Jeff Connors here, welcome to Fire and Falcon!
Fire and Falcon is the result of over a decade of blood, sweat and tears. About 12 years ago, I was a boxer. Semi-pro but nothing like Tyson or Mayweather. I would go through hours of training, 7 days a week, for months on end. Most days were ok, but some were the most grueling and painful experiences of my life. I found that my muscles were not recovering as fast as I wanted them to with stretching alone.
I wanted something better. Something that gave reliable muscle recovery in the comfort of my own home. Funnily enough, it was an episode of Friends that gave me the idea. Watching the scene when Monica was giving Chandler an awful massage. That was the solution! Massage therapy. I took to researching and discovered percussive massage therapy. It's like those Thai ladies that pound away at your muscles to loosen them up.
Fast forward a few months and the first prototype of the A1 was born. It was a drill with a jigsaw attachment and a stress ball on the end. Good idea, terrible execution. I ended up with bruises all over my legs and aching muscles for days.
Back to the drawing board. Within a year, alongside my good friend and co-founder Mark Bridges, we created the A1. Finally, we had something that actually helped muscle recovery. Honestly, I've never been more proud than the moment when we first released the A1. The response from users was overwhelmingly positive and I knew we were onto something.
Two years later, after several more iterations of the A1, the Phoenix A2 was born. More power, more relief and a better design. This would be the new standard for percussive massage therapy.
Now, finally we are proud to release the A3. We can't wait for you to try it out and see how amazing it is. On behalf of all the Fire and Falcon team, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to read our story and find out about us. My team works hard to help our customers and it's heartwarming when a customer writes a review, or reads our story. I hope that you take hold of the opportunity to get your own A3. It's changed my life and thousands more, I know you will love it too.
