For almost forty years, Keiser has been the innovative leader improving the way people of diverse ages and abilities exercise, train for sports and rehab from injury. It was in 1978 that Dennis Keiser introduced the first air powered variable resistance machines to the market place. Keiser’s pneumatic resistance offered therapists the ability to train the central nervous system earlier in the rehabilitation process. Air virtually eliminated the painful effects of momentum while the Keiser variable resistance cam enabled lifters to successfully overcome inertial forces at points where they were at most risk of soft tissue injury. Keiser continues to introduce cutting edge solutions, from award winning indoor fitness cycles to elite testing equipment, strength products and stretching machines. The real secret to Keiser’s longevity and success has been and remains its people and the success experienced by their customers.

Rock Steady Boxing is a nonprofit organization founded in Indianapolis in 2006 with a mission to empower people to “fight back” against Parkinson’s disease (PD), a progressive, incurable, neurodegenerative movement disorder.
RSB gives people with PD hope by improving their quality of life through a non-contact, boxing-inspired fitness curriculum. Professional boxers condition for optimal agility, speed, muscular endurance, accuracy, hand-eye coordination, footwork and overall strength to defend against and overcome opponents. At RSB, PD is the opponent, and scientific research demonstrates that forced, intense exercise may actually be neuroprotective, slowing the progression of the disease. Currently there are 600 affiliates in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and 30 international locations.

Instead of a frantic race to cure disease after the fact, the partnership can increasingly help individuals and health professionals act to prevent the onset of disease or, in many cases, slow the progression of disease through exercise, nutrition and lifestyle choices.
