Self-Care Startup, The Beam by Nimbleback is all about a Happy, Healthy You!

Get ready to release, relax and restore your core!

2 Canadian women had a dream; to live life without back pain. After years of experiencing the unpleasantness of back tension, Becky Goulet and Christa Geddes found an at-home solution to back, neck, and shoulder tension. They founded Nimbleback Inc. and created The Beam, a yoga-style tool designed to release, relax and restore the core. 

Becky and Christa met on the 1st day of elementary school and have been suffering from back pain since their early 20s. The two 40-year-old women have learned firsthand that they need The Beam to release muscle tension from injuries, stress, bad habits, and aging. For years, they tried different tools, but it wasn’t until they discovered stretching with a piece of foam that supported their spine during a yoga class that they found relief. Building their business from concept to demonstrating their product on national television has been an exciting ride. Bringing a new fitness product to the market is no small task, but one that Christa and Becky met head-on, with the end goal being to get The Beam into the hands of other back pain sufferers who would benefit from its use. 

“People just don’t know what it is or how to use it,” says Nimbleback Inc.’s President/Co-Founder, Becky Goulet. “Then after they try it, they are impressed with the immediate results that it has for their mind & body.”

Nimbleback took their business to the next level after their 60-second pitch on The Marilyn Denis Show on CTV. The judges were looking for a product that speaks to the consumer, has longevity, and is on-trend to what the market is today. “I love this product.,” says Kelley Keehn. Judges Debbie Travis, Amber MacArthur, and Kelley Keehn chose The Beam as the winner of the Mompreneur segment. Immediately after airing, Beam sales hit record high numbers, thanks to the exposure by the show.  This was when the two women knew that the demonstration of using The Beam was a key component to their future success.

Rosalie Brown, one of the most influential personal trainers, was introduced to The Beam while on Today’s Shopping Choice. Rosalie fell in love with the product.  “I was introduced to The Beam at TSC, and it’s been an easy and fun tool to implement and introduce to friends and family while relaxing at the cottage.” As a trainer, Rosalie has helped many women feel their best. She is an expert in the field of home fitness. She has been a long-time presenter for the Total Gym and Simply Fit board and has developed and starred in training videos for these products.

The Beam has been featured on Happy, Healthy You on Today’s Shopping Choice with ten television appearances. This device has also been sold on Amazon, Walmart, Lumino Health | Sun Life, PC Health, and League. Having The Beam featured with other great products to enhance your health has been rewarding for Becky & Christa, and the two hope to continue building awareness of the many benefits of using The Beam.

As Becky and Christa look to the next five years of their business, they reflect on their Go To Market strategy. They will prepare for their next challenge of navigating the current supply chain issues worldwide to serve their future customers. The two women entrepreneurs are seeking a partner to help them grow their business.  To date, they have sold 7,000 beams, but they know their sales will increase by partnering with an investor who can help them with marketing, distribution, and retail opportunities. 

The Beam by Nimbleback has received top-rated reviews and is a product that customers want to help them live healthier lifestyles. 

Top Rated Testimonials 

Lumino Health employees have incorporated The Beam into their daily wellness routine.

  1. After suffering injuries from two motor vehicle accidents, I’ve dealt with back and neck pain for most of my adult life.  Being active in Yoga and Pilates and regular treatments from various practitioners have helped manage the pain.  I began using the beam in June 2015, which has dramatically impacted my everyday life and compliments my treatments as a bonus.  I use the beam daily, and I find the mornings the most valuable after being static for several hours. As a bonus, you can take the beam anywhere you go. It fits great in a carry-on! Devon M
  2. I used The Beam last night for only ten minutes. After getting up, I felt like I had just had an hour massage! I suffer from chronic pain due to reoccurring injuries/shoulder dislocations, which I’ve had a couple of operations to correct. I’ve never had an at-home product that works this well and makes me feel so great, with minimal effort!!! Today I am using it to support my back at my desk, at the office, and it is remarkable the difference it has made, and it is only noon!!!! I’m so in love with my Beam and haven’t even had it for 24 hours. Thank you so much! This is seriously going to change my life.   Sarah K
  3. As a busy mom and fitness trainer, I often neglect to stretch and get the regular massage treatments my body requires. When I start to feel tight, I break out The Beam and allow my body to ease into the floor and release unwanted tension gently. It has been a great tool, and I highly recommend it to others who need an at-home treatment.  Veronica C.
  4. As a dental hygienist who has been practicing for over 16 years, I accept that having a bad back was “part of the job.”  Well, not anymore!  Since I started using The Beam, I’ve noticed a significant difference in how I feel throughout the day!  Using it daily for 5-10 minutes allows me to feel stretched and relaxed. The best part of The Beam is that it can be used anywhere, anytime and the exercises they provide are easy, yet very effective.  I would recommend The Beam to my fellow dental professionals because we can all benefit from backs that do not ache during the day. You owe it to yourself to take care of your back, and this product makes it effortless.  Cathy C
