The Jacobs Ladder X ladder-climbing exercise machine is designed specifically for training fitness enthusiasts, athletes, and professionals. JLX marks the first major redesign to Jacobs Ladder in over 20 years and offers four different climbing positions to train different muscle groups at different intensity levels. The JLX also features a redesigned display and dashboard, providing more feedback and information on workout intensity levels based on speed.


Jacobs Ladder is the machine that started it all, and with the JLX, we’ve refreshed our most popular cardio machine. With a new design that offers four different climbing positions and a new dashboard that provides more insights into your workout, it’s time to see why people love to hate it.

The JLX is an amazing piece that will be the gem of your workout regimen.  At Cardio Nation we want you to truly love your equipment and enjoy working out.  If you would like a little more information about stairmill type machines like the JLX but aren't sure which machine is best, you can visit our guide to stairmills to get a bit smarter when looking for the right workout machine.


Below is a list of recommendations and safety precautions.

  • Always warm-up at the slowest speed for at least two minutes. In your initial cardio workouts, it is best to pace yourself to gain an understanding of the machine intensity.
  • Use opposing arm and leg movements (i.e., right arm/left leg — left arm/right leg).
  • Never take more than one step at a time.
  • Practice going slow and allow the cardio machine to stop until you feel comfortable with the machine.
  • Keep the spine straight and relaxed (don’t hunch your back) – Upper body weight should be supported by arms.
  • If you feel dizzy while using the hand-over-hand movements, use the side rails and concentrate on a lower-body workout.
  • Some people may be more comfortable wearing gloves.
