strenuous exercise without risk of injury. More than 30,000 people have seen amazing results since the brand launched in 2012. Many who attend sessions just once per week are reversing osteoporosis, improving balance, eliminating chronic joint and back pain, reversing fibromyalgia, and regaining physical

Original Oyster House Sponsors Oyster Trailblazer Calendar for Oyster Restoration

With the historic launch of Alabama’s first Oyster Shell Recycling Program, the timing was perfect for the 2017 Oyster Trailblazer Calendar to reiterate the importance of the oyster reef restoration in an educational calendar and color book for artists of all ages.  The Oyster Trailblazer Calendar is a 101 on precious bivalves, sharing their abundant benefits that include cleaning our waters, protecting our shorelines from erosion and feeding us with some of the tastiest and most sought after cuisine while providing huge nutritional benefits. The Original Oyster House will donate 1,000 calendars on a first-come, first-serve basis to educators who can integrate information into their science program or to utilize them as rewards for environmental stewardship. The calendars will also be included in the Original Oyster House giving back program.

"Considering that 85% of the world’s oyster reefs have been lost and that the northern Gulf of Mexico is one of the last places on earth where restoration efforts like the Mobile Bay Oyster Gardening Program and the Oyster Shell Recycling Program can be successful, we as a community must protect our oyster reef for generations to come,” stated P.J. Waters, scientist and coordinator of the Oyster Trail. "Inspiring more oyster trailblazers is really what we hope the calendar can accomplish. We want kids especially to recognize the valuable treasures oysters bring to our ecosystem and through science, collaboration and gardening, how we can help restore the reef in our Gulf waters.”

The oyster calendar, illustrated by local artist Alex VanArsdale, captures regional landscape, culture and folklore. The calendar also includes the Oyster Trail sculptures scattered along the Gulf Coast as well as Gulf Coast Ducks, Battleship Alabama and the Original Oyster House coupons. Each 4’ fiberglass oyster is embellished by artists and tells important facts about oysters including their economic and environmental contributions.

After two successful sponsorships of Oyster Trail Sculptures, the Original Oyster House recognized the valuable work of Waters and Marie Dyson who both coordinate the Oyster Trail and the Mobile Oyster Gardening Program. The company wanted to do its part in helping educate the community about oyster reef restoration and was the first restaurant to sign up for the Oyster Shell Recycling Program, which launched in October of 2016 and will begin in Gulf Shores at the end of January. 

The Original Oyster House (OOH) has two locations, Mobile: 3733 Battleship Parkway, on the Causeway and Gulf Shores: 701 Hwy 59 on the Original Oyster House Boardwalk. Both locations offer spectacular waterfront views and have been celebrated as the area’s finest family restaurants for the past 30+ years.

The Mobile Gardening Program is a volunteer-based project which focuses on education, restoration/enhancement, and research by bringing the reef to the people. Now in its eleventh year of operation, Oyster Gardeners have produced nearly 500,000 oysters for restoration and enhancement efforts within Mobile Bay.
