Their company was started in early 2007 after “out of necessity” Rick designed 2 unique pieces of equipment to use in his own gym and realized others would like these, as well. It evolved into two product lines and a number of patents on his designs; the DeadZone Ramps and the Pit Shark line of products. Rick has been a weightlifter for over 40 years and his products are his own design and reflect Rick's years of experience and expertise in weight training. Rick is the one mainly involved with product design and together Rick and Janie oversee the manufacturing and day to day challenges of their company.

Pit Shark equipment is known for de-loading the spine and built-in safety while doing some of the most important foundation strength movements used in strength training at any level. Everybody deserves the same quality of equipment and safety, whether its in a top facility or the home gym. Pit Shark and DeadZone Ramps customers include NFL, MLB, NBA, collegiate, law enforcement, military, rehab facilities, high schools, commercial and private gyms, performance fitness centers, as well as, many home gyms. When Rick's not training in his own gym, he's on-the-road doing Pit Shark demos and talking with coaches and those who also share a love for weight training. Whether it’s working with a group of athletes in a training center or those hard core guys training in their garages, it's great to hear how the equipment has added such variety to their training.

Few men have made the impact upon the areas of health, fitness, sports performance and medical rehabilitation as Dennis L. Keiser.  His innovations have changed the way athletes train, physical therapists program rehabilitation, older adults retain quality of life, and the general population stays fit. Keiser’s fascination with equipment, particularly engines, stretches back to his youth growing up on a central California farm.  It was not long after graduating from Cal Poly, SLO with a mechanical engineering degree that Keiser was hired to design the first variable resistance machines for a leading manufacturer. During the intensive study for this project, Keiser became convinced that better training options than iron existed.  A conversation with his father led him to examine the possibilities from pneumatic resistance, compressed air. Together with his younger brother Randy, Dennis Keiser formed Keiser Corporation in 1977 and in 1978 introduced the first air powered variable resistance machines for building strength and power.  In the years since, Keiser equipment has played a significant part in World Records, gold medal performances, and championships in every major sport. In 2006 Dennis Keiser revolutionized indoor fitness cycling with the introduction of a bike that relied upon magnets – eddy current – for resistance.  Since then, Keiser’s M series products have become the best-selling indoor fitness cycles in the World. Keiser has been the holder of nineteen patents for his innovations and designs.
