I got my Pit Shark today. And I've got to tell you I used it at Ben Prentiss's place and I thought it was a nice piece (hence the reason I ordered one).
Well I was wrong! After playing with it today for a few hours, in my opinion if your facility doesn't have a Pit Shark in it then your facility isn't worth going to!
Thank you for making such a great piece of equipment!

The Pit Shark has been a great addition to the NSCA Performance Center, I've used other belt squats over my career as a strength coach and the Pit Shark exceeds any other brand. Initially I used the Pit Shark with our athletes who can't have a bar on their back but as I've gotten more familiar with the Pit Shark I've found it's very versatile for a number of different lower and upper body exercises (zercher squats, good mornings, pull-ups, pushups, dips). It has a comfortable belt and a hook up that adjusts easily depending on the size of the athlete. The 2" bar attachments for upper body training are great for different variations of traditional upper body exercises, as well as improving grip strength at the same time. It's also space efficient taking up only a 4' x 6' space in the facility plus the Pit Shark looks impressive, it's always one of the first pieces of equipment that people ask about when they see it in our facility. Anyone looking for a belt squat machine should consider the Pit Shark for their facility.
