With an inquisitive mind, Justin Elledge developed a desire for building products when he was a child. Through the years, some never got a sniff, while others scratched the surface en route to being marketed.
Always looking to reinvent himself, Elledge found a new target in athletics.
With the level of sports participation brimming and muscles constantly aching, the Montrose resident sought out a creative idea geared for athletes suffering from sore arms and shoulders.
Elledge developed the Wonderweight, a device weighing between two and four pounds designed to strengthen shoulder muscles without causing traumatic stress. The device resembles a traditional free weight in which the top and bottom portions are flat and rotate. The object is designed for users to spin the flat portions while holding it in an upward position.
