Keiser Central to Dodgers Program
“It’s awesome,” and “stunned” were a few of the adjectives heard when the Los Angeles Dodgers unveiled their new weight room within Dodger Stadium. The upgraded facility, shown in the accompanying photo from the Dodgers photo-blog, is part of a $100 million renovation project at Dodger Stadium and a significant feature of the weight room is Keiser pneumatic resistance equipment.
"The architects tell me it's the largest in the Major Leagues. The latest, the newest, the most modern equipment," Dodgers’ President Stan Kasten said of the new weight room. Keiser is a key part of the training program employed by the Dodgers’ Director of Strength and Conditioning, Stephen Downey. Dodgers’ players will train on 2 Keiser POWER racks, a Keiser half rack, 2 Keiser Air300 squats, a Keiser Air 300 Runner, a Keiser Triple trainer and 4 Keiser performance trainers. In addition Dodgers’ players will have Keiser’s renowned eddy current M3 indoor fitness cycles and popular Total Body Trainers at their disposal in the new facility.
“We call it a health club,” Kasten said at a media event. He praised the teams’ chairman Mark Walters as the driving force behind the project. "He said to make it bigger," said Kasten. "He wanted it more like your favorite health club, a place where they like to work out. We want to provide a facility with the best chance to extend their careers.”
Keiser is proud to have been chosen and wishes the Dodgers much success in 2013.
