Made In Fresno: World Cup Teams Train On Keiser Equipment

Posted: Updated:
Five World Cup Soccer teams have taken training equipment made in Fresno to the sports compound in Brazil.  Team USA, England, Holland, Germany and Mexico all train on equipment made by Keiser Corporation in Fresno.

Dennis Keiser's company has been catering to the training needs of athletes for 37 years.  When England qualified for the World Cup team members insisted on Kaiser.  "Their players play for teams that already have our equipment.  The national team is made up of players from various teams.  The players get to the national team and demanded that the national team buy Keiser."

Keiser is no stranger on the professional sports circuit.  All but one major league baseball team has Keiser equipment in their training rooms.  That's because athletes want to train at full speed.  "They're looking at being able to create a force at speeds they're going to be performing on the field.  It's not like body building where we train a slow controlled speed."

The stationery bike is the biggest seller for World Cup Soccer.  Team Germany alone bought sixteen bikes.  The price tag is $1900.  Keiser has been around since the late 70's.  Dennis Keiser calls the company's success rewarding because its' mission has been to change the way people train for performance.
