Super Bowl champion and high-performance training professional team to deliver elite training and fitness option

Winning a Super Bowl is a singular achievement for any athlete. It is universally understood to require peak fitness, discipline, faith in oneself, and a passionate commitment from a like-minded and talented team. When Isaiah Stanback, NFL veteran and Super Bowl champion, retired from football, he turned his focus to helping others on their own journeys to personal fitness, discipline, and faith. With partner Jared Harrison, Stanback founded Steadfast Fitness, a personal training and fitness facility that provides the “team” member needed to achieve these goals. When their growing enterprise changed facilities to accommodate demand for its elite training services, they turned to IDIS for a security solution.

Co-founder Stanback was a starting quarterback and MVP for the University of Washington Huskies. Drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 2007, Stanback went on to enjoy a six-year career in the NFL, highlighted by a 2011 Super Bowl victory with the New York Giants. Following his NFL career, Stanback earned a MBA from the George Washington University School of Business and looked for an opportunity to translate the lessons of resilience achievement learned during his football career into a meaningful way to help others. Harrison is a lifetime athlete and former football player for the University of North Texas, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology, with a minor in Health Promotions. A specialist in cardiovascular training, strength training, plyometrics, aerobics, and sport specific training, Harrison paired with Stanback to achieve a mutual dream of delivering values-based fitness training and personal coaching to those committed to their own fitness goals.


State-of-the-art surveillance to ensure
safety and security

Stanback and Harrison’s new Steadfast Fitness training center required a dependable system with 24/7 live monitoring and recording to ensure a safe environment for those working and training at the facility, enhance physical security for the center and equipment, and maintain insurance compliance. With an eye to the future, the co-founders also wanted a flexible system that could be easily and affordably scaled to accommodate future expansions of the popular and growing Steadfast Fitness operation.

" Everybody at IDIS has been excellent! We don’t want this to be the end – we can always upgrade the cameras and add more cameras; we have that flexibility. With the costs that we are incurring right now of expanding our business, getting a [surveillance] solution that is adequate is obviously important, but knowing that we can easily expand that system in the future is reassuring for me. "
