Albert Earl Carter, Founder, Olympian, Innovator
Albert Earl Carter, founder of AIR, Inc., is the pioneer of Rebound Exercise, best selling author and the Lead Designer of the "best-built, most innovative rebounders on the planet."
Carter attended both Oklahoma State University and the University of Utah with full scholarships in wrestling. He qualified twice for Olympic wrestling competition, and won all-around gymnastic champion in the states of Montana, Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
Sponsored by the Marriott Corporation, Carter’s “Gymnastic Fantastic” professional trampoline team gave over 500 performances to more than 500,000 spectators in 1974 and 1975. Carter trained his own children on the trampoline and placed them in the show as well. He was amazed to observe their remarkable endurance gains, dramatic coordination improvements, and accelerated mental development.
Recognizing that his family’s exceptionally good health, superior strength, and other benefits were connected to his work on the trampoline, Carter set out to discover the positive effects of rebounding on the human body. His research resulted in the start of a new industry, the book Rebound To Better Health, 1977, and the development of the first home-sized rebounder “Dyna-Bound”. His second book The Miracles of Rebound Exercise, published in 1979, became a national Health and Fitness 1.3 million best-seller.
Rebounding was the springboard for Carter’s thirst for knowledge regarding good health. “The Healthy Cell Concept,” presented in his next books The New Miracles of Rebound Exercise and The Cancer Answer, is the result of over a decade of research on all the components necessary for perfect health. More information on the Healthy Cell Concept can be found here.
As a lecturer and educator, Carter has shared his findings on health and rebound exercise all over the world. In 1983, by special invitation of the Hong Kong government, Carter taught 35,000 members of the country’s police and fire departments about the Healthy Cell Concept and the benefits of rebounding. Since that time, he has also presented to numerous medical groups worldwide and has appeared on national television in the U.S., Australia, Hong Kong, and the Philippines.
