The ‘Dead Pool’

So-called ‘dead pool’ lists are common in the tech industry, where companies launch and die at an exceptional rate. While most of the office fitness industry players are booming in growth along with the rising tide, a few have perished along the way. It is with no great pleasure that after many years following this industry from its nascency we have seen enough companies go out of business that we’re compelled to catalog them here in our own dead pool list for the office fitness industry.

It is our general practice to preserve all of our reviews for posterity, and these are no exception. We do this primarily to help former customers of these companies determine the status of the manufacturers in the event they go Googling for information on warranty service.

If you come across any of our products reviews where you believe the manufacturer is no longer in business please do leave us a comment below so that we can investigate its status.

The Dead Pool Watch List

These are companies that appear to still be actively advertising and operating a website but their internet traffic scores, as measured by, are zero, or near enough to zero that they appear to be potentially headed to the dead pool in the near future.
